I had him go thru 3 seasons of fantasy football weekly totals and maybe 70% of the time it actually hurt him to use a defense. If that's standard scoring and you can't get one of the top defenses why bother--and why bother soaking up a bench spot with a 2nd defense? Can you guys enlighten me?
You do have the option not to play a defense. However you usually get at least 3-5 points even on bad days if the team can get a few sacks and stuff. Even in the heavily penalized leagues negative scores happen only occassionaly (I'd say around 10-15 a season, only a few of those are actually started that week). Something is usually better than nothing. Having 1 good DEF, and one throwaway add/drop matchup defense is probably the best way to go honestly. My at work league games come down to the wire and every single point helps
