Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option today, and Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) makes a risky flex option in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option with Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) a fairly risky option in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option with Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) a lesser flex certainty in Week 12. The long layoff may give Bush a chance to return fresh in Week 13 and be more of a factor than he has been thus far.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, who is currently on pace to finish with the fewest passing yards in a single season for his career, has struggled on deep-ball connections, especially in the last two weeks with WR Calvin Johnson returning. Stafford has completed only 14 percent of his passes at least 20 yards downfield to Johnson the last two weeks, and he's thrown an interception on deep targets in each of the pair's four full games together. Stafford is also struggling in the face of pressure this year, with his completion percentage under pressure dropping from 42 percent last year to 34 percent in 2014, his lowest since 2010.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford and Johnson haven't been able to connect like years past, and Johnson's nagging ankle injury is likely the biggest culprit. With a smaller playbook against the New England Patriots this weekend, this could be the week that Stafford starts to turn things around, though; New England has allowed 21.33 fantasy points per game to QBs in the last four weeks.

Detroit Lions WRs Calvin Johnson (ankle, elbow) and Golden Tate (hip) are both listed as probable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots. Johnson and Tate were both limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and Tate was a surprise addition to the injury report.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,900) is never a bad option for your FantasyScore rosters, but the New England Patriots secondary isn't shabby, especially of late. Tate ($6,700) may have the tougher go of it Sunday if he's covered by Darrelle Revis all day.

Fantasy Tip: Bell costs $5,400 at FantasyScore, and the Patriots have allowed an average of 20.76 fantasy points to running backs, although their D has stiffened of late. Bell will be a safer play if Reggie Bush (ankle) sits out again.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a chance that Bush could miss his fourth straight game, but he said earlier this week that he expects to play. Bush remains risky at FantasyScore for $5,200, especially when Detroit has two other options that are fully capable of carrying the load.

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) and OG Larry Warford (knee) have been ruled out for Week 12 against the New England Patriots. DE Jason Jones (non-injury), TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) and OT LaAdrian Waddle (knee) are probable. Fairley and Warford didn't practice Friday, Nov. 21, while the others practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson's injuries are minor at this point, so expect him to play against the New England Patriots. Megatron is a must-start in standard leagues, and at FantasyScore, he'll cost you a hefty $7,900 of your budget. Johnson may find it tough to return you any value against a New England secondary that has been improving.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:59:23 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Both running backs are expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 12. Bell ($5,400) should be the more trusted FantasyScore lineup option, though, and the Pats have allowed an average of 18.63 fantasy points to running backs. Bush costs slightly less than Bell at $5,200.
