Marvin Jones Has Mediocre Week 1

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones caught four of four targets for 56 yards, including a 23-yard catch on Sunday afternoon against the Arizona Cardinals. Jones is certainly capable of much more, but with the competition from Kenny Golladay, Danny Amendola and T.J. Hockensen, there just won't be enough consistent fantasy production from him. For...

Kenny Golladay Scores In Week 1

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was held to just four receptions for 42 yards but was able to snag a touchdown during the Lions Week 1 tie against the Arizona Cardinals.

Danny Amendola Shines With New Team

Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola was excellent in his first game as a Lion. Amendola finished Sunday's game with seven receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals.

Matt Prater Elite In Week 1

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater went 2-for-2 on field goals, including a 55-yarder, and hit all three of his extra points during Sunday's tie against the Arizona Cardinals. There is no doubt that Prater is one of the best real-life and fantasy producing kickers in the league. Prater can be played in all formats and... Read More

Lions Defense Lit Up In Fourth Quarter

The Lions Defense held strong against the Arizona Cardinals offense for three quarters and only six points but were lit up for 18 points in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals have a young and talented offense that just seemed to click in the fourth quarter, which makes the Lions defense outlook not as grim as... Read More

T.J. Hockenson Lives Up To Early Hype

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson was huge in his first NFL game on Sunday afternoon against the Arizona Cardinals. Hockenson ended the game with six receptions on nine targets for 131 yards and a touchdown. In training camp and preseason, Hockenson was spoken highly of his pass catching ability by the Lions coaching staff... Read More

Kerryon Johnson Quiet In Week 1

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson ran just 16 times for 49 yards with two catches for 16 yards. Johnson touched the ball 18 times, which isn't terrible, but he was unable to make anything big of his opportunities. Of course, the expectations for Johnson were high in this weak defensive matchup against the Cardinals... Read More

Matthew Stafford Excellent In Week 1 Tie

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford went 27-for-45 for 385 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday afternoon during the Lions Week 1 tie against the Arizona Cardinals. Stafford was able to spread the ball very well, finding eight different receivers over the course of the game, helping him finish with a 110 passer rating. The Arizona... Read More

Marvin Jones A Flex Option For Week 1

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has not gained much attention this offseason but is still a critical piece of the Lions offense and should see numerous targets per game. For Week 1, the Lions will be facing a weak Cardinals Defense that is missing two cornerbacks in Patrick Peterson and Robert Alford. Jones certainly... Read More

Lions Defense A Below-Average Play For Week 1

The Lions Defense is a below-average play for Week 1 of the regular season against the Arizona Cardinals. The Lions defense finished just about league average in defensive ranking last season and this year will likely be about the same. For Week 1 against the Cardinals, it may be best to just avoid rostering them... Read More

Matt Prater An Excellent Week 1 Start

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater has proven that he is an elite NFL kicker and will look to continue his productive ways in 2019. He has already hit from 61 yards this preseason, so the Lions will not be afraid of throwing him out there for multiple 50-plus yard attempts per game if needed. Prater... Read More

T.J. Hockenson's Role For Sunday Still Unknown

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson will look to start his rookie season on the right foot this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Hockenson is second on the tight end depth chart, behind Jesse James, but has proven that he is an excellent pass-catch so could find himself on the field quite a bit. Hockenson... Read More

C.J. Anderson A Low-End Option

Detroit Lions running back C.J. Anderson will likely see around 10 touches in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. From a fantasy perspective, 10 touches is just not enough and he will only be valuable if he scores a touchdown, which is not very likely. Anderson will back up Kerryon Johnson all season as long...

Kenny Golladay A Solid WR2 Option

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay will look to start the 2019 season on the right foot with a solid performance against the Arizona Cardinals. Golladay certainly has WR1 potential this season but it is still a question on how much Stafford will look his way. Regardless, the 2018 Cardinals Defense was well below league... Read More

Kerryon Johnson Primed For Excellent Week 1

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson is healthy and primed for a big Week 1 performance against a Cardinals Defense that let up 154.9 rushing yards per game last season, which ranked last (32nd) in the NFL. The Lions have mentioned that they would like to run the ball more, and Week 1 will be... Read More

Matthew Stafford A QB2 Option For Week 1

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford draws a decent matchup in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals Defense allowed a mid-of-the-road 205 passing yards per game last year.

T.J. Hockenson Ready To Earn Targets

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson has already proved himself as a worthy first round draft pick through training camp and preseason. Hockenson and Stafford already seem to be on the same page and if that can continue, the young tight end could be in for a sneakily productive season. In most drafts, Hockenson will... Read More

Kenny Golladay Ready For WR1 Role

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has stated that he is ready to be the WR1 on the Lions and that he has the potential of being a 100-catch receiver. There is no doubt that Golladay has the talent and desire to do just that. In most drafts, Golladay is going in the fourth to... Read More

Matthew Stafford Ready For Week 1

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is healthy and ready for Week 1. Stafford's fantasy value has been similar the last couple of years, and will be the same this year: he's a solid real-life quarterback but isn't an excellent fantasy producer. He'll rack up some yards, a touchdown or two, and limit turnovers but likely... Read More

Kerryon Johnson Primed For Solid Season

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson is healthy and primed for a solid season this year; the young running back has the potential of being a top-10 fantasy producer this year.

Lions Defense Likely To Be League Average

The Detroit Lions Defense will go into the 2019 season as a unit that is nothing special but also as a unit that likely won't get completely demolished. The Lions are deep on the defensive front and have moved some players around in the secondary to really tighten coverage. The Lions defense finished the 2018... Read More

Mark Thompson Makes Case For Roster Spot

Detroit Lions running back Mark Thompson ran 11 times for 35 yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in Week 4 of the preseason against the Cleveland Browns. Thompson has had a solid preseason, but unfortunately the Lions running back depth chart may not have room for him. Thompson is a talented, big back... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Tom Savage played the entire first half of the Lions preseason finale against the Browns on Thursday night but was only able to complete five of nine passes for 33 yards.

Detroit Lions quarterback Josh Johnson went 9-for-15 for 157 yards and a touchdown on Thursday night during the Lions preseason finale against the Cleveland Browns.
