Lions | Eric Ebron may see bigger role

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:17:01 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he hopes to become a safety net for QB Matthew Stafford in 2016 since WR Calvin Johnson decided to retire.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron should receive more targets because of the receiver situation and could become a focal point in the passing game. He probably will be a late-round option in most leagues and will be a No. 2 tight end or low-end starter in deeper leagues.

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 15:02:06 -0700

Lions | Matthew Stafford won't be traded

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 13:54:56 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford will not be traded, according to general manager Bob Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford has had his ups and downs with the Lions over the years. He has always flirted with being a borderline QB1 and a high-end QB2. The loss of Calvin Johnson really hurts his fantasy value, obviously, so it might be safer to take him more as a high-end QB2.
