Detroit Lions DT Caraun Reid (ankle) and C Travis Swanson (ankle) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 1. S James Ihedigbo (hamstring) and S Glover Quin (ankle) were limited. OG Larry Warford (concussion) and DT Gabe Wright (ankle) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: The specific illness and its severity were not disclosed, but Prater could still recover in time for Thursday night. His status will need to be tracked leading up to then. Be ready to pick up another kicker just in case he's unable to go.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was limited yesterday, so the upgrade is promising, and it looks like Tate will be able to play against the Green Bay Packers Thursday night. The Packers have played well defensively against wide receivers this season, though, so lower your expectations for Tate this week.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably just a maintenance day after Megatron caught three touchdowns on Thanksgiving Day. Johnson ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) will be a low-end WR1 option against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13 Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The specific illness and its severity were not disclosed, but Prater will have about three days to recover from it. His status will need to be tracked leading up to Thursday night. Be ready to pick up another kicker just in case he's unable to go.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is kind of third fiddle as long as Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate suit up. He's not a reliable fantasy option, especially against a solid Green Bay Packers pass defense this week.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson being limited in practice is like snow being white, so this shouldn't be a big surprise. Johnson and Tate should both be monitored leading up to Thursday night's game, of course. Unfortunately, they have a tough matchup against the Green Bay Packers, who have been one of the better fantasy defenses against wide receivers this year.

Fantasy Tip: A lot of that is an aberration game against the Philadelphia Eagles, who had no defense for Calvin Johnson yesterday. Stafford will have a decent matchup against the Green Bay Packers next Thursday, but pump the brakes just a bit before crowning his renaissance.

Fantasy Tip: After playing a minimal role for a few games, Abdullah has tallied 28 carries in his last two games. He looks like Detroit's top back at this point, and he could be worth a look at FantasyScore against friendly matchups.

Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah tallied 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in a 45-14 drubbing of the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Nov. 26. He is now tied with Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt for the NFL-lead in sacks at 11.5.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has been one of the most consistent pass-catching running backs in all of the NFL this year. He should be regarded as an every-week starter in PPR scoring formats.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson had a hay day Thursday, Nov. 26, against the Philadelphia Eagles. Stafford threw for 337 yards and five touchdowns, while Johnson caught eight passes for 93 yards and three touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford and Johnson had their best outing of the year combined in a rout of the Eagles on Thanksgiving. The Lions have really struggled in 2015, but they really rewarded fantasy owners who stuck with them this week. This may turn out to be their best combined game of the season, but it could be a positive sign of things to come.
