Lions | Jim Caldwell talks two-point attempts

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:14:02 -0700

Detroit Lions head Jim Caldwell was noncommittal on his approach to two-point conversions this upcoming season. Caldwell said going for two points or not will depend on the situation. In Caldwell's two years as head coach, the Lions converted zero of their three two-point attempts last year and one of three tries the year before.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect to see a ton of two-point tries by the Lions this year. They only had three such tries last year even after the rule change. It shouldn't have much impact on the fantasy value of guys like Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate.

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 | T.J. Jones on the verge of a breakout?

Sat, 28 May 2016 12:38:29 -0700

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones was "one of the obvious stars" in a recent organized team activity on Thursday, May 26, and has earned praised from head coach Jim Caldwell and QB Matthew Stafford for his offseason work.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Marvin Jones will absorb a good chunk of the 150 targets left behind by Calvin Johnson, there is going to be room for a player like T.J. Jones to make some noise for Detroit post-Megatron. The Lions also added Jeremy Kerley as a free agent, but he is primarily a slot receiver - a spot Golden Tate usually occupies in three-wide sets. As such, T.J. Jones is a name owners in all leagues should keep on their watch lists this season.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah primed to improve

Sat, 26 Mar 2016 13:27:17 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah battled through ball-security issues and an ineffective offensive line as a rookie, but head coach Jim Caldwell believes "if there's anybody that is going to improve (this year), he's going to improve".

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah's fumbling problem dates back to his college days, although that became less of a problem as the season progressed. Most of his ineffectiveness - at least early on - can be blamed on what was quite likely the worst run-blocking offensive line in the league. Owners should consider him a high-upside flex for now, at least until Detroit puts a premium on upgrading the front five.

Lions | Jim Caldwell retained

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 06:06:39 -0800

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell was retained as head coach for the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have some pieces on offense, and Matthew Stafford turned into a QB1 with Jim Bob Cooter as offensive coordinator. They have some holes to fill, but Stafford's fantasy stock is back off life support and in the mid-to-low QB1 range.
