I thnk the weather helps...With the snow and wind, its gonna be hard to pass...but the steelers are gonna pound the rock, and should have a lead vs matt flynn and be trying to run out clock...however, lynch is a stud, and he has historically done very well vs ARI, even this year. I would go with lynch, but it is close

I dont think you can do that...Im playing KC this week, and have CLE and DET im debating between, but with indy struggling on offense vs competent teams, and KC going off the past two weeks, i think you have to roll with them. They have the safest floor. Remember everyone was all over the raiders a few weeks ago vs NYJ, and we know how that worked out.

The giants have consistently given up the most fantasy points to D/ST all year, and besides SEA/ KC/ and CAR, every other team they played have been in the bottom half of all defensive ranks...Dal, Phi, Was, Oak, SD, GB, Den, etc. Their "best" game they still gave up 5 points to Washington, and there is only one other time that they gave up less than 9 points to opposing D/ST's. I think Det is about as safe as they come this week, regardless of what eli did last week. I dont know why anyone would start NYG D tho, unless that was a typo... Det doesn't give up many points to D/ST at all...
All that being said, SF D has a nice floor, but I think Det could really just tee off this week. I dont think you go wrong with either, but while the falcons haven't been as atrocious lately, the giants have been a turnover machine all year. I'd probably stick with SF if you want the safer pick, and if you need a high upside D go Lions

If Rodgers plays, I go Stacy, Lacy, Allen. If he doesn't, I go Allen, Lacy, Bell. With no A Rod I think PIT will play some decent D and use Bell a ton to control clock. TB is a pretty decent matchup vs the run, but i think regardless any of those 4 are gonna be very good.

Im sure you've gotten this already, but its the defense streamer question.... DET, CLE, SD or TEN? Leaning DET right now

I just did my analysis on my post entitled defense? Im leaning DET, because NYJ play very good at home usually, but went more in depth in my other post if you're interested in why. I think DET safer, CLE more upside but could burn u

Lol yeh that is the least statistically based argument ive ever seen. I think both will be good but...Defenses generally do much better at home. NYG are without there best weapon (Cruz), and g men want to run the ball but i doubt will have much luck vs NYG. Plus the g men have given up at least 2 sacks in every game... and if you look at their schedule before SEA, they've given the most points to Defenses even though they havent faced a decent D since week 4 besides CAR and KC theyve played...SD, WASH, DAL, GB, OAK, PHI, MIN, CHI, and DEN. Its not elite Defenses that are killing them, its bottom barrel D's like PHI, OAK, and DAL. I think Det has highest ceiling, no way they dont put up at least 6 points.
CLE has more upside, but they give up so many points, and NYJ have been very good at home. I have a feeling the jets will play hard for Rex ryan when they have nothing else to play for, although CLE could still put some points up, but they are probably gonna be without haden, which kills there pass d... That's my analysis, I think im going with DET, but ill probably go back and forth come sunday.

If he is talking about antonio brown, stick with him over crab. Think you should be good, one of foles or mccoy will have a great game, possibly both, and you dont have a bad matchup. Only TE is a little shaky...can u get delanie walker?

Now that im looking, it looks like buffalo game its going to be raining with 20 mph winds, so might check out that MIA D, although buf doesnt pass too much anyway
- Andrew Andrew Dec 19, 2013 7:54 PM Flag
Stuck with the same issue. I think im down to detroit or CLE. I like MIA but i feel like thad and EJ are about the same player. Buf played MIA with thad earlier in the year and did ok vs MIA....and it looks like DET's secondary should be at full strength so im leaning towards them. Giants have packed it in and without their best WR, and they wont be able to run vs DET and have to pass to try and keep up. Thats when bad ELi comes out i hope
i have my pick of all the good streamers...Det vs NYG, CLE @ NYJ, TEN@ JAX, SD vs OAK. I think i wanna go vs. one of the ny teams, but last time i streamed vs the jets at home it burned me badly, and cleveland has given up crazy points lately. What do yall think?

Cooper and Decker...Shorts will get covered by haden...no bueno. if you wanna shoot for the moon i go harvin...why did u stash him unless u gonna use him?
- Andrew Andrew Nov 27, 2013 1:36 PM Flag
def go with crosby...this week detroit gives up a ton of pts to kickers, and once rodgers is back hes gonna kill it like earlier. I have same predictament and im sticking with crosby for the playoffs
