  Lions | Anthony Lynn let go    Mon Jan 10, 02:51 PM

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn was fired Monday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Lynn was relieved of his play-calling duties towards the end of the season, and the Lions offense responded with head coach Dan Campbell calling the plays. We'll see who the Lions bring in at OC, and then what kind of moves they make to upgrade the quarterback position.

  Lions | Detroit picks up Week 18 victory    Sun Jan 9, 05:02 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff went 21-for-30 for 238 yards and two touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers in Week 18. WR Tom Kennedy threw a 75-yard touchdown pass during the game and also caught two passes for 16 yards. RB Jamaal Williams rushed for 43 yards on 13 carries. RB D'Andre Swift rushed for 30 yards and one touchdown on seven carries and caught four passes for 16 yards. WR Amon-Ra St. Brown caught eight passes for 109 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets. WR Kalif Raymond caught four passes for 101 yards and one touchdown on five targets, while TE Brock Wright caught two passes for 51 yards and one touchdown on two targets.

Footballguys view: The Lions lost the #1 pick with this win, but there isn't an obvious and clear #1 pick this season and likely no quarterback worth that pick, so it isn't that costly, and the team has actually been very competitive since Dan Campbell took over playcalling. Goff's season has turned around since that happened, and St. Brown has turned into a fantasy stud. Things are finally looking up for the Lions, who will also have the Rams first round pick, which will be in the 20s or 30s.

  Lions | Amon-Ra St. Brown making a name for himself    Thu Jan 6, 10:43 AM

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown has 25 catches for 292 yards and three touchdowns over the last three weeks. He also added a rushing touchdown.

Footballguys view: Around the time Dan Campbell took over play-calling duties, St. Brown started to perform at a high level. Not many players are bright spots for the Lions, but the rookie St. Brown certainly is. He's in line to be drafted as a WR3 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2022.

  Lions | D'Andre Swift will play    Fri Dec 31, 11:26 AM

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) looks fresh and ready to go for Week 17, according to head coach Dan Campbell.

  Lions | Josh Reynolds could play    Fri Dec 31, 10:38 AM

Footballguys view: We'll see if Reynolds can play in Week 17. If he's out there, it will take some targets from rookie WR Amon-Ra St. Brown who has become a target hog with Reynolds and TE T.J. Hockenson out.
