N.Y. Jets (+6.5) at Detroit, 45.0 o/u – Monday, 7:10 p.m. EDT
The Story: The Jets have handed the keys to Sam Darnold, and the third overall pick in this year's draft will get to make his debut in prime time. The organization hasn't exactly surrounded him with tremendous talent, but the team doesn't have the worst collection of skill players in the league either, though the mediocre-at-best offensive line could make it tough for Darnold to gel with his receivers, especially deep threat Robby Anderson. Matthew Stafford likely will have to carry the load again for the Lions, though there are the makings of a useful running game with journeyman jackhammer LeGarrette Blount joining second-round pick Kerryon Johnson in the backfield.
• NYJ injuries: WR Jermaine Kearse (questionable, abdomen)
• DET injuries: none
• NYJ DFS chalk: none
• DET DFS chalk: Stafford (NYJ tied for 29th in TD passes allowed in 2017 with 30)
• NYJ DFS tournament plays: Isaiah Crowell (DET 31st in rushing TDs allowed in 2017 with 18)
• DET DFS tournament plays: Theo Riddick (NYJ 26th in passing-game DVOA vs. RB in 2017)
• Weather forecast: dome
The Scoop: Crowell manages 50 yards and a score. Darnold struggles in his debut, throwing for less than 200 yards and getting picked off twice. Johnson leads the Lions backfield with 70 combined yards. Stafford throws for 280 yards and three TDs, hitting Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Riddick.
