Fantasy Tip: Even if he does play, Bell is probably best left off FantasyScore lineups with a tough draw against the Green Bay Packers, who have allowed only eight rushing touchdowns to running backs through 15 games.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson probably is just receiving a day off, but owners should look for an update later in the day. Johnson has posted at least 100 yards in three of the last four games and should be a No. 1 wide receiver option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is a special athlete, but his offensive production has left a lot to be desired in his rookie year. However, his head coach seems to be happy with Ebron's development, and he could be a sneaky sleeper later in drafts next year.

Fantasy Tip: Tate continues to add to this career high, as he now sits at 1,224 receiving yards on the season. He and Calvin Johnson are the first pair of Detroit receivers to have 1,000 yards in the same season since 2006. Tate is a solid WR2 or flex play in Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers. He had five receptions for 51 yards in the first matchup with the Pack in Week 3.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) hauled in six receptions for a game-high 103 yards in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, as he went over 1,000 yards receiving for the fifth straight season, and sixth time in eight NFL seasons. He left the game briefly due to an ankle issue, but was able to return.
Fantasy Tip: The Lions have a pair of 1,000 receivers for the first time since the 2006 season, as Megatron joins Golden Tate in the club. Johnson walked off his injury on the sidelines and should be fine for Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 22 of 39 passes for 243 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears. He hit the 4,000-yard mark for the fourth consecutive season.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford's production has really dipped over the past two games, posting a total of 396 passing yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, while his completion percentage is 60.7 or worse. He'll face the Green Bay Packers in Week 17 in a key NFC North battle for the division title. In Week 3 he completed 22 of 34 passes for 246 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions at home against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: The 98 total yards from scrimmage was actually his second-highest total (99 yards was best in Week 3) of the season. That 99-yard performance came against the Green Bay Packers, the team's opponent in Week 17. He is a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore for next week's crucial NFC North battle.
