Lions passing game goes missing again

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/14) Though the Vikings hadn't been so great against the pass recently, allowing an average of 246.8 passing yards to the last four quarterbacks they faced, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made sure their No. 6 ranking against the pass this year held up Week 15 in Detroit, failing to reach even the 185 yards he had against them back in Week 6. He finished with a season-low 153 yards on 17-of-28 passing, throwing for just one touchdown.

This after back-to-back games with 300-plus passing yards in which he threw for a combined five touchdowns. Not even the great Calvin Johnson, who was absent for the previous meeting with the Vikings, could redeem Stafford in this one. He had 53 yards after averaging 152.0 yards the previous two weeks.

Of course, the Lions faced the Bears and Buccaneers in those two weeks, or the league's 24th- and 30th-ranked pass defenses heading into Week 15. The Vikings are certainly better than them. Still, for as few yards as they had allowed through the air, the touchdown-to-interception ratio against them was nothing foreboding. It didn't seem like an unfavorable matchup.

But with Stafford, if the numbers say it's an unfavorable matchup, it's an unfavorable matchup. He's been the most predictable quarterback in Fantasy this season; we just keep making it harder than it needs to be. The good news is that in Week 16 he'll be facing those same Bears that he torched in Week 13, so you'll want to keep him active if you're still alive in Fantasy.

Lions' Calvin Johnson limited Week 15

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) Lions wideout Calvin Johnson turned in an average performance Week 15 against the Vikings.

Johnson hauled in four passes, gaining 53 yards. Though his performance was less than optimal, Johnson still led the team in receiving for the week. While quarterback Matthew Stafford was effective during the game, there weren't a lot of opportunities for big plays. Johnson was hurt by that, with his longest catch going for 23 yards. 

Johnson will look for more Week 16 against the Bears.

Lions will have Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh for Week 15

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) The Lions will have wideout Calvin Johnson and defesive tackle Ndamukong Suh for Week 15.

Both players entered the game considered probable, and were always expected to play. Johnson is listed with an ankle injury. Suh is dealing with an illness. 

The team will also have Josh Bynes, James Ihedigbo, Darius Slay and LaAdrian Waddle. All four players were considered probable for the contest. 

Lions unveil final injury report for Week 15

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/14) Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's clash against the Vikings, according to the team's final injury report released on Friday. Running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and linebacker Tahir Whitehead (shoulder) were deemed questionable.

Meanwhile, linebacker Josh Bynes (illness), safety James Ihedigbo (illness), defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (illness), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle), cornerback Darius Slay (shoulder) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) were ruled probable for Week 15.

Calvin Johnson continues hot streak with 158 yards in Week 14

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/14) Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson hauled in eight balls for 158 yards and a touchdown in Week 14's win over Tampa Bay. 

Johnson got on the scoreboard early when he caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford in the first quarter. Johnson continued to burn the Buccaneers' secondary, including a 53 yard catch late in the first half. 

Johnson now has 43 100-yard receiving games in his career, only Randy Moss, 45, has more in the first eight seasons of his career. 

The Lions will take on the Vikings in Week 15.
