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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah (ankle), LB DeAndre Levy (quadriceps), DE Devin Taylor (ankle) and LB Antwione Williams (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron didn't practice yesterday, so the limited status is a positive sign. The Green Bay Packers have been susceptible to tight ends, too, yielding nearly 150 yards and two touchdowns to the position in two games. Ebron is a borderline TE1 for Week 3.
