  Lions | Joique Bell leads RBs in touches    Sun Sep 14, 10:26 PM

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell had team-highs with 10 carries and 36 yards in the Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Bell added six catches, and the coaches stood behind him despite another fumble. He is the most valuable Lions back to own going into the home matchup against Green Bay in Week 3.

  Lions | Reggie Bush sees fewer touches    Sun Sep 14, 10:26 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was able to play in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers, but he had just six runs for 26 yards and two receptions for six yards. It appears the team is trying to spread the reps among its backs and trying to limit the wear and tear on Bush's body at the same time.

Footballguys view: Bush is getting the lesser half of the Lions RBBC. If he doesn't break a big play in any given game, his upside is very limited. The Packers defense has been jekyll and hyde, so Bush is only a flex play at home against them next week.

  Lions | Two rotate at right tackle    Sun Sep 14, 10:25 PM

Detroit Lions OTs Cornelius Lucas and Garrett Reynolds each saw reps at right tackle in the Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: The Lions got a break when Greg Hardy was deactivated, but it didn't translate to a lot of points in a tough road matchup.

  Lions | Nevin Lawson injured    Sun Sep 14, 10:24 PM

Detroit Lions CB Nevin Lawson (foot) was carted off in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers after suffering a dislocated ankle. 'He dislocated his foot, so he is actually in surgery as we speak,' head coach Jim Caldwell said Sunday, Sept. 14. 'We are praying for the young man, but he is in good hands right now. They are operating on him and we'll see what the prognosis is after.'

  Lions | Nate Freese misses two kicks    Sun Sep 14, 10:22 PM

Detroit Lions PK Nate Freese misfired on a pair of field goal attempts in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers. He was able to tack on one extra point. Head coach Jim Caldwell said Sunday, Sept. 14, that he 'won't make any rash decisions' on whether to keep Freese as the kicker after the misses.

Footballguys view: If you have Freese as your kicker, there's no need to chance it. Swap him out for a kicker that is doing better and not on shaky ground.

  Lions | Jeremy Ross wants expanded role     Sat Sep 13, 10:33 AM

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Ross wants to be known for more than just returning kicks. "There's been a lot of return people, guys who don't really do well at receiver or are just known for returns," Ross said. "I don't want to just be that guy. I don't want to be a one-dimensional guy, I want to be a multidimensional guy. I want to have success at return, but then also wideout, too."

Footballguys view: Behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate there's very little to prevent him from at least getting a shot. Ryan Broyles was inactive Week 1 and is often hurt, while Corey Fuller is a developing second-year player. That said, the number 3 receiver in Detroit is almost irrelevant. If he's not going with Johnson/Tate, Stafford looks for Reggie Bush or a tight end. We'll see if that changes, but we are skeptical.

  Lions | Corey Hilliard placed on IR    Thu Sep 11, 08:25 PM

Detroit Lions OT Corey Hilliard (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: The Lions could down to a third-string right tackle against the ferocious Panthers front seven if LaAdrian Waddle can't go on Sunday, which is bad news for their offense.


  Lions | Reggie Bush practices in full    Thu Sep 11, 05:43 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: No ice on the knee? Fantasy owners caught their breath yesterday with reports that Bush had an iced up knee and was hobbling a bit in the locker room after practice. He's in a 50/50 RBBC with Joique Bell. That limits his fantasy value to being a flex play.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was held out of portions of practice Wednesday, Sept. 10. Bush was seen with an ice pack on his left knee before practice.

Footballguys view: Just keep an eye on this here. He's in a full-blown RBBC with Joique Bell at this time, and that makes Bush a flex play for fantasy owners.

  Lions | Reggie Bush had ice on knee    Wed Sep 10, 12:52 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was seen hobbling through the locker room with a bag of ice on his knee.

Footballguys view: Uh-oh. Fantasy owners need to monitor this situation closely. If healthy, he's in a full-blown RBBC with Joique Bell. We can only recommend Bush as a flex play, and fantasy owners need to hope for a big play in order for him to outperform those expectations.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford shows improved footwork    Tue Sep 9, 12:41 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford showed improved footwork in his ability to climb the pocket when he was pressured in Week 1 against the New York Giants Monday, Sept. 8, his first start in the Jim Caldwell era. Sloppy footwork has been part of Stafford's problems in the past. He also seemed to make a conscious effort not to force passes to receivers that weren't open. Stafford finished the victory going 22-for-32 for 346 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a rushing touchdown.

Footballguys view: Stafford gets a fresh start with new OC Joe Lombardi. His mechanics were not lazy in Week 1. This is a good sign for his prospects this season. Stafford should finish the season as a top-5 fantasy quarterback.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson has already gone over 100 yards receiving in the Week 1 game against the New York Giants, his 40th career game over the century mark. He is the third fastest in NFL history to 40 career 100-yard games (107 games).

Footballguys view: Of course he is. The talk of anyone else being the No.1 fantasy receiver was always folly. It's Megatron, and it's not even close. He's on a tier all by himself.
