Lions | Dwayne Washington impressing OC

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 09:00:41 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington received praise from offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter Wednesday, Aug. 24. "When the guy gets the ball he does impressive things," Cooter said of Washington.

Fantasy Tip: Washington is battling for a final roster spot and could crack the roster because of his ability in the return game. Remember, he scored a 96-yard kickoff return during the preseason opener. For now, he's nothing more than a player to watch in deeper fantasy leagues, though.

Lions | Golden Tate back at practice

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 15:10:17 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 23. The extent of his participation was not disclosed, however.

Fantasy Tip: Tate's mystery injury isn't a big deal, apparently. He should be good to go for this weekend and is still in the WR2 conversation in all formats with Calvin Johnson out of the picture.

Lions | Eric Ebron on track for opener

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 07:03:30 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is expected to play in Week 1, barring a setback, according to a source. Ebron has an outside chance at playing in the final preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is a breakout candidate that figures to be a big cog in an offense that took off under Jim Bob Cooter late last season. Ebron is a midrange TE1 with upside.

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 19:56:58 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock and QB Dan Orlovsky will be judged on their total body of work, and "the best player" will win the backup quarterback job, head coach Jim Caldwell said.

Lions | Golden Tate misses practice

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 19:01:07 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (undisclosed) did not practice Saturday, Aug. 20. He wouldn't mention the specifics of his injury, but he talked about playing in the preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is set to be Detroit's top receiver in the wake of Calvin Johnson's retirement. He is a borderline WR2 in PPR formats and a solid WR3 in standard leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron likely for Week 1?

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 14:13:06 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) still has no timetable for a return, but there is some optimism he'll be "ready to roll" by Week 1, according to Detroit Free Press writer Dave Birkett.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is still not practicing, but he was reportedly spotted jogging and caught passes from a JUGS machine Sunday. Birkett also tweeted it was the first time he'd seen the third-year tight end run since he first suffered his ankle injury on Aug. 6. Given his injury history and the plethora of pass-catching weapons Detroit has at the moment, Ebron should probably be considered a high-upside TE2.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah cleared for contact

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 16:58:26 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) practiced without a no-contact jersey for the first time in training camp Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: It is a positive development for the Lions' starting running back, although Detroit figures to utilize a committee backfield as much as any team in the league this season. This news suggests he could be ready to play as soon as next week's dress rehearsal game in Baltimore against the Ravens and makes it all but certain he'll be ready for Week 1. In fantasy, he's a midrange RB3.

Lions | Stevan Ridley may be on bubble

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 07:07:38 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley may be on the roster bubble if he does not receive any work with the second-team offense during the team's third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley appears to be at least fourth on the depth chart at this point and has only played in the second half in the first two preseason games. He will not have much fantasy value if he stays with the Lions.

Lions | Theo Riddick worked with starters

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 14:19:40 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, in part because RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) did not play.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick will have a solid role on offense even when Abdullah will be able to play again. He should be a valuable option for owners in point-per-reception leagues since he caught 80 passes last season. He could be a weekly flex option in PPR leagues and a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues.

Lions | Matthew Stafford wants quicker pace

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 14:08:14 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said he hopes the offense plays at a quicker pace this season. He has gone 12-for-17 for 171 yards in two preseason games when the team has used an up-tempo offense.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford played well once Jim Bob Cooter became the offensive coordinator last season and should continue to improve this season. He did lose Calvin Johnson during the offseason but still has several weapons to work with in the passing game. Stafford probably should be a high-end No. 2 quarterback in most leagues but could be used as a starter against certain opponents.

Lions | Marvin Jones proving his worth

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 20:04:02 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones finished with four catches for a game-high 65 yards in a 30-14 preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jones continues to thrive in his first year in Detroit, and he has enough upside to grab in the middle rounds as a WR3.
