  Lions | Golden Tate expected to miss a few weeks    Mon Oct 16, 01:14 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI soon, but the expectation is he will miss 'some time,' according to a source.

Footballguys view: With Tate down, the Lions will turn to Marvin Jones to do more. They'll need rookie Kenny Golladay to get over his hamstring injury and do more. Also, T.J. Jones could be a 'what the heck' flex for fantasy owners while Tate is out.

  Lions | Golden Tate posts 96 yards, TD    Sun Oct 15, 07:54 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: We might not find out much about his shoulder injury during the bye. He was underachieving for fantasy and actually had his score when the game wasn't out of hand yet, so not all of his good game happened because of garbage time.

Golden Tate player page


  Lions | Marvin Jones returns to end zone    Sun Oct 15, 07:53 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones racked up six receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Jones had his best game of the year in this garbage time inflated game for the Lions pass offense. He could get more targets if Golden Tate's shoulder injury keeps him out after the team's bye this week.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford tosses three TDs    Sun Oct 15, 07:52 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 25 of his 52 pass attempts for 312 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints and he lost a pair of fumbles.

Footballguys view: Stafford only had a good fantasy day because the Lions fell behind by a huge margin and the Saints defense let up for a good part of the second half. The Lions offense is still struggling to have consistent success entering their bye.

  Lions | Big game on tap for Matthew Stafford?     Sat Oct 14, 12:18 AM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, and in his last two meetings with the Saints, he has completed 52 of his 67 passes for 595 yards and five touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Stafford is a bit banged up right now, but we could see him putting up QB1 numbers for fantasy owners in Week 6.

  Lions | Golden Tate has torched the Saints    Sat Oct 14, 12:06 AM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, and he has averaged eight catches for 115 yards and a touchdown in his last three meetings with the Saints.

Footballguys view: It's been two consecutive weeks that the Saints CBs have not allowed a touchdown to opposing WRs. That should change this week with Tate and Marvin Jones on the attack. Tate has a great matchup he can exploit against slot cornerback PJ Williams and/or safety Kenny Vaccaro. We like Tate as a WR2 in Week 6.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford expected to play    Fri Oct 13, 07:47 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) is expected to play in the team's Week 6 game even though he is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: Stafford is banged up but he'll be playing against the Saints in Week 6 in a good matchup. Throwing for 300 yards and two touchdowns is a possibility for Stafford and look for targets like RB Theo Riddick and WR Golden Tate to have strong performances at the Superdome on Sunday.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Stafford will play, but he won't be as mobile against a Saints defense that was playing much better heading into their bye last week. It could be a rough week for Stafford in the Superdome.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay sitting out    Fri Oct 13, 11:41 AM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) isn't participating in practice Friday, Oct. 13.

Footballguys view: Golladay provided a vertical element and red zone presence before his injury. TJ Jones will get more snaps and Marvin Jones might get more red zone looks with Golladay unlikely to return this week against the Saints.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford practices in full    Thu Oct 12, 05:43 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: He's banged up and hasn't topped 300 yards this season. If that's ever going to change, it will probably be this week against New Orleans. But the fact that he is banged up cools our jets a bit and we would feel better starting him as a QB2 with some upside due to matchup.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay a limited participant    Thu Oct 12, 05:33 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Golladay is very hit or miss and has been out a few weeks. We'd like to see what he can do when he is healthy, but as it stands he's not worth a roster spot, much less a start.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay limited Wednesday    Wed Oct 11, 04:35 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: Golladay hasn't been on the field since the Lions Week 3 game against the Falcons. He certainly has disappointed fantasy owners after his big Week 1 game (four catches, 69 yards, two touchdowns) and this injury has lingered for quite some time. If he plays against the Saints, we'd only call him a desperation 'what the heck' flex in Week 6.

  Lions | Full practice for Matthew Stafford    Wed Oct 11, 04:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) put in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: Stafford is dealing with a couple of injuries (ankle, quadriceps) and was seen with a bit of a limp. Even with all that, he's likely to play against the Saints on Sunday.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle, hamstring) was able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 11, albeit with a wrap on his leg and a bit of a limp, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.

Footballguys view: Stafford is a little banged up, but he's got a good matchup against the Saints on Sunday and is expected to play. From a fantasy lens, Stafford still has QB1 potential. Monitor his status as the week of practice continues.

  Lions | Caraun Reid signs with Detroit    Wed Oct 11, 11:24 AM

Free-agent DT Caraun Reid (Chargers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Detroit Lions Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick (2014) for Detroit, Reid is back to the Motor City. The Lions needed to add depth to the defensive line with Haloti Ngata placed on Injured Reserve. Reid's season was ended by a torn ACL in 2016, but if healthy he could provide them with run-stuffing help in a rotation up front.

  Lions | Haloti Ngata to IR    Wed Oct 11, 09:13 AM

Detroit Lions DT Haloti Ngata (elbow) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: Ngata isn't the same player he used to be, but this injury hurts the Lions defensive front. He'll miss at least eight weeks and might not be in line for the 'designated to return' tag if this injury doesn't heal properly.

  Lions | Eric Ebron meets with Matthew Stafford    Tue Oct 10, 06:25 PM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron met with QB Matthew Stafford Monday, Oct. 9, in an effort to correct the slump he's been in this season. Ebron said he is 'in the dumps' mentally and needs to get his act together. Through five games this year, Ebron has managed just 12 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Ebron hasn't just been bad this season--at times he's been disastrous, including a critical drop against the Panthers last week. Until we see that he has Stafford's trust back and doesn't choke when he does, we're avoiding him.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford has chance to play    Mon Oct 9, 03:52 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle, quadriceps) is dealing with ankle and quadriceps injuries, but the Lions are optimistic that he will play in Week 6, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are hopeful Stafford can play on Sunday against the Saints. He battled through these injuries against the Panthers in Week 5 and posted decent fantasy numbers. We expect Stafford to be limited early in the week of practice but he might be able to practice fully on Friday. Stay tuned.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle, quadriceps) finished the Week 5 game with heavy tape on his ankle and quadriceps.

Footballguys view: Stafford is banged up but he was able to battle through these injuries against the Panthers on Sunday. We're expecting him to be limited in practice during the week, but he should be able to play against the Saints in Week 6.

  Lions | Eric Ebron limited to one grab    Sun Oct 8, 06:27 PM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted just one catch for six yards on four targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Ebron dropped a possible touchdown and gave way to Darren Fells in the red zone later in the game. He's not worth carrying in most leagues at this point.

  Lions | Four grabs for Golden Tate    Sun Oct 8, 06:25 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate managed five catches for 48 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Tate has been coming in under expectations most weeks in a year that he was expected to pack a lot of PPR punch. He should be fine next week at New Orleans, but Tate is more WR3 than WR2 right now.
