Shark Bites

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson has been placed on IR with the knee injury he suffered back in Week 11. It ends promising rookie season that saw him average 5.4 yards per carry and haul in 32 balls. We still don't have any details on Johnson's injury, but he should be fine for the offseason program. Zach Zenner, LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick will close out the year in Detroit's backfield. Zenner led the way with a 46% snap rate, 10 carries and 4 targets in last week's loss in Buffalo.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (back) is active for today’s game in Buffalo. He’s a weak fantasy play vs. the Bills’ top-ranked QB defense.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in Buffalo. He played through this issue last week and should be fine this weekend. But Stafford is a bottom-barrel QB with precious few weapons and facing the Bills’ top-ranked QB defense.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. The rookie has yet to practice since going down and has no timetable for return. Detroit’s backfield devolved into a 3-man committee last week with LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner. It’s a situation best avoided in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Lions CB Darius Slay (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. LB Devon Kennard (hip) is inactive. Neither is much of an IDP factor.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (back) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. We’re not expecting the back to be an issue. But Stafford has struggled since losing WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and is just a QB2 for Week 14.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He’s a low-end PPR option.

Lions LB Devon Kennard (hip) and CB Darius Slay (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Kennard put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Slay popped up on the injury report Thursday and was limited Thursday and Friday. We'll update their statuses Sunday afternoon. Neither is much of an IDP option.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (back) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He’s fully expected to start, but this is just another reason to avoid him in fantasy lineups.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He remained sidelined all week and still has no timetable for return. LeGarrette Blount will continue operating as Detroit’s lead ball-carrier, with Theo Riddick handling pass-catching duties.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. New England has struggled against slot receivers this season, but Amendola would be a risky Week 14 fantasy play at less than 100%.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. Don't expect him back for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. With Johnson out the past 2 weeks, LeGarrette Blount has carried 35 times and seen 2 targets. Theo Riddick has tallied 10 carries and 11 targets.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo will serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Rams. We’ll see if the rookie can get back for Week 14. LeGarrette Blount will serve as Detroit’s lead ball-carrier for as long as this game stays close. He’s a risk/reward RB3 or flex play in non-PPR leagues.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) didn’t practice all week and is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Bills. His absence leaves Miami with WRs DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's not going to play against the Rams this weekend, leaving the backfield to LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Bears QB Chase Daniel is expected to start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, but the team "wants to play it safe" with him, according to Garafolo. Daniel played conservative football in Detroit on Thanksgiving, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. In a tougher matchup in New York, he's just a low-end QB2 for Week 13.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. It's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. Look for LeGarrette Blount to again serve as the lead ball-carrier in that one, with Theo Riddick dominating passing-game work.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He got banged-up in last weekend's game against the Colts and ended up playing just 14 snaps. He seems iffy for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah and DT Damon Harrison are questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers as each deals with a shoulder injury. Both players put in limited practices all week. Ansah played through questionable tags the past 2 games. We'd bet on him being active again, but he'll need to grow his role before returning to real IDP consideration. Harrison's issue is new, but his participation in practice all week leaves us optimistic. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Detroit will definitely be without its other starting DT, A'Shawn Robinson, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury.
