Lions | Marvin Jones to be active against Bears

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 23:56:29 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) will play against the Chicago Bears in Week 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a major uptick in targets last week, Jones still managed just 54 yards on four grabs and has topped 60 yards receiving only once in his last eight. Add the injury on top and Jones is a desperation flex option.

Lions | Eric Ebron listed as questionable

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:29:42 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been limited to four catches and 38 yards over the last two weeks but did post better options in the middle of the season. Owners in deeper leagues could consider Ebron as the low-end No. 1 tight end, but owners in standard leagues probably can find better options to use.

Lions | Marvin Jones' status in question

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:25:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was targeted 11 times in the last game but finished the game with four receptions for 54 yards. He will still have a role in the passing game but there are other options that probably will receive more targets. Jones could be a flex option in deeper leagues but should be passed over in most leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick questionable

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:21:06 -0800

Detroit Lions LB Theo Riddick (wrist) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should be fine for the game and will receive most of the work at running back despite the injury. He should be considered a decent No. 2 running back in all leagues because of his production in the passing game in addition to the running game.

Lions | Dwayne Washington limited in practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:35:32 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Just the fact that he's been able to practice is good news regarding his status for Sunday, after almost sustaining a lengthy injury in Week 13. Washington could potentially have sneaky good value opposite the Bears if Theo Riddick (wrist) sits out, so certainly monitor Detroit's running game leading up to kickoff. If either Washington or Riddick ends up on the sidelines, Zach Zenner would also get a boost.

Lions | Eric Ebron limited in practice again

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:29:01 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: After laying an egg on Thanksgiving, Ebron was able to somewhat bounce back with a four-catch effort this past Sunday, albeit for only 38 yards. He'll probably be able to suit up in the next game, though he'd be a low-end TE1 option if Marvin Jones (quadriceps) is able to return after missing Week 13.

Lions | Marvin Jones logs limited practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 14:20:35 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jones missed a crucial game for fantasy owners this past weekend, but it appears he's trending towards a return in Week 14. Even so, it's hard to trust him right now, as while the Lions have surged the past couple of months, winning seven of their last eight, Jones has topped 55 yards only once over that stretch, and he hasn't scored since Week 6. It's tough to see him turning it back around while playing at less than 100 percent.

Lions | Theo Riddick on the field

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 10:57:03 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was participating during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should be able to play in Week 14, but owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he suffers any setbacks. Riddick has not posted great numbers over the last few weeks but should still have a solid role in the offense. He can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Brandon Pettigrew to be released

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 20:59:15 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) is expected to be released soon. The team cleaned out his stall in the team's locker room and removed his nameplate. He was placed on the non-football injury list Tuesday, Dec. 6. He did not appear in a game in 2016 after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee last December.

Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew is healthy and likely to land with another organization. However, he isn't likely to have fantasy appeal until at least the 2017 season.
