Lions | Ameer Abdullah staying focused

Mon, 22 May 2017 11:19:17 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) said he's attacking this offseason with a more focused mindset and working as hard as he can to be the best player he can be. The third-year running back also hopes to leave his injury woes behind him. He's focused on the little things and the work he has to do to maintain his body for the NFL after suffering a season-ending foot injury in Week 2 last season.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah has the right mindset and the right attitude, but those can only go so far. He'll have had almost a full year to recover from his ailments and has already been named Detroit's starting running back. Abdullah's involvement in the passing game will be limited with Theo Riddick there, but drafting Abdullah as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 could be worth the risk.

Lions | Eric Ebron may receive extension

Wed, 17 May 2017 11:42:24 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he has talked with general manager Bob Quinn about a possible contract extension.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron posted a career-high 711 receiving yards in 2016 but recorded only one touchdown in 13 games. He has missed at least two games in each of the last three seasons, so he does have a bit of an injury concern. He probably can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron progressing nicely

Sat, 13 May 2017 08:30:22 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has yet to play 16 games in a season for the Lions, but he set career-highs last year in receptions (61) and yards (711) last season. He has also improved as a blocker, while his drop rate went from 10.1 percent in 2015 to 5.8 percent in 2016 even as he was targeted 17 more times and had a higher percentage of targets per route run and receptions per route run, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron will complain about the fact he scored only one touchdown, but the evidence does support Rothstein's assertion. The tight end position is one of the hardest for young players to learn, and Ebron entered the league more as a glorified slot than in-line tight end. He's climbed into TE1 territory for fantasy purposes and can be expected to take another leap forward this year so long as he stays healthy for the first time in his career.

Lions | Jarrad Davis could make instant impact

Sat, 13 May 2017 08:06:04 -0700

Detroit Lions first-round LB Jarrad Davis is "well-equipped" to help a defense that allowed the highest completion percentage against in NFL history last year," according to head coach Jim Caldwell. "We expect him to be a factor for us. Smart guy. He's got ability, can run, hit, etc. So I think he'll help us quickly," Caldwell said.

Lions | Anquan Boldin appears unlikely to return

Sat, 06 May 2017 07:47:09 -0700

Although free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) does not plan to retire, he has not had discussions with the Detroit Lions for more than a month. In the opinion of's Kyle Meinke, the odds of him returning to Detroit for the 2017 season are growing increasingly slim, especially after the Lions drafted WR Kenny Golladay in the third round of the draft. In addition, Boldin's No. 80 jersey has been reassigned to TE Michael Roberts.
