Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is officially active for the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Reynolds should be the main receiver for the Lions this week with Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark Jr. inactive. He has played well so far this season and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams is tied for the NFL lead with four rushing touchdowns, and he leads all running backs in carries in the red zone.
Huddle Up: Williams was already proving to be a flex candidate thanks to his touchdown upside, and with D'Andre Swift sidelined in Week 4, Williams should be no worse than a RB2.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hockenson may see more work in the passing game since the Lions will not have two of the main offensive weapons available. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Reynolds is on track for a bigger role in the passing game with Amon-Ra St. Brown unavailable. He can be a possible flex option in fantasy leagues if he is active for the game.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Chark was back at practice Friday after sitting out the day before. He probably will be able to play in Week 4 and may see a few more targets with Amon-Ra St. Brown sidelined. He could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Jamaal Williams will receive most of the work at running back while Swift is sidelined and should see plenty of touches. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) was ruled out Friday, Sept. 30, for the Week 4 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Hockenson should have a good chance to play in Week 4 and could have an increased role with several Lions receivers dealing with injuries. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Chark was downgraded Thursday, so his availability for Week 4 may be in jeopardy. Fantasy should know more in the next few days because Chark could be a possible flex option if he plays in the game.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) was absent from practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Chark has been fairly quiet over the first month of the season but could see a bigger role if Amon-Ra St. Brown is not able to play. He could be a flex option in some leagues depending on his role.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Hockenson is off to a slow start to the season but was able to find the end zone last week. He has been targeted 18 times in the first three games and should see a decent amount of targets if he plays. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues despite his recent play.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is not practicing on Wednesday, Sept. 28, and would have to feel significantly better to play in Week 4, head coach Dan Campbell said on Wednesday, Sept. 28. "It would have to be, the skies open up and the bright light comes out and, 'I'm good to go and it feels unbelievable and here we go,"' Campbell said. "We're prepared for this. We knew it would be hard to get through a full season with him being healthy -- that's just the nature of the position. Swift, he's different. And I mean that in a good way. And that's just the way it goes."
Huddle Up: There's no question Swift has elite talent, but his inability to stay healthy has been a concern early on in his career. With Swift unlikely to go, Jamaal Williams is in line for a heavy workload and will be a high-end RB2.

Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) received encouraging reports following tests on his injured ankle. The team will be cautious, but it's not expected to be a long-term injury.
Huddle Up: St. Brown has blossomed into the No. 3 overall WR in PPR leagues through three weeks. Keep tabs on him through the week to see how cautious with him Detroit is.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) could possibly be sidelined until after the team's Week 6 bye in an effort to let his ailing shoulder heal up, according to comments from head coach Dan Campbell on Monday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Campbell admits already having thought about doing it, but no decision has been made yet. A multi-week absence from Swift may be a better alternative than limiting his snaps - as has been the case the last two games - and would put Jamaal Williams on the bubble of RB1 status for upcoming games against the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (hip) will play in Week 3's game versus the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hockenson had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging three limited practice sessions during the week. He has gotten off to a slow start this year but has been targeted seven times in each of the first two games, making him worthy of consideration as a low-end TE1 option for fantasy lineups.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Hockenson probably will be able to play, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. It is off to a slow start this season but has been targeted seven times in each of the first two games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Swift had a similar practice schedule last week and was able to play, so he should be in uniform for Week 3. He should be a weekly starting option in all leagues when healthy.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (hip) was limited in practice once again on Thursday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: There has been nothing to suggest that Hockenson won't play this week, but his production thus far makes him a lineup concern moving forward. Hockenson has seen 14 targets through two games, but has just 64 yards and no scores thanks to a lot more competition for targets than in years past. Better days are ahead for Hockenson, who remains a TE2 and every-week starter, but temper expectations for now.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday, Sept. 22, after not practicing on Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Head coach Dan Campbell said Wednesday that Swift is feeling better than he did at this point last week and his ability to get in a limited practice on Thursday after only one limited practice last week suggests that is indeed the case. If so, we'd expect Swift to get more than the seven touches he saw last week as the Lions were trying to protect him. The budding superstar is a must-start RB1.
