I drafted the Pats DST and have been playing them weekly. Is there any reason to bench them and roster another defense? The only available defenses available and worth stashing in my league for weeks 15 and 16 are Kansas City, Green Bay, and the Giants.
I’ve secured my playoff spot (9-3) in a 3-way tie for first place.
My DST model has NE projected as the DST1 this week and RoS, so I would not bench them. The only reason I would pick up one of the other defenses is to block an upcoming opponent who might want to play them. But I would happily roll with NE (I have them in two leagues). My DST model is below for reference. Good luck!
Please check out my Week 13 streaming post where I provide weekly and rest-of-season rankings, scoring projections and waiver recommendations for QBs, TEs and DSTs. Comments and feedback are welcome. Thanks!
