Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy (knee, quadriceps) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 8. CB Nevin Lawson (foot), DT Haloti Ngata (shoulder), OT Riley Reiff (illness), OT Corey Robinson (ankle) and TE Cole Wick (knee) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. OG Joe Dahl (illness) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Jones bounced back in Week 7 after two disappointing performances and has caught two touchdowns in the last three games. He has become the team's top receiver and should be a fine No. 2 receiver for most fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: Washington should serve as the No. 2 running back for the Lions this week and will see limited touches during the game. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick likely will take over the starting running back job and should see plenty of touches during the game. He can be a solid No. 2 running back in most leagues and will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron should return to the lineup after missing several weeks because of his injuries. He has been fairly consistent in the four games he has played this season and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: After getting in a limited session on Wednesday, it looks like Riddick will be on his way back from a two-game absence. Prior to landing on the sidelines, the 25-year-old tailback was the biggest piece of Detroit's running game, and he should resume his busy role against the Texans. His return might also hinder Golden Tate, who has stepped up big time the past two weeks in Riddick's absence. Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett also head back to the end of the line if Dwayne Washington suits up as well.

Detroit Lions OL Riley Reiff (illness) and Corey Robinson (ankle), LB DeAndre Levy (knee, quad) and CB Darius Slay (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27. CB Nevin Lawson (foot) and DT Haloti Ngata (shoulder) were limited participants, while OL Joe Dahl (illness) and RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) were each able to practice in full.

Fantasy Tip: Jones scared owners a bit when he mysteriously was not present at practice on Wednesday, but not only did he return one day later, it turned out it wasn't even injury-related. Regardless, Jones has a solid opportunity to return his usual WR2 value this weekend opposite Houston. He's coming off a week that saw him produce his highest yardage total since Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: After missing the last three games, it looks like Ebron will be making his return in Week 8. He participated in practice on a limited basis on Wednesday, so today's upgrade certainly solidifies that. However, with the recent emergence of Golden Tate, not to mention the likely return of Theo Riddick, owners might want to take a wait-and-see approach with Ebron as he eases back into his weekly role. That is, unless there's no one else to use at tight end this week.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is not played since Week 4 because of his injuries but likely will be in the starting lineup this week. He was consistent in the four games he has played this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he is active.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 12:56:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Washington may serve as the No. 2 running back if he is active for the game and would see limited touches during the game. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 12:45:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Riddick has missed the last two games because of the injury but probably will regain his starting job in Week 8. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he is active.

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 15:48:44 -0700
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.
