Lions' Zach Zenner: Relegated to special-teams work in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zenner was active for the Lions' 34-27 loss to the Packers in Week 3 but logged only nine snaps on special teams and zero on offense.

The NFL's preseason darling in 2015 was active for the first time this season Sunday but wasn't involved in the offense in any capacity whatsoever. Instead, Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington consumed the entirety of the work out of the backfield, where Riddick operated most effectively as a passing-down threat while Washington appeared to be the favored early-down option as the game went on. Thus, Zenner seems to be an afterthought in the Lions' offense for the time being, keeping him firmly off the fantasy radar.

Lions' Anquan Boldin: Scores again in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Boldin tallied four receptions across six targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' 34-27 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Boldin continued to take a backseat to the Lions' primary receiving options but again showcased his veteran savvy in the third quarter by connecting with QB Matthew Stafford on a crafty fourth-down touchdown grab from the two-yard line. Although that score represented Boldin's second touchdown in three games, the red-zone presence of TE Eric Ebron could always strangle Boldin's touchdown potential in any given game moving forward, relegating the wideout to the status of a risky and low-upside fantasy option.

Lions' Golden Tate: Quiet in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tate corralled four of six targets for 40 yards in the Lions' 34-27 loss to the Packers in Week 3. He also received one carry that resulted in an eight-yard loss.

Once again, Tate appeared to be less of a priority in the Lions' offense than fantasy owners have become accustomed to in years past; he saw less targets than RB Theo Riddick (nine), WR Marvin Jones (eight) and TE Eric Ebron (eight), ultimately tying for fourth on the team with Anquan Boldin (six). Furthermore, given the competition for looks amongst the Detroit receiving corps on short-to-mid level routes -- while Jones is almost exclusively sent deep to take the top off the defense -- Tate could continue to struggle to post serviceable fantasy totals moving forward. However, he'll face a Bears defense in Week 4 that allowed Cowboys possession receiver Cole Beasley to tally seven receptions for 73 yards in Week 3.

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.
