Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) worked on a limited basis in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Abdullah looks more likely to play than not, rendering the weak Lions backfield full of even weaker plays because the workload will be split one more way this week.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford recovering quickly    Fri Dec 8, 12:20 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) appears to be on the right track in terms of his right hand injury healing enough for him to play in Week 14 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: That doesn't address whether Stafford's hand will affect his play enough to lower the ceiling of Golden Tate and Marvin Jones in a good matchup at Tampa. We would probably break ties in favor of the Lions receivers with their track record and Detroit's reliance on the pass, but Stafford isn't a solid QB1 this week.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah also limited    Thu Dec 7, 04:22 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: We're not confident Abdullah will be greenlit this weekend against Tampa Bay, which would make Theo Riddick the chief back, although he will split some carries with Tion Green. Riddick should serve as a decent RB3 with some upside depending on Matt Stafford's ability to throw with his injured hand.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford limited     Thu Dec 7, 04:18 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Stafford has us nervous this weekend. Tampa Bay doesn't exactly field a top-shelf defense, but Stafford has reportedly had issues holding the ball, forget throwing it. We need to see a little more Friday to feel comfortable with him as more than a low-end QB2 this week.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah limited in practice    Wed Dec 6, 04:26 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Abdullah missed Week 13 but it seems like he's on track to play this weekend. If he gets out there against the Buccaneers, Abdullah has RB2/flex appeal for fantasy owners in PPR leagues.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) was dressed for practice but did not participate Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: According to Jim Caldwell, Stafford is 'not out of the woods yet' with this hand injury. Fantasy owners need to have another option ready in case Stafford can't play in Week 14.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford not a sure thing    Wed Dec 6, 10:50 AM

Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) is 'not out of the woods yet,' with his bruised right hand, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are going to have to monitor Stafford as the week of practice goes on and have other options at the ready in case he was your QB1. Caldwell added the injury isn't insignificant, but the nerves and feeling in Stafford's hand are progressing.

  Lions | No fracture for Matthew Stafford    Sun Dec 3, 05:04 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) underwent X-rays on his injured right hand, but they did not show any fracture, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Stafford will be sore, but this indicates that he's likely to play next week. That being said, the condition of his hand could affect his ability and probably makes him a tougher start next week even though the Bucs have been a weak pass defense at times this year.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford injures hand    Sun Dec 3, 03:53 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hand) suffered a right hand injury in Week 13 and is considered questionable to return. He is undergoing X-rays on the hand.

Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 13 and is considered questionable to return.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford facing tough test    Sat Dec 2, 10:20 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford goes on the road to face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13, and the Ravens have allowed a league-low three touchdown passes in six home games this season.

Footballguys view: Stafford has a reasonably high floor this week, but his ceiling is low. If you need a high ceiling option at quarterback, you might look elsewhere.
