Lions offense struggling in preseason

Detroit News - [Full Article]

The Lions first-team offense has yet to produce a touchdown in two games. It gained 68 yards in two series against the Jets, 88 in five drives against the Browns. They converted just seven first downs in seven drives.

QB Matt Stafford, 14-for-24 and 132 yards, has completed six passes to wide receivers, three to Calvin Johnson against the Jets and three to Patrick Edwards against the Browns. Take away a 28-yarder to Johnson and an 18-yard catch and run by Reggie Bush, and Stafford is averaging 7.2 yards on his other 12 completions.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's only two preseason games. With the starters likely to play a lot in Week 3, there is plenty of time to build the momentum the team seems to need before the season starts. There's too much talent here to move any Lions down your board in a moment of panic.
