The Detroit Lions' weren't at their sharpest in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but 1-0 is 1-0 and there is no asterisk on it because of who the Chiefs were without or how many credited drops their wide receivers had.
It was easy to be on-board with a few Lions players as fantasy starters against the Chiefs. But 14 offensive points, and what would have only been their 10th-best yardage output last season, ultimately didn't offer a lot of fantasy goodness. Outside of the three drives, the two touchdown drives and one that ended with a red zone fumble, totaling 227 yards, the Detroit offense didn't get a whole lot going.
But with Week 1 in the books now, here's a look at how some Lions did in fantasy terms (Yahoo! scoring, 0.5-point PPR).
