Big Ben had a sick game against the Chargers, compiling a 128.9 passer rating with 333 yards on 26/33 passing with 2 TD and no INT. While his numbers on the season (5 TD, 4 INT) aren't spectacular, he's connected on over 70% of his passes and is a definite No. 1 fantasy option against the Lions.
Mendenhall went for 165 yards on 29 carries last week and figures to see more and more carries in the coming weeks. Consider Mendenhall to be a good No. 2 fantasy RB option with Willie Parker sidelined (turf toe).
He's the No. 1 WR on the pass happy Super Bowl Champs, despite having a subpar 4 for 52 against the Chargers (against whom he historically struggles). The sky is the limit against the Lions' 27th ranked pass D. A No. 1 option.
Ward is 3rd in the NFL with 26 catches after going for 8 rec and 113 rec yards against the Chargers. Clearly, Big Ben trusts him implicitly. He is always a good No. 2 WR option in any league, especially PPR leagues.
A good red zone option for Big Ben, Miller had 2 TDs against the Chargers. With 24 receptions on the year, he is approaching the top tier of fantasy TEs. He's a great option, a must-start if you will, against the Lions.
With 3 TDs and 6 INTs on the year, Stafford is an inadvisable option against anybody, let alone the Steel Curtain. He twisted his knee against the Bears and may not play. Daunte Culpepper is also an inadvisable start if he can't go.
Megatron is SICK, any way you slice it, one of the top talents in the game. After getting 133 yards on 8 catches against the Bears, Johnson is back to his spot amongst the elite WRs. Figure the Lions to be down big in the 2nd half, and whomever the QB is to be chucking it up in his direction. Must start against any opponent.
The highly touted rook had his best game as a pro with 4 catches for 64 yards against the Bears. Going forward, it's safe to move him up into the low-end of the top tier of TEs based on his prodigious talent alone.
