Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in this crazy game of fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time but at Bruno Boys we help you work through those tougher decisions to make an informed and confident starting lineup.
Our Team Defense or Defense and Special Teams (DST) Starts and Sits look specifically at which defenses you can start or stream, and the ones you can bench or leave in free agency.
Team defenses often encompass a number of things like the opposing offense, game scripts, injuries, and whether a mismatch is big enough to shift the tide one way or another. We will rarely talk about points allowed because most NFL teams can score over 20 points in a game. Points allowed are a phantom stat that disappears the minute the opposing team scores.
Instead we look at which defenses can force turnovers and sacks, which turn into points off turnovers. We try to zero in on the matchups that will benefit those that score yards allowed, force 3 and outs, and reward 4th down stops. In other words, we want tangible points that won’t go away on the last whistle.
Here are the Week 6 Team Defenses to Sit.
Tennessee Titans Team Defense vs. Buffalo Bills
After four weeks of mediocrity, the Titans finally came up with a big defensive effort against the Jaguars. Unfortunately, they’ll go back to the bottom of the pack against the red hot Bills. For the last four weeks, opposing defenses has been in the red, as in negative points, because the Bills take care of the ball, keeping Josh Allen clean and they’re lighting up the scoreboard for at least 30 points.
