Rest of season and playoffs

Drop Patriots defense for Eagles defense

1 Like

You should NOT drop the Pats DST for the Eagles (assuming Iā€™m understanding the question correctly). The Eagles have two very good matchups the next two weeks and my DST model has them projected to be the DST3 over those two weeks. However, the Pats are still projected to be the DST1 those same weeks by a pretty good margin. In addition, the Pats are projected to be the DST1 Weeks 15 to 16, where the Eagles project as the DST14 (and the DST31 specifically on Week 16). So I would roll with the Pats. I would only consider picking up the Eagles to block one of my likely playoff opponents from getting them, but again only if I have the roster space to hold them and keep the Pats. My DST model is below for reference. Hope this helps. Good luck!
