In a yardage league (points for yards given up)...could the Chiefs be a decent sleeper defense play today with Russel at QB? Or should I bank on another Delhomme from the Panthers against Atlanta at the Georgia Dome?

It is hard to say, our weakness at covering TE, and Russel's ability to only hit his TE could be a bad combo.

Yeah I hate to take the homer DEF...but right now I'm spot starting ATL in all three of my $$$ leagues and one of them is a defense heavy league and I hate to see Carolina wake up, thus tanking my fantasy week.

that's what I'm afraid of...but I'm praying for one more Delhomme and ATL DEF is actually decent this year.

I'm torn between the Eagles D and the Jets D. A strange part of me thinks the Jets bitch Brady today.

No Welker and a fired up Jets group.

Not sure how anyone would want to face NO at this point.

I would never start a defense against the Pats...just saying.

I think the real question is why did you even pick the Chiefs D to begin with.

I didn't.

They are on the waivers...I play matchups every week...I never draft a defense until the final round.

Well Drew Brees is no picnic either.

Chiefs or Falcons DEF have to be on waivers...I'd drop one or the other...defenses are a dime a dozen IMO.

Nope. They aren't.

It's also 5 dollars a transaction. I'm not a big fan of dropping a potentially really good unit to play a matchup.

It's a 14-team league so every team pretty much has 2 defenses.

Oh...well...I'd start Philly's defense...the Saints are always inconsistent...and the Patriots are the Patriots.

Hedge your bets and go with ATL. If the Chiefs play well and you don't play them, you get the benefit as a fan of having watched them play well. If they don't, then you know that you made the right fantasy choice.

Chiefs D or Eagles D (playing the Saints).

Nah...

The Chiefs final is going to be like 20-13...not sure who wins...but either way, both defenses will score between 5-13 traditional points.

Anyone know if Boldin is playing. All I can find is he is questionable.

NO and Brees have never been very good on the road against upper echelon D's like Philly. I would start Philly D in their house in a heartbeat and I don't care if it is against Brees. NO at home is $$ in the bank but on the road in a very hostile environment? IMHO NO struggles today especially with McNabb being out the Eagles really step up their play on both sides of the ball to give Kolb a chance.

Eagles D it is... see how easy I am.
