NFL Week 2 Regular Season

Detroit Lions DFS Spin

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (groin) is questionable for Week 2 against the Packers. Despite the Q tag, Swift was upgraded to full practice on Saturday and coach Dan Campbell has already said he will be out there at Lambeau Field. With the Lions' offense set to run through its backfield, both on the ground and as pass catchers, Swift remains a top-20 option even with Jamaal Williams mixing in for predictably heavy touches.

Green Bay Packers DFS Spin

Aaron Rodgers completed 15-of-28 pass attempts for 133 yards and two interceptions in the Packers' Week 1 loss to the Saints. Jordan Love replaced Rodgers with Green Bay down 38-3 in the fourth quarter. Rodgers was under pressure for much of the game and indecisive when he had time to operate in the pocket. He targeted Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling seven times each in pass-heavy negative game script. The swarming Saints defense made life miserable for Rodgers and the Packers offense, which didn't convert a single third down in the game's first three quarters. Regression looked ugly for the Packers in Week 1. It might look less ugly next week against a Detroit defense that was ripped by the 49ers on Sunday.

Cowboys vs. Bucs Betting Prediction

The Lions are 7-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games versus NFC opponents. They’re also 6-2 against the spread in their last eight Monday games and have covered in eight of their last 11 games played in the month of September. On the other side, the Packers are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games versus a team with a losing road record and have dropped four of their lats five games versus a team with a losing record.
