    Tough Defensive Choice

    My team is 5-7 and is in 9th out of 12th, but breaking into the top 6 is just a week away. I need some help on choosing what defense to play.

    Currently on my team:
    Detroit D
    Oakland D

    On the free agents:
    San Diego D
    Kansas City D
    Cleveland D
    Jacksonville D
    Tampa Bay D
    Carolina D
    Miami D
    Minnesota D
    Seattle D
    Indianapolis D

    I know I shouldn't start Detroit because they play a tough Saints offense who will carve up yards on them easily. Oakland plays a tough Miami team that relies heavily on the run and Oakland's run defense is ranked 27th so I don't know if I should start either of my defenses. I could pick up Kansas City who faces a banged-up Chicago offense who ranks 12th against the pass so I look for them to pick Hanie a few times, but they are ranked 26th against the run so Forte could run all over them, but with that line of Chicago's Forte might just take a seat. San Diego plays a run heavy Jacksonville team with MJD coming out of the backfield. San Diego is one of the best against the pass (ranked 9th) but one of the worst against the rush (ranked 25th). Cleveland's D has been hot, but facing an excellent Baltimore team I think the add for that team is out of question.

    So basically I'm debating between these 3 defenses. Oakland, San Diego, and Kansas City. I appreciate all opinions.
