Lions | Ameer Abdullah could miss rest of season

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 08:04:56 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) could miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ligament in his left foot, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Theo Riddick will serve as the Lions' primary running back in Abdullah's absence and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats. RB Dwayne Washington is worth considering as a flex option in Week 3's game against the Green Bay Packers and RB Zach Zenner could also be in line to see increased playing time.

He has already been ruled out for Week 3's contest against the Green Bay Packers and will receive a second opinion on an MRI exam this week.

Lions | Zach Zenner could be involved Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:23:02 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner may serve as the team's goal-line back and possibly four-minute back during the absence of Ameer Abdullah, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein. Theo Riddick is still expected to see slightly more work, while Dwayne Washington is expected to absorb at least some of Abdullah's early-down role.

Fantasy Tip: Rothstein supports his case by saying Zenner is bigger than Riddick and has better ball security than Washington, but it's hard to believe Washington's new early-down workload will be so significant that he cannot continue to serve as the goal-line back as well. Zenner will likely be active on game day while Abdullah is away, but it's far from a lock he'll slide into Washington's old role.

Lions | Eric Ebron questionable

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:38:00 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron appears to be on track to play this week, but owners should keep an eye out on the inactive list before setting their lineup. He has recorded 99 yards and one touchdown in the first two games of the season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron limited

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 15:15:16 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron didn't practice yesterday, so the limited status is a positive sign. The Green Bay Packers have been susceptible to tight ends, too, yielding nearly 150 yards and two touchdowns to the position in two games. Ebron is a borderline TE1 for Week 3.

Lions | Detroit not adding Ray Rice

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 17:51:54 -0700

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) is not an option for the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions recently lost Ameer Abdullah but will not be signing Rice to replace him. It is not known if Rice will play in the NFL again. Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner should share work at running back moving forward. Riddick probably has more value because of his ability to be a receiver out of the back field. He could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in point-per-reception leagues. Zenner could be a flex option in deeper leagues.
