The Lions and QB Jared Goff agreed to a four-year, $212 million extension with $170 million guaranteed. The $53 million annual salary makes Goff the league's second-highest player (for now), behind only QB Joe Burrow. The new deal keeps Goff under contract with Detroit through 2027 and includes an option for 2028, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

The Lions and WR Amon-Ra St. Brown have agreed to a 4-year extension worth "more than" $120 million with $77 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It makes St. Brown the NFL's highest-paid WR (at least for now). The 2021 fourth-rounder has steadily ascended to become one of the league's best WRs. He's improved his catches, receiving yards, receiving TDs, yards per target, and yards per route in each season. His 119-1,515-10 line last year made him the WR3 in PPR points. St. Brown sits fourth in our current dynasty WR rankings.

Ben Johnson will remain with the Lions as OC for the 2024 season, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Johnson had been a hot name in this year's coaching cycle and had been linked to Washington's still-open job. His return is excellent news for Detroit's offense. The Lions lead the NFL with 387 total yards per game and rank fourth with 26.9 points per game under Johnson over the past two seasons.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said Monday that he plans to play his starters in this weekend's regular-season finale vs. the Vikings. Detroit has won the NFC North, can't drop lower than the No. 3 seed in the NFC, and can only climb to No. 2 with a win plus a Cowboys loss to the Commanders and an Eagles loss to the Giants. "We want to use this as fuel," Campbell said. "I’ve got pure octane right now. I woke up and I’m ready, so we’re moving forward.” There's still some risk that the Lions pull key starters at some point during this game, especially if Dallas and Philadelphia have big leads. But we'll be projecting the starters for at least close to normal workloads in the Week 18 Rankings.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown tallied 6 catches for 90 receiving yards and a TD in Week 17 vs. the Cowboys. Saturday’s contest marks the tenth game this season in which the third-year wideout cleared at least 90 yards in a game. For context, St. Brown had only recorded four such games in each of his prior two seasons (eight in total). He ends the 2023 fantasy season with a career-high average of 20.2 PPR points per game and has given managers no reason to question his standing as a top-tier dynasty asset entering the new year. See where he lands among fellow wideouts in our current dynasty rankings.

Lions QB Jared Goff threw for 236 yards, 2 TDs and 3 INTs in Sunday’s comeback win over Chicago. Goff struggled for most of the afternoon before leading a pair of TD drives late in the fourth quarter. His scores went to Jameson Williams (32 yards) and Amon-Ra St. Brown (7 yards). Goff's rest-of-season schedule looks neutral, with only one truly favorable matchup (at Chicago, Week 14) remaining. On the plus side: Goff also has just one outdoor matchup left on the schedule.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown hauled 6 of 9 targets for a team-high 109 receiving yards in Week 8’s win vs. the Raiders. Monday night’s effort marks the third game in a row that St. Brown has exceeded 100 receiving yards and the fifth time overall this season. As dominant as he was, it was rookie TE Sam LaPorta who led the Lions with 10 targets in the contest. The first-year pass-catcher concluded the game with 8 catches for 57 yards and a TD. Unfortunately, fantasy managers will be without these superstars next week. The Lions will return from their bye in Week 10 to take on the Chargers.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (illness) is active for tonight's game vs. the Raiders. He was added to the injury report on Sunday, but there's been nothing to suggest that he'll be impacted tonight.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown is now questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Raiders with an illness. We'll look for more details but would consider this unlikely to keep St. Brown out of tomorrow's game.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown hauled 13 catches for 102 receiving yards in Week 7’s loss vs. the Ravens. The third-year wideout’s 19 targets on Sunday set a new career-high mark after setting his previous best of 15 just one week ago against the Buccaneers. TE Sam LaPorta was also effective again, logging 6 catches on 7 targets for 52 yards in the contest. As unfortunate as it was for Detroit to post just 6 points in this game, at least their pass-catchers were useful for fantasy purposes. We’ll be excited to start these guys again in next week’s game vs. the Raiders.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown went off in Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay, snagging 12 passes for 124 yards and 1 score. Jared Goff played well – on the road, no less – while St. Brown looked fully over his abdomen injury. His TD came from 27 yards out, boosted by RB Craig Reynolds' hustle block. St. Brown will remain a WR1 for Sunday’s game at Baltimore.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) practiced all week and isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. He's safe to get back into fantasy lineups.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. It's confirmation that he's set to return for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) will practice on Wednesday and is trending toward playing vs. the Bucs this weekend, according to Tim Twentyman of the team's official site. We'll track St. Brown's progress over the next few days.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) is "closer to probable" for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. "I feel pretty good about the possibility of him playing this week," Campbell added. "We’ll see how this week goes." St. Brown can be penciled back into Week 6 fantasy lineups. We'll track his progress throughout the week.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful, so he wasn’t particularly close to playing. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 6. St. Brown’s absence leaves 26.7% of Detroit’s targets up for grabs. Josh Reynolds is the best bet to lead Lions WRs in targets today, with Kalif Raymond, Jameson Williams, and Marvin Jones behind him. TE Sam LaPorta should also benefit from St. Brown’s absence. But we’re expecting a run-heavy attack from the Lions today against a leaky Panthers run defense.
