Lions | Theo Riddick plays starter's snaps

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 05:28:55 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick played in 45 of the 68 offensive snaps in Week 3. RB Dwayne Washington played in 25 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick had 10 rushes for just nine yards but caught seven balls for 39. Washington rushed 10 times for 38 yards, and he could start to see a bigger role. Riddick is an RB3, and Washington is a flex option against the Chicago Bears next week.

Lions | Marvin Jones strong at WR

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:33:30 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught six passes for 205 yards and scored two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions are looking for some identity at wide receiver in the post-Calvin Johnson era, and it helps that receivers like Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin and Jones are coming forward. Jones should be in your fantasy lineup, but you never know who will be the leader from week to week.

Lions | Dwayne Washington leads weak running game

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:29:51 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington ran 10 times for 38 yards in a 34-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Washington, a rookie, is a weak RB3 option at best. The Lions' running game is definitely in flux and it is not known where Detroit will head next.

Lions | Matthew Stafford solid in Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:24:28 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 385 yards and scored three touchdowns in his team's 34-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford led a furious second-half comeback that fell just short. He completed two-thirds of his passes and was effective more often than not. He remains a strong QB1 option in all fantasy leagues.

Lions | Marvin Jones posts 111 yards in first half

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 11:53:01 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught two passes for 111 yards and one touchdown in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones caught a 73-yard touchdown pass late in the first half and should continue to be a top target in the passing game. He should be a solid No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron playing in Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:49:40 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (back) is officially active for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has caught nine of his 12 targets this season and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. Ebron could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah could miss rest of season

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 08:04:56 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) could miss the remainder of the season due to a torn ligament in his left foot, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Theo Riddick will serve as the Lions' primary running back in Abdullah's absence and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats. RB Dwayne Washington is worth considering as a flex option in Week 3's game against the Green Bay Packers and RB Zach Zenner could also be in line to see increased playing time.

Lions | Ziggy Ansah will also miss Week 4

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 06:44:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions DL Ziggy Ansah (ankle) is expected to miss Week 4's game versus the Chicago Bears due to a high ankle sprain, according to a source. He has already been ruled out for Week 3's contest against the Green Bay Packers and will receive a second opinion on an MRI exam this week.

Lions | Three Lions players to miss Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:23:52 -0700

Lions | Zach Zenner could be involved Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:23:02 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner may serve as the team's goal-line back and possibly four-minute back during the absence of Ameer Abdullah, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein. Theo Riddick is still expected to see slightly more work, while Dwayne Washington is expected to absorb at least some of Abdullah's early-down role.

Fantasy Tip: Rothstein supports his case by saying Zenner is bigger than Riddick and has better ball security than Washington, but it's hard to believe Washington's new early-down workload will be so significant that he cannot continue to serve as the goal-line back as well. Zenner will likely be active on game day while Abdullah is away, but it's far from a lock he'll slide into Washington's old role.

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:43:05 -0700

Lions | Eric Ebron questionable

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:38:00 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron appears to be on track to play this week, but owners should keep an eye out on the inactive list before setting their lineup. He has recorded 99 yards and one touchdown in the first two games of the season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
