Lions | Eric Ebron may see bigger role

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:17:01 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he hopes to become a safety net for QB Matthew Stafford in 2016 since WR Calvin Johnson decided to retire.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron should receive more targets because of the receiver situation and could become a focal point in the passing game. He probably will be a late-round option in most leagues and will be a No. 2 tight end or low-end starter in deeper leagues.

Lions | Matthew Stafford won't be traded

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 13:54:56 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford will not be traded, according to general manager Bob Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has had his ups and downs with the Lions over the years. He has always flirted with being a borderline QB1 and a high-end QB2. The loss of Calvin Johnson really hurts his fantasy value, obviously, so it might be safer to take him more as a high-end QB2.

Lions | Matthew Stafford looks to build on '15

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:59:35 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford is hopeful he still has a hot hand after he exploded for 20 touchdowns, to only four interceptions, and a 105.1 passer rating in nine games with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter last season.

"We just see (football) the same way, talk about it the same way and that's not to say we like the same stuff all the time," Stafford said of Cooter. "He likes some stuff that I'm not comfortable with, and I'm comfortable with some stuff that he doesn't like, and that's the way it goes. You pick your battles and go from there."

Fantasy Tip: Stafford is losing Megatron this season, but they added Marvin Jones to a stable that includes Golden Tate and a budding Eric Ebron. Stafford is right on that low-end QB1/high-end QB2 seesaw in fantasy.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah more prepared

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 18:57:09 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah said he expects to more consistent in 2016 because he better understands the preparation it takes to succeed in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah will have to overcome fumbling issues and a weak offensive line, but he does have big-play explosiveness and is worth a look as a low-end RB3.

Lions | Best yet to come for Stevan Ridley?

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 18:42:27 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley said he believes his best years are still ahead of him, and he said he expects to have a similar role to the one he had with the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley should handle short-yardage duties, and the possibility of goal-line carries makes him worth a look as a RB4.
