Lions | Mike Thomas' roster spot in jeopardy?

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 18:22:59 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas has been routinely working with the third unit during training camp, and in one-on-one drills Friday, Aug. 2, he was completely shut down by CB Domonique Johnson. On one play, Thomas was so overmatched that QB Matthew Stafford didn't even throw the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas might be in jeopardy of getting a visit from the turk sooner rather than later. The emergence of a guy like Patrick Edwards has not helped, as he is looking more and more like a roster lock, along with obvious locks Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles.

Lions | Reggie Bush returns punts in OTAs

Wed, 22 May 2013 20:46:51 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush was used as a punt returner during organized team activities (OTAs) Wednesday, May 22. WR Terrence Austin, WR Patrick Edwards, RB Steven Miller, WR Mike Thomas and WR Cody Wilson also took turns returning punts.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners would definitely like to see Bush off punt returns, as it is just extra chance he can become injured. Nothing is engraved in stone just yet, and Bush will still be an outstanding fantasy option, especially in PPR (points per receptions) leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Mike Thomas and WR Brian Robiskie stayed after practice Monday, Nov. 19, along with WR Ryan Broyles, to work with backup QB Shaun Hill running routes and getting better acclimated to the offense.

Lions | Ryan Broyles, Mike Thomas to step up?

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 18:08:52 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Titus Young played 68 of his team's 72 offensive snaps in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers, but he was benched late in the game and expected to be inactive in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 22. WR Ryan Broyles played 31 snaps, and WR Mike Thomas played four snaps in the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Broyles will likely slide up to the starting WR spot opposite Calvin Johnson, with Thomas serving as the team's third wideout. While moving up the ladder is likely good news for their long-term fantasy value, a matchup with the Houston Texans on a short week is not particularly great news, even though their defense was trashed through the air in Week 11 by the Jacksonville Jaguars of all teams.

Fri, 27 Apr 2012 18:33:08 -0700

He added Blackmon's transition to the NFL will be helped by the likes of veteran WRs Mike Thomas, Laurent Robinson and Lee Evans.
