Based on matchup. Yes.

I played the Lions last week despite having the Panthers D and got 20 points out of them because they were playing the Jaguars. The Rams are another offensive team that is just plain bad in areas. Worth a play

Depends what your options are. I think we're going to see a heavy dose of Gurley.

I would pass.

Not that we havent been playing better on defense (we have) and not that the Rams aren't terrible (they are) but:

1) The Rams have our number, and I suspect GW will have a way to knock Drew around, turning it into a low scoring streetfight (remember Charles Brown?) and, more importantly;

2) You can bank on Goff catching fire and getting his first win against us. It's what we do. Think Tim Couch, RGIII, Ryan Lindley (or whoever that undrafted rookie for ARI was that beat us).

It is known.

If it makes you feel any better I might pick them up in my league. Next year I may actually stream defenses.

Edit. I'm definitely using them. Panthers play Oakland @ Oakland without Kuechly and a passrush that looks better at home than away against a QB with good pocket presence/ability to escape and weapons on the outside.

Even if we get a heavy dose of Gurley , i dont think he can do it against us by himself, we are pretty good against the run. If im correct. Our defense hasnt given up a 100 yard rusher yet.

Someone missed the Atlanta game. They had something like 150 yards with a 10 ypc average.

Checking all the games, that was the only individual over 100, although a few teams ran for over 100 yards as a group.

Ok , only one game out of 10 , seahawks gave up their first 100 yard rusher to us. Im jus saying our run defense is better then previous years.

That is my strategy, in years past I have done well with Broncos and the Eagles when special teams get hot. This year I look for the defenses that are playing the Bear, Browns or Jags. . I did well last week with the Giants playing the Bears. This week the Giants pay the Browns, so i'll keep them over the Saints DST. We just don't finish teams and we don't get enough turnovers to warrant their use.

I see a lot of people picking them up for this coming week. I might get them as well. I am 2-9 this season so I am probably not the best person to listen to.

The obvious downside is the relative lack of turnovers and the obvious absence of a chance to get KR/PR for touchdowns
