  Lions | T.J. Hockenson a non-factor vs. Ravens    Sun Sep 26, 05:42 PM

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson made two receptions on as many targets for 10 yards in Week 3, vs. the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Hockenson came crashing back to earth in fantasy leagues as Kalif Raymond and the running backs did the heavy lifting for the passing game. We should still leave Hockenson in lineups against the Bears, but our view of his floor is a lot lower than it was coming into Week 3.

  Lions | Jared Goff efficient in losing effort    Sun Sep 26, 05:34 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff completed 22 of 30 for 217 yards without a touchdown or interception in Week 3, vs. the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Goff's numbers were hurt by how close the game was. Next week he could be hurt by the Bears inability to score points.

  Lions | Jamaal Williams productive in last-second loss    Sun Sep 26, 05:29 PM

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams ran 12 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, vs. the Baltimore Ravens, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He caught both of his targets for 25 yards.

Footballguys view: Williams short score made him a decent flex and adequate RB2 this week. He's best held as bye/injury/emergency depth in PPR leagues as he gets about half of the snaps, but less than half of the production in this backfield.

  Lions | Tyrell Williams lands on IR    Thu Sep 23, 12:30 PM

Detroit Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) on Thursday, Sept. 23, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Williams will now be cleared to return in Week 6 if he's able to come back at that time. The Lions turn to Quintez Cephus to get more targets with Williams out. Cephus has flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in deeper leagues.
