Week 3: at Green Bay Packers
All TE vs GB
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Matthew Stafford kept the Lions close to the Titans last Sunday, with 22/40 for 260 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown (he did take four sacks for -22 yards, though). As has become usual, Marvin Jones was the most-targeted Lions' receiver with 11 for 8/118/0 receiving, while Golden Tate saw nine chances but only pulled in 2/13/0. Eric Ebron (seven for 4/53/0), Anquan Boldin (seven for 4/48/1) and Theo Riddick (five for 4/28/0) all also saw mid-single-digit targets from Stafford. We'll see if Stafford finds a trip to Green Bay stimulating (last year he threw 47/73 for 462 yards passing, four TDs and one interception over two games vs. Green Bay, with two TDs in each contest).
The Packers' pass defense averages 277.0 net passing yards allowed per game so far this year (19th in the NFL) with three passing scores given up vs. one interception and seven sacks (tied for third-most in the NFL to date) generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, Green Bay has averaged 20.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (18th in the NFL); and 23.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (15th); with 13.2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (third-most in the league).
A so-so defense with a raucous 12th-man awaits the division-rival Lions' passing attack in this neutral matchup.
