Fantasy Football: Defense/ST Draft Guide Strategy 2012

Each day of the week leading up to next Monday I will cover each position of Fantasy Football.   To read the entire BEAST DOME FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFT GUIDE 2012, follow the link.

 

The D/ST Position in Fantasy Football Can Be a Waiver Wire Team Every Week:

If you care more about having a solid team all-around then drafting one of the ELITE Defense/ST’s in the business.  Not a big deal at all.  Most of the times a solid defense will be dropped, but more likely than not you will find the best matchups on the Waiver Wire.  I will be using the Waiver Wire this season as I will be giving you the Muntradamus Waiver Wire defense of the Week special.

I.E.  What defense would you rather play in this one matchup.  Pittsburgh, or Minnesota?

Pittsburgh @ New England

or

Jacksonville @ Minnesota


The answer is Minnesota.

 

Advantages to Having an Elite D/ST:

  • You get a guaranteed 6 Points a week on tough games, and possibly 15+ Points if they have easy games.
  • You do not have to worry about picking up a defense throughout the season that will let you down.

 

Disadvantages to Having an Elite D/ST:

  • You do not get the chance to play matchups.
  • You do not get the chance to use Muntradamus Waiver Wire defense of the Week special.
  • You spent a high draft pick on SF D, when you could have picked a stud RB such as Jacquizz Rodgers.

 

Muntradamus D/ST Strategy:

  • Waiting toward the end of my draft to take the Minnesota Vikings who plays the Jags in Minnesota for Week 1.
  • Last round or two going to take the Raiders who play the Dolphins in Week 2.
  • After that I will be playing Musical D/ST with the Muntradamus D/ST Sleeper of the Week.

Defense/ST Plus Matchups For PLAYOFFS:

 

*Always vital to play the best defenses during the playoffs.  If you have a mediocre team that has a tough matchup when it counts the most.  Time to throw the bait away.  If you notice a lot of the superstar defenses such as Baltimore, Dallas, NYG, and the Jets do not even make this list because their matchups are so tough.
