Week 7: vs Detroit Lions

All QB vs DET

FBG says: Great matchup. Ryan Tannehill's shoulder injury thrust Brock Osweiler into the lineup last week, and the backup responded with a big stat line (380 yards and 3 touchdowns). But those numbers were largely inflated by the after-catch work of Albert Wilson, Danny Amendola, and company. Osweiler remains a deeply flawed passer, and the Dolphins don't want him testing defenses downfield too often. He'll continue to play the caretaker role, utilizing the screen and quick-slant games to try and move the ball. Surrounded by a higher-than-expected level of talent around him, Osweiler could conceivably dink and dunk his way to another solid line. It's just not very realistic to ask much more, which dings the upsides of deep-ball extraordinaire Kenny Stills. Look for the ultra-versatile Wilson to remain heavily involved, but with hard-to-project efficiency. Osweiler hasn't strung together decent back-to-back performances in years. In general, the Lions boast a stouter pass defense than the one Aaron Rodgers just gashed in San Francisco. Prior to Week 5, the Lions allowed just 198 yards per game. The unit is headlined by cornerback Darius Slay, who often flashes shutdown ability on the outside. The slot has been a problem at times - Slay himself struggled mightily when following Davante Adams there last week - but in all, it's a fairly prohibitive group. Free safety Glover Quin adds a ball-hawking element that routinely makes quarterbacks' jobs harder. This is a team that got an entire extra week to study this Miami passing attack coming off the bye should give the Dolphins a lot of problems this week.
