Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown racked up 114 yards and 2 TDs on 11 receptions in Sunday's beatdown of the Jaguars. That marked his 3rd game over 100 yards among the past 4 and his 4th straight appearance with 9+ receptions. WR D.J. Chark and RB D'Andre Swift tied for 2nd on the team with 6 targets apiece and were the only other Lions to catch more than 3 passes.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown racked up 122 yards and a TD on 9 catches to dominate Detroit receiving in the narrow loss to the Bills. WR Kalif Raymond and RB D'Andre Swift tied for 2nd on the team with 4 catches apiece. No other Detroit player exceeded 35 receiving yards. WR D.J. Chark caught the team's other TD pass, tallying 2 receptions for 16 yards in all.

11:33am EST 11/20/22

Lions WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Giants. It’s unclear how big a role he’ll play in his 1st action since Week 3, so Chark isn’t a recommended fantasy start today.

7:24pm EST 11/19/22

Lions WR D.J. Chark (ankle) has been activated from IR. That puts him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. Chark has been out since Week 3 due to a setback with the fractured ankle he suffered in September of 2021. Chark tallied 18 targets over the first 3 games of the season but caught just 7 for 98 yards and 1 score. He might be worth an add in deeper fantasy leagues but shouldn't be in Week 11 lineups.

The Lions have designated WR D.J. Chark to return from IR. Shark hasn't played since Week 3 because of an ankle injury. The team now has 3 weeks to decide whether to return him to the active roster. We'll see how soon Chark actually gets back into the lineup, and we'll need to see at least 1 game from him before considering him for fantasy football lineups. Chark collected 7 catches for 96 yards across the 1st 3 games of the year.

Lions WR D.J. Chark (ankle) has been designated to return from IR. He's expected "to do a little bit" in Wednesday's practice, per insider Tim Twentyman. It doesn't sound like Chark will be ready to play vs. the Giants this weekend, but we'll monitor his progress.

7:25pm EDT 10/22/22

The Lions placed WR D.J. Chark (ankle) on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 4 games as he apparently deals with a setback with the ankle he fractured in September of 2021. Feel free to cut Chark from fantasy rosters.

Lions WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys. He’s having trouble with the ankle he fractured in September 2021 and has no public timetable to return. Chark is not a must-stash on fantasy rosters.

Lions WRs D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday. If they can't play vs. the Cowboys this weekend, Detroit would be down to WRs Kalif Raymond and Tom Kennedy behind Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said Wednesday that WR D.J. Chark is dealing with issues related to the fractured ankle he suffered in September 2021. "Certainly we don’t want anything to rear its head again," Campbell said. "But I think it’s like anything else, it’s something that’s bothering him and we just got to get him to where he feels right and get it back to where it needs to be." Chark missed Weeks 4 and 5 and still wasn't able to practice on Wednesday coming off the bye week. Don't bank on him playing vs. the Cowboys on Sunday.

Lions WRs D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. It's a concern coming off the bye and has both guys looking iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. We'll see if they're able to practice tomorrow.

Lions WRs D.J. Chark (ankle) and Quintez Cephus (foot) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We'll see if he's available come 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Lions WRs D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (ankle) returned to limited practices on Thursday. Both guys are now trending toward being available for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. WR Quintez Cephus remained sidelined and looks unlikely to play in that one. Check back tomorrow afternoon for another update on Detroit's Week 5 WR situation.

Lions WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle), D.J. Chark (ankle), Josh Reynolds (ankle) and Quintez Cephus (foot) all missed practice on Wednesday. St. Brown and Chark missed Week 4 and appear to be in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. We'll see about Reynolds and Cephus. Tom Kennedy, Kalif Raymond and Maurice Alexander are Detroit's healthy WRs right now. Check back tomorrow for another update.

The Lions have downgraded WR D.J. Shark (ankle) to OUT for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. That leaves QB Jared Goff without his top 2 wideouts, as Amon-Ra St. Brown had already been ruled out. The team elevated WRs Tom Kennedy and Maurice Alexander from the practice squad. Kalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus should join Josh Reynolds in the starting lineup.

Lions WRs D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (ankle) are questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. Both guys got in 2 limited practices this week -- Chark on Wednesday and Friday; Reynolds on Thursday and Friday. We're expecting them both to play on Sunday and operate as Detroit's top 2 WRs with Amon-Ra St. Brown out. But check back around 11:30 am to make sure they're active.

The Lions have ruled WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. And that's not the only injury at play in this pass-catching corps. TE T.J. Hockenson (foot), WR D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds (ankle) are also dealing with injuries that have cost them practice time this week. Khalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus sit behind that group if any others wind up inactive. HC Dan Campbell also said Friday that RB D'Andre Swift is "probably out" for the game. We'll update official statuses for others as they come out.

Lions WR D.J. Chark (ankle) went from a limited practice on Wednesday to no practice on Thursday. That puts his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks in question. WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is also banged up, missing practice on Wednesday but returning to a limited workout on Thursday. We'll update the situation tomorrow.
