Week 2 against the Panthers looked like a preseason game with several penalties, fumbles and even an interception. Look for Stafford and his crew to rebound in this important inner-division game against the Panthers.
Our early week game is the Falcons vs. Buccaneers. Ryan has been playing extremely well in 2014, continuing the momentum that he had put together in 2013. There is one difference though. He has receivers! Even against a tough Tampa Bay defense Ryan should do just fine.

At home vs weak Pack D, gotta love it.
Bucs D is solid and he looked awful last week. He's back at home and Jake Matthews should return, though.
  
Derek Lofland

The Packers are just 20th against fantasy wide receivers, the Packers defense is going to have a tough time stopping all the weapons on the Lions offense.
The Buccaneers are eighth against fantasy quarterbacks, but Ryan and the Falcons tend to play big at home and the Buccaneers have faced Panthers QB Derek Anderson and Rams QB Austin Davis.
