  Lions | Taylor Decker works exclusively on left    Sun Jul 24, 01:51 AM

Detroit Lions OT Taylor Decker worked exclusively at left tackle in spring practices, pushing OT Riley Reiff to the right side. The team will get a better sense of what Decker can do when the team is in pads and he is working against DE Ziggy Ansah at full speed in training camp.

  Lions | Is Jake Rudock future in Detroit?    Sun Jul 24, 01:50 AM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock was drafted in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and he might be the future backup to QB Matthew Stafford with veteran QB Dan Orlovsky only signed through 2016. If Rudock sees second-team reps in training camp and the preseason, it might signal the team would prefer to keep Rudock and cut Orlovsky.

  Lions | Last year for Dan Orlovsky?    Sun Jul 24, 01:49 AM

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky remains the backup seeing second-team reps in the spring, but he is only signed through 2016 and does not have a future in Detroit. The team drafted QB Jake Rudock in the sixth round and he looked competent in minicamp.

  Lions | Cole Wick could start over Eric Ebron?    Sat Jul 23, 06:41 PM

Detroit Lions TE Cole Wick looked 'spectacular' in offseason practices and could be in line to push TE Eric Ebron for a starting job if he can carry over that momentum into training camp, according to Detroit Free Press reporter Carlos Monarrez.

Footballguys view: Ebron has natural athleticism but has never played up to his potential. There is no question that 2016 is a make-or-break year.

  Lions | Marvin Jones to be under microscope    Wed Jul 20, 02:48 AM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones will be under the microscope during training camp and the preseason as the team sees how fluid he looks in a system that could reward his skill set.

Footballguys view: The Lions need all the help they can get at the WR position after Calvin Johnson retired, and that's why they went out and added Jones. He's a smooth athlete with the ability to get on top of a defense in a hurry. Golden Tate is the team's primary WR for 2016, but we think Jones could perform like a WR3 for fantasy owners.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah continues to recover    Wed Jul 20, 02:47 AM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery to repair his labrum, but the team expects him to be ready for training camp. He has ascended to the No. 1 spot on the team's depth chart and will be tasked with a significant amount of pass protection, which isn't ideal given his smallish frame.

Footballguys view: Abdullah is the lead back for the Lions, but they have an interesting backfield and the way the touches are split will impact all within. Theo Riddick is a fantastic receiver, and they should use him as the pass-catching back. Either Stevan Ridley or Zach Zenner is going to be the power back, and goal-line touches could go to one of these two. Abdullah is electrifying but his size limitations means he'll be splitting time in order to stay fresh. We see him as a high-end RB3 for fantasy owners.

  Lions | Offensive line meshing in Motown    Wed Jul 20, 02:46 AM

The Detroit Lions have three first-round picks in OT Taylor Decker, OT Riley Reiff and OG Laken Tomlinson along their offensive line, and third-round picks with C Travis Swanson and OG Larry Warford starting, and OL Graham Glasgow waiting in the wings with free-agent addition OL Geoff Schwartz also in the mix.

  Lions | Arian Foster to work out for Detroit    Sun Jul 17, 09:46 PM

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) is scheduled to work out for the Detroit Lions later this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Lions have an interesting situation developing at RB, and adding Foster to the mix would only further complicate things. Ameer Abdullah is set to be the starter, but he has to prove that he can handle a large workload and that he's more than just a change-of-pace back. Theo Riddick is a great receiving back, and he's certainly going to have a sizable role in the offense. If added, Foster would compete with guys like Stevan Ridley and Zach Zenner to be the team's power back. We just don't see Detroit as a good fit for the veteran.

  Lions | Three Detroit backs competing for spots    Sun Jul 17, 03:07 PM

Detroit Lions RBs Zach Zenner, George Winn and Dwayne Washington will likely be competing with each other for two final roster spots.

Footballguys view: Zenner and Washington are the backs to watch here. As a rookie, Zenner showed plenty of power and a bit more burst than some expect. Washington is a former wide receiver who the Lions picked up as a seventh-round pick out of Washington. He's tall (6'2") and a powerful player with the long stride to eat up yards quickly in the open field.

  Lions | Stevan Ridley the favorite for No. 3    Sun Jul 17, 03:01 PM

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 running back position behind RBs Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, according to Tim Twentyman of detroitlions.com. Ridley would provide a change of pace from Abdullah and Riddick, but he'll still have to prove himself after missing most of the offseason with an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: Ridley has to be healthy in order to win the 'big' back job in Detroit. We like second-year pro Zach Zenner or rookie Dwayne Washington better. However, we understand that Ridley is going to get a chance to impress in camp. We'll see if he takes advantage of the opportunity.

  Lions | Nevin Lawson might start    Sat Jul 16, 03:44 PM

  Lions | Tighter snap count for Haloti Ngata?    Sat Jul 16, 12:16 AM

Detroit Lions DT Haloti Ngata hasn't played a full 16-game schedule since 2011, and beat writer Dave Birkett believes the Lions need to monitor Ngata's snap count in 2016 in order to keep him healthy and productive.

Footballguys view: That's a smart move for the Lions. He played 565 snaps for the Lions last year in 14 games. That number should be much lower that that in 2016.

  Lions | Stephen Tulloch officially released    Tue Jul 5, 05:00 PM

Detroit Lions LB Stephen Tulloch was released Tuesday, July 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Tulloch underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery this offseason and did not pass a physical until Tuesday, July 5th, hence the Lions waiting to release him. The Lions would have owed the veteran LB an injury settlement had they released him before the failed physical designation. There should be at least a few teams interested in Tulloch as a run-stuffer before training camp.

  Lions | Several candidates for backup RB role    Tue Jul 5, 07:43 AM

The Detroit Lions will have several candidates in mind to complement RB Ameer Abdullah on the field. In contention for the second running back role are RB Stevan Ridley, RB Zach Zenner, and RB George Winn.

Footballguys view: We like Zenner here. He's the best all-purpose back of this group and can we used effectively as a runner between the tackles or receiver out of the backfield. Zenner is certainly a player to keep on your waiver-wire speed dial. Abdullah is an electric back, but he may not has the durability necessary to be a lead RB in the NFL--even with Theo Riddick still being used as the primary receiving back.

  Lions | Zach Zenner could be power back    Mon Jul 4, 10:10 PM

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner is the early frontrunner to fill the power back role behind RB Ameer Abdullah, according to beat writer Justin Rogers.

Footballguys view: Zenner is a good all-purpose back who is built like a fullback but has more spring in his step than some would think. To be the power back for the Lions in 2016, Zenner only has to beat out veteran Stevan Ridley. From a fantasy perspective, Zenner is a player to keep on your waiver-wire speed dial. If Abdullah needs to be used more as a part-time player, then Zenner's role could be larger than what is currently projected.

  Lions | T.J. Jones could start in the slot    Sat Jul 2, 10:34 PM

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones has seen plenty of practice times as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during the offseason, and he been able to create consistent separation.

Footballguys view: The Lions could use a player like T.J. Jones emerging from the WR position. Superstar Calvin Johnson has retired, and the need at the position led the team to get players like Marvin Jones and Andre Roberts in free agency. T.J. Jones could be the third guy behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones on the depth chart. Fantasy owners need to watch this situation in training camp and the preseason to get an idea of how the targets are going to be distributed.

  Lions | Zach Zenner must prove he is ready    Thu Jun 30, 10:12 PM

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner (rib, lung) is expected to receive plenty of carries this preseason to prove he is physically recovered from last year's injuries and ready to handle live tackling.

Footballguys view: Zenner has to prove that he can be more than a jack of all trades back. He's big and can make his living between the tackles, and Zenner can be a reliable receiver out of the backfield. Does he have the burst/acceleration to make it as a pro back? That's one of the big question marks for Zenner entering year two of his pro career.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford unsung so far    Wed Jun 29, 07:54 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford tallied over 4,200 passing yards and 32 touchdowns last season, throwing nearly 600 passes.

Footballguys view: Last year might have been the best overall season of Stafford's career. He's trending the right way after finishing last year with a strong second half of the season. Stafford had 19 TD passes with only two INTs while completing 71 percent of his passes in the final eight games. We'll see if he can carry that momentum over to this year--oh yeah, without superstar WR Calvin Johnson. Stafford has a current ADP of QB20 (12.08) in 12-team PPR leagues. That's low for a QB who has finished as a top-10 fantasy QB in four of the last five years. Make sure to take advantage of the value presented by the veteran passer.

  Lions | Jim Caldwell talks two-point attempts    Wed Jun 29, 05:14 PM

Detroit Lions head Jim Caldwell was noncommittal on his approach to two-point conversions this upcoming season. Caldwell said going for two points or not will depend on the situation. In Caldwell's two years as head coach, the Lions converted zero of their three two-point attempts last year and one of three tries the year before.

Footballguys view: It's going to be interesting to see how the Lions offense looks without superstar WR Calvin Johnson. Caldwell is a conservative coach by nature, so we're not expecting him to go for a two-point conversion that often.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson staying retired    Sat Jun 25, 08:37 PM

Retired WR Calvin Johnson (Lions) said Saturday, June 25, that he feels good about his decision to retire and is not coming back to the NFL.

Footballguys view: Johnson might change his tune next year if his body feels better and he gets an itch to play football again, but the Lions would have the first shot at him. He might be worth a roster spot in very deep dynasty leagues, but the chances of him playing again are tiny despite his retiring when he still probably had multiple productive years left.

  Lions | Zach Zenner fully recovered    Sat Jun 25, 02:15 PM

Detroit Lions RB Zach Zenner (ribs, lung) has appeared to be fully recovered from his rib and lung injuries last season.

Footballguys view: Zenner should be considered a slight favorite over Stevan Ridley and seventh-round pick Dwayne Washington for the power runner roster spot. If he wins the job, Zenner will have draftable value as the most likely option on traditional goal line running plays and closer when the Lions have a lead.

  Lions | Jeremy Kerley favored for No. 3 WR?    Sat Jun 25, 02:05 PM

Detroit Lions WR Jeremy Kerley is expected to be the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver behind WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and ahead of WR T.J. Jones.

Footballguys view: Kerley still has to beat out recent signing Andre Roberts and the Lions like Jones, so this is far from settled. No matter who wins, this is not going to be a fantasy-friendly role as the 5th target in the pass offense.

  Lions | Cole Wick a roster candidate    Sat Jun 25, 01:54 PM

Detroit Lions TE Cole Wick too advantage of the first-team repetitions he received this offseason. He'll have a good chance to make the 53-man roster if he continues his progress in training camp.

Footballguys view: Brandon Pettigrew is likely to open camp on the PUP list after an ACL tear ended his 2015, so Wick might take his roster spot in the meantime. Wick isn't going to get on our fantasy radar, but he'll be a rugged blocker and complement Eric Ebron well.

  Lions | Andre Caldwell could make roster    Sat Jun 25, 01:40 PM

Detroit Lions WR Andre Caldwell looked comfortable and confident with his new team in early offseason practices. He has a legitimate chance to make the final roster, in the opinion of MLive.com's Mike Mulholland.

Footballguys view: The Lions wide receiver depth chart is wide open after Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Veterans Jeremy Kerley and Andre Roberts are trying to get the slot receiver job along with youngster T.J. Jones. They also recently brought Anquan Boldin in for a visit, so this plot could thicken yet. Caldwell is steady, but lacks upside as a player, although his special teams contributions could give him an edge in a tight battle for one of the open spots at wide receiver.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah to carry the load?    Thu Jun 23, 09:42 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah averaged 4.7 yards per carry in the second of last season, and beat writer Tim Twentyman believes Abdullah will be given the opportunity to be the lead back in 2016.

Footballguys view: "Lead back" for the Lions will still include Theo Riddick catching 70-80 passes out of the backfield and a downhill runner like Zach Zenner or Stevan Ridley handling some of the work between the tackles. Abdullah has upside as a seventh round pick, but it is still capped by the RBBC nature of his backfield.

  Lions | Ameer Abdullah focused on little things    Thu Jun 23, 11:22 AM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder), who is expected to be ready for training camp, is focused on the little things in improving as a player. 'I feel like I showed some flashes last year, but in this league you can't show flashes,' Abdullah said. 'You have to be consistent. That definitely had a lot to do with growing pains. It also had a lot to do with me being immature as a player coming straight from college and not understanding what kind of preparation and mental focus it took for such a long amount of time. I know I have a lot to give to this team and a lot to give to this league. I know I can be a good back, but it starts with those little things I mentioned earlier.'

Footballguys view: Abdullah struggled with fumbles and uneven usage last year. The rookie, like the rest of the offense, improved with the addition of offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, so if Abdullah can get consistent usage, including in the passing game, he could deliver on his seventh round ADP. Theo Riddick should still lead the backfield in receptions, and another back could take the short yardage work and lead the team in rushing touchdowns.

  Lions | Detroit offense tougher for defenses?    Tue Jun 21, 08:50 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford believes his offense will be tougher to defend without former WR Calvin Johnson. Stafford said defenses won't know who the Lions will go to on offense, whereas most of the time in previous years Johnson was their go-to guy.

Footballguys view: Yeah, we'll believe it when we see it. How can you lose a top WR in the game and be BETTER on offense? We'll be skeptical about this, but at least Stafford is showing confidence as he moves forward without Johnson. Golden Tate and Marvin Jones will be the top two wideouts for the Lions in 2016. We see Tate as a low-end WR2 while Jones is more of a low-end WR3 for fantasy owners. The current ADP for Tate is WR22 (4.04) while Jones is at WR41 (9.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Andre Roberts will be moved around    Mon Jun 20, 01:17 PM

Detroit Lions WR Andre Roberts said he will be used as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver during the preseason. He may also receive a chance to compete for the punt returner job.

Footballguys view: The Lions must not have been happy with some of the reserve WRs in place as they signed Roberts recently. He's a speedy veteran who doesn't have much fantasy value--even if he is involved as a return man. We see the Lions peppering WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones as much as possible. There's talk about using TE Eric Ebron more as a receiver and RB Theo Riddick could catch 60 or so passes. That doesn't leave a lot for Roberts (or any other receiver).

  Lions | Two will compete for Lions' No. 3 WR job    Mon Jun 20, 01:15 PM

Detroit Lions WRs Jeremy Kerley (undisclosed) and T.J. Jones are expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp even though Kerley missed some offseason workouts because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: No matter who wins this competition, we're not expecting much from either in fantasy value. A sixth-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, Jones is known for his smooth athleticism after the catch.

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin's (49ers) visit with the Detroit Lions wasn't discussed by head coach Jim Caldwell, who declined to answer all questions related to Boldin Thursday, June 16.

  Lions | Andre Roberts signs with Lions    Mon Jun 13, 10:07 AM

Free-agent WR Andre Roberts (Redskins) signed an undisclosed deal with the Detroit Lions Monday, June 13.

Footballguys view: Roberts has plenty of speed and big-play ability as evidenced by his work as a returner. However, he did almost nothing as a receiver with Washington and only had 11 catches in 2015. Roberts gives the Lions more veteran depth at the position. With Calvin Johnson retired, the team is turning to Golden Tate and Marvin Jones in 2016.

They clearly aren't thrilled with the WR depth already on the team, that's why they signed Andre Roberts and are working out Boldin. We'll see if Boldin can latch on with a team before training camp.

  Lions | Dan Orlovsky's job safe?     Mon Jun 13, 07:55 AM

Detroit Lions QB Dan Orlovsky may have a lock on the No. 2 job despite the presence of QB Jake Rudock on the roster. Lions coach Jim Caldwell and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter were singing Orlovsky's praises after OTAs ended last week.

Footballguys view: Orlovsky or Rudock isn't really a battle that fantasy owners...even dynasty owners...should be watching. We'll be monitoring Rudock as the preseason goes along, but that's only for super-deep dynasty leagues. Rudock has plenty of experience from his days in college at Michigan, but he's merely a technically sound passer who struggles to drive the ball deep, lead receivers properly or throw accurately on passes to the opposite side of the field.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford will still let it fly    Sun Jun 12, 08:58 AM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed a career-best 67.2% of his passes during the 2015 season, but offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter still wants to utilize Stafford's big arm and gunslinger mentality.

Footballguys view: Stafford has to let it fly because the Lions don't have a great rushing attack. It will be interesting to see how his passes are distributed now that Calvin Johnson has retired. The team added Marvin Jones in free agency, and he'll split targets with Golden Tate. They also want TE Eric Ebron to actually do something (other than disappoint) this season. Stafford should be considered a low-end QB2 for fantasy owners. His current ADP is QB20 (12.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick could have a bigger role running the ball in 2016, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.

Footballguys view: We're not down with that. Riddick is a fantastic receiver out of the backfield, but he's not that great as a runner. The team should continue to focus on him as a receiver and let the rushing duties go to guys like Ameer Abdullah and Zach Zenner.

Footballguys view: Fuller is in the mix for a reserve WR spot behind starters Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Behind those two, any WR...even Fuller...can only be considered a WR4/WR5 at best.

As a part-time player in 2015, Biermann had only 2.5 sacks. If added, Biermann would only be counted on for veteran depth and wouldn't see the field that much unless injuries strike ahead of him on the depth chart.

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) will be ready for the start of training camp, according to general manager Bob Quinn.

They'll continue to use Theo Riddick as a receiving back, and second-year pro Zach Zenner could cut into Abdullah's workload. Abdullah has a current ADP of RB31 (7.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

The guy will forever be remembered as the player they drafted over WR Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014, and Ebron has done little to impress during his time in the pros.
