Washington Redskins, D/ST
Yes, the Redskins’ defense allowed 33 points to the New England Patriots in Week 5. But they also sacked Tom Brady four times, and they’ve got an interception in four straight games now. This unit is not a long long-term fantasy add, but the matchup in Week 6 is too good to totally ignore if you’re in a pinch.
The Miami Dolphins entered their Week 5 bye allowing the most fantasy points to opposing defenses by a pretty good margin. The first team to score on Sunday may be the team that wins, in a “battle” that may wind up deciding the top of the 2020 draft, so even the Dolphins’ defense could be a desperation streamer this week.
Focusing strictly on the Redskins, if you’re struggling to find a streaming defense for Week 6 you can do a lot worse.
