SD D/ST Proves Studying League Settings Add an Edge

I’ve made some crap draft decisions this year in fantasy football. It’s why I’ve mentioned football so little in this space. In one league, I am middle of the pack in points, but sitting with a 0-3 record.

Yesterday was no different. I actually listened to Footballguys.com and played Darrius Heyward-Bey over Michael Crabtree. Yes, I thought like Al Davis.

But the afternoon game proved to keep me in the matchup. I had only a kicker and a defense left to go against a strong opposing squad. And then something wonderful happened. Interception after interception, San Diego Chargers Defense kepte in it. I got 40 from them.

When everyone else at the draft was busy fighting over Brandon Lafell and Dexter McCluster, I scooped up a second, then a third team defense. The scoring settings were just too abnormally skewed in favor of Team D. SD was the third team I drafted, and it might have been the only smart decision I made that evening.

Tonight I’ve got Brandon Marshall against Wes Welker and a point. Consider me a Dolphins fan.
