Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford won't be throwing more than he did last season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Caldwell said if the Lions are throwing a lot, it could very well mean they'll be playing catch up, something he wants to avoid.
Fantasy Tip: Stafford "only" had 602 pass attempts in 2014, fewer than the three previous years. The one drawback to Stafford's game is that he doesn't throw a lot of touchdowns, which has hindered his maximum potential as far as fantasy football is concerned. He's still a No. 1 QB option, however, especially with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate at his disposal.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was limited to 248 receiving yards and one touchdown this past season, but he could have a bigger role next season. Owners should consider Ebron as a No. 2 tight end entering drafts next season.

Detroit Lions LB Tahir Whitehead could compete with LB Kyle Van Noy and possibly LB Josh Bynes for the starting strongside linebacker job during training camp. Whitehead could be used as the backup at middle linebacker.

Detroit Lions LB Stephen Tulloch (knee) will be the starting middle linebacker when he is able to return from his torn anterior cruciate ligament. Tulloch is making good progress in his rehab but may sit out offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gurley is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but has a chance to be selected in the first round of the draft. Joique Bell is believed to be the No. 1 running back at the moment, but Gurley could compete for the job if the Lions use a high-round pick on Gurley. Owners will have to see where Gurley lands before having a good idea of his status, but he likely will have more value in non-point-per-reception leagues.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew's $2.8 million base salary became guaranteed on the third day of the league year, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press believes it is a sign that he will be used a lot in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Although Pettigrew has seen his role as a pass-catcher decrease in recent years, his blocking skills will keep him on the field and could limit the upside of fellow tight end Eric Ebron.
