Lions | Brandon Pettigrew to be released

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 20:59:15 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) is expected to be released soon. The team cleaned out his stall in the team's locker room and removed his nameplate. He was placed on the non-football injury list Tuesday, Dec. 6. He did not appear in a game in 2016 after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee last December.

Fantasy Tip: Pettigrew is healthy and likely to land with another organization. However, he isn't likely to have fantasy appeal until at least the 2017 season.

Lions | Eric Ebron also limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:11:27 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was targeted more frequently than usual last week, but that was partly because Marvin Jones was sidelined. If Jones is active then Ebron's value takes a decrease, but he remains a low-end TE1 option.

Lions | Dwayne Washington limited

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:06:27 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Washington has been decent in a complementary role to Theo Riddick, but Riddick is the starter, and as long as Riddick is active then Washington can be avoided.

Lions | Theo Riddick sits Wednesday

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:02:08 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that Riddick would sit this week after being able to play last week while not at 100%. If the shifty running back is unexpectedly sidelined, however, then Dwayne Washington would make for a sleeper option in deeper standard leagues.

Lions | Limited practice for Marvin Jones

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 13:55:12 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was limited in practice last week too and ended up not playing, so don't start getting all positive about his status just yet. If Jones is sidelined again or limited at all then Golden Tate should be viewed as a WR1 versus the mediocre Chicago Bears pass defense.

Lions | Dwayne Washington injury not serious

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 13:55:29 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) avoided a serious injury in Week 13 and could play this week, in the opinion of Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Washington does play, he'll still be playing behind Theo Riddick and could be limited given the injury. Washington will only have legitimate fantasy value if Riddick misses time.

Saints | Mark Ingram limited vs. Lions

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:58:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran seven times for 37 yards Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was hampered by an injured toe for part of the game, and even then he didn't look good at all against a strong Lions defense. You may want to check the injury reports to see how Ingram will fare early in the week.

Lions | Matt Prater has four field goals

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:55:11 -0800

Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater kicked four field goals Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Prater remains a safe bet for fantasy owners, who have come to see Prater rarely miss a field goal or extra point. In this day and age of kickers missing PATs, this is a good sign. If you need a strong kicker to close out your season or go to the playoffs, pick up Prater if he is available.
