Lions | Ziggy Ansah hopeful for Week 1

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 06:28:08 -0700

Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah (ankle) hasn't practiced at all in camp, but the team is hopeful he'll be ready for Week 1. Ansah suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 last season, which hindered him all year.

Lions | Kenny Golladay pushing for starting spot

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 06:31:10 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay has shown signs that it won't be long before he cracks the starting lineup. At 6-foot-4, he's a better fit for the outside, which could shift WR Golden Tate to the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Golladay has four catches for 59 yards and two scores in two preseason games, and he is gaining steam as a WR5 upside pick.

Lions | Golden Tate could shift to slot

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 06:30:37 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could play more in the slot with WR Kenny Golladay potentially ready for a starting spot outside.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is built more like a slot receiver, and he doesn't get enough credit for what he has done the last three seasons somewhat out of position on the outside. He'll remain their top receiving option, and the move could only be a positive. He's a strong WR2 in fantasy.

Lions | Eric Ebron still sitting out

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:36:34 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been dealing with the injury for several weeks, so owners will need to monitor the situation to see when he will be able to return to the field. Ebron has the potential to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues, but his injury history may make him drop in drafts.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah the clear No. 1 RB

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 08:08:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah has looked "sharp" throughout training camp, "appears to have retained the speed and agility" he had prior to his injury last season and should get almost all the work on early downs for Detroit this season, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein.

Fantasy Tip: Rothstein makes it clear he expects Theo Riddick to retain his passing-game role and Zach Zenner to be a goal-line presence, but he believes 1,000 yards rushing is very realistic for Abdullah this season. Given the fact he is unlikely to see much of the high-leverage work that would help his fantasy upside, the third-year back figures to be a low-end RB2 at best in 2017.

Lions | Eric Ebron remains sidelined

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 18:40:01 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has spent most of training camp on the sidelines because of his hamstring injury, so owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. He can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end when healthy, but owners probably should take another strong tight end option if they draft Ebron.

Lions | Eric Ebron misses practice

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:32:46 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Ebron suffered a setback or if the team is being cautious with him, but he probably will not play in the second preseason game. Ebron will have a role in the passing game if he is able to recover before the start of the season and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Lions | Kenny Golladay works with starters

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:21:18 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay worked exclusively with the first-team offense during practice Wednesday, Aug. 16, when they lined up in three-receiver sets. He lined up as an outside receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Golladay caught two touchdowns in the first preseason game and appears to have a chance to be the No. 3 receiver this season. Owners will need to keep an eye on him during the remaining preseason because he has a chance to be a No. 5 fantasy receiver if he has a solid role in the passing game.
