Lions | Lance Moore, Brandon Pettigrew probable

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 14:25:40 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore (ankle) and TE Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) are probable for Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. Pettigrew was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 9, while Moore was a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: Both Moore ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Pettigrew ($2,000) are strictly salary cap relief options on FantasyScore.

Lions | Lance Moore puts in full work

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 14:38:46 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't have more than three catches or 22 yards in any game this year. He shouldn't be on anyone's radar on FantasyScore this weekend against a nasty Arizona Cardinals secondary.

Lions | Lance Moore to see time in slot

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 21:11:13 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore has experience, knowledge of the offense and ability to play the slot which is likely to give him an edge over other receivers vying for the last spots on the 53-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: Moore could win the No. 3 wide receiver for the Lions, and he might re-emerge as a useful WR4 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Lions | Ryan Broyles on outside looking in?

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 21:10:39 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles is not expected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Tim Twentyman. He feels the Lions will keep five wide receivers with WRs Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Corey Fuller, Jeremy Ross and Lance Moore making the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles was ultra-talented coming out of college, but injuries have made him a fringe NFL player. Even if he makes the roster he is not projected to be useful in fantasy football.

Lions | Detroit's slot WR job up for grabs

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:02:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WRs Jeremy Ross, Corey Fuller, Ryan Broyles and Lance Moore will all be candidates for the slot receiver job during training camp. Ross worked with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, but his roster spot is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have several other options in the passing game, so it is not known if the winner of the competition will have a lot of fantasy value. The winner of the competition could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues but would not be a weekly starting option.

Lions | Lance Moore excited to be in Detroit

Thu, 28 May 2015 17:24:26 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore is excited to be back in the offense led by Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi. "This is the offense I had the most success in in my career," said Moore. "I played in this offense for eight years and I think Joe Lombardi was there six or seven of those years that I was there," Moore said Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is likely to win one of the final two spots in the Lions' wide receiver corps. Moore shouldn't be a consideration in fantasy drafts, but he could become an option on FantasyScore, if the Lions suffer some injuries to their receiver group.

Lions | Lance Moore contract details

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:22:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore signed a one-year contract worth $1.05 million. He will earn a base salary of $970,000 after receiving a $40,000 signing bonus. Moore will receive a $40,000 roster bonus if he makes the Lions' Week 1 roster. Earning the minimum salary benefit means Moore will count $655,000 against Detroit's 2015 salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is hardly a lock to make the team, but he could have fleeting fantasy value with the right matchups if he does land a top-three receiver spot. He's a better DFS play on FantasyScore than a traditional draft choice.
