Fantasy Analysis
Week 20 Projections

Season Projections
The 12th-year journeyman should hold off a preseason challenge from rookie sixth-round selection Jake Ruddock and operate as Matthew Stafford's backup for the third year in a row. Orlovsky's two 2015 mop-up appearances represent his first regular-season action in three years. Although Orlovsky has a strong arm, he has struggled mightily with accuracy over the course of his career (58.2 completion percentage). With help from a Calvin Johnson-less arsenal of weapons that includes Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, Eric Ebron, pass-catching specialist Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah, Orlovsky could manage the Detroit offense in Matthew Stafford's absence. However, Orlovsky would be hard to trust as a streaming option.

Passing: 600 Yards, 3 TD, 6 INT.
Rushing: 15 Yards, 0 TD.
