  Lions | T.J. Hockenson finds the end zone    Sun Oct 18, 05:31 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson posted two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Hockenson was targeted for a score on the previous play but the fullback Jason Cabinda broke up the pass when he thought he was the target. Hockenson is doing enough to stay in lineups against Atlanta, but we're waiting for the ceiling game.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift rushed 14 times for 116 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also added three receptions for seven yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Swift split the work with Adrian Peterson but was clearly the better and could get even more work going forward. Consider him an upside RB2 next week at Atlanta.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford posts 223 yards, TD    Sun Oct 18, 05:10 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 19-of-31 passes for 223 yards, one touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he ran for 14 yards.

Footballguys view: If you played Stafford it was good process with a bad result. The Lions scored four offensive touchdowns, but three went to running backs on the ground. Stafford will be a good play on paper against the Falcons again next week.

Detroit Lions RB Adrian Peterson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

  Lions | Marvin Jones quiet in Week 4    Sun Oct 4, 06:47 PM

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught one pass for nine yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. He was targeted two times during the game.

Footballguys view: Jones drew a long pass interference, but it would have still been a disappointing day if it had been a long gain because this was a good spot for him with both starting Saints corners out. He's on the fringe of rosterworthy in short bench leagues heading into his bye.

  Lions | T.J. Hockenson finds end zone    Sun Oct 4, 06:45 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson caught two passes for nine yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Hockenson added a two point conversion but was a small time fantasy performer in a matchup that had been producing big numbers for tight ends. The Saints top two corners were out and their quality may have funneled targets to tight ends, but Hockenson was a top 10 pick and should be a more foundational piece of this pass offense. He's a low ceiling TE1 going into his bye.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay catches TD pass    Sun Oct 4, 06:29 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught four passes for 62 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Golladay at least scored but the game could have been better with both of the Saints top corners out and the Lions playing from behind for most of the game. Golladay goes into his bye as a low ceiling WR2 at best.

  Lions | D'Andre Swift reaches end zone    Sun Oct 4, 06:13 PM

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift caught four passes for 30 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. He also rushed for 22 yards on four carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Swift looks like the best athlete in the Lions backfield, but it's hard to picture the Lions doing the right thing and giving him more of the backfield work with Adrian Peterson's experience and all-out effort. Swift is a stash, but one with a low ceiling on this Lions team.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford throws three touchdowns    Sun Oct 4, 05:58 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford went 17-for-31 for 206 yards, three touchdowns and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. He also rushed for 21 yards on three carries.

Footballguys view: Stafford was underwhelming for fantasy despite the Saints playing without their top two corners. He's going into his bye and he's not an essential hold with teams needing to maximize every roster spot during this war of attrition fantasy season.
