  • Lions' Darren Fells: Totals 35 yards

    Fells caught two of three targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

    There won't be many days when Fells outproduces T.J. Hockenson in nearly every receiving category. After catching just one pass for two yards over the first two weeks of the season, this could be one of the most productive outings of the year for the 35-year-old Fells.

  • Lions' T.J. Hockenson: Bottled up by Ravens

    Hockenson caught two of two targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

    After totaling 20 targets over the first two weeks of the season, Hockenson saw just two passes sent his way as the Ravens took away one of Jared Goff's safety valves. However, thanks in part to a surprising showing from the subpar Detroit defense, Goff also attempted just 30 passes after throwing 93 over the first two outings. With Goff more likely than not to attempt more throws than that in a given game, there should be plenty of better days ahead for Hockenson and his fantasy investors.

  • Lions' Quintez Cephus: One catch against Ravens

    Cephus secured his only target for eight yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

    Cephus drew a pass interference penalty on a second pass that was sent his way, but he and most other Lions receivers took a backseat to Kalif Raymond, who was the lone receiver in the starting lineup and ultimately saw a team-leading 10 targets. It was a disappointing but not totally surprising result for Cephus investors who may have been trying to take advantage of the receiver's ascent into a key role with Tyrell Williams (concussion) on IR. However, with Williams set to miss at least the next two games, Cephus will have more chances to take advantage of an expanded role.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Targeted 10 times in loss

    Raymond (thigh) caught six of 10 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

    Raymond stepped up as the top performer in the Lions' underwhelming wide receiver group with Tyrell Williams (concussion) on IR, leading the team in both targets and receiving yards. With tight end T.J. Hockenson and running back D'Andre Swift both above him in the passing game pecking order, Raymond will be no better than a flex consideration against the tough Bears defense Week 4.

  • Lions' Jamaal Williams: Two TDs through three weeks

    Williams rushed 12 times for 42 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to Baltimore.

    Williams watched D'Andre Swift get the Lions on the board with a two-yard touchdown run in the third quarter but picked up one of his own from one yard out in the fourth. The Lions went on to take the lead with a field goal with 1:04 to go, but Baltimore answered back with Justin Tucker's record-breaking 66-yard field goal to win it at the buzzer. Williams and Smith have both excelled in a Detroit offense that has flowed through the two running backs and tight end T.J. Hockenson, though the Lions still are in search of their first win heading into a Week 4 trip to Chicago.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Over 100 scrimmage yards with a TD

    Swift (groin) rushed 14 times for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens. He also caught all seven of his targets for 60 yards and threw an incomplete pass.

    Swift's two-yard touchdown run in the third accounted for all of Detroit's points through three quarters. He almost added another touchdown in the fourth quarter after catching the ball in the flat, but he was ruled just short of the end zone after turning upfield. Jamaal Williams ended up capping that drive with a one-yard score after Swift came up short again on the next play. Swift has 19 catches through three weeks and more receiving yards (166) than rushing yards (123), as he's become the focal point of a Lions offense that doesn't get much production out of its wide receivers. The 2020 second-round pick should remain busy Week 4 against the Bears.

  • Lions' Jared Goff: Held without TD by Ravens

    Goff completed 22 of 30 passes for 217 yards and added a four-yard rush in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Ravens.

    Goff failed to throw a touchdown after totaling five in his first two games with Detroit, but he also played the first turnover-free game of his Lions tenure. He actually had the team in position to win by leading a pair of second-half touchdown drives -- both capped off by short rushing scores -- before Justin Tucker bounced a league-record 66-yard field goal in off the crossbar to win it for the Ravens on the game's final play. Given Goff's lack of receiving weapons, he'll be a QB2 option at best in Chicago in Week 4.

  • Lions' Michael Brockers: Active against Baltimore

    Brockers (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Ravens, according to Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site.

    Brockers wasn't included in the inactives' list for Sunday, so he should have a role in this contest. The 30-year-old has racked up nine tackles and one sack in two appearances this season.

  • Lions' Trey Flowers: Not playing Sunday

    Flowers (shoulder) is inactive Sunday against the Ravens, according to Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site.

    Flowers is dealing with shoulder and knee injuries, and his chances of playing Sunday were already quite slim. This will be his first absence of the season, as he racked up nine tackles (seven solo) and half a sack in his previous two appearances.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Suiting up despite thigh injury

    Raymond (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Raymond was a starter Weeks 1 and 2, but he saw only six targets while playing 75 and 63 percent of snaps on offense. Qunitez Cephus is probably the better bet for volume, though Raymond's speed should lead to occasional big plays if he continues to get a lot of snaps.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Active to face Ravens

    Swift (groin) is active for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Swift has been listed with the same injury all season, though this is the first time he's failed to log a full practice to close out the week (he was limited Wednesday through Friday). Swift has handled 19 carries and 16 targets on 66.4 percent snap share through two weeks, and he'll now take aim at a Baltimore defense that's missing three of its top four defensive linemen plus starting OLB Justin Houston.
