Rent-a-Defense: Week 6

A look at waiver wire defense performances in Week 5 and a look ahead to the best candidates to add for Week 6

Unless most of the teams in your league carry a backup defense, more than half of the league should be available to you every week. Perhaps instead of playing one above average defense every week, regardless of matchup, we should instead target the widely available waiver wire defenses with the best matchups in any particular week? You can always make exceptions if your rent-a-defense gets hot - heck, you might find a team worth starting all year by accident. Even if you don't, good matchups will continue to get greater in number as more QBs get injured or yanked as the season goes on. You can steal some points from bad weather come December. Each week I'll list the startable fantasy defenses on most waiver wires and rank them.

**Kansas City and Jacksonville have great Week 6 matchups, but are assumed to be owned in most leagues**

Week 5 Results

Detroit (vs Carolina) - 3 sacks

The Lions D/ST’s hot streak came to screeching halt with the outstanding afternoon from Cam Newton. The Lions defense stuffed Jonathan Stewart, but had no answer for Ed Dickson.

A Look Ahead: @NO BYE PIT - We don’t play D/ST’s heading into the Superdome.
