2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
While Marvin Jones doesn't quite fit what the Lions offense is capable of doing right now, Golden Tate's game fits like a glove. Tate has been a PPR darling since joining Detroit as a free agent in 2014, piling up 90, 99, and 91 reception seasons. While Jones was lighting things up, Tate was barely breathing during an opening five-game stretch where he totaled 133 yards and no touchdowns. To say the Week 6 line of 8-160-1 line came out of nowhere is an understatement! From that game on, it was clear the Lions offense needed to feature Tate in the passing game to be successful. Tate resumed his go-to status, as Stafford targeted him 10 or more times, seven out of the team's final eleven regular season games.

Like most of the Detroit skill position players, I don't expect a big change in stats. The system, and what the Lions are capable of accomplishing on offense isn't going to change a great deal. The ball control passing game will remain and the Lions should be able to run the ball a bit more if their backs stay healthy. Tate should retain a healthy dose of targets, and be a strong PPR option and a fine bet for WR2 production in standard leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury OBJ active, Janoris Jenkins not in Week 2
Beckham set to make season debut
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 18, 7:15 pm

New York Giants
Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) officially ACTIVE for Giants. CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle, hand) is OUT. (ESPN - Dan Graziano)

FFToday's Take: OBJ appears near 100 percent in warmups, so start him if you got him, even though he has a difficult matchup with Darius Slay likely chasing him around. As for Jenkins, he will be missed, so owners can upgrade Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay a bit. Before owners go to crazy on loading up on either Lion, however, the Giants still have 2016 first-round Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. If anything, Golden Tate might see the biggest bump for fantasy purposes.


Lions direct two-TE sets, could benefit Eric Ebron
Daniel Fells handling blocking duties in scheme
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 1, 8:50 am

Detroit Lions
Even with Eric Ebron out with a hamstring injury, the Lions have spent significant time with two tight ends on the field thus far in training camp. Darren Fells and Cole Wick joined Golden Tate and Marvin Jones in the first play of full-team drills each of the last two days, and Fells had a standout practice today, making several tough catches in traffic. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Fells was signed as a free agent in the spring largely for his blocking ability to beef up the run game, and Anquan Boldin was let go. A shift to two-tight end personnel could free up more opportunities for Ebron, who remains a back-end TE1 with upside.
