Lions S Tavon Wilson (back) is out for today's game against the Packers. CB Nevin Lawson (illness), S Quandre Diggs (hand) and DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) are active. None of these 4 is a big IDP factor.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday. But Jones went through the same routine back in Week 3 before going out and posting a 4-69-1 line. He’s a WR3 with upside for Week 5.

The Lions have ruled DE Ezekiel Ansah out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. It’ll be his 4th straight missed game for the shoulder injury suffered in Week 1

11:09am EDT 9/30/18

Lions WR Golden Tate (hip) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He comes with elevated risk after being added to the injury report on Friday but is still worth using in most fantasy lineups.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah missed practice Wednesday because of the shoulder injury that has kept him out since the opener. Ansah put in limited practices each of the past 2 weeks and hit the weekend "questionable" before ultimately being inactive. The missed practice to begin this week, however, might indicate a setback in his recovery. We'll watch for further details ahead of an upside sack matchup with the Cowboys.

Lions CB Darius Slay is active for tonight's game against the Patriots, just a week after suffering a concussion at San Francisco. It's somewhat surprising after Slay reached the weekend without having cleared the league protocol, but Detroit's top cover man is available if you waited on him for your IDP lineup. DE Ezekiel Ansah is inactive for the 2nd straight week, however, because of a shoulder injury.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as questionable, so he comes with added risk. But if you were waiting on Jones, get him into fantasy lineups.

There's "optimism" that Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) will be able to play against the Patriots tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable. "He’ll be monitored throughout the day," Rapoport adds. Jones can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now, but make sure you have a late-game replacement rostered in case he ends up inactive.

The Lions have deemed DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and CB Darius Slay (concussion) questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. It's hard to envision Slay playing after he missed practice all week. Ansah put in limited practices all last week but then missed the game. We'll see about his status Sunday evening, but don't count on Ansah for your IDP lineup.

Lions WR Marvin Jones was added to Friday’s injury report as limited with an ankle injury. It looks like he got hurt in Friday’s practice. He’s listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. We’ll be on the lookout for updates on Jones’ status. The late start might put owners in a tough spot.

Lions CB Darius Slay suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning. That usually means at least 1 missed game, so we're leaving Slay out of the Week 3 DB rankings for now.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the 49ers. Ansah entered the day questionable after limited practices all week. You shouldn't have been planning to use the Lions team defense anyway.
