Colts vs. Lions: Fantasy football projections featuring Calvin Johnson, Andrew Luck, Matthew Stafford


We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 13 matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Detroit Lions.

The Detroit Lions host the Indianapolis at 1:00PM in Week 13. The 7-4 Colts are looking to solidify their wild-card position, while the 4-7 Lions are just hanging by a thread. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for Week 13, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne have juicy matchups against Detroit's banged up secondary. Look for solid fantasy days from them both. As for the other receivers, T.Y. Hilton has really clicked with Luck and has the most big-play ability of the group. He at least has more upside than Donnie Avery--take note, keeper and Dynasty players.

The running game is still not really working, although Vick Ballard is a decent flex play and has more to offer than Donald Brown.

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford is getting hot at the right time. It may not be enough to save the Lions' season, but he's a solid QB1 against the Colts' porous secondary and should be a fine play for the fantasy playoffs. Calvin Johnson is chasing Jerry Rice's single-season receiving yards record, and he should make some nice progress this week. Ryan Broyles emerged as a quality No. 2 WR after Titus Young pouted his way out of the starting job (by the way, you should drop Young from your roster if you haven't done so already).

The run game isn't much to write home about, but Mikel LeShoure is usually good for red-zone carries. You could do worse as a flex guy.
