Yea @Mr. Krinkle that’s my brother. We talked and are in agreement team defense is superior. He’s also recovering from covid and was in the hospital when he drafted. They gave him a treatment when we’re halfway through.

It might be easier to set, but doesn't make it superior imo. Team Defense basically makes it so that defense is a non-factor. Most teams don't really even give you many points, you don't even really have to draft a defense you can probably just pick defenses up from the waiver wire and just play matchups. Boring, makes defense obsolete ime. With idp defenders actually matter

i agree with that.....i don't like team defenses either

i think it's more a matter of getting used to it....it takes more skill than just throwing a team defense out there so it challenges you more....plus you start to learn more about that side of the ball when you know who is who

basically, you want defensive players that out there for all 3 downs....so the LB who wears the mic and calls the plays, he'll play close to 100% of the snaps...and he's usually the best player on defense to begin with....so that's the guy you want

strong safety is the other position you want because he gets a lot of tackles because he's not playing the outfield quite like the free safety....those hybrid safeties are the best because they'll play like a linebacker....more tackles - more points - so tackles are the stat that can be the most consistent from defense

well i hope he feels better soon....does he need to go on the covid list or can he still play?
