  Lions | Touchdowns on tap for LeGarrette Blount?    Fri Dec 7, 11:02 PM

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount faces the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14, and the Cardinals have allowed a league-high 15 rushing touchdowns to running backs this season.

Footballguys view: Blount has been running with power and renewed burst over the last two weeks. He's a flex play or emergency RB2 this week.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay ready to play    Fri Dec 7, 07:05 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Golladay's limited status earlier this week raised some eyebrows, but it sounds like he will be ready to go on Sunday. He will see Patrick Peterson often when he's lined up outside, but he should also get a fair amount of snaps from the slot.

  Lions | Week 14 injury report for Detroit    Fri Dec 7, 03:48 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals. LB Trevor Bates (ankle) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Dec. 7, but has also been ruled out. FB Nick Bellore (ankle), WR Bruce Ellington (back), DE Kerry Hyder Jr. (illness), LB Devon Kennard (hip), WR Brandon Powell (calf), TE Michael Roberts (shoulder), CB Darius Slay (ankle) and QB Matthew Stafford (back) were limited in practice Friday and are listed as questionable. DE Ziggy Ansah (neck) and WR Kenny Golladay (quad) returned to a full practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Ellington and Stafford will play, but this is an afternoon start, so if you are counting on them in deep leagues, make sure to have a late/night game hedge on the roster. We should get news on Stafford Sunday morning before the early games kick off.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson unlikely to be shut down    Fri Dec 7, 12:46 PM

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) is likely to miss a third straight game Sunday, Dec. 9, with a knee injury suffered in Week 11, but is unlikely to be shut down for the remainder of the season. 'He's working really hard to try to do everything he can to get himself back out there,' Lions head coach Matt Patricia said.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson likely to miss another game    Fri Dec 7, 12:27 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) remained out of practice Friday, Dec. 7, as he recovers from a knee injury and is expected to be ruled out of Week 14 when the team issues its game designations later Friday.

Footballguys view: Johnson doesn't seem close to a return but it doesn't sound like shut down at some point despite the Lions clearly being out of the running for the playoffs. LeGarrette Blount is a flex option this week against the weak Cardinals run defense.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay, Bruce Ellington limited    Thu Dec 6, 04:20 PM

Detroit Lions WRs Kenny Golladay (quadriceps) and Bruce Ellington (back) remained limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Both look on track to play, but if they don't get a full practice in tomorrow and draw a questionable tag, that could be a problem for lineup setting with an afternoon start at Arizona. We'll be watching this closely.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson not practicing    Thu Dec 6, 01:41 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) remained idle from practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: LeGarrette Blount is likely to get the start again this week. He has some flex appeal in deeper leagues with guaranteed touches against a weak run defense in what should be a close game.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson unable to practice    Wed Dec 5, 06:01 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: It looks like Johnson is going to miss another game. That means LeGarrette Blount will be the lead ball carrier with Theo Riddick mixing in as the pass-catching back.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay does limited practice    Wed Dec 5, 05:59 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (quadriceps) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Golladay is getting a huge workload so the Lions are just getting him a bit of rest. Against the Cardinals in Week 14, Golladay is a WR2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay targeted eight times    Sun Dec 2, 07:49 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay hauled in three receptions for 50 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Levine Toilolo was the leading receiver and tackle Taylor Decker caught the touchdown from Matthew Stafford in this one, making Golladay a disappointment. He'll likely square off with Patrick Peterson next week and be a boom/bust play.

  Lions | LeGarrette Blount racks up 61 yards    Sun Dec 2, 07:44 PM

Detroit Lions RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 61 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Blount has actually run better than expected since taking over for Kerryon Johnson. He'll have a chance to be flex-worthy next week against the Cardinals.

  Lions | Deontez Alexander joins PS    Sat Dec 1, 01:52 AM

The Detroit Lions signed free-agent WR Deontez Alexander to the practice squad on Friday, Nov. 30. DT John Atkins was released in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Alexander, undrafted out of Division III Franklin College, can flat out fly at 6'1" 196 pounds. He plays bigger than his size and does a great job of tracking deep passes. We'll continue to monitor his pro progress but only in the deepest of deep dynasty leagues.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson sits again    Thu Nov 29, 04:01 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

Footballguys view: It looks like Johnson is going to miss another game for the Lions. That makes LeGarrette Blount their lead back with Theo Riddick continuing as their primary pass-catching back. Riddick has low-end RB2 or flex value in PPR leagues while Blount is a RB4 or deep flex this week against the Rams.
