Lions running back Joique Bell hopes to return in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joique Bell (ankle) plans to practice this week and expects to play Sunday against the Bears, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Assuming he is able to return to action this week, there's an opportunity for Bell to reclaim a portion of the Detroit Lions ' backfield touches, with fellow RB Ameer Abdullah having fumbled twice in Week 5.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford secure as Detroit's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though he was pulled in the third quarter of Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Cardinals, Matt Matthew Stafford remains the Detroit Lions ' starting quarterback, the Detroit News reports.

Per the report, Stafford, who finished Sunday's game having completed 20 of 32 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown to go along with three interceptions, before being replaced by Dan Orlovsky, is not on a short leash, according to coach Jim Caldwell. Stafford -- who currently ranks 33rd in the NFL in passer rating and 34th in yards per attempt to date -- will look to turn things around in Week 6 against the 2-3 Bears, who are allowing an average of 28.4 points per game to date. It's a decent matchup on paper, but Stafford's struggles over the Lions' 0-5 start make him a hit-or-miss fantasy option this coming week.

Lions RB Theo Riddick nabs 10 passes in Week 5 loss to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Theo Riddick caught 10 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown off of 13 targets in Sunday's loss to Arizona.

Despite just two carries on the season, Riddick's pass-catching ability has made him the Detroit Lions ' most consistently productive back in 2015. His 30 receptions rank 12th in the league and first among running backs. He trails only Calvin Johnson for the team lead in catches. Riddick has has caught at least five passes in each of the last four games and is becoming potential-starter material in PPR leagues.

Lions WR Lance Moore snags first touchdown of 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lance Moore caught six passes off of eight targets for 55 yards and a touchdown.

Moore collected his most targets, catches and yards since 2013 on Sunday. With tight end Eric Ebron out with a knee injury, Moore saw an uptick in production during Week 5 and could be primed for a repeat performance if Ebron is held out again Week 6 given the Detroit Lions ' dependency on passing the ball.

Lions WR Golden Tate snags eight catches in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golden Tate caught just 8-of-18 targets for 74 yards in Sunday's 42-17 loss to Arizona. He also lost a fumble.

Tate saw most of his targets in the second half when backup QB Dan Orlovsky entered the game for an ineffective Matthew Stafford, who threw three interceptions. He's not making many big plays, with just three receptions of 20+ yards on the season, although the entire Detroit Lions ' offense is struggling. He'll try to bust out next week against Chicago.
