Detroit Lions Drafting Tendencies…


Twitter @FFMetrics

If you’ve been reading along with FFM the past few months, you’ve noticed my new-found love of the Detroit Lions and the moves they’ve made in the 2017 offseason. One of the FFM faithful sent in this article that might help put some of the Lions’ sudden smarts into perspective. I thought you might find it interesting.

At the bottom of this article are more articles on the same topic looking at different positions/what prospects the Lions may be targeting in the NFL Draft with the new GM’s ‘system’.

It won’t be long now… 2017 Fantasy Football Draft Guide time is nearly upon us! Our seventh annual edition over at Fantasy Football It’s a fantasy draft guide like none other – updated nearly every day from our June launch to opening kickoff. 500+ players projected with thousands of words of commentary for the 2017 season based on our tape scouting, computer models for the 2017 season and the schedule impact. We nailed it out of the gates on Jordan Howard, Tyrell Williams, Rishard Matthews and so many more – pulling sleepers out of thin air and avoiding many landmines. And of course, David Johnson as our ‘top guy’ for 2016…just like we had him rated higher than anyone else in the dynasty rookie draft in 2015, a major sleeper in our 2015 fantasy football draft guide and ranked #1 among all fantasy options going into 2016…we never wavered. You need to know about these guys before everyone else…not debating how high to rank them once they are stars – anyone can do that. We find talent and value year-round, ahead of the masses.

Coming in June 2017, so start the countdown! We have several new ‘things’ planned for 2017. It’s going to be our most ambitious draft guide package ever. It won’t be long now…
