In all of our fantasy leagues, there is always that one team that is good every year. They have a solid core of players or their draft is always top-notch, and week after week they put up wins. They’re always in contention for the top record in the league, and consistently make deep playoff runs often ending in championships.

With that being said, there is nothing better than when one of the bottom-feeder teams in your league raises up out of nowhere to beat that top contender. In fantasy football and in the NFL it is “any given Sunday”.

Lions at Steelers fantasy focus

That pretty much describes the Detroit Lions against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. The Steelers are always good, the model of consistency, and their teams are always built with a solid foundation. The Lions often resemble that team that loves their team after the fantasy draft in your league, but unfortunately is at the bottom of the standings when it’s all said and done.

Jared Goff will have to have his best game at quarterback for the Lions to win. D’Andre Swift, T.J. Hockenson, and Amon-Ra St. Brown will have to carry the load from a fantasy football perspective. Plus Dan Campbell will have to find a way to outcoach the legend that is Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin.

It would be so great if the Lions do their best impression of a fantasy football upset this week. All their players play great and the favored team just has no luck from all their top stars. When the game starts no one will give the Lions a chance, but in the end maybe they are the one standing tall over the storied franchise in Pittsburg.

Bottom Line

Whether you are the top team in your league or that team that is often struggling to put up wins each week in fantasy football, any team can win and any team can be defeated each week.

There is nothing better than seeing the top team, the team that always wins, the team that has won multiple championships take an unexpected loss from a team no one thought had a chance to be victorious.

Maybe that will happen in your fantasy league this week and maybe it will happen when the Lions visit the Steelers in their matchup on the gridiron too.
