Lions | Megatron used as a decoy

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 05:28:14 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was used as a decoy for the most part in Week 4 Sunday, Sept. 28. He caught the only two passes he was targeted in for 12 yards and laughed when he was asked if he was close to 90 percent health. He rarely played on back-to-back plays in Sunday's game and had a noticeable limp.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to continue playing through the injury and remains a must-start in most formats.

Lions | Joique Bell likely has concussion

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 14:17:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (head) likely has a concussion, after leaving the Week 4 game against the Detroit Lions due to a head injury. He was taken to the locker room for evaluation and never was able to return. The team did not provide an update after the game, but they would not let him speak to the media after the game, which follows concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: There will likely be more updates available shortly. The team also lost Montell Owens and Theo Riddick to hamstring injuries, so it Reggie Bush was used almost exclusively down the stretch.

Lions | Matthew Stafford receives treatment

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 14:10:41 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand, leg) had the back of his throwing hand or wrist bandaged by the training staff after the Week 4 game against the New York Jets, and the training staff also appeared to be looking at his left leg in the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford made it through the entire game, finishing with 293 passing yards and two touchdowns while also running for another score. That was an impressive stat line considering he was playing with his favorite target, Calvin Johnson, very limited due to an ankle injury.

Lions | Alex Henery misfires on long FG

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:50:39 -0700

Detroit Lions PK Alex Henery converted one of his two field goal attempts while tacking on three extra points in the Week 4 win against the New York Jets. His successful kick was from 51 yards, and his missed field goal was wide right from 52 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Henery was signed this week to replace the ineffective Nate Freese, and the former Eagles kicker did a good job. He'll be kicking for a high-octane offense, and he has re-emerged as a Top 15 fantasy option as a result.

Lions | Eric Ebron finds end zone

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:50:09 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron had three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 win against the New York Jets. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: The team hinted that the rookie would be more involved in the offense, and he hauled in his first NFL touchdown as a result. He is still nothing more than a fantasy option as a bye-week replacement at this point, but he is one to watch in FantasyScore daily leagues in Week 5 if his salary remains reasonable.

Lions | Calvin Johnson sets new low

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:18:09 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) was active in Week 4 against the New York Jets, but he managed just two catches for 12 yards. It was a career low in yardage in a Lions victory. Detroit lost the previous six times he was held under 20 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was obviously not 100 percent, and hurt many fantasy owners in this one. He'll have a whole week to get well, but check back Friday when the official injury report comes out to get a better idea for his status in Week 5.

Lions | Joique Bell injured

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 12:28:02 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (head) left the game early in Week 4 and is being evaluated for a head injury. He is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Bell may have a concussion, so owners will have to watch for an update on him after the game. Reggie Bush could have a bigger role in the offense if Bell misses some time.

Lions | Calvin Johnson on track for Sunday?

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 20:32:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) appears to be trending toward playing in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets after a limited practice Friday, Sept. 26. "It was good to see him moving around a little bit," quarterback Matthew Stafford said.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is facing the league's No. 2 ranked defense, so the matchups isn't great even if he is able to play. With the tough matchup and injury, Johnson is a risky play in FantasyScore at $8900 (or 17.8 percent of the salary cap) even if he is active.
