Lions | Marvin Jones racks up 64 yards

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:11:41 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in three receptions for 64 yards on four targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones had the one off week back in Week 10 against the Browns of all teams, but he has been a consistent WR3 or flex option in fantasy leagues for most of the season.

Lions | Golden Tate busy in road victory

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:10:04 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown on his nine targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has eight receptions in back-to-back games, and he has managed at least three receptions in each of his 13 games this season. He also returned to the end zone for the first time in four games. Tate has been a steady low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in most fantasy leagues this season.

Lions | Eric Ebron hauls in 10 receptions

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:09:33 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron racked up 10 receptions for 94 yards on 11 targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been a disappointment for most of his career but he has really started to come on lately. He has four or more receptions in each of the past four outings, totaling 22 receptions. This was his biggest production, though, by far. He is still more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues until this becomes the norm.

Lions | Tion Green in for five rushes

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:09:01 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Tion Green rushed five times for 15 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Green was up with Ameer Abdullah on the shelf and he was working as the primary backup to Theo Riddick. However, he still has very minimal fantasy appeal unless something also happens to Riddick.

Lions | Theo Riddick totals 93 yards, two scores

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:08:33 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed 10 times for a team-high 29 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six receptions for 64 yards on 10 targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick was the biggest beneficiary with Ameer Abdullah inactive, as he has 16 total touches to five for Tion Green and two for Zach Zenner. As long as Abdullah is on the shelf it's Riddick who is a valuable flex play in PPR formats.

Lions | Drew Stafford throws for 381 yards, TD

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:07:34 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 36 of his 44 pass attempts for 381 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford checked out early in Week 13 due to a hand injury, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects of the injury in this one. If you normally rely upon him in fantasy leagues it appears safe to keep using him going forward.

Lions | Matthew Stafford will be in uniform

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 08:53:47 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is officially active for the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford suffered the injury last week but likely will receive his normal workload against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will be a risky option because the injury is to his throwing hand but can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback before of the matchup.

Lions | Jim Caldwell only has one year left on deal

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 07:30:23 -0800

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell's extension that he received earlier in the year was only for the 2018 season and included an option for 2019, according to sources. His status with the team will not be determined until after the season, but the extension will not factor into the decision.

Lions | Matthew Stafford likely to start Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:02:39 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is expected to start Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford appears to be on pace to start his 109th consecutive game and should be viewed as a low-end QB1 option in all fantasy formats due to the favorable matchup. He was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report but owners should have no reservations about starting him.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah unlikely to play

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 05:55:11 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, his possible deactivation for this afternoon could be related more to performance than health. RB Theo Riddick should see a decent amount of playing time and is worthy of consideration as a flex option in PPR fantasy leagues.

Lions | Joe Dahl activated

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 12:08:04 -0800

Lions | Matthew Stafford limited in practice

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:42:00 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has healed very quickly from the hand injury he suffered late in the Week 13 game in Baltimore. If he starts he is a very nice fantasy option against the league's 31st-ranked pass defense. Tampa has allowed 267.3 yards per game, most in the NFC, and 19 touchdowns with 10 or more pass plays of 40 yards allowed.
