Darren Fells: Reaches deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fells agreed to terms Wednesday with the Browns on a three-year, $12 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mainly valued for his work as a run blocker, Fells proved to be a respectable pass-catching complement behind starting tight end Eric Ebron in Detroit last season, hauling in 17 of 26 targets for 177 yards and three scores. With David Njoku and Seth DeValve both ranking as higher priorities in the passing game at tight end for new quarterback Tyrod Taylor, it's likely that Fells will see his involvement as a receiver decline in Cleveland. Fells should still log plenty of snaps on early downs when the Browns look to pick up chunks of yardage on the ground.

Lions' Darren Fells: Logs three touchdowns in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fells caught 17 of 26 targets for 177 yards and three touchdowns across 16 games in 2017.

After spending his first three seasons in Arizona, Fells bolted for Detroit in the 2017 offseason but didn't evolve into anything more than a blocking specialist with his new team. The bulk of his receiving production came in a three-game span from Week 4 to Week 6 when he caught eight of 11 targets for 90 yards and all three of his touchdowns. The former professional basketball player, who's now 31 years old despite entering just his fifth season in the NFL, will now be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year. Fells graded out as Pro Football Focus' 22nd-ranked tight end and could have a number of suitors on the open market.

Lions' Darren Fells: Snags 23-yard pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fells brought in one pass for 23 yards during Sunday's 24-21 victory over the Buccaneers.

Fells saw less playing time than Eric Ebron for the first time in a while Sunday, which is strange since the Lions were playing without right tackle Ricky Wagner (ankle, back) and figured to use their veteran blocking specialist to help out on the edge. Regardless, Fells remains far off the fantasy radar.

Lions' Darren Fells: Minimal usage against Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fells secured both of his targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 44-20 loss to the Ravens.

Fells again led Lions tight ends in playing time, but rookie Michael Roberts continues to eat into his snap count. In fact, the past six games in which Roberts began earning consistent double-digit snaps directly corresponds with the end of Fells' mini-explosion (relative to him) where the veteran caught eight passes for 90 yards and three scores within a three-week stretch. With Roberts unlikely to go away -- and Eric Ebron still in the fold as well -- Fells is unlikely to return to fantasy relevance.

Lions' Darren Fells: Blanked by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fells saw three targets but was held without a catch during Thursday's 30-23 loss to the Vikings.

Fells, operating from the slot, looked to have come down with a touchdown in the second half but the play was overturned after replays showed the ball hit the ground. Outside of that play, Fells wasn't heard from much, as he did most of his work as an in-line blocker. He isn't on the fantasy radar ahead of a Week 13 matchup with the Ravens.
