Lions | Big role for Ameer Abdullah

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 18:03:48 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah is expected to be a big part of the offense in his first NFL season, splitting carries with RB Joique Bell while also having first chance to win punt and kick return duties. Abdullah is expected to play a similar role to RB Reggie Bush in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's offense.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah should be an attractive fantasy option for those in leagues which reward point per reception (PPR), and he could see enough touches to warrant usage as a low-end RB2 or flex play in standard leagues sooner rather than later, too.

Lions | Larry Webster expected to shine

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 17:09:57 -0700

Detroit Lions DE Larry Webster's stock is rising following his rookie season in 2014, when he didn't play in a single game. Webster should figure strongly into the Lions' rotation of 10 to 11 defensive linemen in 2015.

Lions | No timetable for Joique Bell

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:24:23 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles', knee) is making progress in his recovery from injuries, but there is still no timetable for his return, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor Bell's recovery to see when he will be able to return to the field. Bell likely will be the starter if he is healthy and could be a middle-round draft choice in drafts. Owners that select Bell may want to also select Ameer Abdullah as a handcuff in case Bell has a setback.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah has golden opportunity

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:21:08 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah will have an excellent opportunity to turn heads in training camp, after RB Joique Bell (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah has been considered the Lions' most complete running back, and his value will rise every day Bell remains inactive. Abdullah should still be considered as an RB3, but that will change if he begins the season as the starter.

Lions | Joique Bell to begin on PUP list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:20:19 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 29, as he recovers from offseason surgery. It is unclear what the specific injury is, but Bell did have issues with his knee and Achilles' last season.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is eligible to return to the Lions at any point during training camp, but he has been very quiet on his injury issues. Owners are still free to draft Bell at this point, but rookie Ameer Abdullah may have an early season opportunity as this develops.

Lions | Joique Bell's health a big concern?

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:57:58 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell's health will be a concern until the Lions see him back on the field, according to offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi. Bell suffered Achilles' and knee injuries last season, but still managed nearly 1,200 total yards and eight total touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: As long as he is healthy, Bell will be the Lions' starting running back. Ameer Abdullah will probably see his fair share of playing time too, while Theo Riddick should primarily be used on passing downs. There is some risk with Bell, but he should be selected as a RB2.

Lions | Backup QB battle in Detroit

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:03:33 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may lose his job as the Lions' backup quarterback. QB Kellen Moore has a chance to win the job after taking a large share of the second-team reps this offseason. Orlovsky ranked No. 29 in an NFL.com ranking of all 32 backup quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Orlovsky hasn't appeared in a game since 2012 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has just a 57.1% career completion percentage. If anything should happen to Matt Stafford this season, Orlovsky won't be a fantasy option for Stafford owners.

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 06:36:20 -0700
