CBSSports.com has fantasy football projections for all of the major positions, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look and what they're predicting Lions players to do this upcoming season. In addition to the stats, there is a "fantasy points" number, but that really only means something in the context of the table ranking all of the players. If you want to check that out, go here.
