Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Detroit Lions are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but this is their first real test of the season and their secondary is not going to be able to cover the Packers wide receivers.

Rodgers showed that Week 1 against Seattle was a fluke. Making minced meat of the Jets defense in Week 2 he now gets to pit his offense against the Lions M.A.S.H. unit secondary. Expect another huge week.
If Brian Hoyer can look like solid against the Steelers, Newton will be a stud! He played well against the Lions in Week 2. Expect another solid game against Pittsburgh in Week 3.

Detroit has been very stingy against the run, so I don't anticipate much success for Lacy. Rodgers will be looking at a second consecutive solid week this week.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Pass rush on road is worrisome, but he should still be active in likely shootout.
At home and Pitt D not really the elite unit we're used to seeing, although Cam still getting barrings here.
