Lions | Theo Riddick totals 12 touches

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:51:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for 20 yards while added three receptions for 17 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: With Ameer Abdullah back to 100 percent health, Riddick will have to share the touches in the Detroit backfield. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal in most standard fantasy formats, but he is a solid RB3 or flex play in most PPR leagues. The Lions host the Falcons in Week 3.

Lions | Kenny Golladay disappears in Week 2

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:50:34 -0700

Detroit Lions rookie WR Kenny Golladay managed just one catch for eight yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 8. He was targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: Golladay burst onto the scene with touchdowns in Week 1 against the Cardinals, but he looked like a rookie on Monday night. With a young player you can expect inconsistency and growing pains. It looks like he'll be a threat in the red zone, but for now he is nothing more than a WR5 with upside heading into Week 3 against the Falcons.

Lions | Golden Tate posts four receptions

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:50:02 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted four catches for 25 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Tate had four of the six catches by Detroit wide receivers, but no one really had a huge night with an offense that was run heavy. He'll look for better results in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons.

Lions | Marvin Jones cashes in only catch

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:49:31 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones had just one catch in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18, but it was good for a 27-yard touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was tied for the team high with five targets, but he and Matthew Stafford were unable to connect. He'll look for more receptions in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons. He remains more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues at this point.

Lions | Eric Ebron finds end zone on MNF

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:48:55 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron hauled in five balls for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron, whose hometown is nearby Jersey City, N.J., seemed to play with a little more purpose. He has always had the potential to be a star in this league but health has been major hurdle. If he can stay healthy he might be on track for a special season in 2017.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah runs for 86 yards

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:48:15 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah carried 17 times for 86 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah averaged 5.1 yards per carry, but the streak continues for the Lions. They haven't had a 100-yard runner in a single game since Thanksgiving of 2013 when Reggie Bush hit the mark. If Abdullah continues to run with authority, he'll be the next 100-yard runner for the Honolulu Blue and Silver. He'll try to hit the mark in Week 3 when the Falcons come calling.

Lions | Matthew Stafford tosses two TDs in win

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:47:49 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 15 of his 21 pass attempts for 122 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Stafford also added three runs for 23 yards. While he didn't have a great nightly statistically for fantasy owners, he didn't make any mistakes and was helped out by a solid run game. Down the road, the threat of the run will open up even more field for Stafford to excel. He'll look for better results in Week 3 when the Falcons visit Ford Field.

Lions | Golden Tate on track to play

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 11:25:11 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (finger) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Tate recorded 10 catches and 107 yards in Week 1 and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He will be facing a tougher defense this week but should still be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues.
