Detroit Lions edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson has a favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5, in which he will attempt to record multiple sacks for the third straight game. The Panthers have allowed pressure on 28% of their passing plays, the sixth-highest rate, and the Lions have created pressure on 34% of pass rushes, tied for the seventh-highest rate. The Lions' pass rush has ramped it up in the past two weeks, as Hutchinson, Charles Harris, and Alim McNeill have combined for seven sacks. Hutchinson himself has recorded all 3.5 of his sacks in Weeks 3 and 4 and four of his seven QB hits. This week, he has a good shot to add to those numbers and is a quality start for IDP fantasy football.

Detroit Lions defensive end Aidan Hutchinson (ankle, illness) returned to practice on Wednesday. "I was hit hard a couple days ago," said Hutchinson, who has been out because of an ankle injury while also battling an illness. It's certainly a positive update, considering the 23-year-old finished his rookie campaign by logging 52 total tackles and an impressive 9.5 sacks. The Lions need him to stay healthy, especially since he's expected to be even more productive in 2023-24.
