Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back, hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: There is no timetable for Stafford's return, so he appears to be unlikely to play in Week 12. Jeff Driskel would receive another start if Stafford is ruled out but can be avoided in most standard leagues.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) is still considered week-to-week because of his back injury, according to head coach Matt Patricia.
Huddle Up: Stafford reportedly could miss as many as six weeks because of the injury, so he probably will miss at least one more week. Jeff Driskel will remain the starting quarterback while Stafford is sidelined and threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns in the last game. He could be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught one of his five targets for 34 yards in a 35-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Golladay failed to score for the first time in three games, and having Jeff Driskel under center won't do his fantasy value any favors. Still, he should be able to flirt with WR2 production against Washington in Week 12, even if Driskel draws another start.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones caught four of his five targets for 43 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Jones has run hot and cold all year, but he is up to eight touchdowns and is on pace for 1,000 yards. He is a high-upside WR3 candidate.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) may be sidelined for as many as six weeks because tiny, non-displaced fractures in the upper thoracic spine.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Stafford will be able to play again this season, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. Jeff Driskel will continue to be the starting quarterback but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson on Saturday, Nov. 16, officially cleared the concussion protocol and has been removed from the team's Week 11 injury report.
Huddle Up: Good news for Johnson owners, but hopefully it's in a large league with J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins also sharing snaps, carries and touches. Proceed with caution.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Amendola was targeted eight times last week but finished the game with only 29 yards. He should receive a handful of targets this week but can be avoided in most leagues.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) will not play in Week 11, head coach Matt Patricia said Friday, Nov. 15. Asked if there's any scenario where Stafford plays Sunday, Nov. 17, Patricia replied 'not this Sunday, no.'
Huddle Up: That's two straight missed games for Stafford, who was in the midst of a QB1 year, and with the 3-5-1 Lions' playoff hopes fading fast, it's fair to wonder if Stafford's season might not be over as well. In the meantime, QB Jeff Driskel gets hids second straight start while the Lions' pass-catchers receive downgrades again across the board.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (hand) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Amendola was a popular target for Jeff Driskel last week but will be facing a good Dallas Cowboys defense in Week 11. He probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players need to monitor the situation to see if Johnson is cleared to play in the Week 11 game. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues if he is active for the game.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 14, as he deals with a back injury.
Huddle Up: With a second straight missed practice, it's starting to look like Stafford may miss a second straight game. We should know more after Friday's always-key practice and weekly injury report.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (hand) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Amendola has been targeted at least eight times in three of the last four games but has been held to under 30 yards in each of the last two games. Fantasy players in most leagues should be able to find better options and can keep Amendola on the bench.

Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Johnson has to pass the concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so fantasy players need to keep an eye on the situation. He can be a flex option if he is available to play. Paul Perkins and J.D. McKissic would split playing time if Johnson is ruled out and could both be possible flex options depending on the leagues.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) is out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: He would return against a poor matchup in the Dallas Cowboys. Keep an eye on his status throughout the week, but he'd be a low-end QB1 option.

Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol, according to head coach Matt Patricia.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation during the week to see if Johnson will have a chance to play in Week 11. Paul Perkins and J.D. McKissic would both receive playing time if Johnson is ruled out and could have value in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola registered four grabs for 29 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Amendola remains more of a low-end WR4 for fantasy owners in PPR leagues with much lesser value in standard formats. The Lions will host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson ended up with three receptions for 47 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Hockenson burst onto the scene in Week 1 with six grabs, 131 yards and a touchdown. However, since then he has just 19 catches, 212 yards and a score in the past eight outings. Treat him more as a low-end TE2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay ended up with three receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Golladay has posted at least one touchdown in each of the past three games, and a total of four touchdowns during the span. He remains a must-start WR2 or low-end WR1 in some formats. The Lions host the Cowboys in Week 11.

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones finished with five grabs for 77 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Jones has four or more grabs in each of the past four outings, and seven of his nine games this season. He has been a friend to fantasy owners in PPR leagues, serving as a decent WR4 option with lesser appeal in standard play. The Lions host the Cowboys in Week 11.

Detroit Lions RB J.D. McKissic carried 10 times for 36 yards in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears and he added six receptions for 19 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: McKissic led the Detroit backfield with 16 total touches, while Paul Perkins had eight total touches and Ty Johnson had six. If that breakdown continues, McKissic is worth a look as a low-end RB3 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel completed 27-of-46 passes for 269 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears in place of the injured QB Matthew Stafford (back).
Huddle Up: Driskel had a fair day, but he isn't someone you'll want to rely upon in standard fantasy leagues if he gets another start in place of Stafford. He might not be a bad low-cost DFS option, however, in Week 11 at home against Dallas. Again, that's assuming Stafford isn't healthy enough to play.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (head) will not return to the Week 10 game because of a head injury.
Huddle Up: Johnson likely suffered a concussion and will need to go through the concussion protocol before he is allowed to play again. J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins likely will split playing time in Week 11 if Johnson is not able to play. McKissic can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues, while Perkins could have some value in standard leagues.

Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) is considered week-to-week because of fractured bones in his back. One source said he could miss 'this week or three weeks.'
Huddle Up: Jeff Driskel will be the Lions' starting quarterback while Stafford is sidelined but he is not a recommended fantasy option in any format. In addition, the fantasy value of players such as WRs Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay is likely to take a major hit until he returns.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Amendola posted only 29 yards in Week 9 but did record 200 yards in the previous two games. He has been targeted at least five times in four of the last five games and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.
