Lions | Matthew Stafford hits 4,000 yards

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:02:47 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 22 of 39 passes for 243 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears. He hit the 4,000-yard mark for the fourth consecutive season.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford's production has really dipped over the past two games, posting a total of 396 passing yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, while his completion percentage is 60.7 or worse. He'll face the Green Bay Packers in Week 17 in a key NFC North battle for the division title. In Week 3 he completed 22 of 34 passes for 246 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions at home against the Packers.

Lions | Reggie Bush finds end zone

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:02:16 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush ran seven times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, and he added six receptions for 44 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The 98 total yards from scrimmage was actually his second-highest total (99 yards was best in Week 3) of the season. That 99-yard performance came against the Green Bay Packers, the team's opponent in Week 17. He is a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore for next week's crucial NFC North battle.

Lions | Calvin Johnson a full participant

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:49:03 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's $7,500 FantasyScore salary this week should be justified, as he's going against a very weak Chicago Bears secondary. It's about as good a matchup as you could ask for if you're in a championship matchup this week and own Megatron.
