The Detroit Lions have placed quarterback Matthew Stafford on COVID-19 list meaning he will not play Week 9 vs Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Welp, fade all your Lions receivers. I guess this means Chase Daniels will get the start? Yikes. Marvin Jones falls out of WR2 territory for me but now I like D’Andre Swift and Adrian Peterson a bit more assuming this is going to be a ground and pound game.
