Strength of Schedule

The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
Traditionally, this has been a unit that has been able to get after the quarterback, and we expect this to also be the case in 2016. A tough opening week against a Colts offense that will be looking to re-establish itself, a middle of the road open in the opening game.
3 Sacks, 1 Ints, 0 Fumbles

Season Projections
Ryan Griffin of Detroit Sports Nation believes that the Lions could field a very good defense in 2016. As in top five in the entire National Football League good. 'I don't think the Lions are the best defense in the NFL,' Griffin wrote, 'but they could surprise a lot of people and crack the top five in the rankings this year. With impact players on each level of the defense, opposing offenses are going to have to work for every yard they can get. It's easy for fans to be skeptical about the Lions, as it's usually a safe bet. But if you're being truly honest with yourself this season, you'll throw out that lazy rhetoric and recognize this can be a good team with a potentially great defense.' The return of DeAndre Levy will help, and defensive end Ziggy Ansah is a stud, but we'll believe that the Lions are back to being the imposing defense we saw in 2014, well, when we see it.
