Hope this helps. Unless you're running a 2 DEF 2 K league lol.
Having the two kickers were big for me last year. I had Kris Brown and Akers. Akers was doing better than Brown so I had Brown on my bench. When Akers had a bye, there wasn't anyone good (last year was pretty crappy for alot of kickers). Because I had Brown I could get rid of him and pick up a kicker for one week without risking putting Akers on the wire and losing him. After Akers came back, I realized I was only going to live and die with him because what was left was not any better. So then I let the other kicker go and picked up another skill position player without losing a skill position player.
I drafted two defenses because I had Pittsburgh defense last year and when I let them go, somebody picked them up and I suffered in the playoffs because of it since no other team avaiable was good. I also think Texans defense will be pretty darn tough this year and around week 2 or 3 I'll be able to have some trade bait between the two defenses. Of course it also allows me to do the same as with the kickers - not lose a skill position to get a skill position.
