Lions Rushing offense

Neutral matchup vs. the Broncos defense.

The snakebitten Lions couldn’t be happier to have Kerryon Johnson (likely) back from injured reserve. The team has been devastated by various backfield injuries, forcing the likes of Ty Johnson, J.D. McKissick, and even practice-squadder Wes Hills into far more action than expected. But Johnson is practicing in full and likely to suit up Sunday, and he’ll probably step into the lead role immediately. Johnson hasn’t been efficient this season, averaging 3.3 yards per rush in his 6 games, but he’s certainly an upgrade on last week’s rotation (26 yards on 13 attempts). He’ll form some degree of a tandem with Bo Scarbrough, who’s been serviceable in a big-back role with 301 yards (4.2 per carry) over his 4 games. These two carry little fantasy value in a timeshare, but there’s always the possibility one of them stakes claim to 80% of the opportunity this week. That would provide at least a little utility, albeit with limited upside in this shaky Lions offense.

The Denver run defense is one of football’s most up-and-down units, difficult to project from week to week. And of late, it’s been run over fairly consistently. Opposing backs have averaged a solid 4.4 yards per rush over the past 4 weeks, and 111 a game. That’s allowed Devin Singletary (21 for 106), Melvin Gordon (20 for 99), and Carlos Hyde (14 for 73) to post strong days, with Kansas City’s Darwin Thompson (8 for 38) finding part-time success last Sunday as well. It all makes sense, considering the injury woes that have attacked this unit. Run-stuffing linemen Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis, and Dre’mont Jones have gone down in recent weeks, pushing a batch of reserves into the rotation. Behind them, A.J. Johnson has been strong at inside linebacker, but veteran Todd Davis remains merely a playable body next to him. And it doesn’t help that strong safety Kareem Jackson was just lost for the final two weeks to suspension. All in all, this unit is essentially just playing out the string. If the Detroit ground game was more dependable, it would offer sneaky fantasy value in this underrated matchup.

Lions Passing offense

Tough matchup vs. the Broncos defense.

Matthew Stafford was finally placed on injured reserve this week, serving as the white flag for the Lions’ 2019 season. It cements third-stringer David Blough under center to close things out, and he’s been subpar in three straight losses. In last week’s juicy matchup with the Buccaneers, Blough went just 24 of 43 for 260 yards - mostly fueled by catch-up mode - and 2 interceptions. His late pick-six was a back-breaker, and it’s fair to wonder how much his presence dings top wideout Kenny Golladay’s value. Golladay is a born playmaker, and he’s caught a pair of touchdowns from Blough, but was neutralized (3 for 44) by the Buccaneers. Marvin Jones is also on injured reserve and has been replaced with Chris Lacy, but the downgrade is enormous. Only Golladay and slot man Danny Amendola, who posted 102 yards last week as Blough’s security blanket, are usable for fantasy purposes. And even so, their ceilings are definitely capped in this low-impact attack.

The Broncos have made for a rough pass-defense matchup for years, and 2019 has been no exception. They’re allowing the league’s 10th-fewest net yards a game, with only 17 touchdowns through 14 games, and only 6 opposing passers have topped 250 in a game. Last week’s hiccup against Patrick Mahomes (27 of 34 for 340 yards and 2 scores) can be generally excused, considering the competition - and the fact that this group hounded Deshaun Watson so badly the prior week. This unit isn’t impenetrable, as seen by Mahomes last week and by Kirk Cousins’ dynamite Week 11 (29 of 35 for 319 and 2). Top cornerback Chris Harris has struggled in recent weeks, dinging the Broncos’ biggest strength, and playmaking safety Kareem Jackson was just lost to suspension for the rest of the season. But overall, it’s fair to give Harris & Company the benefit of the doubt - especially against David Blough and the Lions.

Broncos Rushing offense

Neutral matchup vs. the Lions defense.

The Broncos seem to have configured their backfield the way they like it - Phillip Lindsay as the clear lead back, with the limited Royce Freeman providing breathers here and there. But the pair hasn’t combined for 100+ yards since Week 9, averaging just 3.7 per rush along the way. Lindsay is a gifted runner, but he can only bounce so many runs out of traffic and into space. The Denver line has struggled throughout the year, currently ranked 26th by Footballguys’ Matt Bitonti, with a C- run-blocking grade. The good news is that Lindsay’s volume looks safe; last week’s seven rushes were a byproduct of the Chiefs’ big halftime lead. That gives him a decent week-to-week rushing floor, having topped 50 yards in 10 of his 14 games, even if his ceiling remains capped by the Broncos’ neophyte offense. For his part, Freeman looks like nothing more than a change-of-pace guy. He hasn’t posted more than 8 carries or 40 yards in a game since Week 8, and he’s even lost short-yardage work to the small but lightning-quick Lindsay.

The Lions have improved noticeably on run defense down the 2019 stretch, at least from an efficiency standpoint. They now sit ninth league-wide on a per-carry basis, giving up just 4.0 yards on average, and haven’t allowed an opposing runner to top 75 yards since Week 9. Linebacker Jarrad Davis was put on injured reserve this week, but that might be addition by subtraction; Davis has been the weak link in this unit for quite some time. They’re still strong up front, where tackle Damon Harrison papers over a lot of issues as a space-eating force. Still, in general, the 3-10-1 Lions tend to trail in games and face a ton of rushing volume. That impressive per-rush mark doesn’t mean nearly as much when opponents are pounding the ball 28 times per game. As a result, several backs have been able to post fantasy-relevant lines despite tough sledding on the ground. Game flow tends to determine a lot in this matchup, so if the Broncos can establish a lead Sunday, they’ll project to decent success.

Broncos Passing offense

Great matchup vs. the Lions defense.

Rookie quarterback Drew Lock has certainly flashed NFL tools over his three starts. But overall, he’s one of the rawest of the league’s current starters, posting an anemic 4.8 yards per attempt in his debut and just 5.2 last Sunday. Those were sandwiched around a great performance in Houston (22 of 27 for 309 yards and 3 scores, with a pick), but on the whole, he’s been ineffective. Thankfully, it hasn’t been bad enough to hold back top wideout Courtland Sutton. The big-play dynamo continues to draw attention (22 targets over Lock’s 3 starts) and produce (14.4 yards per catch, with 2 touchdowns) alongside his young quarterback. Surprisingly, the only time hasn’t produced much was in Lock’s huge Week 14. Lock spread the ball around well in that game, with rookie tight end Noah Fant (4 for 113 and 1) the big beneficiary. In general, Sutton has been leaned on heavily by all Denver passers, routinely winning one-on-matchups down the field. Fant continues to impress as a splash-play machine, though his usage varies, and no one else has developed into a fantasy contributor. Both are weekly fantasy considerations, though there’s no further value in this attack. It’s hard to project the Broncos to take much advantage of a shaky Lions secondary this weekend.

The Detroit defense remains one of fantasy’s most targetable matchups against the pass. Ten of their 14 opponents have registered 280+ yards through the air, and only 4 teams have given up more touchdowns (30). They’ve already allowed 80+ yards to a stunning 14 different receivers, from stars like Chris Godwin and Stefon Diggs to the likes of Breshad Perriman, Anthony Miller, and Randall Cobb. Last week was especially egregious: with Mike Evans on the shelf, Jameis Winston still racked up 458 and 4 touchdowns in the Buccaneers’ win. Perriman and Godwin combined for 234 and 3 of those scores themselves, highlighting the Lions’ major issues in downfield coverage. Top cornerback Darius Slay has had a down year by his standards, while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin have been routinely picked apart by opposing receivers. And with little help from a pass rush that ranks 27th league-wide in pressure rate and sacks, there’s a ton of pressure on them to hold that shaky coverage. The Denver passing game looks scattershot right now, but boasts real upside with Courtland Sutton working his way through this shellshocked secondary.
