Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he believes his numbers can go up this year despite moving from the top option in Seattle to the No. 2 option in Detroit. "I think my numbers can be way better in this offense naturally how it's set up," Tate said. "I was coming from, you gotta think I was in the toughest division with the 49ers, Rams and Cardinals, defensively, with a run-heavy offense and now I'm going to a pass-happy offense where I'm on the same team as the best player in the league, one of the best players in the league who is going to draw a lot of attention, a lot of double coverage, which is going to leave me with a lot of single coverage with a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks."
Fantasy Tip: Tate spelled out the reasons why fantasy owners should be intrigued about his potential this year. The Lions have been looking for a reliable complement for Calvin Johnson for years, and Tate should fil the void. A career year seems inevitable, and fantasy owners should feel comfortable drafting him as a WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Bush should be a big part of Detroit's rushing and passing attacks this year, making him a solid option as an RB2 in all formats with the potential to be a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: There was no indication that Bush is injured. This could just be precautionary. Bush remains an RB2 option with more upside in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Freese could be a low-end No. 1 kicker in some leagues as well as a bye-week replacement in leagues where he is not drafted.

Detroit Lions LB Tahir Whitehead had 10 tackles and three sacks during his team's exhibition game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "He was really playing at a level of one of the top three linebackers, and so we put him in position to kind of see what we can do," coach Jim Caldwell said of Whitehead. "And obviously he took advantage of it."
Fantasy Tip: Whitehead could be a player to watch if Kyle Van Noy's abdominal issues keep him sidelined for a while. The Jaguars are not the most dominant team to face, but three sacks is still impressive in any circle.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions LB Kyle Van Noy (abdomen) said he may be dealing with a sports hernia but is not sure at this point. He said the pain moves around and does not say in one specific area. He is scheduled to undergo further evaluation to determine the extent of the injury.
