The Detroit Lions make their annual trip to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers in Week 4 on Thursday Night Football. The Lions feature a high-powered offense with several players in the TNF DFS player pool with the ability to be high impact producers for NFL DFS lineups. Quarterback Jared Goff and wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown are sure to be one of the most popular NFL DFS player stacks on Thursday. Should you back the Lions' duo? Or should you pivot to the Green Bay side where Jordan Love, Aaron Jones, and Romeo Doubs all have high DFS upside?
Before making any NFL DFS picks for Lions vs. Packers on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS lineup advice, strategy and player stacks from SportsLine NFL daily Fantasy expert Jimmie Kaylor.
Kaylor is a NFL and DFS expert for SportsLine, who opened the 2022 NFL season by winning DraftKings' NFL Showdown Thursday Kickoff Millionaire contest. He edged out over 355,000 other entrants in the contest and also has multiple five-figure tournament wins on his DFS resume. Kaylor, who cashed big all season in 2022, has covered the NFL and college football for over a decade as a member of the Pro Football Writers of America, and his background as a former college and NFL player gives him a unique perspective when building his fantasy lineups and locking in his betting picks.
Kaylor hit on epic NFL DFS picks all season in 2022. He was all over Travis Kelce's four-touchdown performance against the Raiders on Monday Night Football, Kirk Cousins' 460-yard, four-TD performance on Thanksgiving Day, and T.J. Hockenson's 13 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15.
In the Week 2 Eagles vs. Vikings Thursday Night Football matchup Kaylor was all over Justin Jefferson (11-159), D'Andre Swift (175-1), DeVonta Smith (4-132-1), and T.J. Hockenson (7-66-2). Anyone who followed his picks cashed in big.
Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to Lions vs. Packers on Thursday Night Football Week 4 and just locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see his picks and analysis at SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Lions vs. Packers on TNF
One of Kaylor's favorite showdown NFL DFS picks for Thursday night is Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown. The 2022 Pro Bowl selection enters this matchup coming off consecutive 100-yard performances, and will face a Green Bay secondary that will likely be without All-Pro cornerback Jaire Alexander. St. Brown has been targeted 28 times in three games this season, and Kaylor expects that trend to continue against the Packers.
"Amon-Ra St. Brown will be the best player on the field on Thursday Night Football. He is a target machine in Detroit's offense and should thrive against an unproven Packers secondary. I'm expecting another double-digit target game which should yield another impressive stat line for St. Brown on TNF. St. Brown will definitely be one of my core plays on TNF," Kaylor told SportsLine.
Part of Kaylor's MNF DFS strategy also includes rostering Detroit running back Jahmyr Gibbs. David Montgomery is expected to return for Detroit, but Gibbs' skillset will make it difficult for the Lions to keep him off the field. With Montgomery sidelined, Gibbs saw 18 touches and posted 82 total yards in Detroit's Week 3 win over the Falcons.
For the season, Gibbs has posted 31 carries for 139 rushing yards and caught 10 passes for 59 yards on 13 targets. He has yet to find the end zone, but Kaylor expects that to change on Thursday Night Football. "I am expecting Gibbs to see at least 15 touches and score his first NFL touchdown on Thursday Night Football," Kaylor said. You can see the rest of Kaylor's NFL DFS picks here.
