Detroit Lions news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 10:49:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: In Stafford's ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) defense, he has faced some pretty stout defenses to begin the 2015 season. Plus, the Lions haven't been able to get anything going on the ground, which has made it extremely difficult to stretch opponents through the air. Another tough matchup looms in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. It's probably wise to fade him in daily games for another week.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% off cap) was injured much of last year, but now that he's fully healthy, his owners are expecting much more. The Detroit offense under Joe Lombardi isn't taking nearly as many downfield shots at their best playmaker, though, and it's limiting Johnson and his owners. Another tough matchup in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals and shutdown corner Patrick Peterson means it could be another frustrating week for Megatron.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) seems questionable against the Arizona Cardinals. Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) would be a nice flyer on FantasyScore if Ebron can't suit up.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) seems questionable against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5. Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) would be a nice flyer on FantasyScore if Ebron can't suit up.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has six total touches, but it was rather disappointing considering Joique Bell was inactive and Riddick's workload didn't improve all that much. He cannot be trusted in FantasyScore.

Detroit Lions TE Tim Wright took over as the primary tight end in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Oct. 5, after TE Eric Ebron (knee) left with an injury. Wright had a 26-yard reception on his only catch. He was targeted twice.
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could be forced into the starting lineup if Ebron is forced to miss time and Brandon Pettigrew remains sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) hasn't found the end zone in four games, and is an overpriced option in FantasyScore until he starts to score regularly.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 21:42:18 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson had seven receptions for 56 yards in the Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he was also credited with a lost fumble when SS Kam Chancellor poked away a ball from Johnson near the goal line and it was batted out of the end zone for a touchback.
Fantasy Tip: The controversial play will be talked about ad nauseum. Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) nearly had a much better stat line. Things do not look to get easier for Megatron in Week 5 when the Arizona Cardinals come calling.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 21:41:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Abdullah ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had a difficult matchup and the rookie looked overwhelmed. It won't get much easier in Week 5 when the Arizona Cardinals pay a visit to Ford Field, so avoid the rookie in FantasyScore then too.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 21:41:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stafford ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and the Detroit offense managed zero touchdowns, although they came awfully close in the final seconds of the game when Calvin Johnson fumbled at the goal line. At this point Stafford cannot be trusted in FantasyScore, regardless of price.

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 18:24:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Ebron ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be back. If he cannot, Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is the only other healthy tight end on the roster.
