I have the Cards right now.....Looking at the D/ST rankings....everyone has the Cards in the top 5 this week @MIN...any reason why they are rated that high vs MIN? do their OLine suck or something? AP/Harvin/Rudolph/Simpson

I was thinking about picking up the Raiders but everyone has the Raiders in the 15-20 range while the Cards are top 5

As a ARZ owner...think i'll jump the ship to OAK

the Cards face the 49ers and GB the next two weeks,meanwhile the Raiders get JAX and KC

Yeh, ditto here but I am jumping ship and boarding the Colts D.

Laugh all you want but when they end up with 3 picks, 4 sacks and a TD, you will say huh, that rotdr is alright.

I think Cards may be ok against 9ers, meaning anywhere from 9-11 pts. But GB, bye, ATL...scary matchups. I may roll with my Cards D, but after SF, I think I'm going with Denver (after a week 8 Saints matchup, their schedule gets VERY tasty).

I have AZ, but dont like their next couple of matchups... ATL was dropped due to bye week and DEN is also available. I'm planning on rostering two DSTs here on out, who do you like better to pair with AZ for the rest of the season?

ATL or DEN?

other notable DSTs: SD, STL

Keep rolling with the Vikings D this Thursday against J. Freeman and a Bucs team that has been doing pretty good?

Part of me knows Thursday games end up being a defensive goldmine...

Packers week 2 - 18 points

Giants week 3 - 16 points

Ravens week 4 - 12 points

Rams week 5 - 18 points

49ers week 7 - 11 points

Vikings are good at forcing turnovers. 10 on the year and 3 TDs and Josh Freeman is good for giving them up (8 in 7 games). Josh Freeman also has given up 8 sacks in 7 games. The problem comes with the fact that TB has been a decent scoring defense so most of their points are going to have to come from turnovers and sacks.

I think I like NE vs STL better this week.

Kickers I'm considering:

Stick with Lawrence Tynes vs Dallas

-or-

Suisham vs WAS

Mason Crosby vs JAC

Matt Prater vs NO

Adam Vinatieri @ TEN

Rob Bironas vs IND

For Defense:

Sticking with the Packers vs JAC, but I'm seriously considering grabbing MIA for ROS after that. Look at this schedule:

@NYJ @IND TEN @BUF SEA NE @SF JAC

BUF

Or the DET, who is @ JAC next week.

Looking for another Defense with the Ravens woes (plus they're on bye) and Cowboys, who aren't bad in real life but just doesn't get fantasy points.

Much to my surprise, Miami is on waivers right now so I'm considering picking them up, maybe even #1 on my waiver wire (over Rashad Jennings). See Trifecta's post as to why.

The only thing that makes me reconsider right now is Detroit on waivers, and they're home this week against Seattle (Russell Wilson - 2 TDS: 7 INTS on the road).

What d'ya think? Should I go long term with Miami, or go for the home run this week with Detroit?

Detroit also has Jac in week 9. It's hard to beat those 2 matchups. Tough call, but if you need to win NOW, go detroit. If you are in a comfortable position in your league, go long term with the Dolphins.

I know kickers are a bit of a crapshoot, but I'd like some feedback on who you would take between these:

Tynes @ DAL

Suisham vs WAS

Mason Crosby vs JAC

Matt Prater vs NO

Adam Vinatieri @ TEN

Rob Bironas vs IND

Yeah I'm baffled someone dropped them in my league, a league which is pretty intense with waivers. Someone seriously must have needed the roster spot and had a very good D starting.

I'm making them my #1 Waiver Pickup over Rashad Jennings, I might be 3-4 but I'm optimistic about my team and I feel like Dolphins D can help me sneak into the playoffs. I just don't trust Cowboys D enough to come off my bench for the rest of the season, and my starting D the Ravens...well...yeah....
