Dallas Cowboys, D/ST
Dallas allowed 34 points to the Green Bay Packers in Week 5, but they did register two sacks to put up one solitary fantasy point (Yahoo! scoring). A nice rebound opportunity is coming this week.
The New York Jets entered Week 5 ceding the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing defenses (Yahoo! scoring), and the Philadelphia Eagles scored two defensive touchdowns with 10 sacks last Sunday (the first time those two things were done in NFL history) on their way to 35 fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring). Quarterback Sam Darnold (mono/spleen) may return this week, but it will obviously be his first game back and if he doesn’t play Luke Falk will get another start for the Jets.
In what looks like a decent week for streaming defenses, the Cowboys look to be atop the heap as the inept Jets’ offense makes for an easy target until further notice.
