Berrian, a game-time decision because of a lingering hammy issue, was an afterthought in Week 1, being thrown to twice and not registering a completion. This week, however, look for him to be more a part of the offense as Detroit stacks the box to try and contain Adrian Peterson. Starting him is a calculated risk, but he did have 160 yards and a TD in two games against Detroit in 2008.
Harvin's 58 total yards and a TD against the Browns in Week 1 were just a taste of what the explosive rookie can achieve. With the presence of Adrian Peterson looming over opposing defenses like Sauron over Middle Earth, the sneaky Harvin is a threat to bust one every time he touches the ball
Shiancoe is very well thought of, and will be the beneficiary of Favre's experience and guile. Jeremy Shockey was able to beat the porous Lions' D for two TDs last week and Shiancoe is poised on the brink of a fine week.
Smith should run slightly better than in Week 1, where he only rushed for 20 yards, but he will be held in check by the Williams wall. Look for him as a frequent dump off option for Stafford, who targeted his back 9 times against the Saints.
Like last season, the Lions are going to throw the ball a lot in the 2nd half this year. Megatron will be on the receiving end of many of those attempts. An overwhelmed Matthey Stafford will come to rely on Johnson, as he did in Week 1 when he threw his way 13 times.
Johnson (4 rec, 45 rec yards) was thrown to 8 times last week. Again, since Detroit will be throwing the ball so often, he could turn out to be a decent fantasy option, just not yet. Take a wait and see approach with him.
The rookie did not catch a pass last week. Look for him to catch his first NFL passes vs. Minnesota. He's not a recommended start, but is a real sleeper. He wasn't the consensus top TE in the 2009 because of a lack of talent. If Stafford gains confidence in him, Pettigrew could have a decent year.
