3 worst offenses in the league (1 Viewer)

Detroit and Baltimore make me salivate.
totally right on w/ including Baltimore. I had to pick up a Def last week for Bye coverage. I went w/ Indy vs Baltimore and it worked out very well. But i think the emphasis on the immediate matchup is being overlooked. For instance, the Bucs host the Seahawks this Sunday and Seattle is w/o Hasslebeck. Whether Seneca Wallace or Charlie Frye start, i think there's the potential for some major points to be had. I don't know about others' league's but the Bucs Def is available in my league. But I'd like to hear what others say about Miami's Defense going against the hapless Ravens. I haven't watched much Miami games ... is their defense strong enough to confound Flacco much the same way Indy did last week?
 
Texans are the number 31st D in my league and I'm considering them over MINN because they play the Lions and Bengals in the next 2 weeks.

Anyone else thinking about playing the Texans this week?

 
6-0 heading into this week and I picked up the Texans D/ST to play over Carolina and NE(dropped both of those after last weeks debacles).

 
Oakland have no place being on this list. They run the ball a lot (4th-ranked in yards per game, though that figure is very misleading), don't pass much and therefore don't give up many turnovers (only two ints); they are probably only a slightly above-average match-up for fantasy defenses.

In the same vein, SF is far from the worst NFL offense but they're a good offense for your DST to face if you get points per sack.

I like Miami this week. Remember the job they did on New England defensively? Cassel=FlaccoAlso The Raiders got put on there more or less because the 3 point outing against the "weak" New Orleans defense was fresh in my mind. The Ravens was a glaring omission, so thanks for the correction.Speaking of Ravens and Raiders, The Raiders face the Ravens next week, would you pick up the Raiders defense for that one?

:) Too often guys are looking at/salivating over weak opponents, and not looking at the NATURE of their opponent. Unless your league rewards for low yardage/points allowed, then certain teams (like Oakland) are a bad match.A team not mentioned (through the first 20 or so posts) is San Francisco. Yep...they're scoring points and getting yards...but their also giving up tons of sacks and more turnovers then the average team. Again...it's about scoring systems. If your's rewards low yards/points...Oakland and Baltimore are near the top of the list.If it's about sacks and TO's...Detroit and SF look tasty.
