Lions | Zach Zenner draws head coach's praise

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 15:50:41 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner finished with 24 yards rushing and three catches for another 32 yards in the team's preseason-opening win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday, Aug. 12, continuing to build on the momentum he started last year when he led the NFL in rushing over the 2015 preseason. "He does what he always does. He's a valuable member of our special teams, but he's also a guy that's very versatile from the backfield. He can run the ball. He's got a knack that he can make you miss. He also has an uncanny ability to catch the ball out the backfield and find seams. He's a well-rounded player. Very smart and makes very few mistakes," head coach Jim Caldwell said.

Fantasy Tip: Zenner is in a fight with Stevan Ridley to be the Lions' third running back behind Ameer Abdullah and scatback Theo Riddick, so the fact Caldwell speaks so highly of his all-around contributions bodes well for his ability to stick. The former undrafted free agent would probably also be considered the frontrunner for short-yardage and goal-line duties if he makes the team as expected. Considering he is probably also Abdullah's most likely handcuff, he has RB5 appeal in deeper leagues.

Lions | Jim Caldwell talks two-point attempts

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:14:02 -0700

Detroit Lions head Jim Caldwell was noncommittal on his approach to two-point conversions this upcoming season. Caldwell said going for two points or not will depend on the situation. In Caldwell's two years as head coach, the Lions converted zero of their three two-point attempts last year and one of three tries the year before.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect to see a ton of two-point tries by the Lions this year. They only had three such tries last year even after the rule change. It shouldn't have much impact on the fantasy value of guys like Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate.

Lions | Dan Orlovsky's job safe?

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 04:55:41 -0700

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.
