Lions WR Josh Reynolds and TE Brock Wright were activated from the COVID list on Monday. Both guys should be available for this weekend's finale vs. the Packers. WR Kalif Raymond remains on the COVID list for now.

Lions WR Kalif Raymond has joined WR Josh Reynolds on the COVID list. If they're not able to get cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks, Detroit will be down to WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown, Khadarel Hodge, Trinity Benson and Tom Kennedy. St. Brown should continue to rack up targets, and RB D'Andre Swift should step back into a big role in the passing game.

Lions WRs Josh Reynolds (thigh) and Kalif Raymond (shoulder) are active for today's game vs. the Falcons. Neither is a recommended fantasy play with Tim Boyle under center.

Lions WRs Josh Reynolds (thigh) and Kalif Raymond (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. Both guys got in 3 limited practices this week and figure to play on Sunday. But they carry more risk than usual -- to go along with their unexciting ceilings.

The Lions are placing WR Tyrell Williams on IR for the concussion that kept him out of Monday night's game in Green Bay. That means the veteran receiver will miss at least 3 more contests. Quintez Cephus led Detroit wideouts in targets and worked well ahead of the rest of the group in playing time against the Packers. On top of that, he looks like the best player among them to date. Kalif Raymond and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown checked in close to each other as the 2nd and 3rd WRs in Green Bay, claiming 63% and 60% of the offensive snaps, respectively.

Lions WR Kalif Raymond (thigh) is active for tonight's game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Saturday and listed as questionable, so there's some added risk here. With WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) out, it's Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson at WR for Detroit.

Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) has yet to practice this week and is unlikely to play vs. the Packers on Monday night. That’ll leave Detroit with some combination of WRs Kalif Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson. Avoid.

According to Jeff Risdon of Lions Wire, WR Kalif Raymond has "been the most consistent downfield weapon all summer in Detroit, seizing a starting WR spot and showing some playmaking ability." Detroit recently cut WR Breshad Perriman. Veteran WR Tyrell Williams looks like the top guy, but it also looks like a pretty open situation for garnering target share. Raymond has seen just 30 total targets since hitting the NFL in 2016 as an undrafted free agent. He's already on his 5th team. So odds are against him gaining fantasy relevance this season. But he might be in the only WR corps in the league where it's a possibility. We wouldn't draft Raymond in any but the deepest of fantasy football leagues. But we'll keep an eye on his role.

The Lions have released WR Breshad Perriman. It's not a shocking move after an offseason and camp that provided only negative reports on the veteran wideout. But Detroit did guarantee $2 million on the 1-year, $2.5 million deal Perriman signed this offseason. Cutting him despite having to pay that money highlights how poor a summer Perriman has had. Tyrell Williams, Quintez Cephus and Amon-Ra St. Brown seem likely to run as the top 3 wideouts in Detroit. We'll see exactly how the group shakes out as the Lions get down to their 53-man roster by Tuesday.

Update: Lions insider Jeff Risdon tells us that WR Kalif Raymond is the favorite for the outside spot opposite Tyrell Williams. Neither Raymond nor Cephus is worth a spot on fantasy rosters.
