• Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 10/16/17 10:14am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI soon, but the expectation is he will miss 'some time,' according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tate and his fantasy owners catch a bit of a break with Detroit on bye in Week 7, but the source believes he will miss a few weeks, leaving the Lions without their top receiver. His expected absence could free up targets in the slot for Eric Ebron or help the team get Theo Riddick more involved in the passing game once again. Detroit could also be getting Kenny Golladay from a hamstring injury, although he is not going to replace Tate's snaps in the slot.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 7:50am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 6's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Marvin Jones should see more targets if Golladay is inactive but he should only be considered as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Eric Ebron - TE
    Posted 10/15/17 4:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed just one catch for nine yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints on a total of three targets.

    Huddle Up: Ebron appears to be behind Darren Fells on the depth chart right now. That's rather unofficial, but Matthew Stafford has found Fells for three touchdowns over the past two games while not trusting Ebron. The Lions are off in Week 7.

  • Darren Fells - TE
    Posted 10/15/17 4:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Darren Fells posted two grabs for 26 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Fells has hauled in three touchdowns over the past two games after doing nothing in the first four outings. Despite the scoring ways, Fells is only worth a look as a bye-week replacement or low-priced DFS option going forward. The team is off in Week 7 for its bye.

  • Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 4:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Tate had his largest yardage total since he opened the season with 107 yards on 10 grabs in Week 1 against the Cardinals. He has been a bit erratic so far this season, but he has WR3 potential when the matchup is favorable. Unfortunately the Lions have a bye in Week 7.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 4:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up six receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jones was the only player in the game with double-digit targets, and he had five more than teammate T.J. Jones. The yardage total was easily his best of the season, besting the 54 yards he posted last week. That's 12 catches over the past two weekends, so perhaps he can be trusted again as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues. Of course, just as he was building momentum the team has a bye in Week 7.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 4:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed twice for eight yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints while adding five receptions for 45 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick is far more valuable in PPR fantasy leagues than standard formats. The Lions are off in Week 7.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 4:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 14 times for 54 yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. He was also targeted twice in the pass game but did not have any catches.

    Huddle Up: The Lions continue to search for that elusive 100-yard rushing game, but it hasn't happened in four years since Reggie Bush accomplished the feat last in 2013. It won't happen again in Week 7, either, as the team is on its bye.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/15/17 4:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 25 of his 52 pass attempts for 312 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints and he lost a pair of fumbles.

    Huddle Up: Stafford was officially listed as questionable for the game due to an ankle injury, but he showed no ill effects of the injury. He remains a solid fantasy starter, although you'll need to make alternate plans in Week 7 with the team on a bye.

  • Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 5:56pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury late in the third quarter of the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Tate had a nice game, so hopefully this injury isn't something to keep him out long. The good news is that he has two weeks to rest with the bye Week 7.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR
    Posted 10/13/17 8:41am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) isn't participating in practice Friday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't look like he'll be an option against the New Orleans Saints this week. Marvin Jones has received 12 targets the last two weeks, but he hasn't done a lot with them. He's a fringe flex option this week.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR
    Posted 10/13/17 2:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Golladay may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list for his status. He has not done much in the passing game since his terrific Week 1 performance and could see limited targets if he plays in Week 6. Owners may want to consider other options to use and avoid Golladay this week.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/13/17 2:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Stafford should be able to play this week as long as he does not suffer a setback in the next few days. He has not thrown for at least 300 yards yet this season but should have a favorable matchup this week. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/13/17 4:47pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) is expected to play in the team's Week 6 game even though he is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Stafford was a full participant in practice all week and should receive his normal workload against the New Orleans Saints. He has not posted big numbers so far this season but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback this week because of the matchup.

  • Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 10/13/17 9:06pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, and he has averaged eight catches for 115 yards and a touchdown in his last three meetings with the Saints.

    Huddle Up: Tate leads the team in targets, receptions and yards, and he should be a strong WR2 in a friendly matchup against the Saints.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/13/17 9:18pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, and in his last two meetings with the Saints, he has completed 52 of his 67 passes for 595 yards and five touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Stafford is expected to play through an ankle injury this weekend, and his recent history of success against New Orleans could continue. Only the New England Patriots have allowed more yards per pass attempt than the Saints this season.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR
    Posted 10/12/17 2:33pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has missed the last few games because of the injury but appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 6. He has a chance to be the No. 3 receiver for the Lions when he returns but may be eased back into the offense after missing games. Golladay could be a flex option in some leagues because of his favorable matchup this week.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/12/17 2:43pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Stafford appears to be on track to play this week against the New Orleans Saints this week as long as he does not suffer a setback. He has thrown for at least 250 yards in only two games this season but can still be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/11/17 1:29pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) put in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Stafford apparently has somewhat of a limp, but the fact that he had a full practice is a sigh of relief. He's a terrific start this week versus one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL in the New Orleans Saints in what could be a barn burner.

  • Kenny Golladay - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 1:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Matthew Stafford and the Lions' offense could really use another downfield threat, which is Golladay's role. Golladay will help open up the offense but would be a risky start even in a favorable matchup coming off a multiple-week absence.

  • Eric Ebron - TE
    Posted 10/10/17 3:25pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron met with QB Matthew Stafford Monday, Oct. 9, in an effort to correct the slump he's been in this season. Ebron said he is 'in the dumps' mentally and needs to get his act together. Through five games this year, Ebron has managed just 12 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Ebron seems to disappoint season after season, but the fact that he is meeting with Stafford and trying to get out of his funk is encouraging. Until he starts performing consistently well, though, Ebron belongs on fantasy benches.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/9/17 5:47am ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle, quadriceps) finished the Week 5 game with heavy tape on his ankle and quadriceps.

    Huddle Up: Keep an eye out for updates, but he's expected to be fine for the New Orleans Saints in Week 6. Stafford will be a high-end QB1 option if he's healthy.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 10/9/17 12:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle, quadriceps) is dealing with ankle and quadriceps injuries, but the Lions are optimistic that he will play in Week 6, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Stafford's practice participation this week to see if he is in any danger of missing the game. He has not thrown for 300 yards in any game this season but does have nine touchdowns and only one interception in five games. He will be a risky option this week but can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback because of the matchup.

  • Eric Ebron - TE
    Posted 10/8/17 3:27pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted just one catch for six yards on four targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Ebron was overshadowed by Darren Fells, as Matthew Stafford hit that veteran tight end for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, much to the dismay of Ebron's fantasy owners. He came into the league with so much potential, but injuries and inconsistent play have really limited his usefulness.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 3:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed twice for eight yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers while adding four receptions for 45 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick doesn't do much in the run game, and he likely never will. But he has soft hands out of the backfield, reeling in three or more catches in four of his five games. He remains a decent RB3 or flex play in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 6 against the Saints.

  • Darren Fells - TE
    Posted 10/8/17 3:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Darren Fells cashed in both of his targets for touchdowns in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers, finishing with 24 yards.

    Huddle Up: Fells didn't do anything until the fourth quarter, so don't get overly excited about this performance. He was targeted zero times in the first three quarters, and Eric Ebron is still going to outperform him over time. It might be tempting to grab him for Week 6 in New Orleans, but he still isn't likely to have a big game.

  • Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 3:25pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate managed five catches for 48 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Tate has 29 grabs on 40 targets through five games which is good for fantasy owners, but he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 1 while visiting the end zone just once back in Week 3. Both of those streaks could end in Week 6 when he faces a favorable matchup down in New Orleans.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 3:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones hauled in six receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: The six receptions and 54 yards were each season bests, as he entered the game with just eight grabs for 130 yards through his first four outings. He is still nothing more than a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 despite the favorable matchup in New Orleans.

  • Zach Zenner - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 3:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner rushed three times for 11 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Zenner found the end zone, which is nice, but he isn't used nearly enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of leagues. Unless Ameer Abdullah goes down to injury, Zenner's touch rate isn't about to change.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 3:23pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 10 times for 31 yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers, and he added one reception for three yards.

    Huddle Up: The Lions continue to search for a 100-yard rusher in a single game, and no one was close in this one. Abdullah has had a few decent performances lately, so this was a bit of a disappointment. He'll look for better results in Week 6, and he should see plenty of wide-open spaces in New Orleans against a leaky Saints defense.
