Packers vs. Lions: Fantasy football projections featuring Jordy Nelson, Mikel LeShoure, Calvin Johnson

Gregory Shamus

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 11 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions host the Green Bay Packers in a fairly significant Week 11 NFC North matchup. This game could prove to be a shootout, opening the door for all sorts of fantasy options. Fantasy football is closing in on the playoffs, which means every week ends up that much more important. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 11, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers welcome back Jordy Nelson after he suffered an ankle injury in their Week 9 win over the Cardinals. He had the bye to rest up and got in three partial practices this week, listed as limited Wednesday through Friday. If he is active, as expected, his impact is as much on James Jones and Randall Cobb as it is on his own production. Jones remains the better option of the latter two, but this is a situation to monitor.

Detroit Lions

The Lions appear to be getting back on track, which means Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are both strong options in this potential shootout. The bigger question will be in the run game. Mikel LeShoure remains the starter, but Joique Bell is developing into a fantasy pest. He is not generally worth starting, but he cuts into LeShoure enough that it's a pain. LeShoure is a solid start this week, but his value takes a modest hit from Bell's touches.
