Defense Strategy for Thursday

Postby YouDownWithOBP? » Wed Dec 05, 2012 12:01 pm

I have Denver’s D, but due to injuries I am forced to play both Mcfadden and Brandon Myers. Oakland vrs Denver on Thursday. Should I throw Denvers D on my bench and grab Cleveland, San Diego or Pittsburgs D (all available) or am I over thinking this? I just feel this limits my upside. Standard defensive scoring system.

Start Myers and Denver D and sitting McFadden would be the best thing if you can manage it. Carson Palmer can still throw a pick sick and fumble away a touchdown. I wouldn't say it's an either/or here, Denver's still the D I'd want there.

Thanks for the input- unfortunately I've been destroyed by recent injuries, so a McFadden replacement would come from the waiver wire tonight (or David Wilson?). I already need to plug and play a WR from there, so basically could you pick 2 from this list (1 WR, 1 flex to replace McFadden, if I'm lucky enough to get the best two). Thanks again

Chris Givens- bad feeling someone else will take him before my first waiver pick though

I like Owens and Powell there for flex. Can't see either team pulling away from one another so the ground game should stay valid.

WR you didn't really list many options; Givens is still the first choice and then Wright for me. Hopefully Locker can be a little more accurate this sunday.
