Detroit Lions news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has been one of the most consistent pass-catching running backs in all of the NFL this year. He should be regarded as an every-week starter in PPR scoring formats.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson had a hay day Thursday, Nov. 26, against the Philadelphia Eagles. Stafford threw for 337 yards and five touchdowns, while Johnson caught eight passes for 93 yards and three touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford and Johnson had their best outing of the year combined in a rout of the Eagles on Thanksgiving. The Lions have really struggled in 2015, but they really rewarded fantasy owners who stuck with them this week. This may turn out to be their best combined game of the season, but it could be a positive sign of things to come.

Fantasy Tip: Calvin Johnson (ankle) is active against the Philadelphia Eagles. Megatron ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) is a high-end WR2 consideration with a very good matchup on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) dropped an easy touchdown pass in Week 11 and finished with no catches to severely disappoint his daily owners in a pristine matchup. He admits to being set back by essentially a new offense under Jim Bob Cooter. It's probably best to avoid Ebron until he shows he is once again a viable fantasy option for FantasyScore users.

Detroit Lions S Don Carey (back), DT Caraun Reid (ankle), CB Darius Slay (neck) and DT Gabe Wright (ankle) are questionable for Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Nov. 26. CB Crezdon Butler (teeth) is probable. Reid, Wright and Butler were limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, while Carey and Slay practiced in full.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Nov. 26. However, Johnson is expected to be available to play against the Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: The Eagles secondary has been pretty awful all season, especially of late. Matthew Stafford should have no problem connecting with Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) for what could easily be the receiver's best game of the year. Pay up for Megatron on Thanksgiving.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said his slump will end this week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ebron has seven catches for 52 yards and three drops the last three games. Ebron said he has had to make some minor adjustments to new coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's offense that have contributed to his struggles in recent weeks. "He wants things different ways," Ebron said. "So you just have to adjust to him and as soon as I got comfortable where I was at, we had a change. So now I just got to adjust to it, and just pick up where I left off. I'll be all right."
Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) faces an Eagles team that has been among the best handful of teams against the position the last five weeks. He's a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said his recent struggles will end this week. Ebron did not catch a pass last week against the Oakland Raiders and has only totaled seven catches for 52 yards the last three weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is just too big of a risk to consider starting right now, especially against the Philadelphia Eagles, who have only yielded two touchdowns and 41.9 yards per game to tight ends this year.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) was a bust for daily players in an excellent matchup last week, catching zero passes on zero targets. He's had a decent year, but it's hard to predict when he'll break out, and he's facing an unfavorable matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) is expected to be fine on a short week in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are the best matchup for receivers in PPR leagues like FantasyScore, so using Johnson in your daily lineups this week is certainly recommended.
