Lions | Joseph Fauria out for OTAs

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 19:06:45 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) will not participate in organized team activities (OTAs) due to the ankle injury he has been battling since September. However, he is expected to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen whether Fauria will have any fantasy appeal this season. Remember, Eric Ebron is on the club and projected to do big things, so Fauria's role shouldn't be too large initially.

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 09:10:50 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 10, with an ankle injury.

Lions | Joseph Fauria limited with injury

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 12:19:17 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) was limited in Week 14 with an ankle injury and saw just 12 repetitions. There was no update or timetable on the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron would be the two benefactors if Fauria were to miss any time and will likely be a cheap play on FantasyScore this week. If Fauria is able to play, it's best to stay away from all three of them.

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 09:05:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons in London. TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) is also out, and TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is listed as doubtful.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions will be down to their fourth and fifth string tight ends in London in Jordan Thompson and Kellen Davis, who they recently signed. Neither are viable options for any fantasy football lineups.

Lions | Jordan Thompson could have major role

Sat, 18 Oct 2014 17:35:48 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Jordan Thompson was added to the active roster from the practice squad for the team's Week 7 game, and head coach Jim Caldwell indicated that he could serve as the pass-catching tight end with TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) and TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) expected to miss the game. "Obviously in the role he'd play, he'd end up serving in the capacity where Joe and Ebron both would have played," Caldwell said. "And if that happens, he'll be ready for it."

Fantasy Tip: Several of Matthew Stafford's weapons will be missing in Week 7, and Thompson could end up seeing enough targets to make him a worthwhile sleeper.

Lions | Friday practice report for Week 7

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:12:22 -0700

Lions | Eric Ebron sitting out

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:33:17 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16, after being limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. Ebron saw a career high in snaps in the team's Week 6 victory. The team is already without TE Joseph Fauria (ankle), so if Ebron can't play in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, TE Brandon Pettigrew would be the only active tight end on roster.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($3,300; 6.6% of cap) is an attractive option for your FantasyScore lineups if he plays. The Saints have been beat up by opponents all season long. Check back tomorrow for Ebron's status. If he doesn't play, Pettigrew ($3,000) is probably worth a flier if you want to go ultra-cheap at tight end.
