Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 13 vs BAL (2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Darren Fells was limited to only two catches, both in the short passing game. Fells had no usage in the red zone that has buoyed his fantasy production in recent weeks.
2017 Week 12 vs MIN (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Darren Fells had two prime opportunities for touchdowns down the seam but dropped both. The first one was arguably broken up by the defender, but the type of ball Fells should have caught. The second was a ball that Fells had in his hands, but failed to secure through the catch and fall to the ground. Fells was held without a catch in the game, but continues to see high leverage targets by Matthew Stafford in the red zone.
2017 Week 9 vs GB (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Darren Fells caught his only target for 10 yards. Fells was targeted in key spots in the red zone in recent weeks, but Detroit went away from Fells this week. Notably the Lions did struggle in the red zone, stalling out twice on 1st and goal situations form inside the two-yard line, and Fells was not targeted in either situation.
2017 Week 8 vs PIT (3 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Darren Fells continued to be a red zone favorite of Matthew Stafford. Stafford threw an excellent ball to Fells down the seam in the end zone for what would have been a touchdown, but the ball was broken up at the catch point. Fells was also targeted on a ball out of his reach in the red zone. He finished with only one catch for 12 yards.
2017 Week 6 vs NO (4 / 2 / 26 / 1 rec)
Darren Fells continued to see high value targets against New Orleans. He was targeted in the red zone on a 4th and goal from 5-yard line where he caught the ball short of the end zone in the flat and was stopped short of the end zone. Fells caught another touchdown pass, his third in two weeks, on a ball down the seam. Fells has emerged as the most reliable tight end option for Detroit in high value situations.
2017 Week 5 vs CAR (2 / 2 / 24 / 2 rec)
Darren Fells made the most of his two targets converting both targets for touchdowns. One target was on a red zone scramble drill where Fells adjusted to Stafford scrambling and worked himself open for a touchdown. Fells was targeted again on an out route on Carolina's 20-yard line which he converted for a run after the catch for a touchdown. Fells had four career touchdowns before the game.
