Lions D/ST disruptive in Week 18

The Lions D/ST turned in a disruptive performance Sunday, recording four sacks and forcing two turnovers (two interceptions) in a 30-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

The unit was able to make key stops when it mattered most despite allowing 448 total offensive yards, keyed by two Nick Mullens fourth-quarter interceptions. The secondary will need to do a better job of containing opposing passing offenses as they begin the postseason, with their opponent yet to be determined.

Lions D/ST solid in Week 17

The Lions D/ST forced one turnover (one interception) while also registering three sacks in a 20-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

The unit was unable to make stops in crucial situations despite a stout Dallas passing attack racking up 323 passing yards against a mismatched Detroit secondary, only falling due to a controversial officiating miscue on Lions offensive tackle Taylor Decker's would be successful two-point conversion that would have given them a 21-20 lead with less than a minute left. The unit remains a boom-or-bust option ahead of a Minnesota Vikings team starting their fourth different quarterback of the season in Week 18.

Lions D/ST forces four turnovers in Week 16 win

The Lions D/ST registered four sacks and forced four turnovers (four interceptions) in a 30-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

The unit was able to make disruptive plays when it mattered most despite allowing quarterback Nick Mullens to throw for 411 yards Sunday, forcing the signal-caller into four turnovers. The unit will be a risky play for fantasy managers against a high-scoring Dallas Cowboys offensive attack in Week 17.

Lions D/ST solid in Week 15 win

The Lions D/ST was solid Saturday night, recording two sacks and forcing one turnover in a 42-17 Week 15 win over the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

The unit was able to make consistent plays against an overmatched Denver offense Saturday night, allowing just 287 total offensive yards in a winning effort. The defense will look to replicate their performance in a Week 16 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings with an opportunity to clinch the NFC North on the line.

Lions D/ST struggles in Week 14 loss

The Lions D/ST failed to force a turnover while registering three sacks in a Week 14 28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact

The unit was unable to do much to slow down a Chicago offense Sunday, allowing touchdowns on the ground and through the air to go along with 336 total offensive yards in a losing effort. The defense will look for more success in a Week 15 home matchup against the Denver Broncos.
