Green Bay Packers defense gives up five touchdowns to Saints in Week 1 loss

The Green Bay Packers defense allowed 322 yards and five touchdowns during Sunday's 38-3 Week 1 loss against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact:

The Packers' defense could not contain Jameis Winston, who threw for five touchdowns despite totaling just 148 passing yards. Alvin Kamara and Tony Jones Jr. comprised a strong rushing presence, which allowed Winston to pick apart the Green Bay secondary on play-action passes. A strong defensive effort from the Saints set the offense up in plus-territory frequently, allowing for the abundance of touchdowns. Desperate fantasy managers can turn to the Packers D/ST for streaming in deeper leagues next week when they return home to face the Detroit Lions.
