Here are your Week 5 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Sit.
Green Bay Packers Team Defense at Dallas Cowboys
The Packers defense raised some eyebrows at the start of the season. Their young secondary is playing above the rim, and in this league you have to be able to defend on edges. But last week, the Packers were exposed by the Eagles who used a lot of Wham that Green Bay did not have an answer for. And if you can’t stop the run, you don’t have a defense. The Cowboys have a good enough offensive line that they don’t need to run Wham per se, but they’re studying what the Eagles did and impose their will on the Packers and it’s a blueprint to take the emphasis off of the Packers’ secondary and the edge to the opposing offense.
