Player Notes

  • Finds end zone in Week 4 win
    St. Brown secured five of seven targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' 34-20 win over the Packers on Thursday night.

    Advice: The star wideout took a back seat to running back David Montgomery, who spearheaded Detroit's victory with a 121-yard, three-touchdown effort on the ground. However, St. Brown found a way to make an impact via his 24-yard scoring grab in the first quarter. The third-year star's reception and receiving yardage totals were season lows, yet he remains an elite option in all formats heading into a Week 5 home matchup against the Panthers on Sunday, Oct. 8.

  • Explodes for three touchdowns
    Montgomery rushed 32 times for 121 yards with three touchdowns while catching both of his targets for 20 yards during Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    Advice: Despite speculation over Montgomery's level of involvement coming off a thigh injury, the veteran wound up reclaiming full control of the backfield from rookie Jahmyr Gibbs, who finished with eight carries and five targets. The extent to which he did so was nothing short of shocking, as Montgomery tied his career high in rushing attempts while absurdly getting more usage on the ground than quarterback Jared Goff had through the air. With four touchdowns in his first three games with the Lions, Montgomery appears to have picked up right where Jamaal Williams left off in 2022. The good times could keep rolling in a Week 5 matchup with a Panthers team the allowed the second-most rushing touchdowns (six) through the end of Week 3. Yesterday, 10:33 pm
    Week 4 Projected Rank
  • Modest output against Packers
    Goff completed 19 of 28 passes for 210 yards with one touchdown and one interception during Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    Advice: After getting picked off on the third play of the game, Goff rebounded with a quick touchdown drive thanks to a number of big pass plays. Detroit never looked back thereafter, though Goff didn't do much else besides escort David Montgomery up and down the field en route to a three-touchdown performance for the running back. This makes for a third underwhelming fantasy performance in four weeks for Goff, which may not be the production many expected from him after he ended the 2022 campaign with zero picks and five multi-score outings over the final seven weeks. He'll look to rebound in Week 5 as the Lions enter a matchup with Carolina team that will remain without starting cornerback Jaycee Horn (hamstring). Yesterday, 10:18 pm
    Week 4 Projected Rank
  • Marvin Jones once again held catch-less
    Marvin Jones was held without a catch in the Lions’ Week 4 win over the Lions.

    Advice: Jones was targeted only one time all evening. Catch-less since a rough Week 1 against the Chiefs, Jones might not make it through the entire season on the Lions’ 46-man game-day roster. Yesterday, 9:14 pm
    Week 4 Projected Rank
  • Kalif Raymond has 40-yard rush vs. Packers
    Kalif Raymond had a 40-yard rush in the Lions’ Week 4 win over the Packers.

    Advice: Raymond lost two yards on his lone passing-game target. Raymond’s first quarter rush was the Lions’ longest play of the evening. Raymond maintains legitimate play-making upside, but it is being sporadically utilized. The 29-year-old has no fantasy value in 12-team leagues. Yesterday, 9:12 pm
