Detroit (23.5) AT Green Bay (22.5)
Jared Goff travels to Green Bay on the short week as a slight favorite. Goff has struggled mightily away from the dome scoring over 15 DK points once in his last eight road games. Goff has a passing prop of 255.5 yards but he has been under that number in a 7/8 road games. I will be underweight on him and only a Flex option for me.
Jordan Love has been a solid option fantasy-wise to open the season. Love has scored 20+ DK points in every game this year and holds a solid rushing upside. Last week Love had 39 yards rushing and a touchdown on the ground. He is priced just under 10K at 9.8K and will be in consideration for a Captain play and overweight in the Flex spot.
We need to monitor the news here with David Montgomery. I am leaning towards him playing here but think he could play at a reduced snap count. At the time of writing this, there are no props listed for any RBs as both teams have questionable players. Montgomery found the endzone in both games he has played this season and the 6.8K tag is fair. Gibbs is priced all the way up to 9.6K and I expect his ownership to be low making him a great GPP option. 17 carries for 80 yards last week playing just over half the snaps.
Aaron Jones is also questionable to play tonight but I am also leaning towards him playing. Jones was on his way to a big game vs. Chicago in week 1 before leaving due to injury. Jones played 28 snaps and had 9 carries and 2 catches for 127 total yards and 2 touchdowns. Aaron Jones has the 2nd highest tag on the slate at 10.8K and is in consideration for Captain and Flex spots. I think Dillon is dust and overpriced here making him an easy fade for me.
Amon-Ra St. Brown was not affected by the turf toe last week as he crossed 100+ yards for the 2nd straight week catching 9 of 12 targets for 102 yards. St. Brown is a good bet to lead the slate in points but I might give him a slight downtick for Goff being on the road. Great option for Captain and Flex play regardless. ASB has a prop of 72.5 yards and 6.5 receptions. After 2 solid games to start the year Reynolds did not register a stat last week playing 54/70 snaps. I expect a bounce back here and has a fair tag of 6.2K. Raymond 5.2K, has only played roughly 30% of the snaps in each game but did find the endzone in week 2. Flex option for me in GPPs.
We need to monitor the Christian Watson news as he remains questionable. Watson is priced at $600 less than Romeo Doubs and could be a great option if healthy. Doubs found the endzone in weeks 1 and 3 scoring 18 DK points in the 2 games. I would run him in the Flex position. Jayden Reed priced at 5.6K has had a good role in this offense without Watson. 20 targets in the first 3 games and has a prop of 37.5 yards this game. If Watson is out Reed would be a cheaper Captain option for me. Dontayvion Wicks priced at 5K has 12 targets on the year and has 40+ yards in the last 2 games. Flex option as well for me in GPPs. Samori Toure is a solid punt option for large-field GPPs priced at $600. 3, 2, 3 targets in the 3 games to start the season.
Sam Laporta comes off the big game last week catching 8 of 11 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown. Laporta is priced at 8K and is a Captain/Flex option for me as his role keeps growing each week. Targets, Rec, and Yards have all increased each week. Laporta has a prop of 44.5 yards, which is the second highest next to ASB.
Luke Musgrave is another guy I want to be overweight on as tight ends have had great success vs. the Lions through 3 weeks as they have given up 15+ DK points to the position each week. Musgrave comes off a 6-catch 49-yard game and his snap count increased from 44 snaps to 68 last week. Musgrave also has solid props at 38.5 yards equal to Doubs and higher than Reed.
I want the Packers defense over the Lions tonight as they have 9 sacks and 2 INTs and Goff hasn’t been good on the road. Both defenses are priced under the kickers at 3.6K for GB and 4K for DET. The Packers defense is underpriced here and I will be overweight. Both kickers are fine here with a solid total of 46 points.
