Lions | Reggie Bush limited at practice

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 13:41:49 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited at practice Monday, Nov. 24. The Lions didn't practice Monday, however, so Bush's designation is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Bush was expected to return in Week 12, but he didn't. The Lions are being extremely cautious with his return, so it's unknown if he'll play Thursday against the Chicago Bears. If he does, his FantasyScore price is unlikely to be worth a lineup entry for your team.

Lions | Calvin Johnson sits out Monday

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 13:39:36 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) did not practice Monday, Nov. 24. The Lions didn't practice Monday, so Johnson's designation is an estimation. Johnson has battled an ankle injury since Week 3, but he's played the last three weeks, although he remains less than 100 percent and hasn't reached 60 yards in either of the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron was held in check by Brandon Browner Sunday, and Johnson continues to disappoint those that have spent heavily on him at FantasyScore since returning from his injury. Have no fear, though, as he should get back on track on Thanksgiving day against a Chicago Bears defense that is friendly to wide receivers.

Lions | Dominic Raiola's cut block an issue

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 11:19:46 -0800

Lions | Golden Tate hits 1,000 yards

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:44:24 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate had four receptions for 97 yards in Week 12 against the New England Patriots. He went over 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has emerged as a must-start option in FantasyScore score with or without Calvin Johnson lining up on the opposite side.

Lions | Reggie Bush inactive

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:29:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for Week 12 Sunday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option today, and Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) makes a risky flex option in Week 12.

Lions | Reggie Bush absent from warmups

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:03:50 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was not spotted during early warmups Sunday, Nov. 23, and he's unlikely to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option with Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) a fairly risky option in Week 12.

Lions | Reggie Bush likely out

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 14:30:25 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely out for Week 12 and is targeting the Thanksgiving Day game Thursday, Nov. 27, to return.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option with Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) a lesser flex certainty in Week 12. The long layoff may give Bush a chance to return fresh in Week 13 and be more of a factor than he has been thus far.

Lions | Matthew Stafford struggling on deep ball

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 15:21:44 -0800

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, who is currently on pace to finish with the fewest passing yards in a single season for his career, has struggled on deep-ball connections, especially in the last two weeks with WR Calvin Johnson returning. Stafford has completed only 14 percent of his passes at least 20 yards downfield to Johnson the last two weeks, and he's thrown an interception on deep targets in each of the pair's four full games together. Stafford is also struggling in the face of pressure this year, with his completion percentage under pressure dropping from 42 percent last year to 34 percent in 2014, his lowest since 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford and Johnson haven't been able to connect like years past, and Johnson's nagging ankle injury is likely the biggest culprit. With a smaller playbook against the New England Patriots this weekend, this could be the week that Stafford starts to turn things around, though; New England has allowed 21.33 fantasy points per game to QBs in the last four weeks.
