While 2018 didn’t amount to all that Lions fans wanted it to, it sure was fun. The Lions had plenty of tricks up their sleeves throughout the season, providing moments like a Taylor Decker touchdown reception and a Matt Prater touchdown pass.

Fun on the field—and of course, winning, brings out the best in players and shows us just how fun and lovable they can be. With plenty of young draftees, free agent signings, and budding stars, there’s plenty of reasons to love certain players.

Question of the day: Who’s your favorite player currently on the Detroit Lions?

My answer: Sam Martin.

Before you heckle me because ‘punters are no fun’, I’m certainly a minority in that I love special teams. Punting is one of my favorite parts of the game, and Sam Martin, in particular, always seems like he’s having a good time on and off the field. Just look at the cover photo for this article—that’s the kind of enthusiasm that shines a light on underappreciated players like punters and linemen.

Who’s your favorite player on the roster right now? Let us know in the comments.
