The Detroit Lions are an obvious candidate to be a bottom-feeding team this season. After losing the only thing keeping them afloat in Matthew Stafford, the Lions will enter full rebuild mode with Jared Goff now under center. Detroit has some exciting young talent like running back D’Andre Swift as well as recent draft picks in wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and offensive tackle Penei Sewell.

Regardless of the young talent, the Lions are simply an incomplete football team. They will need tons of time to grow and this will not be their year. Expect them to battle it out for the worst record in the National Football League.

It is risky business betting against a team that has the upside that Detroit does, but I am doubling down on my belief that this will be a train wreck season for the Lions. The NFC North is a lackluster division at best with the Green Bay Packers figuring to take it down with ease during what is expected to be Aaron Rodgers‘ final season with the team.

As previously mentioned, Detroit is in the midst of a rebuild and not actively focusing on winning games. There will be a tanking effort across the NFL this season just like every other season in recent memory, this time with the Lions at the forefront.

T.J. Hockenson: Over 5 TDs (2021 NFL Season)

T.J. Hockenson had been one of Matthew Stafford’s primary targets while he was in Detroit, and while his relationship with Jared Goff has yet to be fully formed, it’s hard to imagine Goff not viewing the tight end as a primary target, too.

Hockenson is one of the more gifted tight ends in the league and should be one of Goff’s primary end zone targets this season given the lackluster receiving corps behind him. I expect him to go well over five touchdowns after going for six last season. He is not fighting anyone supremely prominent for targets this season either, so if Goff and Hockenson figure it out early in the year, expect him to have a scoring barrage attached to his credit.
