Lions vs. Vikings: Fantasy football projections featuring Calvin Johnson, Percy Harvin, Mikel LeShoure

Al Messerschmidt

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 10 matchup between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings.

The Minnesota Vikings host the Detroit Lions in a huge NFC North showdown. There are some noteworthy starts and pertinent injuries to consider in a matchup of some great fantasy options. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Detroit Lions

The Lions stumbled early in the season, but appear to be working their way back into playoff contention. Last week saw Calvin Johnson get back over 100 yards receiving in a week in which plenty were questioning whether to start him. Facing a struggling Vikings defense, Johnson and Matthew Stafford are both strong options in Week 10. Johnson sat out Wednesday and Thursday practice, and was limited on Friday, but he is fully expected to play on Sunday.

Minnesota Vikings

There is no doubt about starting Adrian Peterson even with his ankle injury. He sat out Thursday practice, but was otherwise a full participant. The big question is Percy Harvin, who sat out practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday. Doubtful means 25% chance of playing, so odds are pretty slim for him. You'll want to consider other options outside of Minnesota's other receiving options.
