Lions | Dan Orlovsky's job safe?

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 04:55:41 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may have a lock on the No. 2 job despite the presence of QB Jake Rudock on the roster. Lions coach Jim Caldwell and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter were singing Orlovsky's praises after OTAs ended last week.

Fantasy Tip: The thinking is Rudock may need some seasoning despite his raw talent, so Orlovsky may have the proven track record. The Lions may go with three QB's in 2016. If you own Matthew Stafford on your roster, it's always wise to stash the backup away as a "handcuff" selection, so keep an eye on how this shakes out.

Lions | Matthew Stafford pulled in blowout

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 15:19:40 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford was benched late in the third quarter of the Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals, down 35-7. QB Dan Orlovsky replaced him.

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.

Lions | Backup QB battle in Detroit

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:03:33 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may lose his job as the Lions' backup quarterback. QB Kellen Moore has a chance to win the job after taking a large share of the second-team reps this offseason. Orlovsky ranked No. 29 in an NFL.com ranking of all 32 backup quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Orlovsky hasn't appeared in a game since 2012 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has just a 57.1% career completion percentage. If anything should happen to Matt Stafford this season, Orlovsky won't be a fantasy option for Stafford owners.
