Detroit @ Jacksonville
Team Totals: Lions 28.75, Jaguars 25.25
Fresh off their Week 5 bye, the Lions visit a Jaguars team that has coughed up 30-plus points in four straight weeks and is nursing injuries to critical defenders EDGE Josh Allen (knee), top CB C.J. Henderson (shoulder), MLB Myles Jack (ankle), slot CB D.J. Hayden (hamstring, I.R.), and SLB Leon Jacobs (ACL, I.R.). As Detroit’s early open date bodes well for previously hamstrung Kenny Golladay, Matthew Stafford is a low-end QB1 play with upside here. All told, quarterbacks are 122-of-161 passing (75.6%) for 1,421 yards (8.83 YPA) and an 11:5 TD-to-INT ratio against Jacksonville. The Jags are averaging 314.5 passing yards allowed over the last month. … Jacksonville was trucked by Cincinnati and Houston’s otherwise struggling backfields for a combined 47/274/2 (5.83 YPC) rushing line in Weeks 4-5, while only eight teams have permitted more receptions to running backs (31). As positive script should work in his favor with Detroit favored by 3.5 points, Adrian Peterson is RB2/flex playable in season-long leagues with his usual touchdown-dependency caveat.
