Detroit Lions news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Despite drawing the 'limited participant' tag, Jones should be fine to play in the team's Week 4 contest opposite the Chicago Bears. As long as he's healthy, the former Cincinnati Bengal can be leaned upon in a plus matchup, with him emerging as the decisive No. 1 wide-out in Detroit in the early going. Of course, though, owners should keep an eye on his status in the coming days.

Detroit Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) and LB DeAndre Levy (quad) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29, while CB Adairius Barnes (ankle), TE Eric Ebron (ankle), DEs Wallace Gilberry (abdomen) and Devin Taylor (ankle), OT Riley Reiff (ankle), LB Antwione Williams (hamstring) and S Tavon Wilson (neck) were limited participants.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: In his second try with Detroit, there are still not enough targets to go around for Dobson to have fantasy relevance. He can be left on the waiver wire.

Fantasy Tip: Washington showed some flashes behind questionable line play, and his role is growing. He'll be a flex option against the Chicago Bears this week.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick had just nine yards on 10 carries last week, but he's a capable receiver out of the backfield. He'll be a flex consideration against the Chicago Bears this week.

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.

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.
Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:29:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Washington, a rookie, is a weak RB3 option at best. The Lions' running game is definitely in flux and it is not known where Detroit will head next.
Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:24:28 -0700
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.
