2021 Fantasy Outlook
Relegated to third-string duties in 2020 behind Matthew Stafford and Chase Daniel, Blough only saw game action in a blowout loss at the end of Detroit's miserable season. While the 26-year-old will have new teammates after the Lions swapped Stafford and Daniel for Jared Goff and Tim Boyle, Blough should remain in the No. 3 role and he consequently offers minimal upside as a fantasy option.

Coach's Decision
November 25, 2021
Blough (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears.
ANALYSIS
While dressing as the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Tim Boyle in last week's 13-10 loss to the Browns, Blough didn't see the field, even though Boyle finished with just 15 completions for 77 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions on 23 attempts (3.3 YPA). Despite leading a listless offense in his first NFL start, Boyle looks like he'll hang on to the No. 2 job for now with top quarterback Jared Goff (oblique) rejoining the lineup Thanksgiving Day after a one-game absence.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Getting a spot start thanks to injuries to Matthew Stafford and Jeff Driskel, Blough turned heads by throwing for 280 yards with two scores and a pick in a near victory over the Bears last November. However, the next four games exposed Blough's Thanksgiving Day performance as a flash in the pan, and Detroit accordingly signed Chase Daniel to a three-year, $13.05 deal to take over as Stafford's backup this offseason. There could be a chance for Blough to reassert himself down the line, but his 2020 outlook doesn't look promising.
