Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Stafford has posted solid numbers this season and should have some success against the Green Bay Packers. Fantasy players looking for a bye week replacement can consider using Stafford this week.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hockenson has a good chance to play this week if he is cleared but is a risky option since the Lions play on Monday Night Football. Fantasy players may want to avoid Hockenson this week if they have better options available.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Amendola has a chance to play this week but has not been a big part of the passing game over the last few weeks. Fantasy players likely will be able to find better options for their lineups and can keep Amendola on the bench.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Stafford has thrown nine touchdowns and two interceptions in four games this season. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a bye week replacement in some leagues.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Hockenson appears to be on track to play in Week 6 as long as he does not suffer a setback. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Amendola's status for Week 6 is still uncertain, so fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation. He is a risky option since the Lions play on Monday Night Football, so players may want to look at other options.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Stafford has played pretty well during the early part of the season and posted 291 yards and three touchdowns in his last game. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues or a possible bye week replacement.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Hockenson still needs to be cleared to play, so he may be a game-time decision this week. He will be a risky option since the Lions do not play until Monday Night Football, so fantasy players may want to avoid him this week.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Amendola was not able to play in the Week 4 game but has had time to recovery over the bye week. He had a strong opening game but has not done much since. Amendola probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) was a 'full go' at the team's open practice Thursday, Oct. 10. Hockenson remains in the concussion protocol after being injured Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Great sign with the Lions coming off their bye. If Hockenson is cleared, he's a low-end TE1 consideration against the Packers on Monday night.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) will practice Wednesday, Oct. 9, but he remains in the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: It looks like he'll have time to clear the protocol before facing the Green Bay Packers. It's a tough matchup, though, and Hockenson is a TE2 this week.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones is tied for the third in the NFL with seven receptions of 20-plus yards this season.
Huddle Up: Jones is on pace to top 1,000 yards this season, but despite making some big plays, he's found the end zone just once in the first four games. He's not a must-start option, but Jones has potential as a flex play against favorable matchups.

Detroit Lions S Tracy Walker's 32 solo tackles this season rank second in the NFL. Overall, Walker has 36 tackles, three tackles for loss, three passes defensed and an interception.
Huddle Up: After a quiet rookie year, Walker has emerged as a sneaky option in leagues that include an IDP spot for a defensive back.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol after leaving the team's Week 4 game. Head coach Matt Patricia said the team is not concerned about Hockenson's shoulder.
Huddle Up: Hockenson will need to pass all of the concussion tests before he is allowed to play, so he probably will be questionable for Week 5. Fantasy players should have other options available in case he is ruled out.

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay managed five catches for 67 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 4 against the Kansas City. He was targeted nine times.
Huddle Up: Golladay is the top dog in the Detroit receivers room, and he has been targeted at least eight times in all four outings while scoring a total of four touchdowns. He remains a decent low-end WR1 or must-start WR2 in all fantasy leagues, although you'll need to make alternate plans in Week 5 with his team on a bye.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson registered three grabs for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs before leaving for good due to a concussion.
Huddle Up: Hockenson was injured trying to hurdle a tackler, landing awkwardly while slamming his head on the turf. He'll have two weeks to rest and get better with the team off until Week 6.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones registered three grabs for a team-high 77 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Jones has at least three receptions in all four of his games while posting 56 or more yards in three of the outings. He remains a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 6 after the team's bye.

Detroit Lions RB J.D. McKissic rushed four times for 30 yards in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added a reception for 11 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: McKissic is nothing more than a change of pace option, especially when Kerryon Johnson is running well like he was in Week 4. Still, McKissic should only on a blip on the fantasy radar in the deepest of leagues heading into Week 6 after the team's bye.

Posted 9/30/2019 12:47 am UTC
Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson rushed 26 times for 125 yards in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs while adding two grabs for 32 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Johnson entered the day with 126 rushing yards over his first three games with just 2.6 yards per carry, so this was a much-needed performance for his fantasy owners. It wasn't all great, as he lost a fumble. Treat him as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 after the team's bye.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford completed 21-of-34 passes for 291 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs while adding 18 rushing yards.
Huddle Up: Stafford actually outperformed Patrick Mahomes, who didn't run or throw for a touchdown, although the Chiefs were able to come up with the win. Stafford is healthy and past the back issues which plagued him in 2018, and he is looking like his former fantasy stud self. The Lions are off in Week 5.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (head) left the team's Week 4 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Hockenson had to be carted off after taking a hard fall during the game. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues but is not a weekly starting option.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Stafford has had a decent start to the season but will be facing a solid Indianapolis Colts defense this week. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola's (chest) status remains uncertain heading into Week 4's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed the team's first two practice sessions during the week but participated on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 27, and is officially listed as questionable on the injury report.
Huddle Up: Amendola has not been much of a factor in the Lions' offense this season and can remain benched in all fantasy formats even if he is declared active for the game.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Stafford was added to the injury report Friday but should still have a good chance to play this week. He is off to a decent start in the 2019 season but probably should only be used in two-quarterback leagues at this point.

Huddle Up: Amendola's status for Week 4 is uncertain at this time, and he could be a game-time decision. He has been quiet over the last few weeks and can be kept on the bench this week even if he plays.
