Fantasy Impact:

Campbell is known for his leadership abilities, which will be needed after Detroit's Matt Patricia era. He isn't considered one of the exciting, up-and-coming offensive or defensive coordinators that are in positions for other jobs. Still, a culture change is the biggest need for the Lions right now. The next order of business will be determining what to do with Matthew Stafford's mid-30s years.
