View Full Version : Defense wins games

I have the option to start either Patrick Surtain (vs. Jets), Zach Thomas (NYJ) or Warren Sapp (Car). I can start two of these three, who should they be?

depends on your scoring, I usually stay away from D-linemen because they don't get enough tackles. DB's have a better chance of grabbing INT'S and racking up PD's, while LB's also force turnovers, and Zach Thomas will probably have about 8 tackles. so, say Sapp has a good game, 3 tackles, 2 sacks...under the scoring system I use, that's 9 points. Thomas's 8 tackles alone put him in a position to top that, and Surtain should probably also get about 6 tackles. There's more of a guarantee with LB's and DB's, especially when they're playing against Testaverde this week.
