My league assigns points for defenses when they hold teams to under 200 yards, under 300 yards, etc. as well as holding teams to a shut out, less than 7 points etc. The scoring for these categories easily outweighs the value of takeaways.
After putting in this scoring and running Kubiak, the 49ers defense ended up ranked 9th, behind the likes of the Packers, Seahawks, and Giants (Steelers were #1, which I could easily understand).
My question is, given that the 49ers were the second best scoring defense last year and return most of their starters, why would they be ranked so low? Is it due to schedule? Or an calculated regression?
