Lions | Theo Riddick does not practice

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 19:49:10 -0700

Lions | Quiet night for Kerryon Johnson

Fri, 17 Aug 2018 19:32:09 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed four times for nine yards and caught one pass for 10 yards in a 30-17 preseason loss to the New York Giants Friday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Although Johnson didn't back up his huge performance from the first preseason game, he did play with the first-team. He should have a role on early downs immediately, and he could emerge as the lead back sooner rather than later. He is well worth the investment as a RB4, and he should be a first-round selection in rookie drafts.

Lions | LeGarrette Blount busy Friday

Fri, 17 Aug 2018 19:22:33 -0700

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 11 times for 32 yards in a 30-17 preseason loss to the New York Giants Friday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Blount received 11 of the 23 carries, and he should serve as the power back this year. His potential to find the end zone makes him worth grabbing as a RB4.
