Lions | Eric Ebron likely out

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 06:08:53 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is likely out for Week 8, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Ebron missed practice again Friday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($3,300; 6.6% of your cap) probably wasn't worth the gamble on FantasyScore this weekend anyway. Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4%) receives a boost. At that price, he looks to be a great buy.

Lions | Reggie Bush day-to-day

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 11:31:15 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle), who missed practice Thursday, Oct. 23, said he will do his best to push through his injury and suit up for the team's Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London. "The ankle's good -- just taking it day by day," Bush said. "I'm trying to do my best to just be smart, make sure I'm healthy. Obviously I want to be out there on the field Sunday, and I'm going to do everything I can to be out there on the field Sunday, but I'm also going to be smart about it, too, so it feels good , practiced yesterday, and we'll see how it goes today."

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as though Bush isn't making any promises for this weekend. He ran only four times for 10 yards but added five catches for 22 yards in the Week 7 win. There's a good chance Bush will be used in a limited capacity again this weekend if he's not 100 percent. Consider him a flex option, at best, at FantasyScore for $6,000 (12.0% of cap).

Lions | Calvin Johnson encouraged with progress

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 10:21:45 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) has been more encouraged about the progress of his high right ankle sprain this week, even though he's been limited in practices so far. "Good. We're doing everything from straight-forward running to moving laterally as well," Johnson said. "Things are going good. We're moving in a positive direction." However, Johnson said a decision on whether he'll play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons could come down to a game-time decision in London. Head coach Jim Caldwell said the decision will come down to doctors.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless, Johnson is a considerable risk at FantasyScore for $7,500 (15.0% of cap). If he's active, though, you'll have a much easier time inserting him into your lineups. With Detroit's bye next week, the Lions surely won't test his injury too much.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 08:51:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Johnson has a chance to play in Week 8, but owners will know more about his status in the next day or two. Johnson could be limited if he is active for the game and may not be worth his $7,500 price tag on FantasyScore this week.

Lions | Eric Ebron sits

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:12:38 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) sat out of practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($3,300; 6.6% of your cap) probably isn't worth a flyer on FantasyScore if he's able to go this week.

Lions | Calvin Johnson increases practice load

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:12:05 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) did a lot more in practice Thursday, Oct. 23, as he was cutting and running routes.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron's activity in practice sheds a glimmer of hope for his status in Week 8. His $7,500 (15% of your cap) price tag on FantasyScore may still be too steep to bite on this week, though.

Lions | Reggie Bush sitting out

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:04:17 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($6,000; 12% of your cap) has had a very slow start to the season and has been limited to 10 rushes for 23 yards and seven catches the last two games. He has scored just once this year and is a very sketchy start on FantasyScore right now.

Lions | LaAdrian Waddle has concussion

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:13:11 -0700

Detroit Lions OT LaAdrian Waddle (concussion), who missed three games this year with a calf ailment, didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, due to a concussion. The team used a rotation of OTs Cornelius Lucas and Garrett Reynolds when Waddle was out earlier this year at right tackle, and the duo combined to allow three hurries and five sacks of QB Matthew Stafford.

Lions | Calvin Johnson limited

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:41:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson appears to be making some progress in his rehab, but he is still considered questionable for Week 8. Johnson has a price of $7,500 on FantasyScore, but owners probably should look to spend their money on healthier options.
