Saints | Mark Ingram limited vs. Lions

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:58:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran seven times for 37 yards Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was hampered by an injured toe for part of the game, and even then he didn't look good at all against a strong Lions defense. You may want to check the injury reports to see how Ingram will fare early in the week.

Lions | Matt Prater has four field goals

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:55:11 -0800

Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater kicked four field goals Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Prater remains a safe bet for fantasy owners, who have come to see Prater rarely miss a field goal or extra point. In this day and age of kickers missing PATs, this is a good sign. If you need a strong kicker to close out your season or go to the playoffs, pick up Prater if he is available.

Lions | Golden Tate has explosive game

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:42:18 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight catches and 145 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown scamper, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Tate took advantage of a porous Saints pass defense on his long touchdown, but the bigger story is how well Tate did overall. Take away that long TD and he still had 79 receiving yards. Tate is a strong WR1 on a Lions squad with plenty of pass-catching options.

Lions | Matthew Stafford impressive in Superdome

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:17:54 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 341 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford methodically picked apart the Saints' defense for his scores, including a 66-yard strike to WR Golden Tate. Stafford has struggled at times to get the offense going this year, but he remains a strong QB1 thanks mainly to his choice of weapons on offense.

Lions | Theo Riddick will play

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 09:14:13 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should receive most of the work at running back against the New Orleans Saints and should also be involved in the passing game. He should be a solid No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Lions | Marvin Jones won't play in Week 13

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 08:58:23 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) will not play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will be sidelined despite participating in practice on a limited basis throughout the week. Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin, Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick should each see an increased number of targets versus New Orleans as a result.

Lions | Marvin Jones unlikely to play

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:37:07 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) is considered a long shot to play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. If he is officially declared inactive, WRs Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin should see an increase in fantasy value, along with TE Eric Ebron and RB Theo Riddick.

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:01:33 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Riddick was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been an integral part of Detroit's running and passing game and should continue to be viewed as a solid RB2 option, especially in PPR formats.
