  Lions | Eric Ebron expecting big things    Fri Jun 23, 12:09 AM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he believes the addition of TE Darren Fells will allow him to play to his strengths. 'I think it's going to play a significant role for me to allow me to do the things that I'm best at,' Ebron said.

Footballguys view: Ebron will be the primary receiving threat for the Lions at the tight end position. Fuller is a blocker and won't contribute much as a receiver. In the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft, the Lions selected another big-bodied tight end in Mike Roberts. In college at Toledo he was a noted touchdown hog, but rookie tight ends usually struggle their first season or two. Ebron should get over 100 targets this year and has the upside to be a top-10 fantasy tight end in 2017. He's going off the board at TE14 (12.08) right now in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford long-term deal coming?    Tue Jun 20, 12:28 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has one year left on the extension he signed in 2013, and Lions general manager Bob Quinn told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio over the weekend he's "confident" a deal will get done.

Footballguys view: Stafford is entering the final year of his contract, and the Lions should work diligently to get this deal done. He's in line to be one of the highest paid players at his position. Earlier reports have speculated the Lions are waiting for the Raiders to get Derek Carr a new deal before rewarding Stafford.

  Lions | Marvin Jones improving this offseason    Mon Jun 19, 05:22 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones focused on strengthening his lower body to improve his explosiveness this offseason. He worked out with former NFL WR Randy Moss to help him in that endeavor and to improve his yards after the catch. Head coach Jim Caldwell praised Jones for the offseason he has put together so far. 'This guy is right there on the verge of maintaining that kind of explosive start that he had last year,' Caldwell said. 'He's really, really had a real good spring.'

Footballguys view: Jones can only benefit from working out with Moss. Last year, Jones started off his time with the Lions at an incredible rate and he led the NFL with 482 receiving yards after four weeks. It all fell apart after that due to nagging injuries and inconsistencies as Jones managed just 448 yards the rest of the season. Jones has a current ADP of WR48 (10.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay signs    Mon Jun 19, 11:01 AM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay, a third-round pick, signed his rookie four-year deal Monday, June 19.

Footballguys view: There have been a lot of positive reports about Golladay coming out of Lions camp. The 2017 third-round pick out of Northern Illinois can get down the field in a flash. He's got the ball skills to make difficult catches seem routine and could thrive in the red zone because of his 'my ball' mentality. Golladay is a work in progress as a route-runner, but the rookie could win the no3 WR job in Detroit behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.

  Lions | No timetable for Taylor Decker    Sun Jun 18, 07:20 PM

Detroit Lions OT Taylor Decker (shoulder) is recovering from his shoulder surgery, but general manager Bob Quinn said he does not want to put a timetable on Decker's return.

Footballguys view: The original timetable was thought to be 4-6 months. This report could perhaps mean it would be longer for the second-year tackle. The Lions have strengthened their offensive line this offseason through free agency, but losing their starting left tackle is going to sting. New additions Greg Robinson and Cyrus Kouandjio will compete for that spot while Decker is out.

  Lions | Detroit working on Matthew Stafford deal    Sun Jun 18, 07:19 PM

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn said the team is working on an extension for QB Matthew Stafford and hopes to have news on the situation later in the summer.

Footballguys view: Stafford is set to hit the open market in 2018, but we don't see that happening. Earlier reports have indicated that Stafford is in no hurry, and his camp may wait until Derek Carr (Raiders) gets his new deal before signing. When all is said and done, expect Stafford to be one of the highest paid players at his position.

  Lions | Jake Rudock heavy favorite for No. 2 QB job    Sun Jun 18, 04:53 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock is the heavy favorite to win the backup quarterback job entering training camp because he has more knowledge and experience in offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's offensive scheme than QB Brad Kaaya.

Footballguys view: Rudock is a savvy quarterback, and he's got a leg up over Kaaya because of his experience. Kaaya is a good pocket passer but somewhat robotic when he has to go off script.

  Lions | Detroit's left tackle job up for grabs    Sun Jun 18, 10:17 AM

Detroit Lions OTs Greg Robinson and Cyrus Kouandjio will compete for the left tackle job during training camp, although neither player participated in the team's recent minicamp, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Both of them are recent additions as the Lions got the prognosis on Taylor Decker's shoulder injury (4-6 months). Robinson was added via trade, and the former no2 overall pick (2014) is looking for a fresh start after disappointing with the Rams. Kouandjio had ...shall we say... a bizarre end to his career with the Bills and he's recovering from hip surgery. The left tackle position in Detroit is going to be a concern, but at least the right side has plenty of strength with new additions RG T.J. Lang and RT Ricky Wagner.

  Lions | Joe Dahl likely to return to guard    Sun Jun 18, 10:09 AM

Detroit Lions OL Joe Dahl appears likely to move back to guard, despite receiving first-team reps at left tackle during minicamp.

Footballguys view: The Lions seem content to let Greg Robinson and Cyrus Kouandjio compete for the left tackle position with Taylor Decker out 4-6 months with a shoulder injury. Dahl is expected to compete with OGs Graham Glasgow and Laken Tomlinson opposite OG T.J. Lang in training camp.

  Lions | Zach Zenner's versatility praised    Sat Jun 17, 09:33 PM

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner is still progressing and improving, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. 'He can run the ball,' Caldwell said. 'He can pass protect. He can catch the ball out of the backfield.'

Footballguys view: Zenner is a jack of all trades and that versatility will get him on the field in certain situations. The Lions have a cluttered backfield, so Zenner's fantasy value is limited. Ameer Abdullah should be the lead back provided he can stay healthy. Theo Riddick should continue as the team's primary pass-catching back. That leaves little for Zenner outside of perhaps some short-yardage or goal-line work.

  Lions | Cyrus Kouandjio signed by Lions    Thu Jun 15, 09:43 AM

Free-agent OT Cyrus Kouandjio (Bills) signed an undisclosed deal with the Detroit Lions Thursday, June 15.

Footballguys view: Another potential replacement for Taylor Decker, who is out for between four and six months after shoulder surgery. The team also traded for former second overall pick Greg Robinson. Neither Kouandjio nor Robinson are sure things at tackle, but the Lions are low on alternatives.

  Lions | Greg Robinson sent to Detroit    Thu Jun 15, 09:23 AM

Los Angeles Rams OT Greg Robinson was acquired by the Detroit Lions Thursday, June 15, for a sixth-round pick in 2018, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A former second overall pick, Robinson never produced the way the Rams had hoped he would. His best fit - which some analysts thought was the case from the beginning - might be at guard, but with Taylor Decker coming back from recent shoulder surgery, the Lions may have to throw him in at tackle. We're a bit concerned by that, but somewhat hopeful that a new home will help Robinson finally find his mojo.

  Lions | Jared Abbrederis misses practice    Wed Jun 14, 03:19 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 14, because of undisclosed reasons.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis has had a problem staying healthy, especially last year when he was limited to five games for the Packers. He is competing for the no4 WR job with the Lions behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and rookie Kenny Golladay.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah the best back in Detroit    Sun Jun 11, 09:09 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah makes the offense noticeably better and is 'the best two-way back' on the roster, in the opinion of Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.

Footballguys view: That's true and all, but it's not like the Lions have a stacked backfield. The Lions will use a RBBC featuring Abdullah as the lead back. Theo Riddick will still be their main pass-catching back with Zach Zenner working in as a short-yardage and/or red-zone back. Abdullah has a current ADP of RB26 (6.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Receiver competition brewing in Detroit    Sun Jun 11, 09:05 PM

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones and WR Jace Billingsley currently have a leg up in the battle for the remaining receiver spots behind WR Marvin Jones, WR Golden Tate and WR Kenny Golladay, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.

Footballguys view: T.J. Jones has spent time as the slot receiver for the first-team offense during OTAs, and he's got the edge in the competition for the no4 wide receiver. As it currently stands, Jones has no fantasy value for re-draft leagues. However, we'll be watching him in the preseason for the dynasty leagues we play in.

  Lions | Brad Kaaya still picking up the offense    Sun Jun 11, 09:01 PM

Detroit Lions QB Brad Kaaya is still picking up the offense and wasn't making reads quickly during OTAs, in the opinion of DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman.

Footballguys view: Kaaya was an interesting player early in his college career at Miami. He failed to develop fully on that natural talent his displayed during the first two years with the Hurricanes. The Lions took a chance on him in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL draft, and his skill set compares favorably to Cody Kessler on a bad day. He'll compete with Jake Rudock for the primary backup job to Matthew Stafford...and it's likely that Rudock has a head start Kaaya can't catch as a rookie.

  Lions | A'Shawn Robinson working on pass rush    Sat Jun 10, 09:28 AM

Detroit Lions DT A'Shawn Robinson has spent the offseason working on his pass-rushing technique, after he had just two sacks and five quarterback hurries during his rookie season last year.

Footballguys view: He became a starter late in 2016 and played 59 percent of the team's defensive snaps over the final three games but defensive coordinator Teryl Austin hopes that Robinson can improve enough to be used as a three-down player.

  Lions | Taylor Decker will miss some time     Fri Jun 9, 02:47 PM

Detroit Lions OT Taylor Decker (shoulder) suffered a torn labrum and will be sidelined for four to six months.

Footballguys view: He may begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. That would automatically force Decker to miss the first six weeks of the regular season. After that, the Lions would have three weeks to evaluate the big left tackle to determine whether or not they should activate him or put him on Injured Reserve. It's a blow to the team, especially after they reshaped the right side of their offensive line this year in free agency. Joe Dahl should start in Decker's absence.

  Lions | T.J. Jones playing multiple spots    Thu Jun 8, 09:57 PM

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones has spent time as the slot receiver for the first-team offense during OTAs, and he has also been used on the punt team as a returner, gunner and jammer.

Footballguys view: The Lions have held onto Jones for a reason. A fourth-round pick in 2014, Jones has fought through injuries and inconsistency to work his way onto the active roster. This year, Jones could catch a handful of passes as a reserve target for QB Matthew Stafford.

  Lions | Taylor Decker could miss significant time     Tue Jun 6, 07:58 PM

Detroit Lions OT Taylor Decker (shoulder) is in danger of missing the start of the regular season after recently having surgery to correct a shoulder injury he suffered during organized team activities.

Footballguys view: You never really know with the Lions as they're not entirely open when it comes to injuries (see Ameer Abdullah, 2016 etc). Decker will be out until at least training camp. Head coach Jim Caldwell does expect Decker to play at some point this season, however.

Detroit Lions OT Rick Wagner will remain at right tackle after OT Taylor Decker's (shoulder) injury. OT Joe Dahl, OT Corey Robinson and OT Cornelius Lucas are options at left tackle.

Footballguys view: The team doesn't believe Decker is out for the year, but they're not saying he'll be ready for Week 1. We'll see how this shakes out in training camp, but Wagner is staying on the right side for now.

  Lions | Taylor Decker has surgery    Tue Jun 6, 10:21 AM

Detroit Lions OT Taylor Decker (shoulder) underwent shoulder surgery for an injury he suffered in practice last week.

Footballguys view: Decker hurt his should in practice and then was under the knife in a matter of days. Head coach Jim Caldwell said he doesn't think it will be a season-ending injury but he's also known to give as little information as possible -- and he wouldn't commit to Decker being ready for Week 1 of the regular season. The Lions re-worked the right side of the offensive line in free agency (T.J. Lang, Ricky Wagner) and can't afford to lose Decker on the left side.

  Lions | Jared Abbrederis praised for route running    Sat Jun 3, 08:51 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jared Abbrederis has caught the eye of head coach Jim Caldwell for his ability to run routes. "Really good route runner, very good in terms of his ability to find open areas," Caldwell said. "You complement all those things he can do from an offensive standpoint with his ability to play special teams. He's really doing well, so he's just got to keep progressing."

Footballguys view: Abbrederis was predicted by some beat writers to be a breakout player with the Packers last year. Instead, Abbrederis was slowed by injury and limited to one catch for eight yards and appeared in only five games. The Packers let him go late last year (October 2016) with an injury settlement. Abbrederis is competing for the no4 WR job with the Lions behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and rookie Kenny Golladay.

  Lions | Detroit could consider Jeremy Maclin    Sat Jun 3, 02:34 PM

Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) could be an intriguing option for the Detroit Lions if the price is reasonable, in the opinion of MLive.com's Nate Atkins.

Footballguys view: There's not much (if any) proven talent behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones at the WR position in Detroit. Rookie Kenny Golladay (third-round pick out of Northern Illinois) has some skill but like all young players he may take some time to get used to the pro game. Maclin may not be as fast as he used to be, but he'd bring a veteran savvy to the reserve WR corps and compete as the no3 wideout for the Lions.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah had Lisfranc tear    Thu Jun 1, 01:58 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) tore his Lisfranc ligament in Week 2 last season. It was well documented that Abdullah injured his foot, but the Lisfranc injury, specifically, had not been disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Lions didn't address running back (Matt Asiata signing last week is no fix), so they had to feel good about Abdullah's prospects coming back from a Lis Franc anyway. Abdullah will split time with Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick, which will limit his upside. Owners are taking him as RB26 in 12-team PPR leagues, usually in the mid-sixth round.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was running and working out on the sidelines during practice Wednesday, May 31, and had the ball in his left hand because his right hand is heavily wrapped.

Footballguys view: The Lions will not rush Riddick back as he's a known commodity with a clear-cut role. Riddick will continue to be featured as the team's pass-catching running back. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues should look at him as a RB3/flex option.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay impressive at workouts    Wed May 31, 03:18 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay has shown good hands and the ability to get open during offseason workouts, in the opinion of DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman.

Footballguys view: At 6'4" 218 pounds, Golladay is an impressive size/speed prospect to track in dynasty leagues. He can fly down the field and is known to make acrobatic catches near the sideline. Golladay can take the top off the defense or be a quality option in the red zone.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah remains the starter    Wed May 31, 10:34 AM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah remains the team's starting running back, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: That fits with the offseason clues the Lions have left for us. Abdullah is entering this year as the lead back, and the team didn't draft a replacement for him in the 2017 NFL draft. They also didn't tear up free agency looking for help at the position, although they did add Matt Asiata last week. Abdullah is a smaller back, so his workload will be managed with Zach Zenner getting some short-yardage work and Theo Riddick being featured on passing downs. Right now, Abdullah is getting drafted at RB26 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Alex Carter moved to safety    Wed May 31, 10:34 AM

Detroit Lions CB Alex Carter has been moved to safety on a permanent basis, according to head coach Jim Caldwell, as the team likes Carter's size there.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Stanford in 2015, Carter hasn't been able to showcase his talent. As a rookie, Carter's season was eliminated due to an ankle injury. In 2016, Carter was only active for one game and was on the team's practice squad for the rest of the year. A physical player in college, Carter's move to safety is not unexpected as he's best keeping the play in front of him.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is unlikely to do much at OTAs as the team has a history of bringing back established players from injury slowly, per ESPN's Michael Rothstein.

Footballguys view: The Lions know what he can do and how to effectively use Riddick as their primary pass-catching back. He should be worked back in during training camp. Fantasy owners are drafted Riddick at RB31 (7.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Marvin Jones more comfortable    Sat May 27, 09:51 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones said he is a lot more comfortable with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's system entering this season after struggling to master the offense last year.

Footballguys view: Jones began last season on a tear, going over 100 yards receiving in two of the first three games. After his 205-yard game, Jones didn't eclipse triple digits as a receiver and some weeks he was almost invisible in the box score. If he's more comfortable this year, perhaps Jones can be more consistent.

'He's thrown the ball better,' Caldwell said. 'Not to say that he was throwing it poorly before, but he's better.'

Footballguys view: Rudock is competing with rookie Brad Kaaya to be the primary backup behind Matthew Stafford in 2017. A sixth-round pick out of Michigan in 2016, Rudock lacks a strong arm but he makes up for it with good rhythm as a passer. He can throw with touch and stays confident with the blitz around him. We're watching his progress in dynasty leagues.

Footballguys view: Asiata joins a Lions backfield to give them another power option behind Zach Zenner. Ameer Abdullah is likely the lead back, but he's not built to be a grinder in the NFL. That's where Zenner comes in...and oh yeah, Theo Riddick will still be a fine pass-catching option for the Lions in 2017. Asiata is no lock for the final roster.

  Lions | Ameer Abdulla staying focused    Mon May 22, 02:19 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) said he's attacking this offseason with a more focused mindset and working as hard as he can to be the best player he can be. The third-year running back also hopes to leave his injury woes behind him. He's focused on the little things and the work he has to do to maintain his body for the NFL after suffering a season-ending foot injury in Week 2 last season.

Footballguys view: Abdullah needs to stay healthy more than stay focused, but we get the drift of this article. He's a dynamic runner and very dangerous in the open field, but we've always felt Abdullah was better suited as a part-time running back. He sits atop the depth chart but will likely split time with Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner at the position.
