  Lions | Eric Ebron settling in    Sat Dec 13, 08:39 PM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has logged 12 of his 22 catches in the last four weeks, and head coach Jim Caldwell said he believes Ebron is starting to settle in at the NFL level. 'I think he's a lot more comfortable with things,' Caldwell said. 'You can see that he doesn't have to think as much about the calls that are being made in the huddle and things of that nature, and that happens.'

Footballguys view: Ebron isn't a viable fantasy option this year, but tight ends almost never make an impact as a rookie. It's good for his dynasty owners that Ebron is starting to build some momentum for 2015.

  Lions | Reggie Bush remains confident    Thu Dec 11, 06:45 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) and the coaching staff believe that he can return to form and be one of the most dangerous weapons out of the backfield. Bush has missed five games because of injuries this year, and he had just 12 touches for 34 total yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Theo Riddick didn't play at all, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said that was a one-game anomaly.

Footballguys view: We have yet to see it in Bush, but hope is always the last thing to die. At best he is an RB3 until we see him do something better.

  Lions | Calvin Johnson a full go    Thu Dec 11, 06:40 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 11, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 10.

  Lions | Reggie Bush limited Thursday    Thu Dec 11, 06:31 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: Bush has yet to recapture the early success he has with the Lions and now only comes in as a RB3 - even in PPR leagues. We like Joique Bell a ton more, ranking him as a high-end RB2 this week.

  Lions | No practice for Reggie Bush    Wed Dec 10, 05:02 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10. Bush ran the ball eight times for 26 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and also had four catches for eight yards. However, he tweaked his ankle again while playing a full game.

Footballguys view: Bush owners should keep a watchful eye on his practice status this week. If he does play in Week 15, we like Bush as a 'what the heck' flex.

  Lions | Eric Ebron to see more work    Wed Dec 10, 01:13 PM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron is slated to be on the field more often now that TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) is out for the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Awesome....we're still not expecting much from the rookie. He's far from a bust, but Ebron's rookie season hasn't been as productive as some would have liked. In 10 games, Ebron has 22 catches for 199 yards and one touchdown.

Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 10, with an ankle injury.

  Lions | Nick Fairley has hearing    Tue Dec 9, 06:01 PM

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley had a review hearing for his DUI case in the district criminal court of Mobile County in Alabama Tuesday, Dec. 9. In August, Fairley was sentenced to a suspended six-month jail term and one year of probation. Fairley reportedly rejected a plea offer in hopes of being placed in a diversion program.

Footballguys view: Fairley is in a contract year with the Lions but has only played in eight games as he is dealing with a knee injury. The Lions did not pick up his fifth-year option earlier this year, and Fairley will head into free agency with several question marks surrounding him.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford peaking    Tue Dec 9, 05:50 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford has completed 75.9 percent of his passes, thrown for 701 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in the last two weeks against the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I feel good. I feel confident in what we're doing and I think the guys in the locker room and on offense definitely feel confident in what our game plan is each week," Stafford said. "We're doing a great job of going out there and trying to execute. Guys are catching the ball, which is always great.'

Footballguys view: Stafford is peaking....but he's doing it against bad competition. The Bears and the Bucs aren't exactly tough defenses to play against.

  Lions | Theo Riddick without a role?    Tue Dec 9, 05:45 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick doesn't have much of a role in the offense right now, because RB Reggie Bush is more valuable as both a runner and a receiver. Bush is averaging 1.1 more yards per carry than Riddick and has more speed than him, too.

Footballguys view: Riddick hasn't shown much effectiveness when running the rock, making the offense predictable when he's on the field. The Lions have run only 25 times of Riddick's 133 snaps this year.

  Lions | Theo Riddick not being punished    Mon Dec 8, 03:19 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick's lack of playing time in Week 14 was not because he was being punished, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Riddick saw just seven snaps on special teams.

Footballguys view: Reggie Bush was back in Week 14, and that led to Riddick not getting used that much. Know that so long as Bush is active and playing, Riddick's role will be negatively impacted.

  Lions | Golden Tate praised by opponent    Thu Dec 4, 07:33 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is another number one receiver in addition to Calvin Johnson, according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Johnthan Banks. Buccaneers defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said Tate opens up the Lions' passing game and gives Johnson and the rest of the offense more help.

Footballguys view: Tate is having a career year in 2014. Even with Calvin Johnson as the WR1 in Detroit, Tate has plenty of fantasy value. He should be drawing praise from opponents every week.
