Fantasy Tip: Riddick would share time with Bush and Joique Bell but has earn some playing time since he has produced in the running and passing game. Riddick would be a flex option for owners in some weeks and would be valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he "definitely expects to play" against the Miami Dolphins after the team's bye week. Johnson has missed the last three games due to a high right ankle sprain. WR Golden Tate has 24 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns in Johnson's absence.
Fantasy Tip: As soon as Johnson returns to action, he should be returned to fantasy lineups. Tate won't completely disappear, but his value is likely at it's peak for this season.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) isn't certain to return this season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Fairley is dealing with a sprained knee, but there is hope that he can return in four to five weeks. Fairley had to be helped off the field in Week 8, and he was placed on a cart and taken to the locker room. He had 14 tackles and a sack through eight games.

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) suffered a knee injury during the team's 22-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons, and coach Jim Caldwell is not optimistic about his status. "I'm not quite certain where he is right now," Caldwell said after the game. "But obviously, when you're carried off the field, it's not the greatest news. We'll see what the doctors say about him." Caldwell did not speculate if he thought the injury could be season-ending.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have a lot of injuries at the position, so expect Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) and Golden Tate ($6,900; 13.8%) to receive heavier attention on offense. No Lions tight end is worth using on FantasyScore today.

Fantasy Tip: Golden Tate ($6,900; 13.8% of your cap) is a good start at WR2 on FantasyScore against the Atlanta Falcons. However, he needs someone to step up to take the defensive focus off of him due to all of the injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4%) becomes an even better play on FantasyScore today. With Bush, Megatron and two tight ends out, he should have a heavy load.
