I actually think its more the opposite. We're going to be raising a ton of value hands on this flop because we want to drive out any equity the SB has at this point and get the pot heads up. A clever opponent will know this and know our flop call is super weak, basically a very weak made hand or some type of weak over card hand and he should 2 barrel a ton.
If we want to balance this (not saying we should) by having some value hands we can raise on blank turns, we want to delay with hands that cost us the least by allowing SB to come along cheaply and don't miss out on a ton of value when BB has a big hand, TP+FD fits nicely into this category.
If we raise and BB 3-bets the flop, we can't really jam or at least its not a fist pump. Its not like we're sacrificing 3-4 bets by delaying, where as if we slow played a set, we could be sacrificing that many.
