Lions | DeAndre Levy expected to contribute

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 05:05:14 -0700

Lions | Mathew Stafford expects different offense

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 20:55:12 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said he expects to lean on the running game a little more in 2016 with WR Calvin Johnson now retired. "I think it'll make us different," he said Thursday, July 28. "It's on us to make it more dangerous. We got to go out there and make the plays."

Fantasy Tip: It's tough to gauge how Stafford will perform without Johnson leading the passing attack, but he should still be viewed as a high-end QB2.

Lions | Golden Tate wants to return punts

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 18:50:29 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate has expressed his interest in continuing to serve as the club's primary punt returner this season. He averaged 7.5 yards per return in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is expected to be the team's No. 1 receiver following the retirement of Calvin Johnson and he has actually led the Lions in receptions over the past two seasons. However, Detroit may want to avoid using him on special teams because he is such a valuable part of their offense. WRs T.J. Jones, Jeremy Kerley and Andre Roberts also have plenty of experience returning punts and could compete for the role during the preseason.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah limited Friday

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 16:49:50 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) was wearing a no-contact jersey during practice Friday, July 29. Abdullah said he is taking things day-to-day but is confident that he will be where he needs to be at the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah probably will be limited for several practices because the team wants him to be healthy for Week 1. He probably will be part of a committee at running back but is the favorite to start. Owners in most leagues should consider him a No. 3 running back at this point.

Lions | T.J. Jones relegated to backup offense

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:32:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones ran with the second-team offense during practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was in the running to be the slot receiver before Anquan Boldin signed with Detroit. Jones is now more of a wait-and-see fantasy option than late-round flier, but he's still a receiver to keep tabs on leading into the season.

Lions | Anquan Boldin working out of the slot

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:24:18 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin spent a lot of time with the first-team offense with most of his repetitions as the slot receiver Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin has limited fantasy upside, but he's a potential target at the end of drafts with more value in PPR settings. His fantasy floor could also come in handy during bye weeks. Just remember, though, this is his 14th season in the league and a long way past his prime.

Lions | Eric Ebron earns praise from Matt Stafford

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 13:46:49 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron is more mature, according to QB Matthew Stafford. "He's a guy that wants to put the work in," Stafford said. "I'm expecting a lot of good things from him."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is poised to take a big leap forward in his third season, and while the recent acquisition of WR Anquan Boldin could cut into a few of his targets, Ebron is still in line for a breakout campaign. He's a great target toward the end of drafts as a starting tight end, and there's upside for him to finish the year having provided a high-end return at the position.

Lions | Anquan Boldin contract update

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 11:54:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $2.75 million. The deal includes a $750,000 signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin should have a solid role in the passing game this season and can be a late-round option in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah making progress

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 10:28:24 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) is making progress in his recovery from a shoulder injury and should be ready to practice since he was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah probably will be the starting running back for the Lions in 2016, but he will be sharing touches with several other running backs during the season. He should be considered a No. 3 running back at this point.

Lions | Anquan Boldin to move around

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 10:19:41 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin will initially see playing time as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin should have a decent role in the passing game for the Lions this season but will not be the focal point like he has been in the past. Owners in most leagues should consider Boldin as a late-round option in their drafts.
