Lions' Quintez Cephus: Sees 10 targets in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cephus caught three of 10 targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Bears.

Without Kenny Golladay (hamstring), Cephus stepped into a huge role and finished second among all rookie receivers in Week 1 by logging 79 percent of his team's offensive snaps (62 of 78). Meanwhile, Marvin Hall and Jamal Agnew saw 16 or less snaps apiece. While Cephus wasn't the most efficient with his opportunities, a couple of them came in the end zone, and it's important to know the rookie can command this kind of workload when given the opportunity. If Golladay remains sidelined Week 2, Cephus could be a sneaky play against Green Bay.

Lions' Quintez Cephus: Slated for expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Kenny Golladay (hamstring) declared doubtful, Cephus could see an expanded role in Sunday's game against the Bears, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Meanwhile, Danny Amendola (hamstring) is listed as questionable. Should both receivers sit this one out, Cephus, Marvin Hall, and Jamal Agnew would be left to fight for snaps behind Marvin Jones. With Agnew just recently transitioning to receiver from cornerback this summer, Cephus and Hall would be the favorites for playing time in that scenario, where Cephus profiles as a possession-type option while Hall is a deep threat. Accordingly, Cephus is probably the one who would be most affected by Amendola being cleared to play.

Lions' Quintez Cephus: Getting open
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cephus is impressing with his ability to get open during training camp, Nick Baumgardner of The Athletic reports.

Cephus had the worst time in the 40-yard dash among all participating receivers at this year's combine, and it doesn't sound like he's making anyone forget about that. However, Cephus's lack of speed might make it even more impressive that he was able to make a pair of big grabs against No. 3 overall pick Jeff Okudah on Tuesday. While it will be hard for Cephus to see the field in 2020 as long as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Danny Amendola are healthy, dynasty GMs should keep in mind that none of those three are currently under contract in 2021.

Lions' Quintez Cephus: Heading to Motor City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions selected Cephus in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 166th overall.

The Wisconsin product survived a shaky combine performance to hear his name called in the fifth round. Cephus was basically the only game in town when it came to the Badgers passing game, gobbling up 27 percent of the team's targets in 2019 after missing 2018 due to off-field legal issues. He was productive with that volume, too, averaging 9.6 YPT in an offense that otherwise averaged 8.0 yards per pass attempt. Cephus lacks elite speed but can get up -- he jumped 38.5 inches in the vertical. Detroit has talent at the top of its receiving depth chart, but it's possible that he climbs into a WR4 role for the Lions before too long.
