The Detroit Lions are coming off a 3-13-1 season in 2021, and oddsmakers project an improvement in Year 2 under head coach Dan Campbell. The Lions have an over/under win total set at 6.5 with -125 odds toward the over. One of the interesting position battles to keep an eye on from now through Game 1 is whether Jeff Okudah will crack the starting lineup. The No. 3 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft tore his Achilles in the first game of last season.

Here, we’ll keep track of roster cuts for the Lions and what it means for the betting and fantasy football landscape ahead of the 2022 NFL season.

Lions roster news

Notable names

  • Tim Boyle — The Lions released one of their QBs on Monday ahead of roster cuts. So Detroit will proceed with starter Jared Goff and David Blough as the backup for 2022. We could see Boyle signed to the practice squad as a quick replacement if there is an injury.
