Lions | Matthew Stafford expects to be fine

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 19:30:44 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) said his ankle wasn't 100 percent following a 30-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 23, but he expects to "be all right" going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to keep an eye on Stafford's status heading into a Week 13 meeting with the Baltimore Ravens. You may want to consider another option if it sounds like he will be less than 100 percent for the matchup.

Lions | Golden Tate quiet in Week 12

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 17:19:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught four passes for seven yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also rushed for 13 yards on two carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Tate was not able to get on track against the Vikings and has been held to 39 receiving yards in the last two games. He continues to be one of the top targets in the passing game for the Lions and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

Lions | Eric Ebron finishes with four catches

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 17:15:54 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron caught four passes for 34 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been fairly consistent for the past month in terms of his stats but does have one touchdown during that span. Owners probably should consider Ebron as a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Lions | Kenny Golladay catches two passes

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 17:11:12 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught two passes for 61 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Golladay appears to have taken over the team's No. 3 receiver role because of the amount of targets he received this week. He can be owned in deeper leagues but should be avoided next week.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah struggles in running game

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 17:07:26 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed for 14 yards on six carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also caught three passes for 29 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Abullah received a majority of the carries during the game but has to share the playing time with Theo Riddick. He will be facing a solid Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 13 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick posts 30 total yards

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:59:44 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed for 20 yards on five carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has been receiving under 10 touches per game for most of the season and has been limited to two catches for 14 yards in he last two games. He should still be used in the running and passing game but is not a must-start option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.

Lions | Minnesota mashed by Marvin Jones

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:40:52 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was really the lone bright spot for the Lions on offense. He scored their only two touchdowns, including a masterful catch on a deep ball in double-coverage. With five touchdowns in his last four games, Jones is a mainstay in WR2 territory.

Lions | Matthew Stafford underwhelms in loss

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:35:42 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford gutted out a 250-yard, two-touchdown performance in a loss to the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 23. Unfortunately, he also committed two turnovers (one fumble and one interception).

Fantasy Tip: Stafford was clicking with Marvin Jones in this contest, but that's about it. He was frequently under pressure and suffered an ankle injury late in the game, but came back in. Despite the disappointing outing, he remains a QB1 option for the rest of 2017.

Lions | Matthew Stafford stays in game

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 12:45:45 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) remained in the game Thursday, Nov. 23, after suffering an ankle injury on a touchdown pass to WR Marvin Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford will toughen it out after what appeared to be a nasty injury on a low hit. He has played well so far and should be viewed as a borderline QB1 for the remainder of the season.
