Lions | Bigger role coming for Eric Ebron

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 17:56:57 -0700

The Detroit Lions are expecting TE Eric Ebron to make a big jump from his rookie season to year number two. "Ebron's the guy we're counting on to be that (No. 3 option)," offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Tuesday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is expected to take a giant leap, serving as the No. 3 receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. If he is able to live up to expectations he could be a huge steal on draft day. Right now, he is best targeted in the late middle rounds, but with a strong training camp and preseason his value could bump up even more.

Lions | Theo Riddick's role to expand

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 10:22:51 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick will have his role expanded in 2015. The team may opt to draft a running back in the NFL Draft, so how much his role will expand has yet to be determined.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick is an excellent receiver out of the backfield, but he hasn't shown a lot in the running game yet. He could wind up being an RB3 with upside in PPR formats.

Lions | Matthew Stafford to throw less?

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:26:19 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford won't be throwing more than he did last season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Caldwell said if the Lions are throwing a lot, it could very well mean they'll be playing catch up, something he wants to avoid.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford "only" had 602 pass attempts in 2014, fewer than the three previous years. The one drawback to Stafford's game is that he doesn't throw a lot of touchdowns, which has hindered his maximum potential as far as fantasy football is concerned. He's still a No. 1 QB option, however, especially with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate at his disposal.

Lions | DET expecting Eric Ebron to improve

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 08:31:51 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has been impressive with his offseason work, and the team is expecting him to take a significant step in his play next season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was limited to 248 receiving yards and one touchdown this past season, but he could have a bigger role next season. Owners should consider Ebron as a No. 2 tight end entering drafts next season.

Lions | Detroit meeting with Todd Gurley

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 10:05:02 -0700

Georgia RB Todd Gurley is meeting with the Detroit Lions Monday, March 16.

Fantasy Tip: Gurley is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but has a chance to be selected in the first round of the draft. Joique Bell is believed to be the No. 1 running back at the moment, but Gurley could compete for the job if the Lions use a high-round pick on Gurley. Owners will have to see where Gurley lands before having a good idea of his status, but he likely will have more value in non-point-per-reception leagues.
