For me this simple:
Woddy is the starter. DJ is in the backup Rotation for WLB/MLB, when he comes back.
You can not have enough depth. You see how fast a player can go down (Mays).
Also there a PO teams (Texans/Ravens) who need a LB. You can not give him DJ for free.
Without the Pats, I think we can beat any AFC Team. So do not make them stronger.
