Matthew Stafford Says He'll Be Ready For Offseason Program

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford (back), who missed the final eight games of the season with a back injury, said he currently feels really good physically and expects to be ready for the team's offseason program in March without any limitations. At the time of his injury in Week 9 against the Raiders, Stafford was completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns, five interceptions and a passer rating of 106.0. He was leading the NFL in 20-plus yard completions (41) and had a career-best yards-per-attempt average of 8.6. Back injuries to end the last two seasons might be worrisome for fantasy owners heading into the 2020 season, but Stafford's play before his injury in 2019 should make most confident that he'll be at least a low-end QB1 next season.

Lions Defensive Coordinator Steps Down

Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni stepped down on Thursday after coaching one of the worst defenses in 2019. The 70-year-old joined offensive line coach Jeff Davidson in stepping down. Six Detroit coaches, including special teams coordinator John Bonamego, were fired on Tuesday. Pasqualoni is resigning in order to be closer to his family. The Lions ranked No. 31 in yards allowed per game (400.4), No. 32 in passing yards allowed per game (284.4) and No. 21 in rushing yards allowed per game (115.9). They also had a league-worst 1.1 percent interception rate and sacked QBs on 4.6 percent of their dropbacks.

Danny Amendola Throws Touchdown Pass In Week 17 Loss

Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola had a disappointing game in the Lions Week 17 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Amendola caught just two balls for 16 scoreless yards on the day. He was able to slightly salvage his day with a 19-yard touchdown pass to quarterback David Blough. It has been a seesaw season for Amendola, who had to fight with Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones for targets for most of the season. If Amendola returns to Detroit next season, he will likely find himself in the exact same spot, assuming the Lions don't make any drastic changes on offense.

Kerryon Johnson Scores In Loss To Packers

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson ran 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Lions Week 17 loss to the Green Bay Packers. A decent ending to an otherwise unspectacular season for Johnson. The Lions finally decided to give him a workhorse role this season, but after getting injured for the second straight year, there is no guarantee that the Lions don't go out and acquire another back this offseason to take some of the load off. It will be a situation that needs to be monitored by fantasy owners heading into 2020.

David Blough Underwhelms in Week 17

Detroit Lions quarterback David Blough completed just 12 of his 29 pass attempts for 122 scoreless yards and an interception in the Lions Week 17 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The rookie quarterback was unable to win any of his five starts after being thrust into the starting role when both Matthew Stafford (back) and Jeff Driskel (hamstring) were lost for the season. No immediate decision has to be made regarding Blough's future, so the Lions are likely to wait until deep into the offseason before deciding whether he returns next season or not.
