Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) seems unlikely to play in Week 13 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, as head coach Dan Campbell told reporters that it would be "a tall order but anything's open."
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers would greatly appreciate being able to see Williams twice before the fantasy playoffs begin, but there is a very good chance that will not happen. Campbell has mentioned previously that he wants to get Williams on the field this year, so it seems as though it will be a matter of when and not if it happens. Unfortunately, managers may not get a true taste of his upside until 2023.

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) won't play in Week 12, but next week is a real possibility.
Huddle Up: He has a ton of talent, so it's not out of the question that he could make a splash before the season is up. Keep him stashed if you can.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) will play in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: He hasn't played in a month and tailed off in the last two games he suited up for, but he's still a flex option.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 12. The Lions did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Chark is returning from injury and probably will see a few more snaps each week. He will see a few targets against the Buffalo Bills but can be avoided in most leagues.

Detroit Lions WR D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 12. The Lions did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Swift has been bothered by the injuries for several weeks and is not seeing as many touches as he did earlier in the season. He should still be at least a flex option in leagues because of his involvement in the running and passing games.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) was listed as limited during practice Tuesday, Nov. 22. The Lions held a walkthrough so his status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Reynolds has missed the last three games and would be nothing but a risky boom/bust WR5 option on a short week if active.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark (ankle) was listed as limited at practice Tuesday, Nov. 22. The Lions held a walkthrough so his status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Chark played just 16% of the snaps in his return from an ankle injury. He shouldn't be put in lineups considering the matchup and light workload coming off the injury.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder/ankle) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Nov. 22. The practice was a walkthrough so the status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Swift has been a major disappointment over the last month. He hasn't finished better than a mid-RB2 and has no more than six carries in any of the last four games. The upside may be too high to sit Swift, but at least it seems he's getting healthier.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Lions did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Swift received eight touches in the Week 11 game and was able to find the end zone during the game. He should continue to see more touches each week and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Lions did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Chark returned to the lineup last week but was held without a catch on his one target. He probably is being eased back into the lineup and can be avoided in most leagues until he is more involved in the passing game.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Lions did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Reynolds has missed the last few games because of his back injury and is probably a long shot since it is a short week. Fantasy players should look for other options to use in their lineups.

Detroit Lions WR Jameson Williams (knee) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: It's probably more significant in real-life football than fantasy, but the first-round pick that tore his ACL in the national championship game has the tools to be a special player. He's worth stashing if you're thin at the position or in a deeper league.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark (ankle) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Chark is returning to a barren receiver room outside of Amon-Ra St. Brown. He's a boom/bust WR4 but probably should be avoided if possible.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) was downgraded from questionable to out for Week 11 on Saturday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: With Reynolds out and DJ Chark (ankle) not activated from injured reserve yet, Kalif Raymond becomes a low-end flex play for Week 11.

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Williams should continue to see a majority of the carries in the running game and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Swift should receive a good amount of touches against the New York Giants and is looking to be more productive since returning to the lineup. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) was not spotted at practice Friday, Nov. 18, despite returning to practice Thursday.
Huddle Up: Reynolds may have suffered a setback so he could be trending in the wrong direction to make a return. He likely wouldn't have been an option for fantasy, but this may open more opportunities for D.J. Chark.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Swift has not been a big part of the offense over the last few games but should see more touches this week. He can still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) participated during the portion of practice open to the media Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: It appears as though Detroit's wide receiver room is starting to get healthy, as Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark and Reynolds took part in individual drills during the same practice for the first time in more than a month. What is interesting about Reynolds was a top-24 receiver in fantasy before the team's Week 6 bye before knee and back issues torpedoed his season. While it is unlikely that he returns to that level of production - especially if Chark is healthy - he needs to be on fantasy managers' radar moving forward.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (ankle, shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Detroit Lions RB Jamaal Williams (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Jr. (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve on Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Chark will be ready to play by Sunday, but if he suits up and Josh Reynolds remains sidelined, Chark could return flex value immediately.

Detroit Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder/ankle) was "pissed off a little bit" with his lack of usage in Week 9 versus the Green Bay Packers, offensive coordinator Ben Johnson said on Thursday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Swift saw just 10 snaps last week and has seven carries and eight receptions combined the last two weeks, with a touchdown in Week 8 salvaging what otherwise would have been two disappointing performances in a row. The Lions have been limiting his touches big time as he continues to deal with shoulder and ankle injuries, and the presence of Jamaal Williams only makes him an even riskier start each and every week. The good news is the running back is off the injury report ahead of Week 10 and looks to be as healthy as he's been in quite some time, but it's still hard to tell how much he'll be used. Swift, who is home-run hitter capable of putting up a good fantasy showing with just one play, remains a boom-or-bust flex option for now.

Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 11, and has been ruled out for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Kalif Raymond probably will serve as the No. 2 receiver for the Lions with Reynolds out and could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues. Amon-Ra St. Brown is the only must-start Lions receiver for fantasy players.
