I stll say that scoring defense is the only number that matters-- 18.1 points per game allowed, 4th in the league
Here, I corrected the OP so it's more to your liking.

Re: Surprising Grades on Defense

Oak, that's two cases, the majority of times Greer has started opposite the No.1...

New England's No. 1 is Gronkowski, who didn't play; in fact, nobody has been able to name NE's No. 1 since Moss left (Brandon Lloyd couldn't get any respect or coin)...

Now, the majority of games, the LCB covers the WR1, and Greer has been on that guy...

Granted, Lewis and White are taking over playing time on the top two receivers which I've liked transitioning younger...

And Dez Bryant is usually opposite Miles Austin, who's had a Hamstring Injury from Hell this season; so it worked out great into our scheme...

I could care less about respect or injuries. This league is about match ups. Our best against their best that are on the field that day.

People that put form over function are weak and lack self esteem to the point that they seek empty approval.

To me #1 is the clear cut most receptions target. That's Eddleman, he has been that target since the start of the season. Eddleman has 49 receptions making him tied for 13th most receptions in the league.... And that's including Tight Ends. I wasn't guessing on NE, I had Eddleman on my fantasy team because he generated great PPR. Next is Dobson with 31 receptions. 18 rec difference is a huge number in this comparison.

Same as the Saints we a clear #1 but no clear #2 as out 2nd and 3rd highest rec are RBs.

Graham 54
Thomas 46
Sproles 44
Colston 34
