Was planning on streaming the Buccaneers against Chicago today and saw the injury report: DE Jacquies Smith, DE Willi Clarke, LB Devonte Bond, CB Javien Elliot

Anyone with some defensive insight know how much of a hit this is to their prospects? I fully admit my ignorance of individual defensive players' worths and importance.

i want to thank everyone in hear for telling us how great the Jags are.  I dropped pitt's D for a team who has blake bortles as the QB. 

 

I got caught up in the hype and did the same thing. I don't blame anyone because it was my decision. After week 1 it was tough not to get excited.

Yeah I don't know how good the Jags are after allowing that many points, but I wouldn't completely dismiss them yet.  Ravens and Jets in the next two weeks, so they're still worth a short term hold IMO.  Anybody watch the Bucs to get an idea of whether they're legit or if they just took advantage of a crap Bears team?

Think a lot of people said not to play them this week.  I grabbed them because nothing else was available that  liked.  Im still keeping them as they have jets in week 4 and ROS is easy after PIT

Holding Jags or drop them for Miami and start streaming?

 

Jags get Baltimore this week (not that great of an offense, but could start in great positions due to Bortles) and in Week4 the Jets.

Quite good schedule after Pittsburgh.

 

Miami get the Jets (NO in Week 4, so they are just a one week play). It's a 14-Teamer so not that many options out there and I'm not willing to own 2 DST.

I've got an amazing return on the Detroit defense, which makes very little sense, but for some reason they are top in the league under my league's settings (this includes a healthy bonus for return yards). I'm going to roll the dice on them and keep them against Atlanta, although Miami against the Jets also sounds very, very tasty as a streaming option.

Anyone?

I'd keep Jacksonville. JAX looked prettty ok, and there's a good chance everybody will have a jetlag in London and Flacco will throw 3 interceptions. Hard to avoid tackles and sacks if you're .5 seconds slower than usual.

Nah, would roll with Miami. Solid D against an awful O? Sounds much better to me than a solid D (at best) against a powerhouse offense like ATL.

Detroit played Old-Palmer + injured DJ and awful Giants O with an returned Punt.

 

Go with Miami next week.
