Lions | Golden Tate still Detroit's No. 1 WR?

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 21:32:42 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is still the top option in the passing game, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, and Cooter said Tate's slow start is a product of the offense's emphasis of spreading the ball around.

Fantasy Tip: While Marvin Jones and Theo Riddick thrive, Tate has just 94 yards through three games. Tate should have his chance to shine at some point, and he has enough upside to use as a WR3 against a winless Bears team in Week 4.

Lions | Marvin Jones questionable

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 17:27:46 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Jones should be able to play in Week 4 and likely will receive a solid amount of targets. He should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues since it will be a favorable matchup.

Lions | Eric Ebron listed as questionable

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 17:23:06 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron should be able to play this week since he was a full participant in practice. He has been a solid part of the team's passing game this season and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Lions | Marvin Jones 'looked fine' Friday

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 10:03:14 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) participated in the team's open practice Friday, Sept. 30, and appears to be a full-go for Week 4 versus the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Jones gave owners a bit of a scare by showing up on the injury report Thursday, but it appears if the issue is a minor one at most. Coming off his six-catch, 205-yard, two-touchdown effort in Week 3, Jones is a no-brainer WR1 option against the Bears' beat-up defense.

Lions | Marvin Jones limited in practice Thursday

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:55:09 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Despite drawing the 'limited participant' tag, Jones should be fine to play in the team's Week 4 contest opposite the Chicago Bears. As long as he's healthy, the former Cincinnati Bengal can be leaned upon in a plus matchup, with him emerging as the decisive No. 1 wide-out in Detroit in the early going. Of course, though, owners should keep an eye on his status in the coming days.

Lions | Dwayne Washington to see more carries?

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:36:50 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington is likely to see more carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer Tim Twentyman. The Bears rank 30th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the week Washington either breaks out. Theo Riddick should remain heavily involved, but he is more of a receiving back. Both are flex options in fantasy.

Lions | Eric Ebron sits out

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:49:35 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has not missed any time because of the injury and has posted decent numbers in each of the first three games of the season. Ebron should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and could be a No. 1 tight end for owners.

Lions | Aaron Dobson re-signs with Lions

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:52:53 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Aaron Dobson re-signed to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: In his second try with Detroit, there are still not enough targets to go around for Dobson to have fantasy relevance. He can be left on the waiver wire.
