Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

With Amon-Ra St. Brown leaving early for a concussion, Lions WR Kalif Raymond led the team in targets (6), receptions (5) and receiving yards (75) in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. TEs Brock Wright and T.J. Hockenson followed, tying at 4 catches apiece. Wright beat Hockenson 57-48 in yards. Josh Reynolds managed just 1 catch for 8 yards on 2 targets, trailing WR Tom Kennedy in each category despite leading him in playing time and routes.

The Lions are re-signing WR/KR Kalif Raymond, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Raymond caught a career-high 48 balls in 2021, his 1st year with Detroit. We wouldn't bet on a repeat, though, with T.J. Hockenson and D'Andre Swift returning from injuries, Amon-Ra St. Brown having broken out late in the year and D.J. Chark arriving in free agency. (Plus, we'll see what the team does in the NFL Draft.)

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.

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.
