The 2018 NFL season is just five weeks old and it’s time to start picking up streaming defenses from your fantasy football waiver wire, they are wrong. Unless you own a top-5 defense, you are better off finding the best option each week from your fantasy football waiver wire. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the team defense that is going to help you win your matchup.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire team defenses that could help your team in Week 6.
Dallas Cowboys, D/ST
The Cowboys’ streak of games with multiple sacks ended at four in Week 5, but they got their first interception of the season off Deshaun Watson while registering their third fumble recovery in five games.
Blake Bortles threw for 430 volume-based yards in Week 5 (61 attempts), but he also accounted for five turnovers (four interceptions) and was sacked five times against the Chiefs. Over the last three games, Bortles has been sacked 10 times.
The Cowboys only sacked Watson once in Week 5, but they hit him 10 times and they’ll surely put similar heat on Bortles Sunday afternoon. If only as a high-upside streamer, the Dallas defense is a top add this week.
