If I'm starting Russ Wilson, still start CHI DST?


#1

In one league I’m in I stream DSTs - this week I felt best option is Chicago vs Seattle. But I have Russell Wilson as my QB. Would that make you want to grab a different defense this week since what ever happens basically negates one another?

Other options on the wire are
Jets DST vs MIA (then next week @CLE)
WSH DST vs IND
Giants DST @ DAL
49ers DST vs DET
Lions DST @ SF

Help!

Thanks all!

DST Help !!

I would hate to be in your position if cheering for both sides. I would choose another d but having both you could benefit from the others failure


#4

I would choose Washington’s d


#5

Yeah I truly have no idea what to do, like I want a lot of sacks for the d, some fumbles from anyone besides Russ but want Russ to score tds lol


#6

Pick up a different defense


#7

Which of those listed would you choose? None are that great compared to chicago


#8

I am starting Washington in my main money league this week


#9

I also am. Starting them


#10

I bet on both sides and it ended badly for me this week. I started the Ravens D hoping for turnovers and also started Green. 24.9 pts from Green burn -2 from Ravens D… lol

Started Saquon last week against my Jags defense… 20 from Barley and 16 from Jags defense. Wilson could get sacked a half dozen times, throw 2 interception–1 being a pick 6, and throw 4 tds and over 300 yards. Just trying to throw a positive spin here…


#12

I personally don’t like Washington’s D as an option this week. I know they are ranked high this week in the fantasy world but if you think about the amount of opportunities Indy will have on offense it’s alarming.

Indy’s D is bad… Skins expected to score a lot… where does that leave us? Leaves us with Indy pressing down the field and playing loose and easy trying to rally points. Just my opinion.


#13

WHo would you start?


#14

Ugh I was tilting towards benching them and then you come in here with positive spin! Dammit! Hahaha this thread encapsulates my dilemma perfectly. Because I can easily see what you’re saying, russ And chi dst are both fine but also what they’re saying where it just negates one another. If it wasn’t qb I wouldn’t care as much, like if I had Howard vs Seattle d I wouldn’t care I would start both. But with a qb vs a dst I feel is different, so much more impact on one another directly.


#15

I would probably go with the Bears or Jets both games are the lowest scoring games of the week predicted by Vegas


#16

Honestly start the Bears… in this case you shouldn’t be looking for another D in their place… you should be looking to stream a QB. Case Keenum or Tyrod Taylor would be better than Russ in my opinion


#17

Jets D and set it.


#18

I just couldn’t bring myself to say the Jets against my Dolphins. It’s been a rough 15 years for us.


#19

Your best bet when hunting for a D is to look for games with wild QBs that should be forced to throw a lot. like Luck for example will put up points… but He’ll throw picks and get sacked plenty… picking a D for a projected low scoring game has a lot of risk of the other team breaking 2 lucky runs for 14 points but giving up 0 turnovers and 0 sacks… the only way Id go out of my way to avoid D and QB stacking is if your QB loses points for getting sacked… Im in a league like that and its garbage… but yeah in that scenario you have 0 upside… otherwise wilson can throw a pick 6 and give up 4 sacks, yet still put up 25 fantasy points lol. This is also dependent on DST scoring… if your D can lose a lot of points for giving up a lot then I’d avoid it… but basically the difference in most formats between 14 and 34 points allowed is negligible enough that picks and sacks make up for it.

I usually don’t like to contradict my players with dst, but here is my thoughts. I don’t think you want to drop Chicago (I think they are the surprise dst team this year) but I also don’t think Wilson vs them is a big deal
For scoring . Wilson won’t turn the ball over and will score so there are your qb points. But the chi dst will get their points from sacks! Seattle Gave up 6 last week, I bet Mack gets 3-4 by himself
