Here are your Week 5 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Start.

Carolina Panthers Team Defense vs. New York Giants

The Panthers’ defense has been right on the border in the month of September. They’ve held just one team under 10 points, did not look good against the Falcons but they are forcing turnovers. Last week’s bye allowed them to bring in Eric Reid, who will only help a secondary that needed a quality safety. As for the Giants, they continue to underachieve failing to score at least 20 points now three times. Eli Manning has been tossed around, sacked 15 times so far, and as a team they do not protect the ball. There are superstars on the Giants, some at key positions but they’ve been unable to put it all together, especially against an above average defense. – Ernie Estrella
