  • The Lions are the last remaining team in the league that has yet to call an offensive play while leading.
  • Detroit has allowed a gain of 20 or more yards once every 8.5 plays, the highest rate in the league.
  • The Lions are averaging 3.1 fewer yards per passing play than their opponent, the largest differential in the league.
  • Jared Goff has completed 25.8% (8-of-31) of his passes over 15 yards downfield, the lowest rate in the league.
  • Ja’Marr Chase leads the NFL with 61.7 PPR points on targets over 15 yards downfield. 

Trust = spike production for that player
Bust = down-week production for that player’s standards


Joe Burrow (TRUST): Burrow has shown a high floor to open the year, posting 17 or more fantasy points in four of his opening five games with multiple passing touchdowns in all five. Burrow was being evaluated for a throat contusion after last week’s game, but everything appears to be good to go on him being able to play Sunday. 

He will be playing indoors against a Detroit defense that is 31st in passing points allowed per attempt (0.59), 32nd in yards allowed per pass attempt (9.9 yards), and 32nd in yards allowed per completion (14.6 yards). Their one saving grace against the pass has been game script with their equally awful run defense as they have faced the league’s fewest amount of pass attempts (27.0 per game).
