The Jacksonville Jaguars host the Detroit Lions host in a fairly brutal inter-conference matchup. There are some intriguing fantasy options, which might be the only reason to watch this game. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
The Lions pulled out a key win last week, and seemed to start getting their passing attack moving in a positive direction. Matthew Stafford had a big game, throwing for 352 yards, and Titus Young led the receivers with 100 yards. Calvin Johnson remains a bit of an enigma with back-to-back single digit fantasy performances. His situation is complicated by the fact that he sat out all three days of practice with knee issues. He is listed as questionable but is expected to play. If he is active, you generally have to start him, unless you feel daring.
The Jaguars passing game is a mess with Blaine Gabbert struggling for anything resembling consistency. This lowers the value of his receivers, although Cecil Shorts is showing some PPR value. The Jaguars biggest fantasy offering is at running back. Rashad Jennings faces a poor Lions rush defense as Maurice Jones-Drew remains out. This opens the door for some big things for Jennings.
