Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater hit his only field-goal attempt while also knocking two extra points in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Prater has now made 15 straight field goals dating back to Week 7. Unfortunately for Prater, he hasn't received many opportunities recently because the Lions offense has been struggling. Either way, he's been... Read More

The Detroit Lions defense/special teams allowed just three points to the Cardinals in Sunday's win. Darius Slay recorded his third interception of the season, picking off Josh Rosen and returning it for a touchdown in the third quarter. Aside from the pick six, the defense also registered three sacks, making it a tough day for... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Levine Toilolo hauled in both of his targets for 26 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Toilolo finished second on the team in yards and tied for second in receptions, which ultimately says how rough of a day it was for the Lions offense. However, it does support a trend... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Michael Roberts did not register a catch in Sunday's win over the Cardinals despite being targeted twice. It was a bad day all around for the Lions passing attack as Matthew Stafford did not throw a touchdown but that also spells bad news for fantasy owners. The Lions tight end position... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver TJ Jones wasn't able to corral his only target on Sunday against the Cardinals. The goose egg halts Jones' streak of six games where he caught at least one pass. It's odd to see how under utilized the 26-year-old is, seeing as how many of the Lions offensive skill position players... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Bruce Ellington caught all four of his targets for just 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Ellington was forced to leave the game in the third quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return. The 27-year-old has now caught at least four passes in every game since joining... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay had just two receptions for five yards in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. This is the second-year receiver's worst game of the season; however, his quarterback had arguably his worst statistical game of his career. Golladay is a great pass catcher but he plays on a team whose... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Zach Zenner rushed for 54 yards on 12 carries and scored his first touchdown of the season in the 17-3 win over the Cardinals. Since re-signing with the Lions earlier in the season and returning from injury in Week 9, Zenner has received breadcrumbs in the Lions rushing attack. However, that... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick took six carries for 28 yards and caught all four of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. The 27-year-old still has yet to find pay dirt this season but continues to be a steady low-ceiling flex option in PPR leagues. Next week, the Lions... Read More

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount rushed for 33 yards on 12 carries and also caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Rookie Kerryon Johnson (knee) missed a third straight game so Blount had a chance to have a solid day; however Zach Zenner came in and stole the... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 15 of 23 for just 101 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Arizona Cardinals. This is arguably the worst statistical game in Stafford's career. Including Sunday's win, Stafford hasn't thrown for more than 245 yards in four straight games and has just two touchdowns in... Read More

The Detroit Lions defense/special teams is coming off a thrashing at the hands of Todd Gurley and the LA Rams. The Lions allowed Gurley to rush for 132 yards and two touchdowns; it was the first time the Lions allowed 100 yards rushing since Week 9. While Detroit is very banged up with Darius Slay,... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder) has been a full participant in practice this week after missing last week’s game against the Rams. The second-year man has been eating up red zone targets; in his seven games played, he has seven targets inside the 20-yard line. It’s led to three touchdowns this season; however,... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Luke Willson played a season-high 50 snaps last week against the Rams, but it only resulted in one reception for eight yards. Fellow tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder) should be returning to game action this week after missing one game, which will definitely take snaps away from Willson. Regardless, Willson holds... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver TJ Jones has been a big disappointment since the departure of Golden Tate combined with the injury absence of Marvin Jones. In his last six games, the former Jones has just seven receptions for 93 yards and no touchdowns. Injuries and tough matchups have riddled the Lions, but their offense has... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Bruce Ellington has been a steady source of receptions since joining the Lions, but that’s all about all he has to his name. He even had a career high 10 targets in Week 13, but in his three games combined as a Lion he has accumulated just 115 yards on 19... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (quad) has been limited at practice this week and unfortunately will likely be drawing a matchup with the Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson on Sunday. Golladay has been the Lions’ WR1 the last two weeks with Marvin Jones out for the season, and that will continue as long as he is... Read More

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount has rushed for 149 yards in his last two games. That’s not far off from the 183 yards he accrued through the first 10 games of the season. He didn’t find the end zone in Week 13 which renders him pretty useless for fantasy purposes. A Week 14 matchup... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick had his highest rushing totals of the season in Week 13, taking eight carries for 32 yards. However, it was at the expense of his workload in the passing game that has kept him fantasy relevant for almost the entirety of his career. With Kerryon Johnson still not practicing,... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford hasn’t provided steady fantasy production in several weeks now. It doesn’t help that Stafford is now dealing with a back injury that has limited him in practice this week. However, if he good to go against the Cardinals, he has a chance to recover from his recent inconsistent play. He’s... Read More

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater was perfect on three field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Prater has now made 14 consecutive field goals, and this game was his fourth time this season where he's hit at least three field goals in one game. The 34-year-old's success came at the hands of the... Read More

The Detroit Lions defense allowed 344 yards of offense to the LA Rams in Sunday's 30-16 loss. Quandre Diggs recorded an interception and Damon Harrison strip sacked Jared Goff, also recovering the loose ball. This is the fourth multiple-takeaway game for Detroit this season. All things considered, Detroit managed to slow down LA for the... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Luke Willson caught one of his two targets for eight yards in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. This is par for the course with Willson as even when he does get targets, they aren’t very productive. Willson has been a serious let down in an offense that has relied on passing... Read More

Detroit Lions tight end Levine Toilolo had the best day of his career on Sunday, catching four passes for 90 yards. While he wasn’t able to find the end zone, Toilolo was a big part of the offense, drawing six targets. With Michael Roberts (shoulder) inactive, Toilolo was Matthew Stafford’s preferred tight end target. This... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver TJ Jones caught his only target for 25 yards on Sunday against the Rams. His reception was one of the longest plays of the day for Detroit but it didn’t produce points for the Lions. Even if he had found the end zone, it is almost impossible to trust anyone on... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Bruce Ellington saw a career-high 10 targets on Sunday, catching seven of them for a paltry 35 yards. His reception total is great in PPR leagues but his yardage total leaves a lot to be desired. He has yet to top 52 yards receiving in his three games with the Lions.... Read More

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was targeted eight times, catching just three of them for 50 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. It’s the fourth straight week that Golladay has seen at least eight targets, but not being able to find the end zone definitely hurt his value on Sunday. The Lions offense... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick took eight carries for 32 yards, while catching three of four targets for another 26 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. His workload in the running game were his highest totals of the season. It’s not too often that the 27-year-old is used more in the run game... Read More

Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount toted 16 carries for 61 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. The game was a lot closer than many had anticipated, with LA just leading by three at 16-13 heading into the final quarter, meaning Blount was a bigger part of the game plan. Interestingly enough, fellow back... Read More

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finished 20 of 33 for 245 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the 30-16 loss to the LA Rams. He was also strip sacked by Aaron Donald in the loss. The team’s only touchdown was a Stafford pass to offensive lineman Taylor Decker, which is telling of the... Read More
