Which DE do you like this year...and in future years?

Postby The Red Rooster » Tue Oct 17, 2017 11:15 am

It seems I could land Demarcus Lawrence or Everson Griffen for Vic Beasley plus a little something. Beasley is, and has always been, listed as DE on ESPN.

This is for team in sig which is a legit contender. We award 2 points for all tackles and each sack is worth 6 points. Beasley was great last year and started the year just fine before the hammy...but those other two have started on a rampage. My worry is they will not continue to get sacks in every single game like they have and I am buying way to high right now.

So, for this year, who helps me more out of the 3? Who do you all like better long term of the 3 as well? I want to pair someone with Cam Jordan each week and roll.

Everson Griffen has always been one of the better pass rushers in the league. He's just climbed to another level of production so far this year. That said, if Beasley is a DE and this is dynasty, I'd probably stick with him. If it's redraft, grab Griffen

Beasley is not quite as good as Griffen yet, but he's a better pass rusher than Lawrence

I would take either DE Lawrence or Griffen over Beasley. I would likely take Griffen over everyone mentioned but Jordan and Lawrence are playing out of their minds right now...anyway I don't think you can go wrong with either over Beasley

I would keep Beasley. Griffen will continue be a really good NFL player but with Hunter in the rotation I think the stats will be dropping. D-Law is having an incredible season but hoping he keeps it up is fools gold. Beasley should have plenty of sack opportunities with the way the team in constructed over the next couple of years.

Do DLs get rewarded with big pts? Similar to offensive guys?
