Lions vs. Packers: Fantasy football projections featuring Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers

Gregory Shamus

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 14 matchup between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.

Week 14 is the beginning of the fantasy playoffs for most owners, so Sunday Night Football could have major implications this time around. The Detroit Lions face the Green Bay Packers in a matchup with several fantasy stars on both sides. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup for this final game, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Detroit Lions

The Lions managed 362 yards at home against the Packers a few weeks ago. Matthew Stafford only completed 17 of 39 passes in that game, but his last two performances have been much more impressive. He should be able to post stronger stats this time around, especially if he and Calvin Johnson continue to hook up for huge numbers. With Ryan Broyles and Titus Young on injured reserve, Mike Thomas should see an increase in action. He might be worth a flex play if the Lions get him more involved. Mikel Leshoure faces a defense that has allowed a rushing touchdown in four straight games now.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions in Week 11. After seeing Detroit give up 391 yards and four scores to Andrew Luck last Sunday, we would expect Rodgers to find the end zone several times yet again. Jordy Nelson does not look like he'll be suiting up, leaving James Jones to benefit again. Randall Cobb remains the top option with the excessive amount of targets he's seeing lately. Greg Jennings should also be in for a better day after making a return with four receptions in Week 13.
