  Lions | Kenny Golladay posts 58 yards, score    Sun Dec 8, 06:14 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay posted six receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings on eight targets.

Footballguys view: Golladay was able to score in garbage time to save his day and should have a much better outlook against Tampa's green secondary next week.

  Lions | Bo Scarbrough runs for 65 yards    Sun Dec 8, 06:12 PM

Detroit Lions RB Bo Scarbrough rushed 19 times for 65 yards in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added one grab for five yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Scarbrough suffered a rib injury in the game but should be ok for the game against the Bucs next week, which won't offer much upside for him. Kerryon Johnson could be back in Week 16, so Scarbrough is droppable in short bench leagues.

  Lions | David Blough throws for 205 yards, TD    Sun Dec 8, 05:51 PM

Detroit Lions QB David Blough completed 24-of-40 passes for 205 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Blough looked like a third-string quarterback in this one, but he gets the weak Bucs pass defense next week to get back on the QB2/Superflex radar if you're desperate.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay open to contract extension    Sat Dec 7, 09:26 AM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay, who has one year remaining on his rookie deal, said that he is open to signing a contract extension with the team during the offseason.

Footballguys view: Golladay, a third-round pick out of Northern Illinois in 2017, has one year left on his rookie deal. He's on the verge of another 1,000-yard season even though the Lions have gone through three quarterbacks (Matthew Stafford, Jeff Driskel and David Blough) this year. "I'll let it take care of itself after the season," Golladay said. "I definitely feel like I've done my part."

  Lions | Matthew Stafford ruled out    Fri Dec 6, 05:26 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back, hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and has been ruled out for Week 14.

Footballguys view: David Blough gets another start for the Lions on Sunday. Lions head coach Matt Patricia said Stafford is still "week to week." We can't imagine the team rushing Stafford back into action for these final few games. Stafford does say the back is healing as it should and he insists that it won't be a problem in 2020.

  Lions | Kerryon Johnson practicing    Wed Dec 4, 12:32 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) will practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: Johnson has been on Injured Reserve with this knee injury and by returning to practice it opens up a three-week window for the Lions to decide whether or not to activate him. The earliest he could return is Week 16, so the Lions roll on with Bo Scarbrough as their lead back for now.

  Lions | Jeff Driskel to IR    Sat Nov 30, 04:01 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 30. QB Joe Callahan was signed to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: David Blough was the starter for the Lions on Thanksgiving and did an admirable job. This hamstring injury now ends Driskel's season and we'll see Blough continue to start so long as Matthew Stafford (back) continues to miss games.

  Lions | Kyle Sloter signed off Arizona PS    Sat Nov 30, 02:54 PM

QB Kyle Sloter was signed by the Detroit Lions off the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: We've admired Sloter in crazy deep dynasty formats when he was undrafted with the Broncos a few years ago. He's bounced around (Vikings, Cardinals) since then and now finds himself as the backup to Lions starter David Blough. We'll see if the Lions get Matthew Stafford (back) out there at some point later this year or if they just roll with Blough for the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Hockenson has not performed at a high level since Week 1. The Lions can use Logan Thomas and Jesse James more with Hockenson banged up.

  Lions | David Blough to be starter for Week 13    Wed Nov 27, 08:17 PM

Detroit Lions QB David Blough will be the starting quarterback for the Lions in Week 13. QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) will serve as the No. 2 quarterback during the game.

Footballguys view: Blough has a good arm and he's a fearless thrower, which could salvage some value for Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, but also could feed the Bears defense some interceptions.
