Lions | Eric Ebron not going anywhere

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 12:37:45 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron will not be released as he enters the 2018 season under his fifth-year option. Ebron will be guaranteed $8.25 million when the new league year begins. The inconsistent tight end's presence will limit playing time for fellow TEs Darren Fells and Michael Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron came on late in the 2017 season and narrowly missed finishing as a TE1. If he can maintain good health and have a better start to the season then there is a chance Ebron can achieve TE1 status. Don't bet on it, though.

Lions | DeMarco Murray an option for DET?

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:42:52 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray could be an option for the Detroit Lions if the Titans release him this offseason, in the opinion of The Detroit News' Justin Rogers.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions will be looking to add at least one running back this offseason, and Murray likely will be released this offseason. Murray likely will be part of a committee no matter where he plays in 2018 and probably will be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back.

Lions | Dion Lewis of interest to Lions?

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 11:27:48 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis may be pursued by the Detroit Lions if he does enter free agency, according to The Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Fantasy Tip: Ameer Abdullah hasn't been getting it done in Detroit and Theo Riddick is primarily used as a pass-catcher. The Lions need someone else to pick up the slack in the backfield. Lewis is coming off a pleasantly surprising year and obviously has a connection with current Lions head coach Matt Patricia, the former defensive coordinator of the Patriots. He would be sharing time with the aforementioned Abdullah and Riddick, but Lewis would stand to be Detroit's biggest running threat if this move were to come to fruition.
