  Lions | Marvin Jones targeted five times    Mon Oct 14, 11:58 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones finished with two catches for just 17 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Jones has been inconsistent this year even though he is still playing at a high level at times. The Vikings matchup isn't a good one next week so right now he's a bench stash while we wait for weaker opponents like the Giants in Week 9.

  Lions | T.J. Hockenson just misses touchdown    Mon Oct 14, 11:54 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson registered four catches for 21 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers. He nearly had a touchdown, but lost control of the ball when he hit the ground.

Footballguys view: Hockenson is still in TE1 consideration and might be a frequent target against the Vikings this week. He has been heavily involved in the red zone even though not much has amounted from it yet.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson gets into the end zone    Mon Oct 14, 11:43 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed 13 times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 14.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford doesn't do much on MNF    Mon Oct 14, 11:33 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 18-of-32 passes for 265 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 14.

Footballguys view: The Lions had lots of chances but settled for five field goals. They'll need to finish more drives with touchdowns to beat Aaron Rodgers, although some might argue the referees were against them on this night. Stafford is a matchup QBBC play heading into a tough draw against the Vikings.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Stafford is good to go for the Monday night game against the Packers. That's a tough draw, so the veteran quarterback is more of a QB2 for Fantasy GMs in Week 6.

  Lions | T.J. Hockenson questionable    Sat Oct 12, 04:49 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs want Hockenson to explode like he did in Week 1 against the Cardinals. There hasn't been much production since his 6-catch, 131-yard (and a touchdown) debut. Hockenson is a TE2 for Fantasy GMs on Monday night against the Packers.

  Lions | Questionable tag for Danny Amendola    Sat Oct 12, 04:44 PM

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: The game is on Monday night, so the veteran receiver has an extra day to heal. The last time he was on the field (Week 3), Amendola had just four catches for 37 yards. Fantasy GMs have better options than the Lions No. 3 receiver.

  Lions | Detroit's Thursday practice report    Thu Oct 10, 05:17 PM

Detroit Lions DT Mike Daniels (foot), DE Da'Shawn Hand (elbow), CB Amani Oruwariye (knee) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10. S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) and CB Darius Slay (hamstring) were limited during practice.

Footballguys view: Slay isn't 100% coming out of the bye, but he is healthier. The Packers probably won't have Davante Adams this week, so Slay should be able to handle his assignment, even if he is playing with one good hamstring right now. Daniels could miss his first "revenge game" against the Packers after they released him this summer.
