Lions' Luke Willson: Not targeted in passing game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willson was not targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

Willson played on just 35 percent of the offensive snaps, compared to 80 percent for Levine Toilolo and 15 percent for Michael Roberts. With no more than 21 receiving yards in any of 13 games in 2018 and no touchdowns to his name, Willson isn't worth any consideration in any fantasy format.

Lions' Luke Willson: Sees time at fullback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willson caught one of two targets for eight yards during Sunday's loss to the Rams.

With Nick Bellore (ankle) sidelined, Willson and Joe Dahl split responsibilities at fullback. Willson remained a minuscule part of the passing offense in this role while watching Levine Toilolo bust out for six receptions and 90 receiving yards. It's impossible to trust him as a fantasy option in Week 14 against Arizona.

Lions' Luke Willson: One target against Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willson caught one pass for four yards during Sunday's 23-16 loss to Chicago.

Time and time again, it's clear Willson isn't a critical part of Detroit's offensive game plan, which was particularly discouraging with both Marvin Jones (knee) and Kerryon Johnson (knee) sidelined. The tight end is nothing more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy option entering a potentially high-scoring affair with the Rams in Week 13.

Lions' Luke Willson: Catchless in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willson was targeted once, but did not record a catch during Sunday's 20-19 win over the Panthers.

Coming off of his best stretch of the year, during which he caught seven passes in three games, Willson was held without a catch for the third time this season. The veteran tight end has not been effective in the passing game and is less valuable from a fantasy perspective than backup Michael Roberts, who missed Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. Thursday brings a Chicago defense that has harassed opposing passing offenses all season.

Lions' Luke Willson: Cleared to face Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willson (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

Willson logged limited practices Wednesday and Thursday and ended the week with a full practice Friday. The 28-year-old's recovery comes at an opportune time for the Lions, as fellow tight end Michael Roberts (shoulder) will not play Sunday. Willson has logged at least 30 offensive snaps in each of his last four games.
