Thoughts on them home vs a Bucs offense that just hung 55 not the Rams D (with help from Goff)?  Line is only 4.5 right now with O/U at 47.5

Can Jameis keep it up or turn back into a pumpkin?

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Broncos OLB Bradley Chubb (knee) tore his ACL and is out for the year.

Chubb actually returned to Sunday's game with said ACL tear and played until the final whistle. Now 0-4 and having lost their best young player for the season, it's not a stretch to say the Broncos have hit rock-bottom. Chubb notched 12 sacks in his breakout rookie campaign and was on pace for career-high marks in tackles and quarterback hits before this speed bump. UDFA Malik Reed, who has one sack on the year, is the next man up for Denver.

I've been wondering about them, too. I think they'll do fine. They're at home. Winston has to account for a couple of turnovers sooner or later. And New Orleans' offense is less likely to commit turnovers. Bridgewater is more conservative, and unlike the Rams, they're not afraid to rely on their ground game. 

What about San Francisco vs. a Cleveland team that just lit up Baltimore?

Off this train for now. Going against my own principle and rolling out BUF/SF in one league.

The other one, I'm adding SF and riding it.

Got Bills but Titans out there.  Rather have the other side of that contest.

Exactly.

I know it was the Bengals but are the Steelers D approaching every week start?

I didn’t watch the game but streamed them and saw that they tore it up.

Did they look good or was it more the Bengals being bad? Minkah was a big add, and I figured it would instantly upgrade them. 

Also the later part of their schedule is quite juicy.

Agreed

Tons of great options

I like TEN first as they not only have a great matchup but have a great defense (except the one week I used them vs JAX)

I like Philly second only because they will be facing Luke Falk

I like SF 3rd. Decent matchup but I also think they can be a season long defense.

NO

 

Pit also looks like a possible season long defense. Tough matchup vs BAL but CLE did well against them.

Also, speaking of CLE, they've been a good defense since after week 1 and SF turned the ball over 5 times before the bye.

Carolina faces JAX who haven't been a great matchup but CAR has been sacking the hell out of everyone lately.

I was hoping for more from Jax against the Broncos. their next two matchups are not great (Carolina and NO) but they follow with Cincinnati and the Jets. May drop them for Philly this week to get the Jets matchup

 

Their next two matchups are against backup quarterbacks... but my confidence is waning. Ramsey is an issue.

 

Not sure whether to hold and drop someone for TEN this week, or, just cut the cord on JAX altogether.

That's a good point. I am debating whether to drop another player and just keep both NO and Jax but I am not in the habit of keeping two DSTs on a roster.

i thought there was talk of Darnold being back this week?  also not sure I would trust the Eagles at this point with their billions of injuries.

Picked up SF, but considering Carolina now.

Same boat. 

I played Denver against the almighty Menshew last week and it didn’t turn out so well.

I think I may hold San Fran. Monday night versus the browns seems like an okay matchup. The browns have been sort of hot and cold offensively which worries me.

Im sure I’ll need one point Monday night and be sweating it out.

San Francisco is a GOOD defense though so we can’t argue with that.

Holding both BUF and CAR currently, with TEN sitting there on the wire.  Really considering picking up TEN and dropping BUF with full intent of picking them back up during bye week because their schedule after is quite favorable

Dumped Baltimore and  grabbed NO. I believe Winston turns back into a turnover pumpkin this week and I just might ride that schedule to the bye as u mention.

@ Jax

@ Chicago 

Arizona

Anyone like the Chargers this week vs Flacco? Then have Pitt, @ Titans, @ Bears, next three weeks. 

Only other option is NO; but don’t want to mess with the Buccaneers offense.

Is anyone planning on keeping the Patriots the whole season?  I hate to cut such a well producing defense.  But their second half schedule is difficult.  Though Week 15 at Bengals is a very nice playoff matchup.  And Week 16 vs the Bills is nice, too.  Here is the Patriots' end of year schedule:

8 vs Browns

9 at Ravens

10 Bye          

11 at Eagles

12 vs Cowboys

13 at Texans

14 vs Chiefs

15 at Bengals

16 vs Bills

Set it and forget it besides when they play the chiefs. They have shown they are for real until they prove otherwise.

Is it worth stashing the Jets defense?  They have:

Week 9 - Dolphins

Week 10  - Giants

Week 11 -  Redskins

Week 12 - Raiders

Week 13 - Bengals

Week 14 - Dolphins

I'm hoping to go Jacksonville

7 vs Cinncy

8 vs Jets

then pivot to the Jets D for the above juicy schedule

I grabbed San Fran this week and rarely carry two defenses but Jets are sitting there and man do their defenses mesh well week to week.

San Fran 12-14 has Green Bay, Baltimore, NO.

Im sticking with the Steelers this week. Love the numbers they've been putting up and their schedule after the bye is juicy and playoff schedule is amazing.
