Lions | Up-tempo offense helps Detroit

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 10:31:12 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford and the offense operated at quicker pace in their Week 13 win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Nov. 27, and they were able 474 yards of total offense. Stafford went 34-for-45 for 390 yards and two touchdowns, and he appeared much more comfortable in the offense. His 75.6 completion percentage was the fourth best of his career. Stafford was also at his best against the blitz, completing a career-high 14 passes for a career-high 200 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford had a great matchup against the Bears, and he could have the momentum he needs to finish out the year strong, especially since he'll be facing some more weak secondaries in the weeks to come.

Lions | Reggie Bush inactive

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 08:09:21 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive Thursday, Nov. 27, for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) is a decent RB2 on FantasyScore this week. Theo Riddick ($3,400; 6.8%) could be a value flex option as well.

Lions | Reggie Bush out for Week 13

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 07:09:43 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is out for Week 13 Thursday, Nov. 27. His ankle isn't responding well enough, but the hope is to return for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) and Theo Riddick ($3,400; 6.8%) will split work again. Bell has the edge because of his receiving skills, but Riddick could be a solid flex if the Lions try to run the time of possession game.

Lions | Reggie Bush questionable

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 13:48:34 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) was limited in practice for the third straight day Wednesday, Nov. 26, and is questionable for Week 13 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Bush could be another game-time decision tomorrow as the team practices caution with him. Bush ($4,900) isn't the most sound investment at FantasyScore, even if he plays. There's too much potential for disappointment here.

Lions | Calvin Johnson says he's the same guy

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:51:09 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson hasn't been putting up big numbers this season, but he denies that he's starting to decline. He's on pace to finish with fewer than 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since 2009, but he continues to say that he's the same player he was when he set the single-season record for receiving yards two years ago. "I think that the biggest thing you can kind of just take a look at is does he still run by people?" head coach Jim Caldwell said. "The answer to that would be yes. Is he still able to lay out, catch the ball and do things that he normally does? Yes. And I think that that's what matters." Since returning from a sprained ankle, Johnson has also faced three of the league's top defenses.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been a disappointment to fantasy owners, sure, but his schedule is lightening up at the right time for the fantasy playoffs in standard leagues. In Week 13, he should be worth his $7,900 FantasyScore price against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving. Expect Megatron to bust out and feast.

Lions | Reggie Bush also has back injury

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 16:44:07 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 25, with a back injury added to his status. Bush missed the last two games with an ankle injury. There was no further information on his back ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Bush has already said he'll play Thursday, Nov. 27, but the injuries could hinder him, especially since the back injury is a new development. If he does play, he could very well be limited and probably isn't worth the $4,900 gamble on FantasyScore.

Lions | Limited practice for Reggie Bush

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 14:01:19 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bush vows to return Thursday against the Chicago Bears. How many touches will he have if he comes back, though, with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick also being used? It's tough to say, and Bush probably doesn't justify his $4,900 FantasyScore price.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited Tuesday

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 13:59:00 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 25, after sitting out Monday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been pretty mediocre since his return from injury. However, you should be willing to pay for a bounceback at FantasyScore, even with Megatron costing you $7,900. The Chicago Bears have been very generous to receivers all year long.

Lions | Tuesday practice report

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 13:55:11 -0800

Lions | Reggie Bush says he'll play

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 12:10:28 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he'll be ready to play Thursday, Nov. 27, after missing Week 12 with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bush will still be splitting time with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick and could be on a snap count coming off the injury. He's a risky play at a price of $4,900 on FantasyScore.
