A year ago the Lions DST appeared as one of the most promising options in Fantasy. Now, they'll give you a stomach ache. The unit totaled 34 sacks, 11 interceptions and zero touchdowns in 2012, producing 10 or more Fantasy points just four times. They were particularly mediocre vs. the run (1,889 yards and 13 touchdowns allowed) and the pass (3,569 yards, 26 touchdowns) but allowed on average 27.3 points per game and that helped lead to their downfall. They addressed the pass rush by selecting Ezekiel Ansah with their first-round pick and also picked up versatile lineman Jason Jones from the Titans. But until it's proven that those two additions will bring the heat, no one should count on the Lions DST in 2013 even with a fairly decent opening schedule (vs. the Vikings, at the Cardinals, at the Redskins).
