Detroit will bring back a similar offense to 2019, but hopefully, they return in much better health. The Lions added D'Andre Swift out of Georgia in the draft to compete for a starting job with Kerryon Johnson. The same receiving core will return, which is led by Kenny Golladay. Both him and Marvin Jones had successful 2019 seasons, despite the injury to Matthew Stafford. T.J. Hockenson had a down rookie season but will look to bounce back. On the defensive side they traded away Darius Slay and then turned around and drafted Jeff Okudah, who was the top cornerback in the draft.

Detroit Lions Depth Chart FAQ

The 2019 season was a wash once Matthew Stafford went down. In the offseason, they took the top corner in the draft, but they also traded away one of the top corners in the league, Darius Slay. The Lions offense has some impressive young names like Kenny Golladay and TJ Hockenson, who should see plenty of targets and produce well. While the Lions sit low on the NFL rankings, they still have a chance to be competitive with Stafford under center. However, the run game and defense will likely lead to a lot of shootouts, given they are not the identity of the team.

Is D’Andre Swift The Starting Running Back?

There will be a running back competition between D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson for the starting running back role. However, Swift has the upper hand given Johnson's health and struggles early on in his career.

Is TJ Hockenson Good For Fantasy Football?

Tight ends tend to need a few years before they develop into fantasy football stars. Hockenson was banged up and didn't produce much, but targets will be there in year two, and the volume of the passing game should be high.

Who Are The Lions Wide Receivers?

Detroit has a solid set of wide receivers with Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola. Golladay is now the top wide receiver on the roster, and Jones has put up some big touchdown numbers since arriving in Detroit.

What Positions Are Weak On Lions Depth Chart?

The front seven needs the most work for the Detroit Lions as they struggled against the run and putting pressure on the quarterback. Losing many names, they have failed to address these issues over the last two offseasons.

Who Backs Up Matthew Stafford?

As we saw last season, the year was lost once Matthew Stafford went down with an injury. Chase Daniel is the backup quarterback, and that doesn't bode well for quarterback depth. Daniel spent his last few seasons with the Chicago Bears.

Who Replaced Darius Slay?

With the Detroit Lions trading away their best defensive player, they drafted the best cornerback in the draft in, Jeff Okudah. He will jump right into a starting role next to Justin Coleman and Desmond Trufant.
