Lions K Matt Prater hits three FGs in Week 12 defeat
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions kicker Matt Prater provided the only points for his team in a 34-9 defeat to New England on Sunday. He converted field goals of 48, 20 and 49 on the day. He hooked a 53-yard attempt wide left late in the second quarter for his only miss, finishing 3 of 4 in Week 12.

Lions get contributions from several role players Week 12
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Lions received minor contributions from several role players in a 34-9 loss to New England on Sunday.

With Reggie Bush sidelined with an ankle injury, Theo Riddick worked as the team's No. 2 running back. He was limited to two carries for 12 yards and caught three passes for 40 yards.

Jeremy Ross nearly scored his third career touchdown, but saw a Matt Stafford pass bounce right off his fingers. He caught three of five targets for 35 yards. Eric Ebron also had some crucial drops and finished with only two catches for 23 yards. Corey Fuller saw two of Stafford's passes go through his hands in the end zone. He was limited to only one grab for 13 yards.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson held under 60 receiving yards again
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receivers Calvin Johnson had an uninspiring performance Sunday afternoon against the Patriots in Week 13.

Johnson was heavily shadowed by either Brandon Browner or Darrelle Revis throughout the day. He came down with a 16-yard reception on the final play of the first quarter for his only grab of the first half. Johnson was targeted 10 times and finished with four catches for 58 yards in a 34-9 defeat.

Johnson has been held under 60 receiving yards in back-to-back games. He'll look to break the trend on Thanksgiving Day against Chicago.

Lions WR Golden Tate cools off after red-hot start Week 12
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions receiver Golden Tate got off to a fast start but cooled off in Sunday's 34-9 defeat to New England in Week 12.

Tate hauled in two receptions for 41 yards on the opening drive, followed by a 42-yard grab on the opening play of the second quarter. He cracked the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career with that second-quarter reception. He was limited to only one catch for a gain of 14 yards in the second half. Tate was targeted 10 times and finished with four catches for 97 yards. He also took one end-around for 13 yards.

Tate has 1,047 receiving yards and three scores on the year. He'll look to keep rolling on Thanksgiving Day against Chicago.

Not even Lions can slow Patriots
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Lions defense, which had only three times allowed even 20 points this season -- the last time coming Week 8 at Atlanta -- gave up 34 to the hosting Patriots in Week 12. The Patriots' 439 yards were also the most surrendered by the Lions this season.

The performance was understandable given the opponent. With this game, the Patriots are now averaging 40.0 points in their last seven. The Lions did have an interception, giving them eight straight games with at least one, but they went without a sack for the second straight game.

Though it's been one of the more reliable units in Fantasy this season, the Lions DST hasn't been at its best lately. It's a pretty good bet to bounce back, though, against a struggling Bears offense in Week 13.
