Packers' corner Jaire Alexander inactive versus Matthew Stafford, Lions
Green Bay Packers defensive back Jaire Alexander is inactive Week 5 against the Detroit Lions.
Alexander, the 18th overall pick in this year's draft, enters Week 5 as Pro Football Focus' 12th-ranked cover corner out of 110 qualifiers. He has played the second-most snaps at corner behind Tramon Williams in the Packers' secondary. That boosts the outlooks of Matthew Stafford and his trio of receivers in Golden Tate, Kenny Golladay, and Marvin Jones (ankle).
Alexander has 18 tackles (14 solo) with 1 interception, 1 pass deflection, and 1 sack through the first four games of his NFL career. The Packers D/ST is 16th in numberFire's Week 5 fantasy rankings. Tate (WR11), Jones (WR28), and Golladay (WR30) are all considered top-30 options at their position.
