I think in general, team options are the easy ones. If it's someone you want to protect, you value them and would be picking up the team option anyway. If it's someone you don't want to protect, you probably don't like them and would decline the team option anyway
The only exception I can think of would be if:
- you have 8 guys you want to protect
- you have 1 more guy with a team option
- everyone else is a UFA so you can't protect them
Since you *must* leave one player unprotected, in this case you could pick up the TO just so you can put *someone* on the unprotected list that isn't one of your 8, and the risk of being stuck with him is better than the risk of losing one of your 8. But that would be a pretty rare situation.
