If you own Matthew Stafford he is a solid play this week as the Detroit Lions play the Chicago bears in a crucial NFC North contest. According to SB Nation's fantasy partner NumberFire, the Lions quarterback rates as one of the top projected quarterbacks this week. He is one of several solid plays for the Lions:
Matthew Stafford - Stafford rates as the No. 3 quarterback this week, projected to score 16.74 points in standard scoring leagues. Only Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are higher.
Calvin Johnson - Megatron is another no-brainer play this week. His numbers as a receiver are a surprisingly low 11.66, but he is the No. 5 rated receiver in the NFL this week.
Brandon Pettigrew - Pettigrew is a surprisingly high rated tight end at 8.07 points. That's good enough for the No. 4 spot among the NFL's tight ends.
Jason Hanson - Mr. Reliable projects as the No. 10 kicker this week.
Maurice Morris - You can likely do better than the No. 30 running back this week.
