Here are your Week 6 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Start.
Green Bay Packers Team Defense vs. San Francisco 49ers
Five weeks ago, we’d stray away from this matchup, but after season-ending injuries to Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon, and their receivers limping into Week 6, the Niners are ripe for the picking. The Packers defense has not given any line of consistency all season, alternating one lackluster performance with a fantasy worthy one. They’ve given up an average of 30.0 points in three of their last four games, but they are getting to the quarterback and causing turnovers. They’ve also kept three quarterbacks under 200 yards passing. Meanwhile the Niners are averaging just under 20.0 points per game, since Garoppolo went down. C.J. Beathard has thrown two picks in each of his last two starts.
