Would I be a fool to start the Steelers Defense against the Ravens this week in FF?

    I'm conflicted :smiley1:. Have been contemplating sitting them this week.

    The other defense I have is the Vikings. They got crushed with -7 points against the Rams. So good choice not to go with them LMAO.

    The Steelers actually are tied with the 6th most points in FF in my league (were tied with the Vikings). Ints, Fumbles (forced and recoveries, etc despite how poorly they've played.

    The defense has been abysmal so far, but for some reason I'm thinking the defense is in for a big game. The reason being playing this team so much.

    But.. Flacco is playing hot with 900 something yards in three games. They played great against us last year after Shazier went down.

    Tough decision. I might be best off sitting the defense this week. Not sure if I have the heart to though.

    I'm thinking they might pull off a big performance this week, but the fact I'm a fan might be clouding my reason lol

    Steelers defense vs a Ravens team that has failco, who btw is pretty good at Heinz, as well as we can't stop the run or TE's... yeah I expect them to go off for 30+

    At some point, the D will almost shut down someone having a bad day.

    I’m trying to figure that out as I have the Eagles D and gotta fill that Bye week.

    Chargers are playing the 49ers with who at QB?

    The smart bet this week is the over of 51 on the game. I won the last three weeks on the over. Shouldn't be any different this week.

    Yes, the Browns. They're playing the Raiders which have so far been terrible on offense.

    I might have no choice.

    I think the Steelers defense would be a tough play for me. Especially with Hilton out (if he is). And now Edmunds will be full time since Burnett is unlikely to go. John Brown is healthy and he's a tough guy to cover. And the Ravens are averaging over 30 a game.

    I picked up the Browns last week after watching them keep the Steelers and Saints in check. Netted me 10 points against the Jets.

    That defense is pretty good.

    Decided to pick up the Browns defense last night after getting on here. Has to be better upside potential for at least next week.

    Words of wisdom from Snoop Doggy Dogg. I'm playing. Believe it or not, the Steelers ranked #6 for defenses in the league. The reason was sacks, ints etc..

    So I will keep my eye on them, but for now I picked up the Browns as a safer option this week against the Raiders.
