Points Allowed, Week 3
Welcome to the debut for the Points Allowed weekly post. This post helps determine which match-ups are the best to exploit by looking at how teams have defended against each offensive position to help you make the right Start/Sit.
Week 3 is even a bit early because some teams have had easy or tough schedules that don’t accurately reflect their rank in this system.
Let’s look at the Saints for example. The Saints Defense is #5 against QBs so far. Who have they faced? Matt Ryan. Ok, he’s legit. They’ve also faced Josh Freeman, who is now benched. Finally, they’ve faced Carson Palmer, who has an awful offensive line. Are they a good pass defense? Sure they are. Are they the fifth best, absolutely not. Keep these facts in mind when reading the article.
