5:00 pm GMT, 9/22

6-10 on the year in the last year, the Lions will need a lot to change in order for this season to be a success. Stafford is now on his 2nd year of his 5 yr/$135 million contract and the Lions and Lions’ fans alike would like to see that money bring the team success in a way it hasn’t seen in some time, with their last playoff win coming in 1991. Stafford is currently on the second year of his huge contract, so he will hopefully start to produce better, making the money worth it. Let's take a look at some major depth chart questions for the Lions this season.

What does depth at the WR position look like for the Lions this year?

Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones will be lining up on the outside for the Lions this year as a Danny Amendola will be in the slot. Marvin Jones put up 508 yards on 35 receptions last year and had 5 TDs. Amendola put up 575 yards on 59 receptions for an average of 9.7 yards per catch and scored just one TD. Golladay was utilized much more and finished with 1,063 yards and 70 receptions. His 1,063 yards put him at 17th in the NFL. Behind them are Jermaine Kearse, Brandon Powell, and Andy Jones. The strongest of that second line is Jeramine Kearse who spent the last two seasons with the Jets and the five before that with the Seahawks as a part of their Super Bowl team.

What does the LB position look like for Detroit?

Of all the things that the Lions have done to revamp their defense, their linebacker core still remains quite week. Devon Kennard, Jarrad Davis, and Christian Jones make up the starting three linebackers. The second line is comprised of Jalen Reeves-Maybin, Jahlani Tavai, and Steve Longa. The strongest of the second line is Jahlani Tavai who was taken by the Lions with the 11th pick in the second round of the 2019 Draft. If he has a good preseason, I could definitely see him stealing the starting MLB spot from Jarrad Davis who is in his third year in the NFL. The thing with having a weak linebacker core is that the starters are bound to switch throughout the year based on who's performing. There's a good chance things look very different by the end of the season for the Lions in this respect.

How do the Lions stack up at RB this year?

The Lions' starting RB is of course Kerryon Johnson. He finished last year with 641 rushing yards on 118 attempts which put him at 30th overall in the NFL for the position. Directly behind him in the depth chart is CJ Anderson, who made a name for himself last post-season with the Rams. Anderson is a bulky RB who simply charges forward for solid pickups, and I really like this addition for the Lions at RB. Behind Anderson is Zach Zenner who will be in his 5th season in the NFL and with the Lions. He played in 8 games last year and had a total of 265 rushing yards on 55 attempts, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. With the addition of Anderson, I think it's likely his touches go down this year with the exception, of course, of Johnson or Anderson getting injured.
