Strategy for D/ST
Look for matchups vs. bad opposing QBs.
The two biggest constants you can measure for a D/ST are points allowed and sacks, with interceptions/fumble recoveries a byproduct of the pressure applied on the quarterback who is most likely to make mistakes. The opposing QB rating is the strongest indicator of this.
20 pts (4 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 interceptions, 1 TD, 13 pts or less allowed)
15-19 pts (4 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, 2 interceptions, 1 TD, 20 pts or less allowed)
10-14 pts (3 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, 1 interception, 0 TD, 20 pts or less allowed)
