Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Who needs turkey on Thanksgiving when you can feast on the Eagles? Philly gave up 45 points to Tampa Bay last week, this is just what the doctor ordered to get Stafford back on track and performing at a high level but be warned that even in what seem like positive matchups, Stafford can still lay down a stinker so we always proceed with caution.
Passsing: 250 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 8 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
The usually pass-happy gunslinger compiled his lowest attempt and passing yardage stats since 2010 (along with a disappointing touchdown total) to finish as the 15th-rated fantasy passer. The Lions pulled the reins in on Stafford while letting their dominant defense and Joique Bell-led rushing attack win games. Calvin Johnson also was slowed by nagging injuries for most of the season. A stronger receiver corps should help boost Stafford's production in 2015. The 27-year-old gunslinger will have a healthy Johnson paired up with the impressive Golden Tate, and Eric Ebron is a second-year leap candidate. Theo Riddick and rookie second-round pick Ameer Abdullah also are capable receivers. A Lions defense that lost some key players in free agency likely will struggle, so Stafford should find himself in some shootouts.

Passing: 5000 Yards, 43 TD, 15 INT.
Rushing: 80 Yards, 0 TD.

Detroit Lions Team Talk
Thank you O Lord for the white blind light, Jim Morrison
You know, I told you the Lions were over rated. Maybe some day you penis heads will get it that I am here to help. The only PM I got asked if I thought Young was due to break out. I said no. Two Geese, no sharks! You simple minded little twerp ...
Jahvid Best.... Will he or won't he?
Anyone have any news on Best? Will he make a return at some point this season? I've heard from some Week 8, but I doubt that. I'm in a deep league and was thinking about picking him up hopefully a week or two before he comes off the PUP list....
I am going to say 10-6...
Ocho worked out with Stafford and Calvin today
What would you all think about Ocho joining the lions? All his off-field shenanigans aside, I would have to believe that he would make an already potent offense pretty lethal. Thoughts?...
Hells YESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!
GO LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are a TON of faithful fans that have had your back through the bad,the ugly, and even worse than that over the years. Let's kick some tail in the playoffs and shut up the nay sayers. GO ...
