Lions | Three catches for Golden Tate

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 20:45:25 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught three passes on five targets for 33 yards in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: It was a quiet evening from Tate, but while he has been a little more inconsistent than in recent years, he is still on pace for almost 100 catches. Keep starting him, especially in PPR formats.

Lions | Eric Ebron finds the end zone

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 20:01:08 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron caught five passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: After reaching five catches just once in the first 12 games, Ebron has reached that total in back-to-back weeks, tallying 15 catches on 18 targets. He could be a viable streaming option if you need tight end help over the final two weeks.

Lions | Big plays from Marvin Jones

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 18:40:40 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught three passes on five targets for a team-high 85 yards in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has now topped 80 yards in four of his last five games and seven of his last nine, and he has averaged more than 20 yards per reception in six games in that span. Jones is a dependable WR3 with WR2 upside.

Lions | One carry for Ameer Abdullah

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 18:34:20 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed on time for eight yards and caught three passes for 13 yards in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah had a minimal role in his return from a neck injury. He should see more touches going forward, but he is still a desperation flex play.

Lions | Tion Green carries some slack in Week 15

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 17:55:46 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Tion Green carried 10 times for 35 yards in a win over the Chicago Bears in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: With Ameer Abdullah largely ineffective, Green is picking up some slack. However, he needs to be the main No. 1 force many thought possible. With Theo Riddick still getting touches, Green's effectiveness drops.

Lions | Theo Riddick touches the ball eight times in Week 15

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 17:40:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick ran eight times for 49 yards in a Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: With Riddick and Tion Green splitting carries as Ameer Abdullah heals, it has been a logjam in Detroit. Riddick is battling some wrist issues, but overall this was not the strong performance the Lions hoped for from their running game.

Lions | Matthew Stafford scores twice in Week 15

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 17:27:09 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw 25-for-33 for 237 yards and two touchdowns in his team's 20-10 Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have to hope Stafford stays healthy, as they are riding his arm to a potential playoff berth. He only missed on eight attempts Saturday, so precision doesn't appear to be too much of an issue. Stafford remains a strong QB1 heading into next week.

Lions | Theo Riddick injures wrist

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 15:52:34 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) suffered a wrist injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Riddick may be sidelined. Ameer Abdullah and Tion Green would see time at running back while Riddick is sidelined and would have value in most leagues.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah on track to play

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 12:20:20 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah has missed the last two games because of the injury but should be in uniform against the Chicago Bears. It is not known if he will regain his starting job but should have a decent role in the offense. He likely will share playing time with Theo Riddick during the game and can be benched if owners have better options.
