Texans vs. Lions: Fantasy football projections featuring Arian Foster, Matt Schaub, Mikel LeShoure

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 11 matchup between the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions kick off Thanksgiving once again, hosting the Houston Texans in a Week 12 Thursday showdown. The three Thursday games means fantasy lineups need to be double checked since odds are high that you have players going. Fantasy football playoffs are approaching, which means every week is a vital matchup. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 12, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Houston Texans

The Houston Texans are coming off a monster offensive performance that saw Matt Schaub enter rarified air with 527 passing yards and five touchdowns. Heading into Detroit, fantasy owners can expect a shootout, but don't count on 500+ yards again. He is a stable quarterback who will have his peaks and valleys, but is a fairly steady option.

Arian Foster struggled a bit in the Texans shootout with Jacksonville and is piling up the carries. He remains a must-start, but we'll see if the Texans cut back on his carries at all anytime soon.

Detroit Lions

The Lions are coming off a tough home loss to the Packers that has them reeling once again with the playoff race heating up. The big news in Detroit is the one-game suspension of Titus Young. Ryan Broyles enters the lineup and will look to make a name for himself after being a relatively hot player on the waiver wire. Even with Houston's strong defense, this game provides an opportunity for some offensive fireworks with Detroit getting the home matchup.
