Lions | Detroit's slot WR job up for grabs

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:02:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WRs Jeremy Ross, Corey Fuller, Ryan Broyles and Lance Moore will all be candidates for the slot receiver job during training camp. Ross worked with the first-team offense during offseason workouts, but his roster spot is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have several other options in the passing game, so it is not known if the winner of the competition will have a lot of fantasy value. The winner of the competition could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues but would not be a weekly starting option.

Lions | Lance Moore excited to be in Detroit

Thu, 28 May 2015 17:24:26 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore is excited to be back in the offense led by Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi. "This is the offense I had the most success in in my career," said Moore. "I played in this offense for eight years and I think Joe Lombardi was there six or seven of those years that I was there," Moore said Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is likely to win one of the final two spots in the Lions' wide receiver corps. Moore shouldn't be a consideration in fantasy drafts, but he could become an option on FantasyScore, if the Lions suffer some injuries to their receiver group.

Lions | Lance Moore contract details

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:22:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Lance Moore signed a one-year contract worth $1.05 million. He will earn a base salary of $970,000 after receiving a $40,000 signing bonus. Moore will receive a $40,000 roster bonus if he makes the Lions' Week 1 roster. Earning the minimum salary benefit means Moore will count $655,000 against Detroit's 2015 salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is hardly a lock to make the team, but he could have fleeting fantasy value with the right matchups if he does land a top-three receiver spot. He's a better DFS play on FantasyScore than a traditional draft choice.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant emerges as another WR option

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:48:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cut into WR Markus Wheaton's workload in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and QB Ben Roethlisberger took three "shot" plays down the field to Bryant. The team is unsettled at receiver behind WR Antonio Brown, with WRs Wheaton, Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey fighting for targets. It was the first game in which Bryant was active this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant had a fine showing on Monday night in his first game this year. However, the second and third options behind Brown are hard to predict right now, making them nothing more than risky flex plays based on matchups.

Steelers | Justin Brown ahead of Lance Moore

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:03:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Brown is higher on the depth chart than WR Lance Moore, because the team believes Brown is a better receiver than Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Moore missed the first few weeks of the season, which allowed Brown to receive valuable playing time. Brown likely will continue to receive more time as the slot receiver unless he suffers an injury, but neither player is a great fantasy option at this point.
