Fantasy Tip: Ebron should receive more targets because of the receiver situation and could become a focal point in the passing game. He probably will be a late-round option in most leagues and will be a No. 2 tight end or low-end starter in deeper leagues.

Mississippi DE Robert Nkemdiche is a red-flag player, according to Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn. Quinn said the Lions must consider his value compared to the risk involved in possibly drafting him. Nkemdiche's draft stock has taken a hit this offseason. He has admitted to being a lazy player and has also been arrested.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has had his ups and downs with the Lions over the years. He has always flirted with being a borderline QB1 and a high-end QB2. The loss of Calvin Johnson really hurts his fantasy value, obviously, so it might be safer to take him more as a high-end QB2.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford is hopeful he still has a hot hand after he exploded for 20 touchdowns, to only four interceptions, and a 105.1 passer rating in nine games with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter last season.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford is losing Megatron this season, but they added Marvin Jones to a stable that includes Golden Tate and a budding Eric Ebron. Stafford is right on that low-end QB1/high-end QB2 seesaw in fantasy.
