Lions | Calvin Johnson expected to sit Friday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:24:50 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is not expected to play in the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson does not need a lot of preseason work to be ready for the start of the regular season, so the team is being safe with him. Johnson has dealt with injuries over the past few seasons but has posted at least 1,000 yards in each of his last five seasons. Johnson should be an early-round pick in most drafts this season.

Lions | Detroit will use committee at RB

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:53:48 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford said the Lions will still take a committee approach at running back even when Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') returns.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jim Caldwell recently said he expects to come back as a bellcow running back, so we may have to wait until the regular starts to see how much Bell and Ameer Abdullah are used. If Bell stays healthy, he has RB2 upside. Abdullah is a speculative RB3 with RB2 potential in PPR leagues.

Lions | Detroit HC talks Joique Bell

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:01:14 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') is expected to return this season as a bellcow running back, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Bell has been nursing injuries all offseason, but Caldwell still envisions him producing similarly to how he did last year.

Fantasy Tip: Bell has rushed for 15 combined touchdowns the last two seasons. Ameer Abdullah, and even Theo Riddick, will cut into his playing time this year, but he still has RB2 potential if he can get healthy and stay healthy.

Lions | Zach Zenner open to playing special teams

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 07:18:04 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner said he is willing to play on special teams in order to make the final roster. "I didn't expect to come in, as an undrafted guy, and start getting the ball 30 times a game," Zenner said. "That's just not how the NFL works. I expected that. I was prepared to make an impact on special teams and that's what I've been preparing to do." Zenner is competing with RB George Winn for a roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Zenner has performed well during training camp, but he will have to work on special teams since he will not see regular playing time on offense. Zenner probably should be avoided during fantasy drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option if he receives a bigger role.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah sees limited time Thursday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:15:34 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah received only seven offense snaps during the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20. Head coach Jim Caldwell said the flow of the game determined his playing time.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions may want to be cautious with Abdullah since he should have a solid role on offense this season. Abdullah could be a middle- to late-round option depending on the size of leagues and could also be a flex option against some opponents.

Lions | Zach Zenner performing well

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:49:27 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner has shown good vision and balance during preseason games with the ability to gain extra yards. Zenner is competing for a roster spot during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Zenner has is turning some heads during camp, but he likely would not see much playing time since he will be behind Joique Bell, Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick on the depth chart. Owners could keep an eye on him during the early part of the season since he could be a waiver wire option.
