Lions' Brandon Powell: Getting involved on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell caught one of three targets for six yards during Sunday's 34-22 loss to Chicago.

Unlike last week's game against the Vikings, Powell actually had a tangible role on offense and earned more targets than T.J. Jones, who caught one of two passes for 12 yards on the day. However, Powell still isn't seeing the type of involvement that would warrant serious fantasy attention. With Bruce Ellington, who signed with Detroit earlier in the week, a significant threat to steal some of his playing time in the short term, it doesn't seem like Powell's status will change anytime soon.

Lions' Brandon Powell: No offensive snaps despite Tate's departure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell did not log an offensive snap during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Minnesota.

With Golden Tate off to Philly, there was a chance the 5-foot-8 Powell could take on some sort of offensive responsibilities Sunday. However, TJ Jones ended up taking on the majority of Tate's vacated snaps, and fellow depth wideout Andy Jones was even given a couple of plays over Powell, who was used exclusively as the team's return specialist on both punts and kickoffs. Unless the Lions coaching staff suddenly starts giving him some opportunities to produce on offense sometime soon, Powell belongs far off the fantasy radar.

Lions' Brandon Powell: Could get regular slot work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell may get playing time in the slot after Golden Tate was traded to Philadelphia, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Fifth-year pro TJ Jones may seem like an obvious choice to replace Tate in the three-receiver formations that dominate Detroit's offense, but Powell also has a chance to pick up some of the slack. The undrafted rookie out of Florida has been groomed specifically for slot work, and he was actually activated over Jones for Sunday's 28-14 loss to Seattle. The decision to play Powell over Jones may have primarily been motivated by special teams, but it can still be taken as a sign of the team's confidence in the rookie. Regardless of how this plays out, Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones figures to be the more fantasy-relevant beneficiaries of added target volume in Tate's absence.

Lions' Brandon Powell: Used as punt returner in first career game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell gained eight yards on two punt returns during Sunday's 28-14 loss to Seattle.

Powell was active on game day for the first time in his young career but was only asked to field punts while Ameer Abdullah handled kickoff returns. It's possible the Lions will want to give him more chances in this capacity going forward in order to more fairly determine his effective off a larger sample size, and it's not out of the question for the 5-foot-8 speedster to get involved on offense, too. Powell is thus someone to keep an eye on in deep leagues, as he could be the next man up in the slot should the injury bug strike Golden Tate sometime down the line.

Lions' Brandon Powell: Makes team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell has secured a spot on the Lions' 53-man roster, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports.

Powell paced the NFL this preseason in both receptions (16) and punt-return average (15.7). The diminutive receiver is unlikely to continue seeing significant offensive action given the talent Detroit has above him on the depth chart, but Powell could log time as a return man on special teams if anything happens to Jamal Agnew or Ameer Abdullah.
