Lions | Dan Orlovsky might not return

Matthew Stafford and Jake Rudock are the only other quarterbacks on the team's roster, so another NFL veteran or college prospect is likely to be brought in if Orlovsky does not return.

Lions | Barry Sanders believes in Ameer Abdullah

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 17:48:11 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah has the "potential" to develop into an every-down back, according to retired RB Barry Sanders.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have derailed Abdullah's career thus far, but he has shown some promise in his limited playing time. If Detroit doesn't spend a high pick on a back, Abdullah could reach RB2 status in 2017.

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 19:28:57 -0800

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin said he is looking forward to seeing what opportunities present themselves in free agency and is in no hurry to decide his future.

Lions | Zach Zenner established himself in 2016

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 09:48:14 -0800

Lions RB Zach Zenner finished with 334 yards on 88 carries for the year and a team-high four rushing touchdowns, leading the team in rushing the last three weeks of the season. Even though Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick are expected to be completely healthy by the start of 2017, WR Anquan Boldin said in a recent interview Zenner could handle a growing role. "I think he's a guy that definitely will take the next step next year. … Whenever you have a young guy like that who is able to play every down, that's big. He's a guy that can run the ball effectively, catch the ball out of the backfield, he can pick up blitzes," Boldin said.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah should remain the odds-on favorite to open camp as the starter. However, Zenner flashed enough ability as a runner and receiver down the stretch to be used to be used in tandem with him if Detroit chooses to do so. Riddick should return to his usual role of "space back". Abdullah and Riddick should be considered low-end RB2 options next season, while Zenner can be considered a valuable handcuff.

Lions | Miles Killebrew ticketed for bigger role?

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 09:20:00 -0800

Detroit Lions S Miles Killebrew was able to carve out a role as a rookie in 2016, showing enough physicality to line up inside the box and enough speed to cover tight ends. As a result, FS Glover Quin suggested in a recent interview that Killebrew was the player on the Lions' defense most likely to break out in 2017.

Lions | Anquan Boldin unsure about future

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 17:19:48 -0800

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin said he is not sure if he will play in 2017 but would be open to re-signing with the Lions if he does continue to play.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin posted 584 yards and eight touchdowns this season and probably would receive interest from multiple teams if he decides to play in 2017. Owners should monitor the situation because Boldin could be a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receivers depending on his role.
