This Week’s Topic:
Waivers are about to close in some leagues for the playoff’s; who should we be grabbing for the final push?

My Response:
With the fantasy playoffs in sight, I begin to align my fantasy defenses to ensure I have favorable match-ups for the most important games of the year. I try to get a core group of skill positons (QB, RB, WR), carry one Tight End, and use any extra roster spots on quality defenses.

Here’s a look at some of the defenses to grab for the fantasy playoffs:

Arizona: @SF, @DET, STL
Houston: SEA, @STL, @MIA
Cincinnati: Week 16 vs. KC
Dallas: Week 16 @WAS
Denver: Week 15 vs. OAK
New York Jets: Week 14 @TB
San Francisco: Week 16 vs. DET

    I’ve never used this strategy before, loading up on defenses early. What do you think of Seattle’s Def against St. Louis this week?

    I’m really nervous about New Orleans strategy with Brees down the stretch, if they decide to rest him I’m not sure I can make up his stats. We’ll see.

    Hopefully for your sake the Vikes keep winning so the Saints don’t have that option. They will have a bye though, so they shouldn’t rest him in Week 16, which should be your fantasy super bowl. Seattle’s D is an option, but there are a lot of good ones this week so I’d guess I’d like to see what other ones are at your disposal.
