Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock and QB Dan Orlovsky will be judged on their total body of work, and "the best player" will win the backup quarterback job, head coach Jim Caldwell said.

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky remains the backup seeing second-team reps in the spring, but he is only signed through 2016 and does not have a future in Detroit. The team drafted QB Jake Rudock in the sixth round and he looked competent in minicamp.

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may have a lock on the No. 2 job despite the presence of QB Jake Rudock on the roster. Lions coach Jim Caldwell and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter were singing Orlovsky's praises after OTAs ended last week.
Fantasy Tip: The thinking is Rudock may need some seasoning despite his raw talent, so Orlovsky may have the proven track record. The Lions may go with three QB's in 2016. If you own Matthew Stafford on your roster, it's always wise to stash the backup away as a "handcuff" selection, so keep an eye on how this shakes out.

Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford was benched late in the third quarter of the Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals, down 35-7. QB Dan Orlovsky replaced him.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if the winless Lions plan to make a quarterback change, but it's bad news for the FantasyScore outlook for Stafford ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) going forward. Orlovsky ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) might be worth grabbing just in case, in formats which require two starting signal callers.

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky appears to have a solid lead over QB Kellen Moore for the No. 2 quarterback job this season.
Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:03:33 -0700
Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may lose his job as the Lions' backup quarterback. QB Kellen Moore has a chance to win the job after taking a large share of the second-team reps this offseason. Orlovsky ranked No. 29 in an NFL.com ranking of all 32 backup quarterbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Orlovsky hasn't appeared in a game since 2012 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has just a 57.1% career completion percentage. If anything should happen to Matt Stafford this season, Orlovsky won't be a fantasy option for Stafford owners.
Sun, 12 Jul 2015 06:36:20 -0700
Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky is expected to enter training camp as the leading candidate for the No. 2 quarterback job but will compete with QB Kellen Moore for the job.
Wed, 27 May 2015 19:21:30 -0700
