  Lions | Ameer Abdullah to remain a non-factor    Fri Oct 12, 11:26 PM

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah will need an injury to one of Detroit's other three backs in order to become part of the rotation again, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Footballguys view: In other news...water is wet. Abdullah just has never played up to his potential in the pros. He's fast, quick and could make big plays but with the Lions he's struggled with injuries and inconsistencies. The Lions backfield would have to be decimated by injury before Abdullah had fantasy relevance. Dynasty GMs in super deep leagues should just hope he gets a shot with another team in the near future because it's not happening for Abdullah in Detroit.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay headed for big year?    Fri Oct 12, 11:20 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay is on pace for 86 catches and 1,370 receiving yards, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press believes he should 'at least' manage 75 catches for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns.

Footballguys view: In 11 games last year as a rookie, Golladay had 477 receiving yards and flashed the ability to make big plays. In his second season, after only five games, Golladay already has 428 receiving yards and is continuing to show his playmaking ability. The Lions are on bye this week but Fantasy GMs know that Golladay is a WR2 for them every week.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson reaches end zone    Sun Sep 30, 05:35 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 55 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Johnson ran over a Cowboys defender on the way to the end zone, so he might be the #1 goal line back over LeGarrette Blount going forward, but the Lions didn't commit to the run in a back and forth game, so Johnson is still more flex against the Packers next than a strong RB2.
