Lions | Tahir Whitehead's stock rising

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 01:42:59 -0700

Detroit Lions LB Tahir Whitehead had 10 tackles and three sacks during his team's exhibition game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "He was really playing at a level of one of the top three linebackers, and so we put him in position to kind of see what we can do," coach Jim Caldwell said of Whitehead. "And obviously he took advantage of it."

Fantasy Tip: Whitehead could be a player to watch if Kyle Van Noy's abdominal issues keep him sidelined for a while. The Jaguars are not the most dominant team to face, but three sacks is still impressive in any circle.
