Seattle comes into the season with a beat up backfield. Buffalo looks stout with Rex Ryan taking over. Houston and St. Louis could be big plays all season long. Don’t be the guy who drafts a defense in the 8th round.
4. St. Louis
6. NY Jets
12. New England
14. Green Bay
Don’t forget about Dallas either. Even without Orlando Scandrick the Dallas DST should be decent. Especially when Greg Hardy returns from suspension.
If you miss out on some of the top defenses and you have a deep bench, grab two and play the matchups. Especially a few weeks into the season if some of your top players have already had their bye week. I found myself doing this last season and it worked out pretty well.
