Lions' Marvin Jones: Surpasses 200 yards receiving
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones racked up 205 receiving yards and two touchdowns by hauling in six receptions on eight targets during Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Jones' big day was a bright spot for the Lions and was heavily influenced by the Lions' sizable deficit, which led to quarterback Matthew Stafford airing it out often and targeting Jones eight times (season low). He now has over 400 yards receiving throughout the first three weeks of the 2016 campaign, his first season in Detroit. Jones appears to have settled in as the team's go-to receiver, while Golden Tate notably made just four catches for 40 yards Sunday. He'll look to keep the momentum rolling next week against the Bears.

Lions' Dwayne Washington: Ties for team lead in carries
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Washington notched 38 yards on 10 carries to go along with one catch on one target for a loss of three during Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Washington was given the same amount of rushing attempts as starter Theo Riddick, but he didn't have much of an impact in the passing attack. The Lions were forced to throw the ball quite a bit due to the fact they were trailing the Packers early, which resulted in a slight reduction of Washington's role in the offense. Riddick wasn't productive on the ground, averaging less than one yard per carry, so Washington should be given additional chances next week against the Bears.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Struggles on the ground
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Riddick ran for just nine yards on 10 carries, but added seven receptions for 39 yards during Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Riddick's fantasy value was mainly limited to PPR formats in the Lions' Week 3 performance, while fellow running back Dwayne Washington received the same amount of carries and put up more yardage. Riddick led the team in receptions, however, as the team was forced to throw plenty due to playing from behind the majority of the contest. He has failed to find the end zone in his past two games, but he'll look to change that next week against the Bears.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Comeback effort comes up short
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 28 of 41 pass attempts for 385 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's loss to the Packers. He also added an interception and 11 yards on two carries.

Stafford and the Lions were forced to play from behind for a majority of Sunday's contest after getting down early, which opened the door for the quarterback to put up big numbers. His favorite target Week 3 turned out to be Marvin Jones, who he connected with six times for 205 yards and two scores, including a 73-yard play. Stafford had a similar game to his Week 1 performance against the Colts, when he also tossed three touchdowns. Sunday's effort was a notable improvement from a lackluster performance in last week's loss to the Titans. His next test will come next week in a division matchup against the Bears.

Lions' Tyrunn Walker: Active for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (calf) is active for the Lions' Week 3 matchup Sunday against the Packers, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

Walker only put in one full practice during the week, but he's still expected to fill his usual starting role at one of the defensive tackle spots. He's recorded six tackles and no sacks through the Lions' first two games.
