The Lions and OC Jim Bob Cooter have agreed to "mutually" part ways, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A favorite of the Draft Sharks podcast, Cooter's tenure in Detroit got off to a nice start. But he was at the controls of 1 of the most disappointing offenses in the league in 2018, with the Lions finishing 24th in total yards and 25 in points. With a nice core in Matt Stafford, Kerryon Johnson, Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, this unit is capable of a big bounce back in 2019.
Lions QB Matt Stafford played through "broken bones in his back" last season, according to Mike O’Hara of the team's official website. Stafford was listed on the injury report for the final 4 games of the year, but this is the 1st we've heard of the extent of the injury. He did struggle in those final 4 outings, averaging just 6.0 yards per attempt with 3 total TDs. But Stafford's bigger problem last season was Detroit's renewed commitment to the run, which left Stafford with a career-low 34.7 pass attempts per game. His volume might drop again in 2019 with the arrival of run-loving O Darrell Bevell. Stafford is just a lower-end QB2 in fantasy drafts.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (back) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He’s fully expected to start, but this is just another reason to avoid him in fantasy lineups.
