The NFL closes out Week 6 with a big NFC North matchup. The Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football with both teams looking to stay in the top half of the division. The Packers are 4-1 coming off a road thumping of the Dallas Cowboys. The Lions are 2-1-1 coming off a bye week after a tough, close loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The injury report features a few notable names. The Packers will be without wide receiver Davante Adams due to turf toe, but they welcome back running back Jamaal Williams from a concussion. The Lions continue to be without defensive tackle Mike Daniels, but hope to welcome back rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson. He is questionable due to a pre-bye week concussion, but appears to be cleared through the protocol.
The Packers are four-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook, and the point total sits at 45. Green Bay was expected to contend for the division with Chicago, while Detroit was a question mark after a tough 2018. The Lions offense is looking solid in spite of some injuries, and their defense is looking better than most expected.
There will be plenty of fantasy implications in this late matchup. T.J. Hockenson is the only fantasy game-time decision, but there will be plenty of players swinging fantasy contests across the country.
