Lions | Marvin Jones unhappy with season

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 19:22:31 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones was disappointed with how his season turned out, admitting, "In terms of my standards, it wasn't good at all." He added, "When you look at how I started, you wouldn't think it would end this way."

Fantasy Tip: He has a point, as through the first four weeks of the campaign, Jones was second to only Julio Jones for most receiving yards in the league. However, the former Cincinnati Bengal should also take away positives from this year, as he did manage to record a career-high 930 yards to go with 55 catches and four touchdowns in 15 games. Jones has the potential to be a fine WR3 option next season.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah still confident

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 14:29:31 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) has not lost his confidence despite missing most of the 2016 season with a foot injury and subsequent surgery. Abdullah believes he will still be a premier running back in the NFL. "It just takes patience," Abdullah said. "It takes prayer, it takes diligence, and coming from this injury -- these injuries in the last year it's just that much more important to me."

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah and Theo Riddick both suffered their fair share of injuries in 2016, paving the way for Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington. Abdullah and Riddick should take back their committee roles, though, assuming they are fully healthy this upcoming offseason. Riddick remains an RB2 candidate in PPR leagues for 2017, while Abdullah is in the RB3 to RB4 range.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah will be ready

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 08:53:38 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) said Monday, Jan. 9, that he intends to be ready for spring workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah has been a tease in his first two seasons, and if he can stay on the field, he has the talent to be one of the better running backs in the game. Such luster will peg him as an RB2 in next year's drafts.

Lions | Matthew Stafford hasn't had contract talks

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 08:44:49 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said he hasn't been approached by the team about a contract extension yet.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford is signed through 2017 with a $22 million cap number next season. He has really trimmed down the turnovers the last year-and-a-half under offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. He was having a great year before a finger injury derailed him. He'll be a midrange QB1 option in fantasy next season.

Lions | Theo Riddick in a cast

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 08:30:09 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) had his left wrist in a hard cast Monday, Jan. 9, but he said he hasn't had surgery on it.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick had 53 catches for 371 yards and five scores through the air, and he had a 92-357-1 rushing line. It's not a lock that he'll be used as frequently as he was this season with the late-season emergence of Zach Zenner and the return of Ameer Abdullah (foot). At best, he'll be an RB3 in PPR leagues.

Lions | Anquan Boldin could play in 2017

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 15:36:13 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin said he hasn't discussed his playing future with his family but still has a lot of "passion" for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin finished with 67 catches and eight touchdowns in 2016, and if he does come back for another year, he can be a quality WR4 if he lands in the right offense.

Lions | Matthew Stafford held in check

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 20:44:51 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 18 of his 32 passes for 205 yards and no touchdowns in a 26-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford's receivers didn't do him any favors by dropping several passes, but there is no denying he wasn't the same quarterback after suffering a finger injury late in the year. He should be healed up for the start of the 2017 season, and Stafford should make a solid QB1.

Lions | Rest the only cure for Matthew Stafford

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 18:27:39 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford's (finger) injured finger can't be repaired with surgery, and his finger will need to be immobilized after the season in order to heal.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford was playing well before struggling in the final three games with the injured finger. He should be back at 100 percent for the start of 2017 and is a solid QB1 option after the elite players at the position are off the board.
