MNF fantasy points projections to help you set your lineup

Need some last minute start/sit advice? Fantasy points projections can help, and we’ve got them for Week 6 Monday Night Football.

The Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football to close out Week 6. The Lions are a bit of a surprise to open the season, while the Packers have ridden a strong run game and stout defense to the top of the NFC North. This is a huge one for both teams following the Minnesota Vikings own win on Sunday.

Your fantasy football lineups are mostly settled, but you might have one or two remaining questions whose answers might be the difference between winning and losing. If you’re playing some DraftKings Showdown, we’ve got lineup strategy and you’ll have your lineup settled by kickoff.

However, if you’re in a traditional fantasy football league, there is less work to be done. If you were waiting for T.J. Hockenson news, the Lions rookie tight end appears set to play. Unfortunately, we already know that Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will be sidelined with a turf toe injury. Meanwhile, the Packers welcome back Jamaal Williams following a Week 4 concussion.

Matchups are key, but it helps to see what the analytics are saying about potential performances. Looking at ESPN fantasy projections for season-long leagues (1/2 PPR setting), Aaron Jones is viewed as likely to build on his big Week 5, while Kenny Golladay is viewed optimistically against the Packers solid pass defense.

I like the Lions chances tonight, in part because Matthew Stafford is playing some solid football. It should be a close one, and it could come down to whether the Packers or Lions defense has the bigger game. Regardless, here are Week 6 MNF projections to help you further improve your fantasy chances!
