  • Lions' Andy Jones: Draws two targets

    Jones caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over the Cardinals.

    Jones logged a career high in playing time with 37 offensive snaps thanks in large part to the hamstring injury that forced Bruce Ellington from the game. While Jones wasn't able to much with his increased role, no Lions receiver was particularly productive on a day quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for a career-low 101 passing yards. Depending on the severity of Ellington's situation, Jones could again be in store for heightened playing time in Week 15 against the Bills.

  • Lions' Luke Willson: Not targeted in passing game

    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' Michael Roberts: No catches in desert

    Roberts was targeted twice but did not record a reception during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

    Both Roberts and Luke Willson took a backseat to Levine Toilolo, who logged 80 percent of the offensive snaps and was the only tight end on the team to catch a pass. Roberts has now logged just five receptions for 37 yards over his last five games since busting out against Miami for 48 yards and two scores in Week 7.

  • Lions' Matt Prater: Makes 47-yarder in Arizona

    Prater made his only field-goal attempt and both of his PATs during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

    The Lions easily won the defensive battle Sunday, but only marginally won the offensive battle while playing in an offense devoid of difference makers outside of receiver Kenny Golladay. In fact, Detroit's pick-six late in the third quarter was the only reason the Lions won by two scores. These struggles only allowed Prater one chance at a field goal, and it could be hard for the offense to afford the kicker more tries in a tougher matchup in Week 15 against the second-ranked Bills defense.

  • Lions' TJ Jones: Blanked by Cardinals

    Jones was targeted once but did not record a reception during Sunday's 17-3 victory over the Cardinals.

    Detroit has a dire need for playmakers to step up on offense, and yet Jones remains an afterthought in the game plan. He isn't worth a bench spot in the vast majority of fantasy leagues, let alone starting rosters.

  • Lions' Levine Toilolo: Falls back down to earth

    Toilolo secured both of his targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

    Toilolo predictably fell back down to earth in his first showing after catching four of six targets for a career-high 90 yards last week against Los Angeles. Still without a touchdown and just one target in the red zone over 14 games, Toilolo will remain an unattractive fantasy option in Week 15 against the Bills.

  • Lions' Theo Riddick: Leading receiver against Arizona

    Riddick rushed six times for 28 yards and caught all four of his targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

    The Lions went with a ground-and-pound approach against a Cardinals defense that entered the game having allowed the 10th-fewest yards per pass attempt (7.2), as Detroit finished the game with 31 rushing attempts versus 23 pass attempts. Riddick ultimately tied for the team lead in targets while Kenny Golladay drew heavy coverage from a Patrick Peterson-led Cardinals secondary. Averaging 50 total yards over his last six games but still without a single touchdown on the season, Riddick will remain an uninspiring fantasy play in a Week 15 matchup with a strong Bills defense.
