Detroit Lions D/ST can't hold on late

Detroit Lions D/ST came up with two fumble recoveries, an interception, and a sack in the Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions’ defense handled Aaron Rodgers and Co. effectively early on in the game, though the Packers stormed back, hanging 23 on Detroit and ultimately winning the game. A matchup against a quality Vikings defense in Week 7 will be a tall task for this defensive group.

Detroit Lions D/ST recover three fumbles in loss to Kansas City Chiefs

The Detroit Lions D/ST had an impressive Week 4 that saw them secure three of four forced fumbles, and prevent Patrick Mahomes from scoring a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions defensive unit was highly impressive in Week 4. They are the first team to prevent Patrick Mahomes from scoring a touchdown since he became the starter. The Lions three fumble recoveries on their four forced fumbles kept them above water from a fantasy output perspective. Despite their impressive play this season, they are a D/ST to stream out of your lineup when they return from their Week 5 bye to play the Packers in Green Bay.

Detroit Lions D/ST scores in win

Detroit Lions D/ST accounted for three sacks, two fumble recoveries, and a return TD in the Lions’ 27-24 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The D/ST came up big Sunday, accounting for two takeaways and a touchdown in the narrow victory. This unit should be avoided next week in a matchup with the deadly Kansas City Chiefs offense.

Detroit Lions D/ST has strong Week 2

The Detroit Lions defense managed to compile one sack, one interception and a fumble recovery against Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions held the Chargers to just 10 points and finished the week as the number six overall D/ST with nine fantasy points. They have tough tests for the next four straight weeks making them a defense to stream out of your lineups.

Detroit Lions DST holds Chargers to 10 points

The Detroit Lions DST held the Chargers to 10 points in Sunday’s 13-10 win.

Fantasy Impact

The unit also recorded a sack, a fumble recovery, and an interception. This defense has had a solid two weeks of production, but they are a fade in Weeks 3 and 4 against the potent offenses of Philadelphia and Kansas City.
