Fantasy Tip: Jones had a decent outing in Week 12 with 54 yards, but he has posted at least 55 yards in only one of his last seven games. Jones should have a favorable matchup in Week 13 and can be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should be able to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has been a factor in the running and passing game and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: There are no indications that Riddick will be missing this game, as long as he doesn't have any setbacks between now and kickoff. He's one of the more underrated running backs this week as he should be heavily involved in the passing game in what could be a shootout with the New Orleans Saints. He has high-end RB2 upside in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has been somewhat dormant since the first few weeks of the season, but facing the New Orleans Saints is a prime opportunity for a rebound. Most position players in this contest are startable, Jones included. View him as a WR3 with WR2 potential.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick had an off week last week, but he's primed for a rebound performance in a great matchup versus the New Orleans Saints. He should continue to split time in the running game, but his value in the passing game makes him an RB2 option in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions' matchup with the New Orleans Saints is one of the most promising games of the week. Jones has been quiet since making himself known earlier in the year, but he should not be overlooked in what could be a high-scoring affair. If he's active, he should be started as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn’t sound promising for Abdullah to return and help fantasy owners anytime soon. If you had plans on that happening, it might be time to abandon that and move on to Plan B.

Detroit Lions S Miles Killebrew has thrived recently on third down as a hybrid linebacker/safety near the line of scrimmage, totaling nine tackles despite logging only 21 snaps over the last two weeks. Still, there are no plans to expand his role, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick and the rest of the offense were definitely in one of their tougher matchups of the year against the Minnesota Vikings. He'll continue to lead the Lions in touches out of the backfield as long as he's healthy, though. Don't be terribly discouraged by this outing.
