Jeff Driskel (hamstring) placed on the IR

Jeff Driskel (hamstring) was placed on the injured reserve Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel was active for Thursday’s game against the Bears, but wasn’t healthy enough to actually compete. Despite the losing record, the Lions have yet to place Matthew Stafford (back) on the injured reserve. David Blough will most likely be the starting quarterback for the rest of the year and can be picked up in two quarterback and super flex leagues. Kyle Slotter was signed from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Jeff Driskel (hamstring) still 'pretty sore'

Lions coach Matt Patricia says Jeff Driskel's hamstring is still "pretty sore".

Fantasy Impact

There's a chance Driskel doesn't suit up on Thanksgiving. David Blough would then be forced into action for the Lions, which would be a massive edge for Chicago's defense. We should know more about Driskel's status tomorrow.

Jeff Driskel throws three picks in loss

Jeff Driskel completed 20 of 33 pass attempts for 207 yards, one TD and three INTs, adding nine carries for 63 yards in the Lions’ 19-16 loss to the Redskins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel couldn’t move the ball Sunday, as he managed less than seven yards per attempt and tossed three picks to the lowly Redskins. He made up for the lackluster effort through the air at least slightly, with 63 rushing yards, though the performance as a whole was one to forget. Driskel still makes a solid deep-league option and can be played in 12-teamers given the right matchup.

Jeff Driskel tosses pair of TDs in loss

Jeff Driskel completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 209 yards, two TDs and no INTs, adding five carries for 51 yards and a rushing TD in the Lions’ 35-27 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel has been solid over the past two weeks (both starts), and it looks like he'll be Detroit's starter the rest of the season with Matthew Stafford dealing with a back injury. The Lions have some exploitable matchups on the horizon, making Driskel a fine pickup for owners in need of quarterback help.

Jeff Driskel posts respectable stat line in spot start

Jeff Driskel completed 27 of 46 pass attempts for 269 yards, one TD, and an INT, adding five carries for 37 yards in the Lions’ 20-13 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Driskel got the spot start in place of Matthew Stafford -- who is dealing with fractured bones in his back -- and played respectably in his stead. Stafford was reportedly ready to play through the injury but couldn't get cleared by the Lions' medical staff. With that in mind, Stafford could be back as early as next week, sending Driskel back to the bench.
