Fantasy Tip: Ebron hasn't played since Oct. 2, and he could very well be limited if he is active for Week 8. The Houston Texans have been stingy against tight ends this year, too. Wait a week before starting Ebron again.

Fantasy Tip: Washington seems to be ready for Week 8 after missing the last three weeks. His fantasy value is still minimal, though, especially if Theo Riddick returns. It's best to wait at least a week to see how Washington does before plugging him into starting lineups right away.

Fantasy Tip: Pay close attention to Riddick's progress this week since he's missed the last two games with the ankle ailment. He should be started as an RB2 in PPR leagues if he is active. He may not run as much if he does play with Dwayne Washington likely back.

Fantasy Tip: Specifics of Jones' absence were not disclosed, but he doesn't seem to be injured. He hasn't produced as much in recent weeks with the emergence of Golden Tate, but he's a viable WR2 even in a less than favorable tilt with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Q has been a solid receiver out of the slot in the Motor City, re-emerging as a decent WR3 in most fantasy leagues. He'll look to extend his touchdown scoring streak to three games in Week 8 in Houston.

Fantasy Tip: Tate started out very slowly, and likely was dropped by a high percentage of fantasy owners. However, he has 14 catches for 258 yards and a score over his past two games, and he has been targeted 22 times. Matthew Stafford has re-discovered Tate, and he has re-emerged as a trustworthy fantasy option in most formats heading into Week 8 in Houston.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was unable to find the end zone after scoring four touchdowns over his past four games, but his yardage total was his highest since his 205-yard outburst back in Week 3. He remains a decent WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 8 in Houston.

Fantasy Tip: Forsett didn't do much in his first game with the team last week, and he likely wasn't terribly familiar with the playbook. He looked a lot more comfortable on his 10 touches, and he should be even more comfortable in Week 8 in Houston. Forsett isn't a bad bye-week fill-in, especially if the Dewayne Washington and Theo Riddick continue to miss time.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 18 of his 29 pass attempts for 266 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins. He also ran twice for 32 yards while picking up his 100th career NFL victory.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford has three or more touchdowns in four of his seven games this season, but this line hurt most fantasy owners. He'll look to bounce back in Week 8 on the road in Houston.
