Fantasy Tip: Johnson tends to be limited every week, but he still ends up playing. Still, an eye should be kept on both Johnson and Ebron as they're both dealing with a short week. Johnson has a great matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, but, for Ebron, Philly has only allowed two touchdowns to tight ends in 10 games this season.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a friendly matchup, Ebron failed to make an impact. He continues to fade after a strong start, and he has been held under 30 receiving yards in four of his last five games. He isn't a starting-caliber option at FantasyScore right now.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah had his most carries since Week 6, and it looks like he is out of the doghouse for now. If he can keep his fumbling issues under control, he could take the reins of the Detroit backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been quiet in recent weeks, but he is worth a look as a cheaper option at the position against such a friendly matchup.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) and RB Joique Bell (shoulder) are both probable against the Oakland Raiders in Week 11. Johnson was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 20, while Bell practiced in full.
Fantasy Tip: Megatron ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should be just fine and has a great opportunity against the weak Raiders corners. Stacking him with Matthew Stafford on FantasyScore is a fine strategy. Bell ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is part of a frustrating three-headed monster of a backfield, but this could be the week to use him as a sleeper against a top-10 fantasy matchup against the run.

Detroit Lions DT Gabe Wright (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders. S Don Carey (back) and CB Nevin Lawson (concussion) are questionable, while DE Ziggy Ansah (toe), DE Jason Jones (non-injury), P Sam Martin (back) and S Glover Quin (ankle) are probable. Wright didn't practice Friday, Nov. 20. Carey and Lawson were limited, while the others practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) was used sparingly in the second half against the Green Bay Packers in Week 10, and while he is the most talented back Detroit has, he is too risky to use at FantasyScore until he earns back a larger role in the offense.

Detroit Lions DE Jason Jones (non-injury) and DT Gabe Wright (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 29. FS Don Carey (back) and CB Nevin Lawson (concussion) were limited during practice, while DE Ziggy Ansah (toe), P Sam Martin (back) and FS Glover Quin (ankle) fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) should be able to play against the Oakland Raiders in Week 11, but he has not produced much this season. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) appears to be on track to play against the Oakland Raiders this week, but owners should keep an eye out on his status. He has posted solid numbers in each of the last four games and could be a solid starting option in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) faces an Oakland Raiders team that has struggled a little bit against WRs the last five weeks. He's a high-end WR2 on FantasyScore.
