2.) Jayden Reed vs. Detroit Lions

If you have a wide receiver from the Green Bay Packers on your fantasy team, it is sometimes hard to determine whether or not they are safe options to play. If you have started wideout Jayden Reed the last two weeks against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Chargers, you managed to luck out. Reed has scored over 19 points each in the last two weeks. In Week 10 against the Steelers, he caught all five of his targets for 84 yards and a touchdown. Last week against the Chargers, he had just 6 catches for 46 yards, but carried the ball 3 times on the ground for 46 yards and a rushing touchdown. 

The Lions and Packers faced off against each other in Week 4 in Green Bay, where Reed recorded 5 catches for 55 yards, putting him over the double digit point line. WIth this game being in Detroit, there is some risk as it is new territory for Reed but he will still get his looks from Jordan Love. With the injury to running back Aaron Jones, who was carted off the field last week and his status is unknown moving forward, Reed could run in motion more than he has, giving him more options to get the extra step on the ground or through the air.
