160 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 10 rush yards, 2 INTThere is a chance that Matthew Stafford could return this week, though the Lions may choose to sit him against the Giants pass rush, especially with a bye in Week 7. Hill has proved more than capable as a starter in placed of the injured Stafford.
3 rec, 35 rec yards, 40 rush yards, 1 rush TDWith the Lions' offense clicking at the moment, Best looks like a safe weekly fantasy starter regardless of matchup. The Giants held Arian Foster to just 25 yards last week, however. Keep that in mind in case you are deep at running back.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 5 rush yardsEven in a blowout, Smith saw just three carries last week. His only fantasy value is as a handcuff to Jahvid Best, and a poor one at that.
5 rec, 75 yards, 1 TDJohnson had four receptions for 54 yards and touchdown last week before leaving the blowout with a shoulder injury. He should be healthy this week, which makes him a safe starter once again.
1 rec, 10 yardsIn his first game back from an ankle injury, Burleson was more than capable, catching four passes for 56 yards and a score. The matchup against the Giants' secondary favors the Lions receivers, assuming if whoever is at QB can get the ball off.
4 rec, 35 yardsPettigrew recorded the first touchdown of his career during last week's win over St. Louis. Both he and Tony Scheffler had four receptions. While either tight end would be more valuable if the other weren't around, both still see plenty of targets.
2 PATs, 1 FGHanson has attempted eight field goals the past two weeks, coinciding with the Lions' own steps forward on offense. They may have more difficulty moving the ball against a Giants' front seven that is playing extremely well at the moment, however.
2 sacks, 1 INTThe Detroit defense actually netted some decent fantasy points last week, forcing three turnovers and scoring two touchdowns off a kick return and an interception. Still, recent history suggests that the Lions are not a good defensive team.
235 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 1 INTManning wasn't spectacular last week against what has been, to date, a swiss cheese secondary in Houston. It's tough to argue with three touchdowns, however, and the Lions' secondary again presents another favorable matchup.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 90 rush yards, 2 rush TDEven on a dinged-up ankle, the coaching staff trusted Bradshaw with 16 carries last week. The Lions are giving up plenty of yards on the ground this season, making Bradshaw a safe start.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 40 rush yardsJacobs had 10 carries last week and was able to find the end zone for the second week in a row. Most of his action came when the game was out of hand, however. Ahmad Bradshaw is still the primary back in New York, so temper expectations.
6 rec, 80 yards, 1 TDNicks was targeted 17 times on Sunday, and put up huge numbers as a result. He has become Eli Manning's first read on most passing downs, and is a valuable receiver in the red zone as well (his two touchdowns last week came from 6 and 12 yards out).
5 rec, 60 yards, 1 TDSmith has seen at least eight targets in every game this season. While he doesn't have the big-play potential of Hakeem Nicks, he is still a good WR2 or WR3 in many fantasy formats.
3 rec, 45 yardsWith Steven Smith and Hakeem Nicks hogging targets (a combined 25 on Sunday), Manningham was thrown to just twice against Houston and failed to record a catch. Don't expect much from him unless the deep passes are there.
2 rec, 30 yardsBoss had four receptions last week, but his production is too inconsistent as a whole to recommend in any week, even against a lowly Lions secondary.
4 PATs, 1 FGTynes already has three misses in seven field-goal attempts this season. It's not easy to tell whether a kicker is bad or simply slumping. However, the evidence that does exist suggests that you should be able to find a better option than Tynes.
4 sacks, 2 INT, 1 FumbleThe Lions offense put on a clinic against the Rams, but the Giants front seven has been lights out lately. Give the adavantage to latter this week, especially against a poor offensive line.
