Lions | Marvin Jones to be under microscope

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:48:58 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones will be under the microscope during training camp and the preseason as the team sees how fluid he looks in a system that could reward his skill set.

Fantasy Tip: Jones certainly will not be able to replace the retired Calvin Johnson, but he will try to pair with Golden Tate and Eric Ebron to give the team a handful of reliable targets. Jones is worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in the middle to late rounds on draft day, as he could enjoy great success in Motown.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah continues to recover

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:47:08 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery to repair his labrum, but the team expects him to be ready for training camp. He has ascended to the No. 1 spot on the team's depth chart and will be tasked with a significant amount of pass protection, which isn't ideal given his smallish frame.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah is the No. 1 back, and with the threat of an Arian Foster signing in the rear-view mirror, the second-year back out of Nebraska is a low-end RB2 or solid RB3 for most fantasy rosters as long as he can get healthy and stay healthy.

Lions | Offensive line meshing in Motown

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:46:03 -0700

The Detroit Lions have three first-round picks in OT Taylor Decker, OT Riley Reiff and OG Laken Tomlinson along their offensive line, and third-round picks with C Travis Swanson and OG Larry Warford starting, and OL Graham Glasgow waiting in the wings with free-agent addition OL Geoff Schwartz also in the mix.

Lions | Arian Foster to work out for Detroit

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 18:46:22 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) is scheduled to work out for the Detroit Lions later this week, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is going to see his draft stock rise when he signs with a team, but temper expectations. He has potential as a late-round flier, but it remains to be seen how much he has left in the tank.

Lions | Stevan Ridley the favorite for No. 3

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:01:30 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 running back position behind RBs Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, according to Tim Twentyman of detroitlions.com. Ridley would provide a change of pace from Abdullah and Riddick, but he'll still have to prove himself after missing most of the offseason with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley may vulture a touchdown here and there when the Lions are in goal-line situations, but he can mostly be avoided as long as Abdullah and Riddick are healthy.

Lions | Nevin Lawson might start

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 12:44:38 -0700

Detroit Lions CB Nevin Lawson could take over the second starting cornerback position if he shows up well in training camp. Lawson played his way into the starting lineup last season, which may help his cause. CB Darius Slay is the Lions' unquestioned top cornerback.

Lions | Tighter snap count for Haloti Ngata?

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 21:16:14 -0700

Detroit Lions DT Haloti Ngata hasn't played a full 16-game schedule since 2011, and beat writer Dave Birkett believes the Lions need to monitor Ngata's snap count in 2016 in order to keep him healthy and productive.

Lions | Several candidates for backup RB role

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 04:43:43 -0700

The Detroit Lions will have several candidates in mind to complement RB Ameer Abdullah on the field. In contention for the second running back role are RB Stevan Ridley, RB Zach Zenner, and RB George Winn.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley's fantasy value goes up and down depending on the situation he is in. Zenner was explosive last year without getting hurt, and Winn is a local favorite much like Joique Bell (Wayne State) was for a couple seasons. Whoever gets this job could see some action, so monitor it closely.

Lions | Zach Zenner could be power back

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:10:10 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner is the early frontrunner to fill the power back role behind RB Ameer Abdullah, according to beat writer Justin Rogers.

Fantasy Tip: If Zenner does carve out a steady role in the offense, he will be an excellent grab in the later rounds. Abdullah could be a few fumbles away from riding the bench.

Lions | Jake Rudock has a lot to learn

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 20:29:15 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock doesn't have control of any phase of the game yet, according to head coach Jim Caldwell, but Caldwell added that Rudock is diligent and developing and is "going to be alright."

Lions | T.J. Jones could start in the slot

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 19:34:25 -0700

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones has seen plenty of practice times as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during the offseason, and he been able to create consistent separation.

Fantasy Tip: There will be a lot of extra targets to go around in the Detroit passing game with Calvin Johnson out of the picture. Jones is worth keeping an eye on.

Lions | Zach Zenner must prove he is ready

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 19:12:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner (rib, lung) is expected to receive plenty of carries this preseason to prove he is physically recovered from last year's injuries and ready to handle live tackling.

Fantasy Tip: Zenner has a solid chance to emerge as Detroit's No. 3 running back, and he would become an interesting fantasy option if either Ameer Abdullah or Theo Riddick were to miss time.
