Detroit Lions
vs
Green Bay Packers
Ford Field | Thursday, Nov. 28 | 12:30 PM EST (FOX)

Green Bay Packers

    1. Matt Flynn
    2. Matt
      Flynn
      QB
    3. PASS YDS286
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Flynn relieved an ineffective Scott Tolzien last week and looks in line to make his first start for the Packers since his one-game contract push in 2011.

    1. Eddie Lacy
    2. Eddie
      Lacy
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS63
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS7
    6. REC TD0

    Lacy had a huge game against Minnesota's terrible run defense last week, but his task is much tougher on Thanksgiving. The Lions allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.

    1. Jordy Nelson
    2. Jordy
      Nelson
      WR
    3. REC YDS98
    4. REC TD1

    Nelson had four catches for 58 yards last week, and is a strong WR2 against a Detroit defense allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Jarrett Boykin
    2. Jarrett
      Boykin
      WR
    3. REC YDS74
    4. REC TD0

    Boykin conintued to chug right along without the services of Aaron Rodgers, catching five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown last week. He's a high-end WR3 against Detroit.

    1. James Jones
    2. James
      Jones
      WR
    3. REC YDS38
    4. REC TD0

    Jones had seven receptions for 80 yards a week ago, his best game since Aaron Rodgers' shoulder injury. He's still running third on the fantasy depth chart behind Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin, though.

    1. Brandon Bostick
    2. Brandon
      Bostick
      TE
    3. REC YDS41
    4. REC TD0

    Bostick had five targets last week, but caught just one of them for 24 yards. Now that byes are over, he shouldn't be on your radar.

    1. Mason Crosby
    2. Mason
      Crosby
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    Crosby made both of his field-goal attempts last week, and is now 25-for-29 on the year.

    1. Green Bay Packers
    2. PTS ALLOWED31
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Packers sacked Christian Ponder six times a week ago, but they're really only a viable option in extremely favorable matchups. This is not one of those.

Detroit Lions

    1. Matthew Stafford
    2. Matthew
      Stafford
      QB
    3. PASS YDS322
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Stafford is one of the few quarterbacks in the league who could undermine a 297-yard, three-score day with four interceptions. Get him active against a Green Bay defense that allows the 12th-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

    1. Reggie Bush
    2. Reggie
      Bush
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS83
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS33
    6. REC TD0

    Bush totaled 102 yards from scrimmage last week, and is a strong play, as always, this week.

    1. Joique Bell
    2. Joique
      Bell
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS26
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS14
    6. REC TD0

    Bell should be stashed on your bench now that bye weeks are behind us.

    1. Calvin Johnson
    2. Calvin
      Johnson
      WR
    3. REC YDS124
    4. REC TD2

    Johnson had seven receptions for 115 yards last week. He's in line for a big day, even though the Green Bay secondary is back to full strength.

    1. Kris Durham
    2. Kris
      Durham
      WR
    3. REC YDS56
    4. REC TD1

    Durham got six targets last week and could be a decent WR3 option if you need help at the position this week.

    1. Brandon Pettigrew
    2. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    3. REC YDS50
    4. REC TD0

    Pettigrew had three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown last week. He gets targeted from time to time but shouldn't be on your radar now that the bye weeks are done.

    1. David Akers
    2. David
      Akers
      K
    3. PAT4
    4. FG1

    Akers only trotted onto the field for three PATs last week. He is 14-for-18 on field-goal attempts this season.

    1. Detroit Lions
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS4
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Packers are vulnerable without Aaron Rodgers, but this still isn't a great matchup for a defense that has struggled against the pass this year.
