Week 3 injury report: Kenny Golladay returns to practice

Week 3 injury report: Kenny Golladay returns to practice

Photo by Jorge Lemus/NurPhoto via The Lions star wide receiver is on track to make his 2020 debut this Sunday. After a couple weeks of struggling through health problems, the Detroit Lions are finally getting a little healthier. During their Wednesday practice, several Lions players practiced for the first time this regular season. Most notably, Kenny Golladay practiced in a limited fashion after missing the first two weeks with a hamstring injury. The Lions offense has yet to connect on a passing play of 40+ yards without Golladay in the lineup—something Matthew Stafford was able...

Lions - Packers Unsung Hero of the Week: T.J. Hockenson holds it down

Photo by Stacy Revere/ The sophomore tight end is becoming one of Matthew Stafford’s favorite targets. The Lions are a mess, and the offense isn’t living up to the potential we all envisioned. The passing game has failed to pick up where it left off when Matthew Stafford was at the helm last season, in no small part due to Stafford simply not looking like himself. On that note, Kenny Golladay has yet to play, and the Lions will need him around on Sunday to have a fighting chance against the fast-paced Arizona Cardinals. One thing has been consistent through two weeks, however....

NFL Week 2 gambling guide: Best bets for Lions vs. Packers

Photo by Leon Halip/ What to bet on ahead of today’s divisional tout. Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers. Matthew Stafford vs. Aaron Rodgers. Every year, the two battles between these teams prove to be among the most exciting on the schedule, and it almost always feel like there is a ton at stake. This year feels the same once again. An 0-2 start the 2020 might kill Detroit’s playoff hopes before they even get going. Green Bay, on the other hand, is on top of the world, and earning another divisional win in Week 2 would give them a huge early advantage in an NFC North race that...

Matthew Stafford on popping the bubble of his own privilege

These tough times riddled with racism issues and systemic oppression dealt against people with color helped the 32-year old to take things into perspective and realize that there are things bigger than the game […] The post Matthew Stafford on popping the bubble of his own privilege appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Detroit Lions Week 2 Madden Sim: Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers

Come watch as the truth about the Lions and Packers is revealed. Much like the real 2020 Detroit Lions, the virtual Detroit Lions are 0-1 after falling to the virtual Chicago Bears in last week’s Madden 21 simulation. It was a rough day for Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense, as they fell 17-3 to their NFC North foes. But a new weeks brings a new opportunity. The Packers may close to a touchdown favorite this week over the Lions, but isn’t that just a bigger opportunity for the Lions to show that maybe they are the kind of competitive team that can hang with the big boys? The...

Stafford pens article on social justice: ‘Police brutality, white privilege, racism — it’s all real’

Stafford pens article on social justice: ‘Police brutality, white privilege, racism — it’s all real’

Photo by Rey Del Rio/ The Lions quarterback spoke up in rare fashion Friday. Matthew Stafford isn’t one of the off-field spotlight. He doesn’t use social media. Whenever he does something for the community or for a charity, he does it with a whisper, not a shout. Even in the realm of football, he’d much rather let his play on the field do the talking than spend time in front of a podium explaining it all. But Stafford stepped out of his comfort zone this offseason. On Sunday, he was one of few NFL quarterbacks to take a knee during the anthem in support of the fight against racism...

Open thread: Which Lions-Packers players will boom and bust in fantasy this week?

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ Spoiler alert: the Green Bay passing game will do well. I guess those of you who were brave enough to start Adrian Peterson last week were somewhat rewarded, although his 13 points in half PPR were not exactly week-winning. He does seem like the lead back for now, but experts are not high on him, ranking him RB40 this week (with D’Andre Swift RB41). Just like last week, most FantasyPros rankers are not too high on the Lions skill players. Matthew Stafford (QB14), Marvin Jones (WR28), and T.J. Hockenson (TE12) are fringe starters, although Jones is probably a...
