Fantasy Tip: Ebron will be a free agent this offseason but should be able to find a starting job with a team during free agency. He has had problems with injuries during his career but can be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy drafts if he stays healthy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
