Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: New career high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin totaled 37 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 16 games in 2019.

Despite opening the year with a significant role, Reeves-Maybin was almost exclusively a special-teams player for the majority of the season. While injuries to other members of the Lions defense forced the Tennessee product into an expanded role for the last three games of the campaign -- Reeves-Maybin contributed over six tackles per game over that stretch -- there's a reason he wasn't seeing much playing time before, which says something given how poor Detroit's linebacking corps was in 2019. Reeves-Maybin has one year left on his rookie contract, but the Lions probably aren't planning on him being a starter in 2020.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Nine tackles in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin racked up nine tackles on a career-high 65 defensive snaps during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Broncos.

Down starting linebackers Jarrad Davis (ankle) and Christian Jones (shoulder), the Lions turned to Reeves-Maybin to handle a large role and the 24-year-old produced nicely. He wasn't perfect, of course, but he at minimum made for a solid source of production. With Jahlani Tavai (shoulder) now on the shelf as well, Reeves-Maybin should get all the playing time he can handle during Sunday's season finale against the Packers.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Expected to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin is slated to start in Christian Jones' (shoulder) place Sunday against the Buccaneers, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Reeves-Maybin has barely played on defense this season, but he'll be thrust into a starting role with Jones and Jarrad Davis (ankle/knee) sitting out. A third-year pro, Reeves-Maybin has 61 tackles (49 solo) through 36 career games.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Reeves-Maybin was able to suit up against the Rams in Week 13 despite his neck injury, so it's somewhat surprising to see him land on season-ending injured reserve. It remains to be seen whether the second-year pro aggravated his injury during last week's loss. Kelvin Sheppard and Nicholas Grigsby could benefit from slightly increased snaps with Reeves-Maybin sidelined.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Active in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) will play in Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Reeves-Maybin plays sparingly behind Christian Jones and Devon Kennard at outside linebacker, as he has recorded just 20 defensive snaps over his last four outings. The second-year pro shouldn't be considered in the fantasy realm.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Reeves-Maybin sat out last week's loss to the Bears due to a lingering neck injury, and he could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Rams. If Reeves-Maybin were unable to suit up Week 13, Miles Killebrew and Eli Harold could once again receive a slight increase in snaps.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Reeves-Maybin did not appear in two consecutive games due to a neck injury before returning last week against the Panthers, but he'll head back to the sideline Thursday. Miles Killebrew and Eli Harold are slated to provide depth at outside linebacker behind Christian Jones and Devon Kennard.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Cleared to face Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

Reeves-Maybin has missed the last two games with this injury. The Tennessee product was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday but practiced in full Friday. Reeves-Maybin will likely resume his second-string role behind Christian Jones.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Reeves-Maybin was able to practice on a limited basis this week, but he'll miss his second consecutive game with a neck injury. The outside linebacker will be missed on special teams, while Miles Killebrew could see additional snaps behind Christian Jones and Devon Kennard at outside linebacker.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game at Chicago.

Reeves-Maybin missed last week's game against the Vikings but has a chance to return against the Bears after practicing on a limited basis this week. Miles Killebrew could be the remaining reserve outside linebacker if Reeves-Maybin is unable to play Sunday, since Eli Harold (shoulder) is listed as doubtful.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck/toe) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Reeves-Maybin was originally listed as doubtful, so his being downgraded to out isn't much of a surprise after he was a limited participant at practice this week. Miles Killebrew is likely to step up into the reserve role at outside linebacker in Reeves-Maybin's absence.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (neck/toe) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Reeves-Maybin was limited in practice all week due to neck and toe injuries, and he seems to be a long shot for Detroit's divisional matchup against the Vikings in Week 9. The rotational linebacker has only logged more than 30 defensive snaps once this season, so his absence would be unlikely to have a major impact on the Lions' defense.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Enjoys successful rookie year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin tallied 30 tackles, an assisted sack, two PBUs and one forced fumble over 14 games in 2017.

The Lions selected Reeves-Maybin in the fourth round of the 2017 draft out of Tennessee and the rookie fared fairly well in a limited role. His main weaknesses were exposed in run defense, but his first full NFL offseason training program could help him be more prepared for that phase of the game in 2018. With Tahir Whitehead and Paul Worrilow set to hit free agency, not to mention Brandon Copeland (pectoral), who will be a restricted free agent, Reeves-Maybin seems highly likely to be in store for an expanded role.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Vikings.

Reeves-Maybin was a full participant in practice all week, so the linebacker being active does not come as a surprise. He's expected to work primarily on special teams in Thursday's contest.

November 22, 2017 07:12 PM
Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Vikings.

Reeves-Maybin was a full participant in practice all week and seems to be on the probable side of the questionable tag. He'll be in store primarily for special-teams work if he suits up in Week 12.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Full participant Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (ankle) was a full participant at the Lions' walkthrough Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Reeves-Maybin has missed the previous two games, but his activity level Monday is cause for optimism regarding his status for Thursday's Thanksgiving matchup versus the Vikings. Upon his return, he'll provide depth at outside linebacker while logging the majority of his snaps on special teams.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Inactive Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with Chicago.

Reeves-Maybin will be missing his second consecutive game due to his ankle injury. Steve Longa and Nick Bellore figure to see some added reps once again in Reeves-Maybin's absence.

November 17, 2017 11:24 PM
Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Continues to nurse ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The rookie fourth-round pick plays sparingly on defense, but he has 11 tackles (nine solo) in the last three games. If he's unable to play, Steve Longa will likely see more defensive snaps when other linebackers need a breather.

November 11, 2017 05:16 PM
Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Ruled out for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reeves-Maybin was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns with an ankle injury.

Reeves-Maybin did not participate at practice this week in any capacity, so this is not surprising. Steve Longa and Nick Bellore remain the Lions' only two reserve linebackers in his absence.

Lions' Jalen Reeves-Maybin: Headed to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions selected Reeves-Maybin in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 124th overall.

Detroit continued to address its issues at linebacker Saturday by going after Reeves-Maybin. He came into the year as a potential Day 2 selection after a strong junior season that saw him rack up 105 total tackles and 14.0 tackles for loss. However, Reeves-Maybin had a season-ending shoulder injury early in his senior year and reportedly had a shaky pro day. If Reeves-Maybin is able to recapture his 2015 form, he'll end up being a nice value pick for the Lions in the fourth round.
