Week 13: at New Orleans Saints

All WR vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Matthew Stafford pulled off another fourth-quarter comeback on Thanksgiving, squeaking the Lions past the Vikings 16-13 with 23/40 for 232 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (with two sacks taken for -18 yards). Anquan Boldin led the team in receiving TDs, with nine for 7/69/1 receiving, while Golden Tate led the team in receiving yards (seven for 5/77/0). Marvin Jones led the team in targets with 11 and showed signs of life with 4/54/0 receiving - those three were the only receivers over 20 yards on the day. Eric Ebron disappointed fantasy owners with a lean one target for zero receptions last week. Matthew Stafford has not gone over 300 yards passing since Week Three, and has multiple (two) TD passes in one of his last five games played. The Lions' passing attack is in a lull entering Week 13. The Saints' pass defense is in the bottom 1/3 of the league, ranking 27th averaging 271.4 net yards allowed per game, with 17 passing scores surrendered vs. seven interceptions (tied for 19th in the NFL) and 22 sacks (tied for 20th) generated so far. Rookie Jared Goff had 20/32 for 178 net yards, three TDs and one interception thrown at New Orleans last week (three sacks taken for -36 yards), while two games ago Cam Newton and company were limited to 14/33 for 173 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks generated for -19 yards by the Saints. From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), New Orleans has averaged 21.2 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (15th in the NFL); and 22.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (17th); with 10.3 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (sixth-most). This is a good matchup between Detroit's passing attack and a pass defense that has improved from horrid in September to mediocre here in November/early December.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 12 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Roberts continues to get sprinkled into the offense on a minimum level and saw four targets in this game. He caught two passes for 19 yards with a long coming on a 14-yard out route for 14 yards near the end of the first half. Roberts did miss a huge opportunity and left a gigantic play on the field as he ran a slant towards the sideline and turned toward the middle of the field instead of continuing down the sideline. Stafford threw down the sideline and the ball fell incomplete, but it could have been a long touchdown were it not for the miscommunication.
