Detroit Lions QB Kellen Moore was 17 of 28 for 172 yards and two touchdowns in a shutout of the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 28. It is not known yet whether he will overtake QB Dan Orlovsky for No. 2 on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Moore has been hanging around with the Lions after his record-setting college career at Boise State. He lacks arm strength, but he has accuracy when throwing withing 12 yards of the line of scrimmage.

  Lions | Golden Tate expects big year    Tue Aug 26, 10:59 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he believes his numbers can go up this year despite moving from the top option in Seattle to the No. 2 option in Detroit. 'I think my numbers can be way better in this offense naturally how it's set up,' Tate said. 'I was coming from, you gotta think I was in the toughest division with the 49ers, Rams and Cardinals, defensively, with a run-heavy offense and now I'm going to a pass-happy offense where I'm on the same team as the best player in the league, one of the best players in the league who is going to draw a lot of attention, a lot of double coverage, which is going to leave me with a lot of single coverage with a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks.'

Footballguys view: Tate certainly has a lot of upside compared to the potential his role gave him in Seattle, but it might be a stretch to see him as more than a WR3/Flex. If you believe in Tate, he is coming at a relatively inexpensive 7th-8th round price.

  Lions | Nick Fairley's weight gain responsible for demotion    Wed Aug 13, 05:58 PM

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley has reportedly added 10 pounds to his frame since the start of training camp, which has led to his demotion in favor of DT C.J. Mosley. The Lions declined to pick up Fairley's 2015 option earlier this year as a way to motivate him to show up this offseason in better shape. Mosley has looked exceptional at times with the first-team, and he rededicated himself to eating cleaner and sleeping longer in the offseason.

Footballguys view: If it's any consolation prize, years ago with the Jacksonville Jaguars Terrance Knighton was replaced by Mosley. Knighton turned his career around with a fresh start in Denver with the Broncos. Perhaps Fairley can have a similar career resurgence when he's with another team next season. The Lions did not pick up his fifth-year option, and Fairley will be allowed to explore his options in free agency.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson receives protective splint    Wed Aug 13, 05:18 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (finger) has a fabricated splint to wear on his previously injured finger for protective purposes only. Johnson had surgery on the finger after last season, but it's unclear how often he plans to wear the splint. Johnson hasn't shown any ill efffects from his finger or knee in training camp, where he has consistently beaten the team's cornerbacks in practice.

Footballguys view: Of course Megatron is beating cornerbacks in practice. There are very few (if any) cornerbacks in the league that can slow him down. He's the best receiver in the game today, and he's still on a different level from guys like Demaryius Thomas, Dez Bryant or A.J. Green.
