Studs and Duds: Week 6

Diggs carries teams to victory


It was another bit of a topsy turvy week in the NFL. There were some big fantasy performances once again but several duds from top players. This made for some uneven fantasy performances. 

Passing games saw the most success with eight players hitting the 300-yard mark. Two quarterbacks had four-touchdown games. And 11 receivers hit the 100-yard mark and four had multiple touchdown games. 

Rushing games didn’t have near the success. The leading rusher was a quarterback for Week 6. There were just five backs that had 100-yard games with Chris Carson leading the way at 124 yards. It was a pretty down game from the running back position. 

So in all, it was another uneven week in fantasy land. Hopefully, you came out on the right side of things in Week 6. It is pretty crazy to think we are almost at the halfway point of the fantasy season. Team is running out. 

Patriots 35, Giants 14

Fantasy Stud: Golden Tate. Tate was the focal point of the Giants passing game and took advantage with a huge game. He had six receptions for 102 yards with a touchdown. He even did this with the Patriots knowing the Tate was going to get plenty of targets. This bodes well for Tate going forward. He is the first receiver all season to score a touchdown against the Patriots.

Fantasy Dud: Daniel Jones. Jones had his issues for the first time this season, playing a very good Patriots pass defense. Jones was 15-of-31 for 161 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions. This is the first time all year Jones didn’t have double-digit fantasy points. It is his second game with multiple interceptions, though.      

Game Notes: Jon Hilliman led the Giants in rushing, getting the start. He ran 11 times for 38 yards. And for his trouble, the Giants released him the day after the game. The health of Saquon Barkley must be looking pretty good.

Tom Brady was held out of the end zone throwing the ball, but scored two rushing touchdowns. He was 31-of-41 for 334 yards with an interception.

Panthers 37, Bucs 26

Fantasy Stud: Chris Godwin. Godwin didn’t find the end zone but had a huge game because of a reception and yardage totals. He had 10 catches for 151 yards. Godwin’s breakout season continued. Godwin had two double-digit reception games. He also has three straight 100-yard games and four total for the year. He has been a fantasy machine through six games.  

Fantasy Dud: Jameis Winston. Winston threw for 400 yards and a touchdown, so you probably think he didn’t have a bad fantasy day. Think again. Winston was picked off five times and also lost a fumble. His six turnovers were a killer to fantasy teams.  The good news is Winston keeps airing it out in this offense. He has 300-yard games three of four. 

Game Notes: Christian McCaffrey was held in check despite scoring two touchdowns He ran 22 times but had just 31 yards. He also caught four passes for 36 yards, giving him 58 total yards on 26 touches. His two touchdowns saved his fantasy day.

D.J. Moore had another very productive game, catching seven passes for 73 yards on 10 targets. He has at least six receptions four of six games. 

Seahawks 32, Browns 28

Fantasy Stud: Nick Chubb. Chubb had another very productive fantasy performance. He ran 20 times for 122 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 17 yards. Chubb has 100-yard games two of three and more than 700 total yards for the season. He is getting it done on a weekly basis, posting very consistent numbers. Chubb is a legit No. 1 back for fantasy teams in this offense.  

Fantasy Dud: Jarvis Landry. Landry had one of his quiet games, seeing teammate Odell Beckham get more looks throughout the game. Landry had three receptions for 36 yards. He had at least 60 yards three straight games before this showing. His five targets were a season low. Landry has been pretty ho hum much of the year for fantasy teams. 

Game Notes: Russell Wilson just keeps getting it done. He was 23-of-33 for 295 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He also ran in a score, rushing nine times for 31 yards and a  score. Wilson is yet to throw an interception this year and has four three-touchdown games.

Odell Beckham had his second 100-yard game of the season. He caught six passes for 101 yards. He tied a season high in targets with 11.

Texans 31, Chiefs 24

Fantasy Stud: Deshaun Watson. Watson was intercepted twice but scored three total touchdowns. He was 30-of-42 for 280 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions. He also ran 10 times for 42 yards and two scores. This was the fourth time this season Watson had more than 30 fantasy points. He has four three-touchdown games and two games with 300-plus yards. Watson is having another big fantasy season. 

Fantasy Dud: Will Fuller. Fuller did not follow his monster game as most expected he would. He had five receptions for 44 yards and dropped a couple passes, including a would-be touchdown. Fuller has good overall numbers because of his huge Week 5 game but been more bad than good most weeks. He has double-digit fantasy points just two of six games. 

Game Notes: Damien Williams had just two total touches. He ran once for six yards and caught a 14-yard touchdown pass. LeSean McCoy led the team in carries, rushing eight times for 44 yards. 

Tyreek Hill returned from his shoulder injury and looked just fine. He had a big game, catching five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown. He should be just fine going forward.

Redskins 17, Dolphins 16

Fantasy Stud: Terry McLaurin. McLaurin added yet another big game to his rookie season. He had four receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns. McLaurin has touchdowns four of six games. He has 17 or more fantasy points four games and two 100-yard games. He has been as impressive as any rookie receiver in the game, especially if you consider the team around him.

Fantasy Dud: Josh Rosen. Rosen started the game but didn’t finish it, getting benched for Ryan Fitzpatrick. You thought this might be a game you could use Rosen, getting a great matchup. Instead, Rosen went 15-of-25 for 85 yards with two interceptions. Fitzpatrick played well in relief, going 12-of-18 for 132 yards and a touchdown without a turnover. It will be interesting to see what direction the Dolphins go next week.

Game Notes: Adrian Peterson finally had a good showing. He had 23 carries for 118 yards. This was his first game all season with more than 40-rushing yards. 

DeVante Parker scored a touchdown for the second straight game. He had three receptions for 28 yards and a score. 

Vikings 38, Eagles 20

Fantasy Stud: Stefon Diggs. Diggs carried fantasy teams to victory all by himself in Week 6. He had one of the best fantasy games of the season. He finished with seven receptions for 167 yards and three touchdowns. This was a welcome sight for Diggs’ owners after seeing him have just 44 yards the previous week. Diggs has 100-yard games two of three. The Vikings passing game is showing life, which is great news for Diggs. 

Fantasy Dud: Zach Ertz. Ertz had four receptions for 54 yards and lost a fumble. It was another disappointing performance from Ertz. This was his first game with fewer than double-digit fantasy points. His season high in receiving yards is just 72 yard, and he is yet to have double-digit receptions in a game. His start to the season has been a big disappointment to fantasy teams. 

Game Notes: Kirk Cousins was 22-of-29 for 333 yards and four touchdowns with an interception. Cousins has two straight 300-yard games and six touchdowns this last two games. 

Alshon Jeffery got a ton of work in the passing game, catching 10 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown. Jeffery has touchdowns two of three games and 19 catches those three games.

Saints 13, Jaguars 6

Fantasy Stud: Leonard Fournette. Fournette didn’t have a huge game but was good compared to the rest of the offensive players in this one. He ran 20 times for 72 yards and caught six passes for 46 yards. So he finished with 118 total yards and six receptions, making for a pretty good fantasy day. Fournette has three straight games with 100-plus total yards.

Fantasy Dud: Gardner Minshew. Pick a Jaguar for this one. We’ll go with Minshew because many had high hopes for him in what seemed a favorable matchup. He laid an egg for the first time all season, though. He was just 14-of-29 for 163 yards with an interception. This was the first time all season Minshew failed to score a touchdown and broke a streak of three straight games with multiple scores. 

Game Notes: Michael Thomas had eight receptions for 89 yards. Thomas has at least eight receptions five of six games. He has three double-digit reception games this season. 

D.J. Chark had his first down game of the season, catching three passes for 43 yards. This was just the second game all year he didn’t find the end zone. And his yardage total was a season low.

Ravens 23, Bengals 17

Fantasy Stud: Lamar Jackson. Jackson didn't throw a touchdown pass but that matter for his fantasy numbers. He still had a huge game because of a great rushing game. Jackson ran 19 times for 152 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t need to throw a pass and still would have finished with great fantasy numbers. Jackson was 21-of-33 for 236 yards without a touchdown or interception throwing the ball. Jackson has two 100-yard rushing games this season. He has 30-plus fantasy points three of six games.

Fantasy Dud: Tyler Boyd. Boyd had a really down game, especially if you consider his numbers the rest of the year. He caught just three passes for 10 yards. Boyd has fewer than 35 yards two of three games. He has disappointed a little the last few weeks, but remains a solid fantasy play in this offense as the top target right now.

Game Notes: Joe Mixon did next to nothing, rushing eight times for 10 yards. He is finding little room to run behind the Bengals offensive line. Mixon has fewer than 20-rushing yards three times this season.

Mark Andrews led the way in the Ravens passing game, finishing with six receptions for 99 yards. Andrews has 99 or more yards three of six games. 

49ers 20, Rams 7

Fantasy Stud: George Kittle. Kittle finally had a 100-yard game, his first of the season. He had eight receptions for 103 yards. This was the first time all season he had more than 70 yards in a game. Kittle is trending up, though, having six or more receptions three straight games. He is starting to peak at the right time for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Dud: Jared Goff. Goff had a horrible game, going 13-of-24 for only 78 yards. He also failed to score a touchdown and lost a fumble. It was a disaster of a game for Goff. He had just fewer than four fantasy points. You just didn’t see that game coming from Goff, He has two straight 300-yard gams and at least a touchdown every game this season. Goff and the entire Rams offense is trending the wrong way right now.

Game Notes: Malcolm Brown led the Rams in rushing with Todd Gurley out, rushing 11 times for 40 yards. Rookie Darrell Henderson looked pretty good, though, rushing six times for 39 yards. He averaged an impressive 6.5 yards per carry, which could earn him more work going forward. 

Tevin Coleman found the end zone for the second straight game. He ran 18 times for 45 yards and a score. He led the 49ers in rushing attempts once again and has 34 attempts his last two games.

Cardinals 34, Falcons 33

Fantasy Stud: Matt Ryan. His team lost once again, but Ryan continues to post big fantasy numbers. He was 30-of-36 for 356 yards and four touchdowns without a turnover. Ryan has four three-touchdown games and at least 300-passing yards every game. His fantasy numbers have been off the charts and consistent all year. 

Fantasy Dud: Mohamed Sanu. Sanu had been trending the right way in recent weeks but disappointed in this high-scoring affair. He had just three receptions for 29 yards. Sanu had at least 13 fantasy points three straight games before this one. He also had at least four receptions every game this season before this game. It was an unexpected showing in a great matchup. 

Game Notes: Kyler Murray had maybe his best game as a pro, going 27-of-37 for 340 yards and three touchdowns without a turnover. He also ran 11 times for 32 yards. This was the first time in his career Murray had more than 30 fantasy points. 

David Johnson was able to play with his back injury and produced well in the game. He ran 12 times for 34 yards and a touchdown. He did most of damage in the passing game, catching six passes for 68 yards and a touchdowns. Johnson topped 100 total yards for the third straight game.

Broncos 16, Titans 0

Fantasy Stud: Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay was one of the few offensive players in this game that produced well. He ran 15 times for 70 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for five yards. Lindsay has scores two straight and three of four games. He has double-digit fantasy points all but a game this year. 

Fantasy Dud: Derrick Henry. Henry had a really disappointing game despite a big workload. He ran 15 times for 28 yards and caught just a pass for five yards. This was the first game all year Henry didn't have double-digit fantasy points. His 4.3 fantasy points were a season low. Henry has been shutout of the end zone two of the past three games after scoring three straight to the start the season. 

Game Notes: Courtland Sutton led the Broncos in receiving once again, catching four passes for 76 yards. He has at least 75 yards three of four games. He is having a breakout year as the top receiver in this offense. 

Marcus Mariota found his way to the bench in this one, getting benched for Ryan Tannehill. Mariota was 7-of-18 for 63 yards with two interceptions. Tannehill played well in relief, going 13-of-16 for 144 yards with an interception. It will be interesting to see what direction the Titans go in Week 7. 

Jets 24, Cowboys 22

Fantasy Stud: Robby Anderson. The return of Sam Darnold was a huge plus for Anderson. He had his best game of the year, catching five passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Anderson has 80-plus yard two of five games. He has big-time potential if getting the chances in this offense. He is a big-play threat every time he has the ball in his hands. 

Fantasy Dud: Dak Prescott. Prescott was surprisingly quiet in a great matchup. He was 28-of-40 for 277 yards without a touchdown or an interception. The only time Prescott found the end zone was running the ball, having three carries for 11 yards and a touchdown.  Prescott has failed to throw a touchdown pass two of his past three games. He has really gone downhill since having multiple scores three straight to start his season. 

Game Notes: Ezekiel Elliott had a 100-yard rushing performance. He ran 28 times for 105 yards and a touchdown. He also had five receptions for 47 yards, giving him 152 total yards and a score. Elliott has three 100-yard games this season.

Amari Cooper injured his quad very early in the game and could not return. He had a catch for three yards before leaving. This is an injury to monitor, so keep an eye on the player notes for the latest. 

Steelers 24, Chargers 17

Fantasy Stud: Hunter Henry. Henry returned from his knee injury and looked great, leading the Chargers in receiving. He showed his huge ceiling in the game, catching eight passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns. This was just his second game of the season but Henry has 60 or more yards in each game. He can be an elite fantasy tight end in this offense. 

Fantasy Dud: Austin Ekeler. Ekeler finally had a dud of a game, splitting work with Melvin Gordon. He didn’t catch many passes, leading to his poor fantasy numbers. Ekeler ran five times for just 14 yards and caught three passes for 14 yards. His reception total was his lowest of the season. This game was a bit of a concern for Ekeler owners. He didn’t have double-digit touches for the first time all year with Melvin Gordon drawing the start for San Diego.

Game Notes: Devlin Hodges led his team to victory in his first NFL start but did most of his work on dump offs to his running back, James Conner. Hodges was 15-of-20 for 132 yards and a  touchdown with an interception. Conner had seven receptions for 78 yards. Hodges took few chances down the field.

Philip Rivers did most of his damage late in the game with his team trailing but finished with good fantasy numbers because of this. He was 26-of-44 for 320 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Rivers has 300-yards games four of six. He also has multiple scores three of four games.

Player Notes
Matthew Stafford Nov 21 1:00am ET

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (back) missed another practice on Wednesday, but he wants to play again this season when he's cleared by doctors. However, Detroit is currently 3-6-1 and has very little chance of making the playoffs, so it's not like the Lions will rush their starting quarterback back. Stafford is expected to miss his third straight game after his streak of 136 straight starts was broken two weeks ago. He doesn't when it'll be, he just wants to make it back this season. Stafford was second in the NFL at the time of his injury with 19 touchdowns, and he was leading the NFL in 20-plus yard completions (41). He remains week-to-week, and fantasy owners must come to grips with the fact that he might not help them again in 2019. Jeff Driskel will remain the starter while Stafford is out.

From RotoBaller

Davante Adams Nov 21 12:50am ET

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (toe) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Adams will be fine to play on Sunday night against the 49ers. The 26-year-old has seen a healthy 21 targets in his two games since returning from turf toe, and he went for 118 yards before the Week 11 bye against Carolina. Adams is a must-start as quarterback Aaron Rodgers' top target, but the Niners have been very good at limiting opposing wideouts in 2019. Consider him more of a low-end WR1, and he'll be looking for his first touchdown of the season this weekend.

From RotoBaller

Phillip Lindsay Nov 21 12:50am ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (foot, wrist) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Barring a setback in practice later this week, Lindsay will be good to go for Week 12 against the Bills. The second-year back has mostly been a disappointment in 2019 while sharing backfield work with Royce Freeman in an offense that doesn't score many points, but Denver proved last week that they plan on giving more work to Lindsay to close out the season. The 25-year-old had his most carries (16) since Sept. 22 against the Packers. He's the better fantasy back in Denver's backfield and will have low-end RB2 appeal this weekend.

From RotoBaller

Jack Doyle Nov 21 12:40am ET

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle had been one of the most consistent players on the team before he disappeared in Week 11 with no targets or catches. In Week 12, you can't count on him to produce a lot, and his ceiling was never all that high anyway. He only has three touchdowns on the year, and he's only gone over 50 yards in a game one time this season. Good fantasy football tight ends are hard to find, especially when two or three of them are on byes this week, but you can still find a better option than Doyle.

From RotoBaller

Nyheim Hines Nov 21 12:30am ET

Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines saw his stock shoot up earlier this week when starting running back Marlon Mack (hand) was announced as out for Thursday's game with the Houston Texans. In PPR formats, Hines can easily get you 10 to 12 points with his ability to catch passes out of the backfield. The Texans have given up more receptions to running backs than any other team in the NFL this season. Hines still doesn't present much value in standard leagues, but he gives you a decent flex option if you're short-handed this week in PPR leagues.

From RotoBaller

Jordan Wilkins Nov 21 12:30am ET

Indianapolis Colts running back Jordan Wilkins has essentially been a non-factor all season, but with starter Marlon Mack (hand) out for Week 12, he presents some deeper league sleeper potential. Running back Jonathan Williams was the hot hand in Week 11, but Wilkins is more experienced with the team. Head coach Frank Reich could opt to split carries and ride whatever running back is rolling. Wilkins could be that, as he boasts a career yard-per-carry average of 5.8. Unless you're desperate, though, don't count on him for anything consistent.

From RotoBaller

Jonathan Williams Nov 21 12:30am ET

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Williams was thrust into a major role after starter Marlon Mack (hand) left the game in Week 11. In Week 12, he'll receive a fair bit of work against the Houston Texans, but it's tough to tell how much. The Colts were up comfortably for much of their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he was the hot hand on the afternoon. Against the Texans, the Colts could go for more of a committee approach, which could lower Williams' ceiling. If he gets rolling like he did last week, he's a great play. Otherwise, he could come out with a dud. He shouldn't be relied upon unless absolutely necessary, especially since he could play second fiddle to Jordan Wilkins on early downs.

From RotoBaller

T Y Hilton Nov 21 12:30am ET

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (calf) is questionable heading into the team's Week 12 matchup with the Houston Texans, but if he plays, you almost have to start him. He's been an elite player when he's been on the field this season, and he's consistently torn up the Texans in the past. He's about two weeks removed from his injury, and it's still questionable if he'll be able to suit up. With Hilton's talent and the Texans' inability to stop opposing pass-catchers, he's startable this week if he's active.

From RotoBaller

Zach Pascal Nov 21 12:30am ET

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Zach Pascal has steadily been fading over the last month of the season. In Week 12, he has some upside against the Houston Texans, who he went for six catches, 106 yards and two touchdowns against earlier this season, but he's been too inconsistent to rely upon every week. There are a number of good offenses with good wide receivers that are on byes this week that could force you into playing Pascal, and he has the ability to score a fair bit of points. However, his inconsistency should have you looking elsewhere. With T.Y. Hilton (calf) potentially returning as the team's No. 1 receiver, it'll give you even more reason to fade Pascal in this run-first offense.

From RotoBaller

Eric Ebron Nov 21 12:30am ET

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron remains firmly in the TE2 category thanks to his athleticism and abilities in the red zone. In Week 12 against the Houston Texans, he is again a TE2 with upside thanks to a soft defense. You likely drafted Ebron to be your top tight end, and he hasn't been that this season with just three touchdowns through 10 games. This could be the week he gets back into the end zone, but there are still a few players with better matchups and outlooks than him.

From RotoBaller

Jacoby Brissett Nov 21 12:20am ET

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett has a matchup with the Houston Texans in Week 12, and he has the potential to have a big week. The Texans have the offense to put up a lot of points, but their defense has been suspect due to injuries and player moves. The Colts will be without running back Marlon Mack (hand), which will put more work on Brissett's shoulders. The Colts Defense has given up points at times this year, and they gave up 23 in the first matchup of these teams. Brissett and the team put up 30 in that matchup, and if wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (calf) is able to play, his ceiling shoots way up.

From RotoBaller

Jonathan Williams Nov 20 11:33pm ET

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Williams might be counted upon to start the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium on Thursday, Nov. 21 with RB Marlon Mack (hand) out. If Williams gets the start, it will be in the building where he had his last starting assignment in the 2014 Texas Bowl for the University of Arkansas.

Fantasy Spin: Williams went for over 100 yards last week once Mack went down, and Jordan Wilkins is coming off an ankle injury, so it's likely a good bet Williams gets first crack at the lion's share of the work. By the way, he had 105 yards in that Texas Bowl win over the Texas Longhorns, so fantasy owners hope lightning strikes twice at NRG in Week 12.

From TheHuddle

Jacoby Brissett Nov 20 11:33pm ET

Indianapolis Colts QB Jacoby Brissett enters the Week 12 game Thursday, Nov. 21 against the Houston Texans with a 4-0 career record with seven touchdowns, no interceptions and a 107.2 passer rating, going 3-0 with the Colts and 1-0 as a member of the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Spin: Brissett will have the good fortune of not having to face J.J. Watt, since he is out for the remainder of the season, too. He's not a bad low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, and it sounds like he'll have T.Y. Hilton back, too.

From TheHuddle

Devin Funchess Nov 20 11:23pm ET

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (collarbone) has not yet been activated from the Reserve/Injured list, so it is extremely unlikely he plays in Week 12 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Spin: Funchess hasn't shed his non-contact jersey, and the team is unlikely to rush him and risk aggravating his injury. Fantasy owners will want to see him officially return and knock off the rust, making it through a full game without any setbacks. Unfortunately for most owners, time is running out for that to happen in the fantasy regular season.

From TheHuddle

Nyheim Hines Nov 20 11:23pm ET

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines is still expected to see his normal role in the passing game in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, and not an increase in work despite the loss of RB Marlon Mack (hand).

Fantasy Spin: Hines will see his regular work on passing downs, but it appears Jonathan Williams and/or Jordan Wilkins will be counted upon as the workhorse back for carries.

From TheHuddle

Raheem Mostert Nov 20 8:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Spin: Mostert has been limited during practice over the last few weeks but has not missed a game. He has been held to 35 yards or less in each of the last three games and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Robbie Gould Nov 20 8:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers DE Dee Ford (hamstring, quadriceps), PK Robbie Gould (quadriceps) and OT Joe Staley (finger) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20. DT D.J. Jones (groin) was limited during practice, while LB Azeez Al-Shaair (concussion) fully participated in practice.

From TheHuddle

Emmanuel Sanders Nov 20 8:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders did not practice last week but was able to play in Week 11, so he may not do much during practice this week. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is active for the game.

From TheHuddle

George Kittle Nov 20 8:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Spin: Kittle has missed the last few games because of the injuries and probably will miss another game if he does not practice. Fantasy players should check on his status later in the week but will need other options available.

From TheHuddle

Oakland Raiders Nov 20 8:30pm ET

The Oakland Raiders Defense is coming off back-to-back stellar weeks and is in a superb spot to keep the trend going in Week 12. Led by the reigning Defensive Player of the Week Maxx Crosby, they've piled up 10 sacks and five turnovers in their last two games, helping them earn double-digit fantasy point totals in each contest. Their Jets opponent this weekend is allowing the second-most fantasy points to the D/ST position, and the third-most sacks in the league (41). Managers looking for a streaming option this week should ride the Raiders defense with confidence.
