Here are some preliminary pass d rankings through week 11. It is still pretty early, but it’s worth taking a look. Each number is the Pass D Ranking from our Strategery Post for this week. I will try to keep this updated as we gain more statistics. 3 weeks worth of stats just isn’t enough to base huge changes to your team on. But these might give you some ideas to work with. As usual, the higher the numbers the easier the matchup.

    I really would like to utilize your table. Can you please explain it? AM I looking at the Def for a team at left and how easy the opp is for that Def on any given week? or is the team at left the offense and the number for each week is how easy the opp is to pass against?More explaination would be greatly appreciated.

    @Doc: who do you like this week? big ben @ hou or grossman @stl? thanks.

  3. Wilsonian says:

    0.5 PPR league where I’m slightly worried about my RBs. Would you deal any of these WRs for an RB and who would you target?

    QB: Rivers
    WR: Roddy
    WR: VJax
    WR: Smith CAR
    RB: CJ
    RB: Forte
    TE: Finley
    W/R: L.Moore
    BN: Holmes
    BN: Helu
    BN: Starks
    BN: Ingram
    BN: Keller
    BN: Schaub

    in my non-ppr league, I can trade ben tate straight up for Sidney Rice. I should do that, right? Isn’t Rice a more promising flex going forward than tate?

  5. Child Please says:

    .5 PPR non-keeper league, $100 waiver wire budget (I have $98 left)

    QB- Eli and Flacco
    RBx2- Gore, Best
    WRx3- Vincent Jackson, Welker, Lloyd
    Flex- Felix Jones
    TE- Witten
    Bench RBs- Hunter, Spiller, Thomas
    Bench WRs- Titus Young, Collie

    I am dropping Thomas for Ridley …How much would you bid for Ridley?

    I am also dropping Collie for either Donald Jones or Michael Jenkins…How much would you bid for each of them?

    I think “team” is the offense and the rankings are their opponents defensive pass rank. So according to this chart San Diego is playing the worst pass defense and Cleveland is playing the best.

  7. Van Haggard says:

    Doc, someone just offered me Gore and AJ Green for my Jahvid Best. What should I do? Its a non-ppr league.

  8. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Matteo: The numbers correspond to the opponent and their pass D ranking.

    @herschel: That is a tough one. Going with Gross man because of the o-line but I don’t like it.

    @Wilsonian: I like your team. Hold tight.

    @Joel: I would hold off. Rice’s upside is capped by that offense and we haven’t seen Foster play a full game yet.

    @Child Please: 10-15 on Ridley, 3-5 on Jones

    @DWU BWEEES!: yep

    @Van Haggard: I’d take it. I’m not high on Gore, but Best really needs PPR to be a top guy.

  9. bluety says:

    Do I trade cj now or continue to wait. Offers have been beat and m. Williams, grant and b. Marshall .

  10. DWU BWEEES! says:

    Would you drop Davone Bess for Jacoby Ford,Amendola, or Antonio Brown? I don’t have any high ceiling WR’s behind my #1. Just a handful of WR 3/4 type players. PPR league.

  11. DrPepper says:

    Still trying to sell F Jackson high. In Got an offer of Desean Jackson and Julio Jones. Without Fred, I still have McFadden, Steven Jackson, Daniel Thomas, and Joseph Addai at RB. My WR are Andre Johnson, B Marshall, and R Meacham — we start 3, and I have none in reserve right now. I’m leaning towards it. What do you think?

  12. DWU BWEEES! says:

    Nevermind, only Jacoby Ford is left.

  13. Get off My Ditka! says:

    @Doc: would you trade shonne greene and percy harvin for ryan matthews and pierre thomas? id be getting matthews / thomas

  14. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Get off My Ditka!: Don’t like Thomas, but love Mathews, so yeah.

    @DrPepper: With the makeup of your team I’d do it.

    @DWU BWEEES!: I’d hold in PPR with just Ford

    @bluety: I think you’ve got to hold

  15. robert says:

    @Doc- the last place team in my league has Chris Johnson & Hillis at RB and Andre Johnson, R. White, Devery Henderson at WR. He is 0-3. If I can trade my R. Matthews & Steve Smith(Car.) for his CJ and Roddy White is it worth the risk for CJ? Or should I stand pat? I would still have McFadden/F. Jackson at RB and VJack/Wallace at WR. Thanks.

  16. Lubey says:

    @Mr. G


    Manningham @Ari or Thomas vs. NO……Im leaning Thomas

    Thanks brotha

  17. zandercage says:

    Hey Doc – Jason Campbell or Tony Romo this week?

    Also, pick 3 WRs in a PPR league I am in – Nicks, Holmes, Lloyd, D. Nelson or Denarius Moore?
