Washington Redskins
vs
Detroit Lions
FedEX Field | Sunday, Sep. 22 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

Detroit Lions

    1. Matthew Stafford
    2. Matthew
      Stafford
      QB
    3. PASS YDS351
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    The Redskins have allowed 1,023 yards and six touchdowns through the air already this season. It's going to be a nice day for Stafford.

    1. Joique Bell
    2. Joique
      Bell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS64
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS18
    6. REC TD0

    With Reggie Bush likely out due to a knee injury, Bell is worth starting this week.

    1. Calvin Johnson
    2. Calvin
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS163
    4. REC TD2

    That's more like it. After just four catches for 30 yards in Week 1, Johnson had six receptions for 116 yards and a score last week. He'll keep it rolling against Washington.

    1. Nate Burleson
    2. Nate
      Burleson
      WR
    3. REC YDS72
    4. REC TD0

    Burleson had eight targets last week and could be in for a nice day against the shoddy Washington secondary.

    1. Ryan Broyles
    2. Ryan
      Broyles
      WR
    3. REC YDS39
    4. REC TD0

    We'll have to wait to see whether Broyles gets on the field this week, but he has apparently recovered from knee surgery.

    1. Brandon Pettigrew
    2. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    3. REC YDS48
    4. REC TD0

    After another disappointing week for Pettigrew, I'm writing him off as a fantasy option this season.

    1. David Akers
    2. David
      Akers
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG3

    Washington's defense has been a sieve, giving kickers plenty of scoring opportunities. That will continue with Akers' big day Sunday.

    1. Detroit Lions
    2. PTS ALLOWED31
    3. SACKS1
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    Detroit's defensive line gets a ton of attention, but this defense as a whole quite simply isn't very good.

Washington Redskins

    1. Robert Griffin III
    2. Robert
      Griffin III
      QB
    3. PASS YDS339
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS14
    7. RUSH TD0

    Washington has lost both games this year, but Griffin has thrown up some impressive garbage-time stats. His owners should be encouraged.

    1. Alfred Morris
    2. Alfred
      Morris
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS110
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    Morris had a huge day on the ground against the Packers, rushing for 107 yards on just 13 carries. He'll have another big day against an overrated Lions defense.

    1. Pierre Garcon
    2. Pierre
      Garcon
      WR
    3. REC YDS109
    4. REC TD1

    Garcon again had double-digit targets and caught eight of them for 143 yards and a TD. I'd be shocked if he didn't finish the year as a WR1.

    1. Leonard Hankerson
    2. Leonard
      Hankerson
      WR
    3. REC YDS45
    4. REC TD0

    Hankerson caught all three balls thrown his way for 35 yards last week, but he's too much of a lottery ticket to count on in fantasy leagues.

    1. Santana Moss
    2. Santana
      Moss
      WR
    3. REC YDS32
    4. REC TD0

    Moss found the end zone against the Packers, but there are far too many receiving options on this team to rely on him.

    1. Joshua Morgan
    2. Joshua
      Morgan
      WR
    3. REC YDS27
    4. REC TD0

    Morgan has some big-play ability, but he's way too far down the depth chart for fantasy owners to consider him.

    1. Fred Davis
    2. Fred
      Davis
      TE
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD1

    Davis was a no-show again last week and now is dealing with two other tight ends in the offense.

    1. Jordan Reed
    2. Jordan
      Reed
      TE
    3. REC YDS36
    4. REC TD0

    If I had to own a Washington tight end, I'd make it Reed. However, I don't have to own a Washington tight end.

    1. Kai Forbath
    2. Kai
      Forbath
      K
    3. PAT4
    4. FG1

    Forbath missed last week's game with a groin injury, making it very hard to count on him this week.

    1. Washington Redskins
    2. PTS ALLOWED30
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    Another week, another terrible performance from this defense. Stay far, far away.
