Lions | Dwayne Washington to see more carries?

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:36:50 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington is likely to see more carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer Tim Twentyman. The Bears rank 30th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the week Washington either breaks out. Theo Riddick should remain heavily involved, but he is more of a receiving back. Both are flex options in fantasy.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:49:35 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has not missed any time because of the injury and has posted decent numbers in each of the first three games of the season. Ebron should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and could be a No. 1 tight end for owners.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick will enter a timeshare with RB Dwayne Washington, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

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

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.

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.

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.
