Lions | Matthew Stafford will be in uniform

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 08:53:47 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford suffered the injury last week but likely will receive his normal workload against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will be a risky option because the injury is to his throwing hand but can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback before of the matchup.

Lions | Jim Caldwell only has one year left on deal

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 07:30:23 -0800

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell's extension that he received earlier in the year was only for the 2018 season and included an option for 2019, according to sources. His status with the team will not be determined until after the season, but the extension will not factor into the decision.

Lions | Matthew Stafford likely to start Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:02:39 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is expected to start Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford appears to be on pace to start his 109th consecutive game and should be viewed as a low-end QB1 option in all fantasy formats due to the favorable matchup. He was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report but owners should have no reservations about starting him.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah unlikely to play

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 05:55:11 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, his possible deactivation for this afternoon could be related more to performance than health. RB Theo Riddick should see a decent amount of playing time and is worthy of consideration as a flex option in PPR fantasy leagues.

Lions | Matthew Stafford limited in practice

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:42:00 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has healed very quickly from the hand injury he suffered late in the Week 13 game in Baltimore. If he starts he is a very nice fantasy option against the league's 31st-ranked pass defense. Tampa has allowed 267.3 yards per game, most in the NFC, and 19 touchdowns with 10 or more pass plays of 40 yards allowed.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah listed as questionable

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:41:32 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) worked on a limited basis in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah is a risky fantasy play at this point. If he is inactive it would be Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner filling the void. When healthy Abdullah is more of a low-end RB3 or flex play.

Lions | Matthew Stafford recovering quickly

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 09:20:27 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) appears to be on the right track in terms of his right hand injury healing enough for him to play in Week 14 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, it would be a surprise if he didn't go. After struggling to stay healthy over the first two years of his career, Stafford hasn't missed a game in his last seven seasons. If he plays, he'll be in the low-end QB1 discussion.

Lions | Detroit's Thursday practice report

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:25:14 -0800

Lions | Ameer Abdullah also limited

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:22:05 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah's situation is one to shy away from even in a great matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Abdullah is not guaranteed to play at this point, and if he does he could be limited. Theo Riddick makes for a nice PPR flex either way.

Lions | Matthew Stafford limited

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:18:28 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford really doesn't want to miss this matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The scallywags are among the worst fantasy defenses in the league this year and the Lions are usually forced to pass early and often in order to stay in games. If Stafford is active then he should be started.
