Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4%) would be the primary tight ends if Eric Ebron ($4,900, 9.8%) is unable to play. This situation will need to be monitored throughout the week.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) wasn't playing well even when he was healthy. There's no reason to start him if he plays and is coming off an injury.

Fantasy Tip: If Ebron ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) isn't able to play this weekend, Brandon Pettigrew ($2,000, 4.0%) and Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4%) would likely see more playing time. They are unreliable however, and should only be rostered on FantasyScore in order to spend more at other positions.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will likely be questionable against the Arizona Cardinals but could still play and serve as a midrange TE on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: If he plays, Pettigrew ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be in for a bigger role with Eric Ebron ailing. Pettigrew would likely split playing time with Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4%) if Ebron is out. Don't expect much from Pettigrew or Wright, however.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford was just 1-for-5 for 15 yards when targeting WR Calvin Johnson on passes at least 10 yards downfield in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Oct. 5. On the season he's 5-for-18 targeting Johnson on throws of that distance.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't get any easier this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals and shutdown corner Patrick Peterson, who will likely be matched up on Megatron. Fading both Stafford ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) is probably the preferred daily strategy for another week.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford was held to just 183 passing yards when he faced the Arizona Cardinals last season. In three career starts against the Cardinals, Stafford is 66-for-106 (56.9%) for 707 yards, two touchdowns, four interceptions and a passer rating of 66.3. He faces Arizona in Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) and the Lions are looking for their first win of the season, and they have yet to hit a stride on offense. It could happen this weekend but is unlikely against a very aggressive and good Cardinals defense. Look to fade Stafford yet again in daily contests.

Fantasy Tip: In Stafford's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) defense, he has faced some pretty stout defenses to begin the 2015 season. Plus, the Lions haven't been able to get anything going on the ground, which has made it extremely difficult to stretch opponents through the air. Another tough matchup looms in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. It's probably wise to fade him in daily games for another week.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% off cap) was injured much of last year, but now that he's fully healthy, his owners are expecting much more. The Detroit offense under Joe Lombardi isn't taking nearly as many downfield shots at their best playmaker, though, and it's limiting Johnson and his owners. Another tough matchup in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals and shutdown corner Patrick Peterson means it could be another frustrating week for Megatron.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) seems questionable against the Arizona Cardinals. Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) would be a nice flyer on FantasyScore if Ebron can't suit up.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has six total touches, but it was rather disappointing considering Joique Bell was inactive and Riddick's workload didn't improve all that much. He cannot be trusted in FantasyScore.
