My usual philosophy is to carry one DST, and during the bye will just drop it and pick up another to stream However, this year I have the Bears, and with the way they’ve performed I’m not dropping them to the waiver wire for their bye (won’t get them back). So I’m debating whether it’s worth it to drop a skill position to pick up a second DST to play for the bye or just leave it empty and take the zero.
I’m 2-2 and up against a powerhouse this week (projected to be outscored by 15-20 points), but you never know and I’d hate to lose a close one having left a zero up there for the DST.
Was thinking of dropping Funchess to pick up a 2nd DST to stream this week. Spent some FAAB to get him last week, and even though I’m thinner at WR, I figured he’s the most droppable with WRs a little easier to come by on the waiver wire and the potential return of Olsen in a few weeks.
(1) Do you think it’s wise to drop Funchess to pick up a 2nd DST for the week, or am I better off just taking the zero & potentially losing the week to keep him?
(2) If you think I’m OK dropping him, which DST is the best stream for this week [best choices out there are Panthers (v. NYG), Ravens (@ Cle), 49ers (v. Ari), or Bengals (v. Mia)]?
