Jordan Love fakes fantasy production again

Jordan Love Headshot

QB Jordan Love and the Packers offense was abysmal for most of Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Love was under pressure throughout the game and rarely got into a rhythm. He headed into halftime with 50 yards, 0 TDs, and 1 INT on 6-of-13 passing. Love chucked it another 20 times in the second half, though, compiling 196 yards and a TD to a wide-open WR Christian Watson. Love added a nine-yard TD run on a QB draw to post another 20+ point fantasy outing. He's now topped 20 fantasy points in all four games to open the season, despite not playing particularly well. Love has completed just 56% of his passes at 6.8 yards per attempt. But he's thrown eight TDs and run for two more. That scoring rate will not hold, and Love will need to play much better in order to maintain this fantasy-scoring pace. He at least got WR Christian Watson and RB Aaron Jones back on Thursday night. But LT David Bakhtiari landed on IR with his knee trouble and has no timetable for a return. Love draws a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders before a Week 6 bye.
