You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you see the love of your life? It's also a similar feeling that I get when riding on the tilt-a-whirl.
Anyway, I have those kinds of feelings I have when thinking about the Lions and the Packers. You know how it is…head to Spotify and crank Chicago love songs.
Matthew Stafford will torch the 28th ranked pass defense for 340 yards and three touchdowns.
If he is upright and walking, I always love Reggie Bush. He should total around 130 combo yards and score. In pro wrasslin' terms, Joique Bell has become the Marty Jannetty of the tag team duo. Bush gets Shawn Michaels because he is more charismatic, but Bell has become a viable start.
Calvin Johnson is must see TV and his owners will be dialed in to watch megatron transform into 120 yards and a couple of scores. Ryan Broyles is a solid WR3 or flex option this week. Brandon Pettigrew should be on your bench unless you have no other choice.
David Akers is always a solid choice and he's our #2 kicker this week. The Lions defense will be like the girlfriend you can't get over but need to forget about…at least this week.
Aaron Rodgers is always a start, and he should fill up the stat sheet with over 400 yards and 3-4 touchdowns.
I like Eddie Lacy in his return this week as well. I think he'll score and eclipse 70 yards in the Packers win.
Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb will both go over 100 yards and score. James Jones and Jermichael Finley are decent plays in a game headed for a shootout.
Start Mason Crosby but be ready for the obligatory 35 yard shank. Find another defense this week.
