• Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 12/7/16 1:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Jones was limited in practice last week too and ended up not playing, so don't start getting all positive about his status just yet. If Jones is sidelined again or limited at all then Golden Tate should be viewed as a WR1 versus the mediocre Chicago Bears pass defense.

  • Eric Ebron - TE
    Posted 12/7/16 2:11pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Ebron was targeted more frequently than usual last week, but that was partly because Marvin Jones was sidelined. If Jones is active then Ebron's value takes a decrease, but he remains a low-end TE1 option.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 12/7/16 2:02pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: It seems unlikely that Riddick would sit this week after being able to play last week while not at 100%. If the shifty running back is unexpectedly sidelined, however, then Dwayne Washington would make for a sleeper option in deeper standard leagues.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 12/4/16 7:01am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) is expected to play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Riddick was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He has been an integral part of Detroit's running and passing game and should continue to be viewed as a solid RB2 option, especially in PPR formats.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 7:37am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) is considered a long shot to play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jones was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. If he is officially declared inactive, WRs Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin should see an increase in fantasy value, along with TE Eric Ebron and RB Theo Riddick.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 8:58am ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) will not play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Jones will be sidelined despite participating in practice on a limited basis throughout the week. Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin, Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick should each see an increased number of targets versus New Orleans as a result.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 12/4/16 9:14am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Riddick should receive most of the work at running back against the New Orleans Saints and should also be involved in the passing game. He should be a solid No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 2:17pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw for 341 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Dec. 4.

    Huddle Up: Stafford methodically picked apart the Saints' defense for his scores, including a 66-yard strike to WR Golden Tate. Stafford has struggled at times to get the offense going this year, but he remains a strong QB1 thanks mainly to his choice of weapons on offense.

  • Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 2:42pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight catches and 145 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown scamper, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Tate took advantage of a porous Saints pass defense on his long touchdown, but the bigger story is how well Tate did overall. Take away that long TD and he still had 79 receiving yards. Tate is a strong WR1 on a Lions squad with plenty of pass-catching options.

  • Matt Prater - PK
    Posted 12/4/16 2:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater kicked four field goals Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Prater remains a safe bet for fantasy owners, who have come to see Prater rarely miss a field goal or extra point. In this day and age of kickers missing PATs, this is a good sign. If you need a strong kicker to close out your season or go to the playoffs, pick up Prater if he is available.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 12/2/16 4:43pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Jones had a decent outing in Week 12 with 54 yards, but he has posted at least 55 yards in only one of his last seven games. Jones should have a favorable matchup in Week 13 and can be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 12/2/16 4:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Riddick should be able to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has been a factor in the running and passing game and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 12/1/16 2:20pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Jones has been somewhat dormant since the first few weeks of the season, but facing the New Orleans Saints is a prime opportunity for a rebound. Most position players in this contest are startable, Jones included. View him as a WR3 with WR2 potential.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 12/1/16 2:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: There are no indications that Riddick will be missing this game, as long as he doesn't have any setbacks between now and kickoff. He's one of the more underrated running backs this week as he should be heavily involved in the passing game in what could be a shootout with the New Orleans Saints. He has high-end RB2 upside in PPR leagues.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/30/16 1:23pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Riddick had an off week last week, but he's primed for a rebound performance in a great matchup versus the New Orleans Saints. He should continue to split time in the running game, but his value in the passing game makes him an RB2 option in PPR formats.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 11/30/16 1:17pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: The Lions' matchup with the New Orleans Saints is one of the most promising games of the week. Jones has been quiet since making himself known earlier in the year, but he should not be overlooked in what could be a high-scoring affair. If he's active, he should be started as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB
    Posted 11/24/16 5:53am ET

    Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah's (foot) foot is structurally sound, and it's up to the team how to accelerate his rehab.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah would need at least a week or two of practice if he's designated to return. Keep him stashed in all formats.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/24/16 1:21pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick only managed 58 yards from scrimmage Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Riddick and the rest of the offense were definitely in one of their tougher matchups of the year against the Minnesota Vikings. He'll continue to lead the Lions in touches out of the backfield as long as he's healthy, though. Don't be terribly discouraged by this outing.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 11/24/16 1:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford threw for 232 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 24. He also ran for 30 yards.

    Huddle Up: Stafford struggled at times, particularly in the second half, but his 262 total yards and touchdown should suffice for those who started him in a tougher matchup. He's usually a QB1 option on a week-to-week basis.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/23/16 1:46pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Riddick should be able to play this week and probably will see the majority of snaps at running back. His ability to produce in the running and passing game is why he should be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/22/16 1:30pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Riddick was hampered last week, too, but he still turned in a nice day in the passing game. That could be the case again this week if he is active. Look for his practice status tomorrow. If he's still limited then he'll be considered questionable.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB
    Posted 11/22/16 4:50pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah's (foot) checkup with Dr. Robert Anderson went well Tuesday, Nov. 22, according to a source. Abdullah is a consideration for the Lions' designated-to-return player from the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: It will still be a good deal of time before Abdullah is able to actually play in a game again, so he may not return this season. Theo Riddick remains Detroit's best bet at running back while Abdullah is out, but Abdullah is worth a stash for teams in need of possible running back help during the fantasy playoffs.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/21/16 3:13pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Lions did not practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Riddick did most of his damage in the passing game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 where he had 70 yards receiving. Riddick will continue to be the team's No. 1 running back and should be considered a solid No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/20/16 7:38am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) will play in Week 11's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Riddick had been limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a RB2 in standard fantasy leagues, with added value in PPR formats.

  • Ameer Abdullah - RB
    Posted 11/20/16 7:57am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) will visit Dr. Robert Anderson Tuesday, Nov. 22, in order to find out if he can resume practicing.

    Huddle Up: Abdullah is on injured reserve due to a torn ligament in his left foot and there is still a possibility that he could miss the rest of the season. Theo Riddick is serving as Detroit's No. 1 back in his absence and he should be viewed as a RB2 in all formats, with added value in PPR leagues.

  • Marvin Jones - WR
    Posted 11/20/16 5:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones posted just one catch for 15 yards on two targets in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Jones started off on fire, but he has been very quiet in recent weeks. He has plenty of potential, but right now is nothing more than a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Eric Ebron - TE
    Posted 11/20/16 5:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron hauled in three receptions for 70 yards in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted five times and he also had one run for one yard and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Ebron has posted 70 or more receiving yards in each of the past three outings, re-emerging as a low-end TE1 after a slow start due to injury.

  • Golden Tate - WR
    Posted 11/20/16 5:54pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted three receptions for 27 yards in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Tate crushed his fantasy owners with three grabs, his fewest since Week 5. He entered with 32 receptions over the past four outings with at least 79 yards in three of the four games. Tate will look to rebound in Week 12 against the Vikings on Thanksgiving. He posted 11 grabs for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 in the first meeting in Minnesota.

  • Theo Riddick - RB
    Posted 11/20/16 5:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (finger) said Sunday, Nov. 20, that he caught his hand in a helmet in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He said it shouldn't affect his ability to carry the ball going forward.

    Huddle Up: Riddick rushed for 13 yards, but hauled in eight receptions for 70 yards on a game-high 10 targets. He is a must-start fantasy option in PPR formats heading into the Thanksgiving game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

  • Matthew Stafford - QB
    Posted 11/20/16 5:56pm ET

    Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 24 of his 33 pass attempts for 278 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran twice for no gain.

    Huddle Up: Stafford failed to find the end zone for just the second time in 10 starts. He'll face the Vikings pass defense on Thanksgiving in a crucial NFC North battle. He threw for 219 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 9 matchup with Minnesota.
