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.
The Lions have ruled EDGE Trey Flowers (knee) and CB A.J. Parker (ankle) out for Thursday's game against the Bears. DL Michael Brockers (knee) is questionable after being limited in practice the past 2 days.
The Lions have ruled EDGE Trey Flowers (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Browns. S Tracy Walker (concussion) is questionable. We'll check his status Sunday.
Lions EDGE Romeo Okwara (shoulder) and DL Michael Brockers (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Bears.
Lions EDGE Trey Flowers (shoulder, knee), DL Michael Brockers (shoulder) and EDGE Romeo Okwara (shoulder) are all questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Flowers missed practice all week and probably shouldn't be in IDP lineups even if he plays. Okwara and Brockers each put in limited practices all week. We'll update the status on all 3 Sunday morning. Detroit has already ruled out LB Jamie Collins after confirming that they're trying to trade the veteran. That should clear the way for rookie LB Derrick Barnes to get his 1st start, though we'd like to see the size of his role before considering him for IDP lineups.
New Lions DC Todd Wash says he'll work from a 3-4 base front, according to the Detroit Free Press. Wash adds that DEs Trey Flowers and Romeo Okwara have moved to OLB. For practical purposes, that shouldn't mean much difference for their roles. Each will still primarily rush the passer in passing situations. The question will be whether league-hosting sites change the position eligibility for Flowers and/or Okwara. The Lions still list both guys at DE on the team website, so we wouldn't bet on a universal position switch. But keep an eye out for that possibility where you play. In most cases, switching from DE to LB will mean a dip in IDP value, even if a player posts identical stats. That's because most scoring systems produce bigger fantasy totals among LBs, thanks mostly to tackle scoring.
