Lions | Team to get creative with defensive line

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 10:24:28 -0700

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh said the team is going to have fun with how the defense is used in 2014. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin plans to get creative with how he uses the defensive line. "We're going to have a lot of fun going against offenses and our defensive line play is going to be very similar but at the same time very different," Suh said. "That will be for those offensive lines to figure out; not going to give any secrets away right now but we're going to have some fun out there."

Lions | Teammate high on Theo Riddick

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 10:18:25 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick looked good during offseason workouts and could be a Pro Bowler if he continues to improve, according to RB Joique Bell. "The only thing I can say is he's going to keep learning and keep getting better. He keeps doing what he's been doing, he'll be a Pro Bowler in no time. I was thinking down the line, but he definitely has the potential to be a great running back in this league," Bell said.

Lions | Eric Ebron says timing with QB is great

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:51:55 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said in a Tuesday, July 8 interview that his timing with QB Matthew Stafford has been great. Ebron said Stafford has a good understanding of how Ebron can help the team.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news in the fantasy football realm, but Ebron is still one of three main tight ends on the Lions with Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria also in the mix. He's only worth a late-round stash in standard leagues.

Lions | Joique Bell back to full strength

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 12:21:09 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) said he is back to running at full speed and is feeling fully healthy. "I'm making a lot of progress, a lot of progress," Bell said. "Actually started back running full speed, got cleared for full go probably two weeks, a week after minicamp. I'm feeling 100%. I'm feeling great."

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Bell as all signs now point for him to be ready for the start of training camp. Bell is a low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Lions | Ryan Broyles looks in shape

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 14:35:48 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is always in the workout room and looks to be in great shape, according to teammates. Broyles has made good strides this offseason but has admitted in the past that he's still working on his speed.

Fantasy Tip: It's too early to gauge Broyles' health, and therefore too risky to draft him in any league format. If he has a good training camp and preseason, he may be worth a deep stash.

Lions | Theo Riddick receives praise from teammate

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 12:11:06 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick could surprise some people this season, according to teammate QB Dan Orlovsky. Orlovsky said Riddick has "really, really good vision and suddenness," adding that he'd be surprised if Riddick doesn't get 50 catches.

Fantasy Tip: Orlovsky seems to have turned a blind eye to the rest of his team's backfield. RBs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell are the unquestioned No. 1 and No. 2 running backs for the Lions. Riddick may be a deeper option really, really deep leagues, but, barring an injury to Bush or Bell, he's not draftable in standard leagues.
