Green Bay Packers
DST - GB
Week 7 Outlook
The Green Bay Packers' defense allowed only 67 rushing yards and forced an interception and a fumble during Sunday's 30-28 Week 3 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
The Packers' defense, much-maligned entering Sunday's contest in San Francisco, held firm and forced two turnovers during a huge Week 3 win over the 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo was sacked four times and faced continuous pressure in the pocket without establishing a running game. Believe it or not, the Packers D/ST could be a solid streaming option against a bad Pittsburgh Steelers offense in Week 4.
The Green Bay Packers defense gave up 344 yards of total offense and two touchdowns during Monday's 35-17 Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions.
After an embarrassing performance against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, the Packers defense forced an interception and held Jared Goff to 246 passing yards to coast to a divisional win in Week 2. While they improved, it's a D/ST that will travel to face Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3. Continue fading the Packers D/ST until they prove to be a consistent threat to opposing offenses.
The Green Bay Packers defense allowed 322 yards and five touchdowns during Sunday's 38-3 Week 1 loss against the New Orleans Saints.
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.
The Green Bay Packers DST gave up 23 points and had one sack in Saturday's preseason loss to the Jets.
The Packers DST really came together in the second half against the Jets, allowing no touchdowns in the second half. This bodes well for the team's depth, though they did struggle to get pressure on QB Zach Wilson as he completed nine of his 11 attempts for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.
The Green Bay Packers D/ST gave up 31 points and had one sack and three interceptions in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.
The Packers D/ST really came together in the second half of 2020, once the secondary got healthy. They scored double-digit points in three straight games to end the season and could be a fantasy-relevant D/ST in 2021.
