    Congratulations! Hopefully those of you reading this are preparing for Championship Weekend of the 2018 fantasy football season. It has been a challenging year for fantasy owners Youth Amani Oruwariye Jersey , just as it has been for the Detroit Lions. But while the Lions are limping through two more meaningless games, everything is on the line this week in fantasy.Finding a Lions player to highlight each week this season has not been easy, and it feels fitting that this might be the toughest week of them all. I avoided picking back-to-back players the whole year, but now is not the time to get cute. League title on the line? Fire up Kenny Golladay, who is the Week 16 Defenses & Dragons player of the week.FantasyPros Ranking: WR21 (0.5 PPR)FanDuel Pricing: WR16 ($7100)Golladay has been on a roller coaster all season long. His first five games had totals of at least 14 fantasy points four times, but the next three weeks were all single-digit performances. Here are the results from the six outings since then: 16.8 White Amani Oruwariye Jersey , 21.3, 11.5, 6.5, 1.5, 18.1. On the whole, this looks encouraging Frank Ragnow Jersey , but another 6.5-point showing could be hugely detrimental in the finals.In his first matchup against the Vikings, Golladay brought in just three receptions for 46 yards and 6.9 points. Why trust him this week? It just seems hard to believe he will see only four targets again. Since the game in Minnesota, Golladay is averaging 9.3 targets per week. This sort of usage should be enough for a WR2 showing.A touchdown would be nice, but it may be hard to come by. Very few WR1s have scored against the Vikings, and big wide receiver games in general have been infrequent. Still, this feels like a big opportunity for Golladay. He is coming off a great performance and in a lot of ways is auditioning for a bigger role next season. The Minnesota secondary is no joke Jarrad Davis Jersey , but Golladay will see enough targets to make him worth a start when it counts the most.Prediction: 7 receptions, 85 yards, 0 touchdowns; 12.0 fantasy points ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions are not renewing offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter’s contract after the team sputtered to a 6-10 season while quarterback Matthew Stafford struggled.The Lions announced their decision Tuesday, two days after finishing 6-10 in coach Matt Patricia’s first season at the helm. Cooter was a holdover from Jim Caldwell’s staff, but his first season with Patricia did not go well.Only two teams in the NFC scored fewer points than Detroit’s 324. Rookie running back Kerryon Johnson gave the Lions’ running game a bit of a boost before he was lost for the season with a knee injury. Stafford took a step back T.J. Hockenson Detroit Lions Jersey , falling short of 4,000 yards passing for the first time since his injury-filled 2010 campaign.Detroit won its finale 31-0 over Green Bay, but that was the only time in its last 10 games that the Lions scored more than 22 points.Cooter was a quarterbacks coach for the Lions before taking over as offensive coordinator during the 2015 season. Detroit kept him after firing Caldwell and hiring Patricia, but that continuity didn’t seem to help much this season.Stafford threw 21 touchdown passes, also his lowest mark since 2010, and his passer rating of 89.9 was his lowest since 2014.“I think there are games where we were able to execute well in the passing game T.J. Hockenson Jersey 2019 , and obviously games where we didn’t, and that’s why we are where we are right now,” Patricia said Monday. “We’ll evaluate all of it.”The Lions’ offense also took a hit when they traded Golden Tate for a draft pick in October. Receiver Marvin Jones ended up going on injured reserve. So did Johnson , who rushed for 641 yards in the 10 games he did play.Although Patricia has only been the coach for one season, Detroit’s decline from a 9-7 record in 2017 was stark enough that this should be an intriguing offseason. Now the Lions have a chance to reassess their offense as they move forward.
