Lions vs. Falcons Week 7 Prediction
Fresh off their first win of the season, the 1-5 Falcons will look to make it two in a row on Sunday when they host the 2-3 Lions at 1:00 p.m. ET. Will Atlanta cover as a 2-point home favorite or will the Falcons once again stumble as a home favorite?

Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
Detroit Lions DFS Spin
Marvin Jones (knee) returned to Lions practice on Thursday, getting in a "limited" session. It puts Jones on track to suit up for Sunday's golden matchup with the Falcons, but his health and effectiveness will be in question. That's not good since even a healthy Jones has not been producing in fantasy. Even in this glorious spot, Jones will be a barely-there WR4.
Atlanta Falcons DFS Spin
Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday. After catching eight passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings last week, Jones missed Wednesday's practice in what may have been a veteran maintenance day. He's a WR1 option this week in what should be a high scoring game against a vulnerable Detroit defense.
Lions vs. Falcons Betting Prediction
The Lions are winless against the spread in their last five meetings with the Falcons and are just 3-10 against the number in their last 13 conference matchups. Detroit has failed to cover in five of its last six games as a road dog and is 2-7 at the betting window in its last nine games versus an opponent with a losing record. The Falcons, meanwhile, are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a losing record and have cashed in four of their last five games coming off a win.
