Need help with Defense

Well, I dropped Chi v. Dal and picked up New England v. NYJ, based on the consensus of the pundits, but I'm uncomfortable with that choice because FO shows NE as the # 20 Def and NYJ as the #22 Off. My other choices were Atl v. Az, Car v. TB, and San Diego v. Jacksonville, none of which thrill me nor FO.

If you go strictly with the DAVE rankings, the best pick is actually Seattle (#4 Def) v. Denver (#17 Off) or Cle (#8 Def) v. KV (#18 Off). Does anyone here think this either of these are a good idea? No pundit would agree.

KC Defense #18 v. Cle offense #31, especially without Delhomme at QB looks pretty good too.

I think you keep NE for this week and next (matchup at home versus BUF). I've looked at your other available defenses for my own leagues. The Patriots going up against a befuddled Sanchez on a short week is both safer and holds greater upside than the other options. The probability of the Jets’ offense suddenly clicking seems very low.
