Week 12: at Washington Redskins

All WR vs WAS

FBG says: Good matchup. The Detroit Lions' passing attack finished the first half of the 2019 campaign as one of the league's most efficient units in the NFL; however, after Matthew Stafford went down with a back injury, the passing attack has tailed off with Jeff Driskel under center. With Stafford at the helm, the Lions' passing game could sustain two top-end wide receivers, with both Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, Jr. posting impressive numbers through the first eight games of the season. With Driskel leading the offense, both receivers have seen a significant decrease in weekly volume and production. Driskel prefers to spread the ball around the offense, including players like Danny Amendola and T.J. Hockenson in the game more frequently, which diminishes the value of all Detroit pass-catchers moving forward. Washington's run-heavy offense, regardless of game script, coupled with a lot of favorable run-heavy game scripts for their opposition, has led to the Redskins facing an extremely low number of pass attempts this season. However, when teams have elected to throw the ball on them, Washington's defense has provided little resistance, allowing 7.0 adjusted yards per attempt, the 8th-worst mark in the league. Washington's pass rush is an extremely weak unit, as Matt Ioannidis leads the way with only 4.5 sacks so far in 2019. Elsewhere, specifically in the secondary, the Redskins' defense is littered with underperforming or aging stars. Josh Norman, whose 32nd birthday is right around the corner, is in the midst of what is undoubtedly his worst professional season since 2013. At safety, Washington's record offseason signing, Landon Collins, has disappointed against the pass this season, providing little coverage behind a struggling Norman. Quinton Dunbar has been the lone bright spot on Washington's defense this season. Opposite Norman, Dunbar has locked down opposing offenses' left side on a weekly basis this year. Through his 8 games in 2019, Quinton Dunbar leads the Redskins with 3 interceptions, which ranks 5th in the entire NFL. In Week 12, the Redskins continue to face one of the league's weakest slates of passing attacks, as they play host to the Detroit Lions, who will be led by their backup quarterback, Jeff Driskel. In this battle between a weak passing attack and an equally weak pass defense, neither side holds a clear advantage over the other.
