Detroit Lions 2019 Season Recap

Dale Money | January 9th, 2020 

The Detroit Lions started the season off with plenty of promise, starting out the season 2-1-1. That one loss being a 34-30 nail biter against the Kansas City Chiefs, in which Matthew Stafford would put together a touchdown drive to push Detroit ahead with two minutes to left. Chiefs running back Darrell Williams would take back the lead for the last time, with 23 seconds left to spare.

Givanni Damico | December 8th, 2019

Welcome to the GPP/Tournament Plays article for Week 14. I’m filling in for Joey again, but you can check out his cash games article. It is important to note that players mentioned for cash games can absolutely be used in GPP lineups as well, but you may want to be contrarian and break the chalk. Let’s get into it.

NFL DFS – GPP Plays for Week 12

Joey Ricotta | November 24th, 2019 

Welcome to the GPP/Tournament Plays article for Week 12. Let’s start by saying, any picks used or mentioned for cash games can be played in tournaments. I think that’s an important thing to know and can sometimes get confused whenever the two are mentioned separately. For that reason, I’ve tried to avoid mentioning my cash game plays for this article.

Detroit Lions Week 9 Recap- Gruden, Carr Raid Lions

Tom Greene | November 4th, 2019

The Lions traveled to Oakland in their last season at the Colosseum. The plan was to use an Air-Raid offense (like Arizona’s) to sink the Raiders’ ship in the Black Hole for one last time. Instead, Jon Gruden utilized Derek Carr to do exactly what Matthew Stafford was supposed to do- raid the secondary and win the game. Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 8 Recap: Giant Victory Keeps Lions on the Prowl

Tom Greene | October 28th, 2019 

At 2-3-1, division and/or playoff hopes seem far-fetched. Not many teams, if any, come back from 2-5 (or 2-4-1) to play meaningful football in January. But, .500 teams after week eight still have a chance, and the Lions had a chance to get back into the race with that record.

Detroit Lions Week 7 Recap- Woof.

If we could describe this 42-30 loss to Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings in one word, the word in the title would describe it best. Woof.

Detroit Lions Week 4 Recap- Chiefs Outduel Lions

Tom Greene | September 30th, 2019 

Ah yes, it was a duel of top-tier QBs in Detroit this afternoon. Matthew Stafford took on Patrick Mahomes in a battle that Lions fans won’t forget, but may want to. A day that looked promising early, and even late, turned for the worse as Darrel Williams crossed the goal line to seal the deal for the Chiefs. Continue reading

2019 Fantasy Football Week Four: Starts, Sits, and Sleepers

Joshua Abbe, Mason Thompson, Givanni Damico | September 27th, 2019 

Well here’s to hoping you didn’t lose Saquon Barkley, but if you did don’t feel defeated yet. You aren’t the only one and some of our writers did as well. It’s a painful experience as if you were hurt alongside him, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Now you get to test your management skills till he returns and as the season goes along start to make trades and waiver pickups to stay afloat till Barkley, Tyreek Hill, Drew Brees, A.J. Green, and other key players return.

The Walsh Way – Week One NFL DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | September 7th, 2019

First, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Kevin Walsh, and I am from Pittsburgh, PA. I have been playing DFS since DraftStreet still existed. This is my first season writing for The Scorecrow, and this is my first tournament rundown. I have written about DFS before, so hopefully, that shouldn’t be too much of an issue. I am a huge football and hockey fan, and I am always so engulfed in fantasy sports from September until January. I plan to give you a peek inside what I have going on in my head and hopefully lead you to some DFS success (as well as myself, of course), but enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff.

Detroit Lions 53-Man Roster Breakdown/Preview

Tom Greene | September 7th, 2019

The Detroit Lions are on the prowl. In Matt Patricia‘s second season as Head Coach, the squad is hoping to improve on their 6-10 record from last season. In their way stands a host of foes. Kyler Murray, Kirk Cousins, Derek Carr, and Aaron Rodgers, just to name a few. To take down these men and take on the challenge of winning the NFC North, you must have a sound 53-man roster. 6-10 tells me there’s a lot of work to do, and I’m sure it says the same to my fellow readers. However, let’s become familiar with the roster that will be with us for this 2019 season.

Matt Patricia Looks To Right The Ship In Detroit

Dale Money | February 10th, 2019

The Detroit Lions ended the season with a dominating 31-0 win over arch-rival Green Bay to finish 6-10, this was the team’s worst season since 2012. With a second season under head coach Matt Patricia coming up, we should expect multiple changes this offseason as he continues to shape the roster to fit his scheme.

Eating A Mahomes Size Helping Of Crow

Matt Woolsey | October 31st, 2018

When you decide you are going to become a fantasy football analysis it is fun when you get to celebrate your takes. For example, it has been well documented that I prefer Adam Thielen over Stefon Diggs before the season started.

Detroit Lions: 2018 Season Preview

Robby Messer | August 26th, 2018

With the preseason well underway and the opening kickoff not far away, we continue to take a look at teams in the NFC, which is always competitive. But after a bizarre 2017 (see Case Keenum leading the Vikings almost to the Super Bowl), teams may return to playing more according to their mean, which might not be good news for the team in today’s column, the Detroit Lions.

Kerryon Johnson: Is He the Answer in Detroit?

Dominick Petrillo | July 20th, 2018

Let’s face it, whether it be Javid best, Theo Riddick or Ameer Abdullah, the Lions have not been able to find a running game since Barry Sanders left town. With Matthew Stafford behind center and an all-time great like Calvin Johnson out wide, this was masked in some sense. But now that Stafford is getting older, and Megatron is in the wind, the running game will become a more important component of the Detroit offense again. The player who the Lions are now counting on to give them a respectable running game is rookie Kerryon Johnson. The running back from Auburn who was the SEC offensive player of the year in 2017.
