They did lose a big piece on defense, as veteran do-it-all safety Charles Woodson signed with the Raiders. He has reinvented himself as a blitzing safety in Green Bay's defense, and the team will struggle to replace his production. They do get steady play from corners Tramon Williams and Sam Shields, though. Overall, this is a strong fantasy defense. They do a good job of getting after the quarterback and creating turnovers, the two things you really look for when rostering a defense for the entire season. Heading into the year, I consider them a top-10 option at the position.
