Bevell has been known for his power run offenses in the past, and many predict that he will implement his former scheme in Detroit.This means a lot of carries for second-year running back Kerryon Johnson and newly signed C.J. Anderson. More volume means more yards, which makes them valuable targets for your fantasy draft this summer. Danny Heifetz of The Ringer listed running back corps around the league that will make or break fantasy leagues in 2019, and listed Detroit alongside the Minnesota Vikings and Baltimore Ravens as backfields that fantasy players may want to keep an eye on as they build their big boards.Heifetz mentioned that:Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay appeared on The Pride Podcast Thursday, in his first interview since he decided to hold out of minicamp last week.While there may be a rift between former Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and Detroit, he is still active within the NFL. Johnson appeared at Atlanta Falcons mini camp today, per team reporter Kelsey Conway.CBS Sports’ Sean Wagner-McGough ranked every NFL division by the strength of its running backs. While one would expect the NFC North to rank highly on the list—as it features Johnson, Aaron Jones Barry Sanders Jersey White , Tarik Cohen and Dalvin Cook—Wagner-McGough is not very high in the division. He ranks the division seventh out of eight, citing consistency issues. He does mention the potential the division does have, though. Detroit traded tight end Michael Roberts to the New England Patriots on Thursday. The former fourth-round pick failed to make a sustained impact for the team, but per PFF Detroit Lions, he did have some incredible single game performances. Week 1 is in the rear-view mirror, and the Cincinnati Bengals are set to host the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night to kick off week 2.<em>Last Week: 8-7-1</em>Home teams shown in bold. Odds taken from Odds Shark.Baltimore (-1) vs. CincinnatiKeep an eye on AJ Green, who has averaged 99.3 receiving yards in his last seven games against the Ravens. In that time, has has caught six touchdowns.<em>Pick: Cincinnati (+1)</em>Atlanta (-6) vs. CarolinaMatt Ryan played pretty poorly against the Eagles on Opening Night, and the losses of Keanu Neil and Deion Jones are really going to hurt the Falcons long term. However Darius Slay Jersey , Atlanta & Ryan will bounce back this week in a fairly important early-season NFC South duel.<em>Pick: Atlanta (-6)</em>New Orleans (-9) vs. ClevelandI’m all about the bounce back narrative this week. New Orleans got embarrassed at home against an underdog last week. It won’t happen again.<em>Pick: New Orleans (-9)</em>Houston (-2) vs. TennesseeThe recovery process for Deshaun Watson off a torn ACL will definitely take some time, especially behind a poor offensive line. He looked pretty rusty and tentative against the Pats in Week 1.<em>Pick: Tennessee (+2)</em>Washington (-5.5) vs. IndianapolisAlex Smith looked solid last week in Arizona, and this is another favorable matchup for him as the Redskins look to start the season 2-0.<em>Pick: Washington (-5.5)</em>Pittsburgh (-4.5) vs. Kansas CityPatrick Mahomes looked fantastic against the Bolts in Carson last week. However, Big Ben is a totally different QB at home and should put up some numbers against the Chiefs‘ secondary.<em>Pick: Pittsburgh (-4.5)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-7) vs. BuffaloJosh Allen time in Buffalo!<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-7)</em>New York Jets (-3) vs. MiamiJets haven’t been a home favorite since December 5, 2016 against the Colts, per Odds Shark. The Lions get knocked down a peg in their home opener.<em>Pick: Miami (+3)</em>Green Bay (-1.5) vs. MinnesotaMan, I have a hard time betting against Aaron Rodgers after what he did last week. If him & Davante Adams (shoulder) were near 100%, I would probably go Packers. However, the Vikings have so much talent that I have trouble seeing a hobbled Rodgers scoring enough off them.<em>Pick: Minnesota (+1.5)</em>Philadelphia (-3) vs. Tampa BayIf the NFL season ended after Week 1 Sylvester Williams Jersey , Ryan Fitzpatrick would be NFL MVP. But it doesn’t.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-3)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-13) vs. ArizonaRams, off a short week, facing a team that got embarrassed a week earlier? Seems like the ingredients for a tight game.<em>Pick: Arizona (+13)</em>San Francisco (-6) vs. DetroitIf the Lions don’t at least keep this one close, the grumblings about Matt Patricia in Detroit will only continue to grow louder and louder.<em>Pick: Detroit (+6)</em>New England (EV) vs. JacksonvilleTo me it comes down to: Tom Brady or Blake Bortles? I’ll always take Brady.<em>Pick: New England (EV)</em>Denver (-6) vs. OaklandI don’t know why so many people wrote off the Broncos from AFC West contention. Case Keenum will limit turnovers on the offensive side & keep them in a lot of games this year.<em>Pick: Denver (-6)</em>Dallas (-3) vs. New York GiantsThis one should be low-scoring, and close.<em>Pick: New York Giants (+3)</em>Chicago (-3) vs. SeattleThe Bears surprised a whole lot of people with their performance in the 1st half last week, and Khalil Mack looked tremendous. If Trubisky can show improvement in year 2, they could continue surprise some folks.<em>Pick: Chicago (-3)</em>
