Lions | Ameer Abdullah leads struggling running game

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 16:04:23 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah ran 14 times for 47 yards in a 30-26 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah tries to break loose each week but ends up with a limited amount of yards. As long as Abdullah can't break the 100-yard mark, he remains no better than an RB3 or flex option.

Lions | Matthew Stafford average in Week 3

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:42:58 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw 25-for-45 for 265 yards and one touchdown in a 30-26 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: It could have been two touchdowns, but by now you probably know about the touchdown that wasn't. Stafford has a reputation for strong comeback and volume-passing efforts make the Lions signal-caller a decent QB1 option every game.

Lions | Offensive line problems for Lions?

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:37:45 -0700

Detroit Lions C Travis Swanson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 3 game and still has a chance to play, but OG Graham Glasgow likely would move to center if Swanson is ruled out. OG Joe Dahl (leg) could move to left guard to replace Glasgow, but he is also listed as questionable for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Detroit's offensive line problems probably would affect their offensive scheme against the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Stafford may be asked to throw more short passes so he can avoid the pass rush. Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick could also be more involved in the passing game since the Falcons have struggled against pass-catching backs. Stafford can still be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues, while Abdullah and Riddick would have more value in point-per-receptions leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick totals 12 touches

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:51:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for 20 yards while added three receptions for 17 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: With Ameer Abdullah back to 100 percent health, Riddick will have to share the touches in the Detroit backfield. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal in most standard fantasy formats, but he is a solid RB3 or flex play in most PPR leagues. The Lions host the Falcons in Week 3.
