While the Detroit Lions’ overall performance against the Chicago Bears was nowhere near acceptable http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/nevin-lawson-jersey-authentic , there were some serious silver linings to take solace in. Here’s a look at the highest graded Lions player on each side of the ball, according to Pro Football Focus.OffenseIt was an ugly day on offense against the Bears, but the two best performers were their skill-position players. Theo Riddick—the Lions’ new Golden Tate—had an impressive day, Since the trade, Riddick has caught 13 of his 15 targets. While Riddick isn’t alone taking over Tate’s production, he did lead all NFL running backs with 13 snaps from the slot last week, per PFF.It’s probably pretty surprising to see a couple of offensive linemen among the top five, considering the Lions gave up six sacks Youth Kerryon Johnson Jersey , but those aren’t exactly great grades for Taylor Decker or Graham Glasgow. As for Matthew Stafford, according to Brett Whitefield from PFF, he is having one of the worst streaks of his career. He has graded below 60 in three straight games (57.1 for this game). His overall grade in the past three weeks has been just 52.5, which ranks him 28th among NFL quarterbacks. His accuracy was the cause of a lot of problems against the Bears. PFF’s “adjusted completion percentage” for Stafford was only 62.5, which was the second worst among quarterbacks in Week 10.DefenseFor the third straight week, Damon Harrison has been the highest graded Lions player on defense. This week, Harrison led all Week 10interior defenders with six run stops. So maybe don’t be so hard on yourself, “Snacks.” But look at the rest of that defensive line! Ezekiel Ansah barely made the cut in terms of minimum snaps (he had exactly 15) http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/matt-prater-jersey-authentic , but his high grade is based on the three pressures he created in limited opportunities. Elsewhere, both A’Shawn Robinson and Da’Shawn Hand continued their impressive season. Note how all five of these defensive players graded out better than anyone on offense. Though Ansah isn’t likely to be on the team next year, the performance of the other three defensive linemen is certainly promising for 2019. But we can’t talk about the Lions’ defensive performance against the Bears without talking about the secondary. I’ll let Whitefield break the bad news: Detroit’s secondary is badly broken. Expect it to be a huge priority this upcoming offseason. One key to fantasy football success comes from looking at strength of schedule. It shouldn't be the only way you build a winning squad, but matchups help make sure you're playing meaningful games in December rather than looking ahead to baseball.Based on the NFL's scheduling formula, the Houston Texans enter the regular season with the easiest docket. Houston's opponents for 2018 had a combined .453 winning percentage last season. That alone has been a reason why quarterback Deshaun Watson has climbed into the top 40 picks in most fantasy drafts, and is also a cause of renewed hope in running back Lamar Miller. The Texans play each of the five teams that made the first six picks in this year's NFL draft.A healthy J.J. Watt extends into the deeper phase of fantasy drafts, especially if Watt returns to the Hall of Fame-caliber player he had been from 2012-15. Houston's defense has been among the first six taken off fantasy draft boards and would be a bargain of sorts should Watt re-emerge as the game's best defender.Another team with a beneficial schedule is the loaded Steelers offense, which will play a schedule of opponents with a .477 winning percentage. Anyone in position to draft either running back Le'Veon Bell or receiver Antonio Brown now has more fodder http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/sam-martin-jersey-authentic , while receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster_who also has risen draft boards this month_sits on the outer edge of being a top 35-40 selection.Looking for easier schedules can also help when seeking a sleeper pick. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota flies under the radar yet could be fantasy gold as Tennessee has the second-easiest schedule (.465). Wideout Mike Williams' appeal is bolstered by the Chargers and their 24th-ranked docket (.480), while the Broncos' defense has the chance to return to their dominant ways with a schedule tied for 25th (.477).On the flip side, those looking at Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford should tread lightly, as Detroit has the second-toughest schedule (.535). A schedule with a .523 winning percentage (tied for fifth-highest) is enough to slow down the lofty talk of a Browns revival, along with requiring a second look at the likes of receiver Josh Gordon and running back Carlos Hyde.Again, strength of schedule isn't a be-all, end-all when considering a player. The Packers have the league's toughest schedule (.539), but Aaron Rodgers is consistently the first quarterback off the board http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/tavon-wilson-jersey-authentic , while the bevvy of offensive talent the Saints have stockpiled will still go high despite their third-toughest schedule.OSUNA CLOSING AGAINControversial closer Roberto Osuna is now the full-time stopper for the Astros after earning his first save for the World Series champions on Wednesday. The decision to elevate him in the ninth inning coincides with Houston snapping out of a funk to take two of three in a critical series against the Mariners, leaving Houston one game ahead of Oakland in the American League West.The combination of his devastating arsenal and the potential for high-leverage situations could see him approach double digits in saves along with enhancing the strikeout category by season's end.RASKY BUSINESSBruins goalie Tuukka Rask may no longer be a top-five player at his position, but don't expect regression this season despite his 5-7 record and .903 save percentage in the postseason.Rask enters 2018-19 with five straight 30-win seasons and while his save percentage has crested since his .930 mark in 2013-14, he remains a reliable net-minder who could become a value pick if he dips past the 80th overall pick in fantasy drafts.
