Lions | Joseph Fauria out for OTAs

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 19:06:45 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) will not participate in organized team activities (OTAs) due to the ankle injury he has been battling since September. However, he is expected to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen whether Fauria will have any fantasy appeal this season. Remember, Eric Ebron is on the club and projected to do big things, so Fauria's role shouldn't be too large initially.

Lions | Corey Fuller to be third WR?

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 19:03:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Corey Fuller is projected to be the team's third wide receiver, according to beat writer Dave Birkett.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller is projected to be ahead of T.J. Jones and the recovering Ryan Broyles, among others. It remains to be seen if this prediction will come true, but Fuller could emerge as a sleeper in deeper fantasy leagues.

Lions | Rashean Mathis to move to safety?

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 14:47:09 -0700

Detroit Lions CB Rashean Mathis could move to safety at some point in order to prolong his career. Mathis, however, still thinks of himself as a cornerback and doesn't want to think of his career as being near the end. "I wasn't looking at the ending as an ending," Mathis said. "I think that's why I was able to play very good football. And I don't want anything less out of me."

Lions | Joique Bell not taking role for granted

Sun, 31 May 2015 16:50:51 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell said he is not assuming he is going to be the starting back in 2015. "I don't plan out the roles," Bell said during OTAs. "I go out to do what the team needs."

Fantasy Tip: Although Bell's status as the power back seems safe, the duo of Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah will likely prevent him from being a true workhorse back. On the plus side, he should see a bulk of the work around the goal line, and he should be a solid RB2.

Lions | Teammate high on Theo Riddick

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:08:57 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick should have a solid role in the offense this upcoming season because of his ability, according to QB Dan Orlovsky. "Theo's too good to not put on the field," Orlovsky said. "Theo has stuff that you can't coach, that you can't teach, that you're born from God with. He just has an ability to get open better than everyone else." Orlovsky said he believes Riddick can have 60 catches in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick likely will not start for the Lions this season but could be a weapon in the passing game. Riddick likely will have more value in point-per-reception leagues and could be an option in late rounds in those leagues. He could also be a depth option in standard leagues.

Lions | Lance Moore excited to be in Detroit

Thu, 28 May 2015 17:24:26 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore is excited to be back in the offense led by Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi. "This is the offense I had the most success in in my career," said Moore. "I played in this offense for eight years and I think Joe Lombardi was there six or seven of those years that I was there," Moore said Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is likely to win one of the final two spots in the Lions' wide receiver corps. Moore shouldn't be a consideration in fantasy drafts, but he could become an option on FantasyScore, if the Lions suffer some injuries to their receiver group.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah contract breakdown

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:29:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah signed a four-year, $4.16 million rookie contract that includes $2.29 million in guaranteed money. He received a $1.28 million signing bonus. Abdullah's 2015 and 2016 salaries are fully guaranteed at $435,000 and $573,915, respectively. He will receive a $50,000 reporting bonus in 2015 and workout bonuses of $50,000 in 2017 and 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah will battle Theo Riddick for third-down work, but pass protection may be the dictating factor in his playing time. Detroit will split time among their running backs, and seeing a three-way rotation is not out of the question. Abdullah is a late-round flier in PPR leagues for now.

Lions | Lance Moore contract details

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:22:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore signed a one-year contract worth $1.05 million. He will earn a base salary of $970,000 after receiving a $40,000 signing bonus. Moore will receive a $40,000 roster bonus if he makes the Lions' Week 1 roster. Earning the minimum salary benefit means Moore will count $655,000 against Detroit's 2015 salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is hardly a lock to make the team, but he could have fleeting fantasy value with the right matchups if he does land a top-three receiver spot. He's a better DFS play on FantasyScore than a traditional draft choice.
