Starting a player who is going against your defense
Posted 20 October 2013 - 02:40 AM
I have Le'Veon Bell vs. Bal and Zac Stacy vs. Car, but I have Car defense as well.
If I project both rb's to be the equal this week, do I automatically go with Bell because I don't want my rb and defense hurting each other? At what point do you decide to go with the rb who is playing your defense?

And unless it's a guy who's a game changer, who can score multiple TD's and swing the score all on his own, it doesn't matter if he gets his, your defense can still simultaneously put up big points.
If you're worried your player is going to crush your defense, chances are you might be onto something and it's a bad matchup for your defense meaning you should be sitting them that week.
Chances are if you're worried about your defense shutting down your player, you might be onto something and that player is a bad start that week based on matchup as well, or you're way over-thinking things.

You don't bench a guy because you're worried he'll go off on your defense, you bench the defense instead.
I do the same thing. I usually will bench a defense before a player. I might reconsider if I had an elite defense, but I just stream defenses so usually it's marginal.
I only sit the player if I'd normally sit the player if I didn't own the defense.
