Detroit Lions: 2010 – 2011 Regular Season Schedule
If the Lions acquire a top defensive tackle at this years draft their front line could be imposing at times this year. While the defense is getting better, this organization will need Matthew Stafford to continue his development in order to be a good team in future seasons.
Below we have the Lions 2010 -2011 regular season schedule for you to view as we inch closer to the beginning of the NFL season. We also have the fantasy relevant players for Detroit, and a breakdown for all NFL teams in schedule strength in win/loss, against the pass, run and points.
Strength of Schedules
Offensive Line Needed
The Lions could really use a left tackle at this years’ draft, but it looks like they will go defense in the first round. This decision is probably the right move as they will have a chance to add a big time defensive tackle to their team.
Matthew Stafford may not have average protection this season, but he should have some big fantasy days if Calvin Johnson stays healthy. Add Nate Burleson into the mix and Stafford has two viable options in the passing game.
Another need the Lions have is at the running back position as Kevin Smith is still recovering from a torn ACL injury. Expect the team to take a running back at some point in the draft.
Upgrades On Defense
All of a sudden, the Lions are on the cusp of having a darn good defensive line for this up coming season. With the additions of tackle Corey Williams and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch this defense was already looking decent. Add Nebraska defensive stud Ndamukong Suh and this front line could be very nasty at times.
Hopefully, the Lions will take Suh as having him with Williams would make opposing offensive lines concerned about the Lions interior line. Not only that but it should help stuff the run and make the pass rush much better. Getting Suh could change this team fortunes for a long time.
