Detroit Lions news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 12 Oct 2015 15:24:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bell has missed the last two games because of injuries, but his practice participation will determine his status for Week 6. Bell likely would receive some carries if he is active but is not the best option for owners.

Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy (hip) could he shut down for the rest of the 2015 season because of his hip injury, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Levy tried to play in the Week 5 game but had to leave the game early because of his hip.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) faces the Chicago Bears in Week 6, who have been good against opposing quarterbacks the last three weeks. Stafford is a risky midrange grab on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) saw a majority of the work on passing downs after Ameer Abdullah ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) spent large stretches on the bench after fumbling twice. If Abdullah remains in the doghouse, Riddick could be a sneaky add in points-per-reception formats.

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah was replaced by RB Zach Zenner and replaced as kick returner by WR T.J. Jones after fumbling twice in the first half against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5. He finished with six carries for 17 yards and one catch for nine yards.
Fantasy Tip: Abdullah ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) needs to figure out how to hold on to the ball, or he is going to continue to lose playing time. Joique Bell could ultimately benefit, but while Bell is injured, Zach Zenner ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is the other option for carries. Of course, the entire Detroit rushing attack is struggling, so none of the team's backs are great plays at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if the winless Lions plan to make a quarterback change, but it's bad news for the FantasyScore outlook for Stafford ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) going forward. Orlovsky ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) might be worth grabbing just in case, in formats which require two starting signal callers.

Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be a nice FantasyScore bargain, as he starts with Eric Ebron already ruled out. At the very least, you save a ton of salary to allocate elsewhere.

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore (ankle) and TE Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) are probable for Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. Pettigrew was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 9, while Moore was a full participant.
Fantasy Tip: Both Moore ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Pettigrew ($2,000) are strictly salary cap relief options on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should yet again see the lion's share of touches in the backfield, but he's facing tough Cards defense and is a midrange running back pick. Brandon Pettigrew ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Tim Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should fill in at tight end with Ebron out, but neither are attractive sleeper picks on FantasyScore.

Detroit Lions DT Haloti Ngata (calf) has been ruled out for Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. S James Ihedigbo (quadriceps) and OG Larry Warford (ankle) are questionable, while DE Ziggy Ansah (shoulder), LB DeAndre Levy (hip), LB Travis Lewis (ankle), P Sam Martin (knee), CB Rashean Mathis (calf), OT Corey Robinson (ankle) and CB Darius Slay (quadriceps) are probable. Ngata did not practice Friday, Oct. 9. Warford, Ihedigbo, Martin and Slay were limited, while the others practiced in full.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ankle) disclosed that he had surgery on his ankle in March and is suffering from some lingering pain from it. Bell said he has played through pain this season. "I'm close," Bell said. "Wanted to go this week, but they wanted to rest me one more week. We'll see. Coach's call."
Fantasy Tip: Bell ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) sounds like he'll sit out this week. Ameer Abdullah ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is at a good price on FantasyScore, but his offensive line has been shaky. The Arizona Cardinals might not be the best matchup for him.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't have more than three catches or 22 yards in any game this year. He shouldn't be on anyone's radar on FantasyScore this weekend against a nasty Arizona Cardinals secondary.
