    That is what I am going to do this year, if players are starting to get slim I might grab a defense 'early' but its just too flaky of a position to rely on.

    Theres more than 12 worthy kickers in the NFL, so it's stupid to waste a good draft pick on a kicker.

    The difference from the best kicker to the 12th best kicker is only like 15 points

    Well, believe it or not if I had not dropped Blair Walsh last year during his bye, I would have won the championship rather than come in 3rd (in my primary league).

    Only reason I dropped him was because he was on a bye, and I hate having to hold onto two kickers. I'll probably just start going with no kicker for one week rather than dropping one.

    I've really been burned in the past by starting bad defenses.

    Last two years in my dynasty league I scored NEGATIVE D points for the first 2 and 3 weeks respectively.

    Hard to win when an opponent is scoring 20 to my -2 in D category. Of course our settings aren't standard.

    Defense was my undoing last year as well. I had at least 5-6 weeks where my defense either scored at or below 0.

    I drafted Cincinnati in the second to last round. They got me 0 points in the first 3/4 weeks, so I dropped them. I picked up Dallas and they did more of the same, so I dropped them. I picked up Minnesota and they pulled the same sh*t, so I dropped them. Then I did a massive trade (because my bench was stacked) and acquired Chicago's defense along with others.

    As soon as I trade for Chicago, they get me 0 points against SF on that MNF game and all I needed was 2 points from them to win my matchup that week. From that point on, Chicago was completely useless.

    Classic RSB luck.

    My defense strategy is kinda weird this season. I hate having bad defenses and losing close games.

    Yea, but even if you draft an elite defense early, there's a good chance they'll screw you over and leave you with goose eggs.

    I might just look at what team has the most favorable schedule and roll with them.

    If you can get a D that gets you 10 points a week, youre good there.

    I'd say theres about 5 of those types of defenses.

    Personally I'd prefer to focus on getting players that can get the same points and some.
