Detroit Lions hold the Bears to 16 points in loss

The Detroit Lions defense managed to collect one interception and one sack during Thursday's 16-14 loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

The strong stretch of play for the Lions defense continued on Thanksgiving. For the third consecutive game, the Lions held their opponents to 16 points or under. The defensive unit managed to sack Andy Dalton one time and picked him off another, but failed to convert on several dropped interceptions. In the right matchup, they are worth playing.

Detroit Lions hold the Steelers to 16 points on Sunday

Detroit Lions' defense recorded one pick and two fumble recoveries in route to a 16-16 tie with the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions' defense was extremely solid on Sunday holding the Steelers to just 16 points in a tie. They recorded one interception as well as two fumble recoveries. With the lack of true talent on that side of the ball, the Lions remain not fantasy-relevant outside of a punt DFS play.

Detroit Lions fails to record a stat Sunday vs Eagles

Detroit Lions fails to record a stat Sunday vs Eagles in blowout 43-6 loss

Fantasy Impact

It was a miserable day for the Lions defense. The Lions failed to record a single stat on the defensive side of the ball for the first time all season. The Lions D/ST in unrosterable in all formats.

Dan Campbell being hired as next head coach of Detroit Lions

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are expected to hire Saints’ Assistant HC/TEs coach Dan Campbell as their next head coach.

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.

Detroit Lions D/ST gives up 37 points in Week 17 loss

Detroit Lions D/ST racked up three sacks in the Lions’ 37-35 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The three sacks did little to mask the lack of forced turnovers and 37 points surrendered in the Week 17 loss. The Lions defense looks like a mess headed into 2021 and will need to make a lot of changes in order to turn things around in 2021.
