Fantasy Football Week 4 Defense Projections: Falcons, Lions Receive Good Rankings

SB Nation Fantasy Football partner, playthisguy.com, uses the wisdom of crowds approach to ranking fantasy football players each week. The idea is they survey Internet sites who dispense fantasy football rankings, 19 of them this week, and combine those into one easily digestible list.

Everybody loves the Packers defense this week against the Broncos offense, both computers and humans. They top the list in both of our partner's projections. The Falcons defense gets a boost this week as they take on an anemic Seahawks offense. It's good enough to rank Atlanta fourth.

Even though the Eagles defense has been sketchy so far this year, against the 49ers, they get high marks in Week 4 and come in sixth. The Cowboys have a high-powered offense but they couldn't score a touchdown last week. That, combined with the Cowboys injury situation on offense, has vaulted the Lions defense into eighth place this week.

Week 4 Consensus Rankings

1. Green Bay Packers (GB vs. DEN)
2. Baltimore Ravens (BAL vs. NYJ)
3. New Orleans Saints (NO @ JAX)
4. Atlanta Falcons (ATL @ SEA)
5. San Diego Chargers (SD vs. MIA)
6. Philadelphia Eagles (PHI vs. SF)
7. Washington Redskins (WAS @ STL)
8. Detroit Lions (DET @ DAL)
9. Chicago Bears (CHI vs. CAR)
10. New York Giants (NYG @ ARI)
