Lions | Zach Zenner a roster lock

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 10:58:35 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner finished the preseason with 35 carries for 183 yards and two touchdowns, and he appears to be a roster lock.

Fantasy Tip: Zenner was an undrafted free agent but is currently fourth on Detroit's running back depth chart directly behind another impressive rookie, Ameer Abdullah. While it's a feel-good story, don't expect to see much of Zenner unless an injury opens up more playing time.

Lions | Joique Bell practices

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:09:21 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') was a limited participant in practice and took repetitions with the first-team offense Monday, Aug. 31, after being activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has had his fair of injuries this offseason, and throughout his career. As long as he's on the field, however, he's worth a look as a RB2. His ceiling is stinted because of Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, however.

Lions | Joique Bell activated

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:38:08 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') was activated from the Phyiscally Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has been making his way back all offseason. It looks like he's finally ready for regular season action. The trick for Bell will be staying on the field. Behind him are a slew of promising runners that include Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner. Even in a crowded backfield, Bell is worth RB2 consideration.

Lions | Tim Wright headed to Detroit

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 06:29:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Tim Wright was acquired by the Detroit Lions Monday, Aug. 31, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is a good receiver, but he has Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron ahead of him. Pettigrew will be in there for his blocking and Ebron can be an upper echelon receiver. Wright probably will be an in-season waiver claim unless one of them goes down.

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 06:04:30 -0700

Lions | Joique Bell progressing nicely

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 06:46:27 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') has ramped up his return-to-play workouts in recent weeks and said he is "getting close." Head coach Jim Caldwell said Bell looks in good shape and hinted the running back will be ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bell appears on track to be ready for Week 1, but whether he will be utilized without restrictions is unknown. While he is the likely starter and elder statesmen in a projected committee with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Reddick, there is a chance Bell is somewhat eased back into the mix due to his limitations in camp and lengthy rehab during the offseason. Bell is a fringe No. 2 running back in standard leagues, and Abdullah is a worthy RB3 with upside in PPR formats. Reddick is nothing more than a late-round flier in deep leagues.

Lions | Golden Tate plays well

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:33:23 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught three passes for 91 yards and a touchdown Friday, Aug. 28. The touchdown came on a 62 yard strike from QB Matthew Stafford.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has scored twice this preseason, solidifying himself as a deep threat again this year. He is coming off a career year, but that was partly because Calvin Johnson missed some time. Tate should still be taken as a WR2.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 07:49:18 -0700

Lions | Matthew Stafford stars in dress rehearsal

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 06:42:17 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 11-for-15 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns during the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Look for Stafford to flirt with a top-five fantasy season among his pass-tossing peers in 2015, as he enters the second year of offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's offense with multiple weapons at his disposal. It is encouraging to see him posting tidy stat lines in the preseason, too. Expect Stafford to present a huge value on draft day, and look for him in the middle rounds.
