Lions | Kenny Golladay shines in preseason debut

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 12:55:12 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay finished with three catches for 53 yards and two touchdowns in the team's preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Golladay's first score on a catch in which his right arm was obstructed by cornerback Quincy Wilson and as he was falling into the end zone, while the second came on an underthrown fade-stop. Both receptions showed off the rookie's ability to play the ball in the air and justified the hype he has created during camp. While Golden Tate and Marvin Jones have secure holds on their starting jobs, Golladay is a solid stash in dynasty and could carry some WR5 value.

Lions | Dwayne Washington showing more patience

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 08:27:42 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington saw his playing time cut dramatically toward the end of last year in part because he was too often seeking the big play. However, according to running backs coach David Walker, he's "to the point he's kind of done a 180" as a player. "Last year, you could tell that he was a guy that was kind of like in training, so to speak. … He's mastering the offense much better than what he was a year ago. … Just because you can run real fast doesn't mean every time you've got to try to sprint around the edge when we hand you the ball on the outside. So he's fine. He's done a nice 180," Walker said.

Fantasy Tip: Washington could easily be the most physically gifted running back in Detroit, so he could have a role if he continues to impress. However, Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick figure to get the bulk of the work to start the season, so Washington can safely be avoided in most fantasy drafts.

Lions | Eric Ebron returns

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 06:41:19 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: For all the headaches he has caused fantasy owners with his propensity for injury, Ebron still has a lot of upside. He's a low-end TE1, which still presents quite a bit of room for draft day profit.

Lions | Coach has catch total in mind for Eric Ebron

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 17:51:30 -0700

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said he envisions TE Eric Ebron to be in the 60-catch range this season.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron caught 61 passes in 13 games last season, so he should be able to post similar numbers this season. He has posted only seven touchdowns in his three years in the NFL but is still a solid fantasy option because of his receptions and receiving yards. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
