  Lions | Dwayne Washington injury not serious    Tue Dec 6, 04:55 PM

Detroit Lions RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) avoided a serious injury in Week 13 and could play this week, in the opinion of Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Footballguys view: Washington could play in Week 14, but the team added Joique Bell off the street on Tuesday. That's a sign that Washington may not be ready.

  Lions | Joique Bell back with Lions    Tue Dec 6, 03:00 PM

Free-agent RB Joique Bell (Bears) signed an undisclosed contract with the Detroit Lions Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Bell just gives the Lions some veteran depth behind Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner. This signing is also an indication that Dwayne Washington's ankle injury could keep him out of Week 14.

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight catches and 145 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown scamper, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Tate's long touchdown came on a busted coverage, but he was productive all afternoon. The loss of Marvin Jones helped Tate's target share, and he should be at worst a good WR2/WR3 play against Chicago at home next week.

  Lions | Marvin Jones unlikely to play    Sun Dec 4, 10:37 AM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) is considered a long shot to play in Week 13's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Jones will be a decoy even if he does play. Look for Theo Riddick, Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin, and Eric Ebron to tick up in targets with Jones likely out.

  Lions | Tahir Whitehead will not play    Sat Dec 3, 05:17 PM

Detroit Lions LB Tahir Whitehead (knee) has been ruled out for the team's Week 13 game.

  Lions | Detroit makes roster moves    Sat Dec 3, 04:33 PM

Detroit Lions DE Armonty Bryant was activated from the suspended list Saturday Dec.3. Practice squad WR T.J. Jones was promoted to the active roster. The team also released CB Johnthan Banks and RB Justin Forsett.

Footballguys view: Forsett has been a healthy scratch for quite some time now. He couldn't make a dent in Detroit with one of the most RB-poor teams in the NFL. We can't imagine any team thinking he's a late-season answer.

  Lions | Marvin Jones' status in question    Fri Dec 2, 07:43 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Jones hasn't looked 100% for a while and is only a boom/bust WR3/Flex at best with the potential for an airshow in the Superdome this week.

  Lions | Questionable tag for Theo Riddick    Fri Dec 2, 07:26 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Footballguys view: Riddick is on track to play and he has a higher ceiling this week on the Superdome fast track in a potential shootout with the Saints. Riddick should be considered a PPR RB2 and nonPPR flex this week.

  Lions | Marvin Jones limited    Thu Dec 1, 05:20 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners don't trust Jones...and for good reason. He's done little since his 200-yard game in Week 3. Jones is only a desperation 'what the heck' flex play in Week 13.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah still in walking boot    Mon Nov 28, 09:39 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) was wearing a full walking boot on his left foot during a Thanksgiving event last week at Ford Field.

Footballguys view: It's a bit of bad news, but it doesn't mean that Abdullah is not going to be the Lions 'designated to return' player. Watch him going forward to see if he's set to return at any point this season.

  Lions | Logan Thomas to Detroit's practice squad    Mon Nov 28, 01:08 PM

Free-agent QB Logan Thomas (Giants) was signed to the Detroit Lions practice squad Monday, Nov. 28, as a tight end.

Footballguys view: Thomas is big and athletic, but like Terrelle Pryor he wasn't going to make it in the NFL as a quarterback. While not as freakish athletic as Pryor, Thomas does have a big frame and the strength to out-muscle defenders. In the deepest of deep dynasty leagues we're monitoring this position switch.

  Lions | Miles Killebrew's role not expected to change    Sat Nov 26, 12:19 PM

Detroit Lions S Miles Killebrew has thrived recently on third down as a hybrid linebacker/safety near the line of scrimmage, totaling nine tackles despite logging only 21 snaps over the last two weeks, Still, there are no plans to expand his role, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein.

  Lions | Theo Riddick a disappointment     Thu Nov 24, 04:21 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick only managed 58 yards from scrimmage Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: In fairness, he only ran the ball nine times, and had a 5 yards per carry average, so it's not like he struggled and did badly. The Lions only ran the ball 19 times, so it's not as if Riddick was ineffective on the ground.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford turns in decent effort    Thu Nov 24, 04:16 PM

Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford threw for 232 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Nov. 24. He also ran for 30 yards.

Footballguys view: It was a mediocre game for Stafford who was sacked twice, hit another eight times and was under heavy pressure at times. His second half was filled with only one scoring drive and he was bailed out by a Sam Bradford Thanksgiving Interception.

  Lions | Anquan Boldin a pleasant surprise    Thu Nov 24, 04:09 PM

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin caught seven passes for 69 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Nov. 24, against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: With the Vikings more interested in Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, as well as Eric Ebron so Boldin found himself free more often. He's been hit and miss this year, and is definitely on the downside of his career, but it's nice to see a spark here or there.

  Lions | Detroit adds Jake Rudock to roster    Wed Nov 23, 02:02 PM

Detroit Lions practice squad QB Jake Rudock was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: This was likely a move to block a team like the Bears from adding Rudock to their roster. The rookie from Michigan is an intriguing dynasty prospect. He's tough, plays with a ton of moxie and isn't afraid to challenge the edges of a defense.

  Lions | Checkup goes well for Ameer Abdullah    Tue Nov 22, 07:50 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah's (foot) checkup with Dr. Robert Anderson went well Tuesday, Nov. 22, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation if you need RB help. The Lions aren't running the ball well, and Abdullah could give them some boost at the position. If he's able to return, we'd expect them to mix Abdullah into a RBBC with Theo Riddick.

  Lions | Theo Riddick limited    Tue Nov 22, 04:30 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) practiced for the first time Tuesday, Nov. 22, beginning his 21-day clock toward activation off the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: He's back in action, and the Lions have three weeks to decide if he's going to be active. It would be a surprise to see him get the call up for the Thanksgiving game against the Vikings on Thursday.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Nov. 22.
