About Steve Janik - RotoBaller

25 - Big Baseball/Football Guy - There's not much that I don't find at least somewhat interesting.

Steve Janik - RotoBaller has written 6 articles so far, you can find them below.


As volatile as running backs are on the real-life gridiron, they’re equally as volatile for us fantasy owners. Injuries, suspensions, and contract holdouts have recently plagued some of the bigger names in the NFL, allowing lesser-known entities to step into the limelight. These “breakout” players are what makes fantasy so rewarding because these are the... Read More

Is there a better feeling in fantasy sports than drafting or claiming a guy that no one else even sniffs, but he pans out to be a valuable contributor to your roster? Aside from winning your league, finding that stud sleeper is what makes your countless hours of research and prep time well worth it.... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 20 of 32 for 266 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Green Bay Packers. This was one of Stafford's most complete games of the season, all missing his top target wide receiver Kenny Golladay. He instead targeted Brandon Powell and Andy Jones a combined 21... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught six of his 15 targets for 58 yards in the 27-9 loss to the Vikings on Sunday. This marks the second game this year that Golladay has garnered 15 targets and his fourth double-digit target game of the season. This kind of volume usually leads to insane fantasy... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick received just three carries for two yards, while also catching four passes for a measly seven yards. This was one of the worst games of the season for the pass-catching back but it doesn't help his case that the offense has been down right awful recently. He typically has... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Zach Zenner toted the ball eight times for 45 yards in Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He also caught two passes for 22 yards in the loss. Zenner has been very active since Kerryon Johnson got injured a few weeks back, and has been splitting carries with LeGarrette Blount.... Read More

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount took 11 carries for 29 yards and caught just two of four targets for negative five yards. He led the team in carries but it was Zach Zenner that made the most of his opportunities, rushing for 45 yards. Blount isn't a viable fantasy option due to the emergence... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 18 of 32 for 116 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Stafford was eventually replaced by backup Matt Cassel in the fourth quarter. His play as of late is indicative of how the Lions have played as a team and this loss added... Read More

The Detroit Lions defense/special teams surrendered just 14 points in a tough 14-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The Lions held the Josh Allen-led Bills to just 312 yards of total offense in the loss, but they weren't able to force any turnovers in the effort; something they have done at least once... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Levine Toilolo caught all four of his targets for 28 yards in the loss to Buffalo on Sunday. Toilolo has been the only tight end used in this offense recently and in turn has provided the most steady play from the position all season. He's now caught 12 passes for 144... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Brandon Powell caught all three of his targets for 11 yards, while also taking a carry for four yards in the 14-13 loss to the Bills on Sunday. This was the busiest game of Powell's young career, having only caught one career pass coming into the game. While his name as... Read More

Detroit Lion wide receiver TJ Jones caught one of three targets for just five yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. Jones was expected to be the direct beneficiary to Bruce Ellington (hamstring) missing the game but that was not the case. Three targets ties his season-high but he still has nothing worthwhile to show... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Andy Jones caught two passes for just nine yards but he scored his first career touchdown in the loss to Buffalo on Sunday. It's nice to see Matthew Stafford connecting with other receivers than Kenny Golladay but Jones isn't a game changer the Lions are looking for. It's impossible to trust... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught seven of eight targets for 146 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. This is the third game this season in which Golladay has had over 100 receiving yards; it was the first time since Week 11. Golladay has enjoyed decent success as the Lions WR1; however, the... Read More

Zach Zenner Scores In Week 15

Detroit Lions running back Zach Zenner took 10 carries for 45 yards, while also finding pay dirt in the loss to the Bills on Sunday. The score was Zenner's second on the season and the second in consecutive weeks. He also caught three passes in the game, but didn't net any positive yardage. The 27-year-old... Read More

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount took seven carries for just nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. This continues a trend downward for Blount, as both Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick have been receiving the bulk of the rushing work. The bruising back heavily relies on volume to produce, so on an offense... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick rushed for 47 yard on just eight carries, while also hauling in two passes for a paltry nine yards in the loss to the Bills on Sunday. Riddick has seen an increase in carries the past three games which typically would help increase his floor; however, it has taken... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 22 of 29 for 208 yards and a touchdown in the 14-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. While nothing special, this was a better day than the Week 14 offering from Stafford. The Lions offense is a mess due to injuries and the 30-year-old is dealing with... Read More

The Detroit Lions defense/special teams has the chance for a solid day on Sunday when they face off with the Buffalo Bills. Last week against Arizona, the Lions didn't allow a touchdown for the first time all season. In the victory, they also held the Cardinals to under 300 yards of offense. After starting off... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) is listed as "Out" for Sunday's game against the Bills, marking his fourth straight game missed. This will elevate LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick, and possibly Zach Zenner's status this week. Wide receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring) is also going to miss the Week 15 road matchup with Buffalo. Ellington... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Michael Roberts put up a goose egg in Week 14 against the Cardinals. This week against the Bills, Roberts will have his hands full as Buffalo has allowed just 41 receptions and four touchdowns to tight ends this season. The only way Roberts could find any relevance is if he scores... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Levine Toilolo has seen increased production the last two weeks, catching six passes for 116 yards, higher totals than the rest of his season combined. The Lions Week 15 opponent, the Buffalo Bills, have allowed the second fewest receptions to tight ends this year with 41. Combine a struggling offense and... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Andy Jones caught his second pass of the season last week for just five yards. This week, it is not looking like Bruce Ellington will be able to suit up against the Bills, so Jones has a chance to be more involved in a struggling Lions offense. Even with more chances,... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver TJ Jones has been severely disappointing in the absence of Marvin Jones. Over his last seven games, he has just seven receptions for 93 yards and no scores. However, with Bruce Ellington (hamstring) not practicing so far this week, it means that Jones very well could become the Lions' WR2 this... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught just two passes for five yards in last week's win over the Cardinals. It was a very pedestrian game for the second-year man, and one of his worst games of the season. This week against the Bills, Golladay is fighting for targets with TJ Jones, Andy Jones, and... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Zach Zenner garnered a season high 12 carries for 54 yards, while scoring his first touchdown of the season last week against the Cardinals. Before Week 14, Zenner had only registered four carries for 28 yards, so it was interesting to see a big jump in workload. This week against the... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick has been serviceable in the absence of Kerryon Johnson, catching 14 passes for 104 yards, while rushing for another 72 yards in three games. This week against the Bills, Riddick has a chance to see even more work in the passing game with Bruce Ellington (hamstring) not practicing so... Read More

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount hit a roadblock last week, and that was Zach Zenner, his own teammate. Zenner scored Detroit's only offensive touchdown, while also taking 12 carries away from Blount. However, the bruiser has been solid ever since rookie Kerryon Johnson got injured, rushing for 182 yards and two touchdowns over the... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had one of the least productive games of his 10-year career last week against the Cardinals, throwing for just 101 yards and no touchdowns. Despite the Lions winning 17-3, Stafford left much to be desired, and the situation doesn't get better this week on the road against the Bills. The... Read More

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater hit his only field-goal attempt while also knocking two extra points in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Prater has now made 15 straight field goals dating back to Week 7. Unfortunately for Prater, he hasn't received many opportunities recently because the Lions offense has been struggling. Either way, he's been... Read More
