  • Lions' Brian Branch: Avoids serious injury

    Coach Dan Campbell said Friday that the ankle injury Branch sustained Thursday at Green Bay doesn't appear to be anything too serious, Kyle Meinke of reports.

    As the negative results of his X-rays would suggest, Branch dodged a severe injury in Week 4. With that being said, it's still not a certainty he'll be ready for Week 5 even with the extended week to prepare.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Now eligible for Week 5

    Williams is eligible to play as soon as Week 5 against Carolina after the NFL and NFLPA agreed Friday on a new policy for player gambling, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    The new policy increases punishments for betting on NFL games and decreases punishments for betting on other spots from team facilities. The league originally suspended Williams for the first six games of the season but will now allow him to come back after sitting out four weeks, potentially providing another boost to a Detroit passing game that's largely leaned on WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown and Josh Reynolds and TE Sam LaPorta. If Williams lives up to his first-round billing it'll be one of the league's best groups of pass catchers, with potential for RB Jahmyr Gibbs to give the Lions a fourth high-impact player at some point. On the other hand, Reynolds could maintain a degree of fantasy relevance if Williams struggles to earn snaps and/or targets.

  • Lions' Antoine Green: Playing time rising

    Green was not targeted with a pass during Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    While Green was not targeted with a pass, he has seen his offensive playing time increase in three consecutive weeks while 33-year-old veteran Marvin Jones has seen his role decline. However, Green has yet to see a target since Week 2, and he will need to log more than 21 percent of the offensive snaps he saw Thursday to garner fantasy relevance.

  • Lions' Craig Reynolds: No touches with Montgomery back

    Reynolds did not record a carry during Thursday's win over Green Bay.

    Reynolds logged one offensive snap and only made an impact returning kickoffs on special teams with David Montgomery back to carry the rushing load. Especially after proving to be more than a Montgomery injury away from a notable role, Reynolds has returned to fantasy irrelevance for the time being.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: No targets

    Wright was not targeted with a pass during Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    Wright logged over half of the offensive snaps, but the Notre Dame product has not been targeted in three games since his two-reception performance in Week 1. Meanwhile, rookie Sam LaPorta has exceeded all expectations as the Lions' top pass-catching tight end. As long as LaPorta is healthy, there probably won't be any need for Wright to catch passes on a regular basis.

  • Lions' Marvin Jones: Playing time dwindling

    Jones was targeted once but did not catch a pass during Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    After logging over half of the offensive snaps in Week 1, Jones has seen his snap share decline with each passing week. With Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond effectively complementing top receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and tight end Sam LaPorta, there's no reason to expect Jones' usage to spike anytime soon. The return of Jameson Williams (suspension) in Week 7 will make it even harder for the veteran wideout to make a dent in the box score.

  • Lions' Riley Patterson: Converts two more field goals

    Patterson converted both of his field-goal attempts and four of four PATs during Thursday's 34-20 win over the Packers.

    While the Detroit offense put up four touchdowns for the second time in four games, Patterson at least did more than kick extra points in this contest thanks to a pair of sub-40-yard field-goal attempts. After entering the game tied for 27th in field-goal tries through three weeks, back-to-back showings with multiple attempts has Patterson's fantasy value trending in the right direction. Up next is a Week 5 matchup with a Carolina team that allowed the eighth-most points through three games.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Picks off Love twice Thursday

    Jacobs had five solo tackles and four passes defensed, including two interceptions, in Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    Jacobs came into Thursday's game with one career interception in 28 NFL games, but he managed to pick off Jordan Love twice. The cornerback returned the first interception 20 yards to Green Bay's seven-yard line in the second quarter, and Detroit punched in a touchdown two plays later to take a commanding 24-3 lead. After his first interception led to points, the second prevented the Packers from scoring, as Jacobs notched the interception on Detroit's four-yard line and returned it 14 yards in the fourth quarter.
