Fantasy Football 2013: Why You Should Draft Seattle Seahawks Team Defense

It’s been a minute but i’m back and i’m ready to talk defense.  In past years (and even this year) you definitely have a guy or guys in your league that either takes a defense in the second to last or last round because they figure they can just get through the year picking up a new defense every week.  I’m not down with that.  Last year in standard scoring leagues the...
