Patricia said the team is doing it "out of respect for Matthew and his competitiveness," but it doesn't sound like the Lions would be wise to suit him up with the season lost. Blough will get the start in Week 14 and looked good on Thanksgiving.
DET QB David Blough - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Green Bay Packers
In the loss at Denver last Sunday, David Blough completed only 50% of his 24 attempts for 117 yards and a TD. While it was his first game without an interception, he was sacked four times. The rookie has thrown for over 250 yards every other start so this would be his week to post better numbers. In mid-October at Green Bay, Matthew Stafford passed for 265 yards, but Blough should only be started if you’re desperate.
