Weekly Fantasy Football – Week 5 Defense Picks

Week 5 marks the first week of byes, which limits the available fantasy players this week. Baltimore, which has been the only dominant defense through 4 weeks, is off. There are not too many other defenses that you can be confident in no matter the opponent. The best advice may be stay away from whoever is playing Aaron Rodgers.

Week 5

1. New York Giants

The Giants have a great defensive line, and although they have given up a lot of points, they should be able to force Tarvaris Jackson into mistakes and turnovers. The Giants have 8 takeaways, and they should have a strong game against the 30th ranked Seattle offense.

2. Cincinnati

The Bengals are surprisingly leading the league in total defense giving up only 275 yards per game. Their solid defense stepped up to knock off the undefeated Bills in week 4, and should have an easier time against Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars in week 5. Jacksonville has scored the least points in the league at only 9.8 points per game, and the Bengals should be able to shut them down.

3. Detroit

Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford are getting most of the pub for Detroit’s 4-0 start, but their defense has been impressive in its own right. After starting out slow, they have only allowed 13 total points in the second half against the Vikings and Cowboys. They also had two TD’s on picks against Tony Romo in week 4. Look for the Lions front to pressure Jay Cutler, who is prone to bad decisions.

4. New York Jets

It is generally not wise to pick a defense that is going to New England to face Tom Brady. However, Rex Ryan and the Jets have contained the Patriots offense better than any other team the past two years, including a brilliant performance in the playoffs last year. The Jets have been the second best fantasy defense behind the Ravens, and could frustrate Tom Brady this week. UFABET เว็บพนันบอลดีที่สุด

5. Tennessee

The Titans have the best scoring defense in the league, giving up only 14 points per game, just ahead of 14.3 from the Ravens. This week they go to Pittsburgh, a team that looks much weaker than the super bowl team from last year. Mike Wallace is dangerous, but overall the Steelers have struggled to score. This one should be a defensive struggle.

Sleeper: Houston

After having one of the worst defenses in the league for the last several years, the Texans look much more physical than they ever have. They rank 4th in scoring defense giving up only 17.5 points per game. Although they are not great against the rush, if they can get ahead of Oakland early, it might force Jason Campell to attempt to bring the Raiders back.
