Lions | Theo Riddick expects to be ready for camp

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 16:31:03 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) expects to be ready for the start of training camp but it is not known if he will be limited during the early part of camp. Riddick's surgically repaired wrists are structurally sound, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick missed all of the offseason workouts because of his wrists but probably will receive some work during the preseason. He likely will be used as mostly a receiver out of the backfield but will also receive some carries during the season. He will be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues and can be a No. 3 running back or flex option for owners.

Lions | Steve Longa a wild card

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 07:20:37 -0700

Detroit Lions LB Steve Longa is one to watch in training camp, according to beat writer Michael Rothstein. The team has bigger financial investments in players above him on the depth chart, which could hurt his chances at making the team.

Lions | Matthew Stafford to receive extension soon?

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 16:16:13 -0700

The Detroit Lions are talking with QB Matthew Stafford about a contract extension, and there is internal optimism at the team's headquarters that an agreement could be reached within the next two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford likely will look to sign a deal similar to the one Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr received earlier this offseason. He has thrown for at least 4,200 yards in each of the last six seasons and posted 56 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Stafford will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with again in 2017 and should be considered a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Lions | Internal optimism for Matthew Stafford deal

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:18:59 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford could sign a new deal in the next two weeks as there is internal optimism a deal gets done, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has turned the corner under offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter and was in the MVP race until a finger injury curtailed his production last season. Stafford is among the glut of QBs just shy of the elite tier as a QB1.

Lions | Calvin Johnson's return could put Lions in bind

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 08:30:51 -0700

Former Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson, if he decided to come out of retirement, could force the team to release him. Johnson's old salary would count against the team's cap. According to Spotrac, Johnson cleared over $11 million in salary cap space when he retired, which would put the Lions over the threshold.

Lions | Calvin Johnson invited to camp

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 09:17:25 -0700

Retired WR Calvin Johnson was invited to training camp by the Detroit Lions team president Rod Wood told WJR Radio.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron has stated that he was physically taxed and hasn't seemed willing to return. With the Lions in contention now, there could be hope that he returns. It's a long shot, and he probably wouldn't be more than a low-end WR3 if he returned.

Lions | Golden Tate supports Matthew Stafford

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 18:30:46 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford needs a contract extension as soon as possible, according to WR Golden Tate. "They gotta get that done," Tate said "He deserves it. He does everything right. You don't have to worry about him getting in trouble. He balls-out. He's tough as nails. He's what you want in a quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Tate has enjoyed plenty of success catching passes from Stafford, so it is no surprise that he is a believer. Stafford enters the season as a dependable QB1, and Tate is a quality WR2.
