Lions | Calvin Johnson expects to return after bye

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:32:39 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he "definitely expects to play" against the Miami Dolphins after the team's bye week. Johnson has missed the last three games due to a high right ankle sprain. WR Golden Tate has 24 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns in Johnson's absence.

Fantasy Tip: As soon as Johnson returns to action, he should be returned to fantasy lineups. Tate won't completely disappear, but his value is likely at it's peak for this season.

Lions | Nick Fairley could be lost for season

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 13:56:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) isn't certain to return this season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Fairley is dealing with a sprained knee, but there is hope that he can return in four to five weeks. Fairley had to be helped off the field in Week 8, and he was placed on a cart and taken to the locker room. He had 14 tackles and a sack through eight games.

Lions | Jim Caldwell not optimistic about Nick Fairley

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 01:05:07 -0700

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) suffered a knee injury during the team's 22-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons, and coach Jim Caldwell is not optimistic about his status. "I'm not quite certain where he is right now," Caldwell said after the game. "But obviously, when you're carried off the field, it's not the greatest news. We'll see what the doctors say about him." Caldwell did not speculate if he thought the injury could be season-ending.

Lions | Eric Ebron inactive

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:12:52 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is inactive Sunday, Oct. 26, for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have a lot of injuries at the position, so expect Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) and Golden Tate ($6,900; 13.8%) to receive heavier attention on offense. No Lions tight end is worth using on FantasyScore today.

Lions | Calvin Johnson inactive for Week 8

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:12:02 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is inactive for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Golden Tate ($6,900; 13.8% of your cap) is a good start at WR2 on FantasyScore against the Atlanta Falcons. However, he needs someone to step up to take the defensive focus off of him due to all of the injuries.

Lions | Reggie Bush inactive today

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:11:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4%) becomes an even better play on FantasyScore today. With Bush, Megatron and two tight ends out, he should have a heavy load.

Lions | Joique Bell likely to carry load

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:10:18 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is likely to see a lion's share of the carries in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: A source indicated Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely to be rested again, so Bell would be the top back. George Winn and Theo Riddick could also see carries, but Bell is the best option and he has great hands out of the backfield. In FantasyScore leagues, Bell is a steal at $4,700 (or 9.4 percent of the cap).

Lions | Another big game for Golden Tate?

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:09:48 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate will be facing the league's 29th ranked pass defense in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: A source said Calvin Johnson (ankle) is likely to sit again, so Tate would be the No. 1 wideout against a leaky Atlanta pass defense. A trip to the end zone and triple-digit yardage total is a good possibility. At $6,900 (or 13.8 percent of the cap), Tate is a sound investment.
