Lions LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (shoulder) and DL Michael Brockers (neck) are active for today's game against the Packers. Each guy entered the day questionable.

11:33am EST 1/9/22

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. That’s good news for WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift.

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers after a limited week of practice. We’ll find out whether he’s playing around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That's an upgrade after he was sidelined all last week. We'll see if Goff can make it back for Sunday's finale vs. the Packers.

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.

3:03pm EST 1/2/22

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. QB Tim Boyle will make his 3rd start of the season. He was decent enough last week to trust WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Lions RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. HC Dan Campbell said they’ll “cut him loose.” There’s still some added risk with Swift in his first game since Week 12, but there’s also RB1 upside.

Lions HC Dan Campbell called QB Jared Goff (knee) "doubtful" to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. That figures to mean another start for QB Tim Boyle, who was at least good enough to feed WR Amon-Ra St. Brown 9 catches on 11 targets for 91 yards and a score last week. St. Brown remains a solid Week 17 fantasy play.

It doesn't sound like the Lions plan to limit RB D'Andre Swift in his first game back from a shoulder injury. "We're not going to put him out there until he's healthy and we feel like he's going to be ready to go this week, and he's been wanting to go," HC Dan Campbell said Wednesday. "We feel like we're in a place where, 'Let's go. Cut him loose and let him continue to grow and get better.'" There's still a chance Detroit's plans change mid-game -- or that Swift aggravates the shoulder injury. But there's also a good chance he steps right back into the role that made him a top-10 fantasy RB over the first 11 weeks of the season.

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 RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's basically confirmation that he'll be back for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks.

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He told reporters that he hurt the knee in the Week 15 win over Arizona and is "day to day." We'll see if Goff is able to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said Wednesday that he expects RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) to return for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. Swift has been out since Week 12 but put in 3 limited practices last week. We'll look for clues on how big a role Swift will play in his 1st game back, but he'll carry plenty of upside vs. Seattle's 31st-ranked RB defense.

The Lions on Monday placed WR Josh Reynolds on the COVID list. Unless we learn that he's a close contact, this should knock Reynolds out of any Week 17 fantasy-lineup consideration -- even if he makes it back in time for the game.

The Lions on Monday activated QB Jared Goff from the COVID list. He should be ready to face the Seahawks on Sunday.

Lions LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (shoulder) and DL Michael Brockers (knee) are active for today's game against the Falcons.

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.

11:31am EST 12/26/21

Lions RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He returned to limited practices this week and might be back for Week 17. Jamaal Williams and Craig Reynolds should handle most of Detroit’s backfield work today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Lions QB Tim Boyle is expected to start vs. the Falcons today. QB Jared Goff remains on the COVID list. Boyle threw for a whopping 77 yards on 3.35 yards per attempt back in Week 11 -- although, in his defense, that game was played in crappy weather. Still, Boyle is a significant downgrade for Detroit's offense today.

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.
