Week Five of the NFL season is the official week of scheduled byes. If you have any players on the Detroit Lions or Green Bay Packers adjust your line-ups accordingly.
Dallas Cowboys – Rostered in 20% of Leagues
There is a reason the Cowboys are only rostered in 20% of fantasy leagues. They are an extremely generous defense. So much so that they gave up 49 points to the Cleveland Browns last week.
This week will be the tell. They will go up against the New York Giants. The Giants offense is bad, maybe worse than the Cowboys defense. They are averaging 11.75 points per game. For the season the Giants have scored a total of 47 points in four games.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS- Rostered in 28.6% of Leagues
The Chiefs will play the Las Vegas Raiders. Derek Carr has not thrown an interception. His team is also reeling from two losses where they only managed to score 20 and 23 points.
Where you will get the defensive points is in the sacks column. The Raiders have allowed Carr to be sacked 4.64% of the time. The Chiefs sacks the quarterback 8.45% which is the fifth best in the NFL.
ARIZONA CARDINALS – Rostered in 41.3% of Leagues
The Cardinals defense is not a turnover machine. They are however, adept at sacking the quarterback.
This week they will play the New York Jets. The Jets not only get their quarterback sacked 7.89% of the time, but they are abysmal on offense. They average 16.2 points a game (31st in league) and their quarterback is only completing 60% of his passes (30th in the league).
Good luck in Week 5!
