Lions WR Golden Tate, who injured his shoulder Sunday, is expected to miss time, source says.

Related players: Kenny Golladay

Fantasy Impact:

Tate is waiting for the results of the MRI, but Rapoport said it would likely be "a few weeks." Golladay could stand to benefit the most from Tate missing time, but is still recovering from a hamstring injury. The Lions are on a bye in Week 7.

The Lions are optimistic that QB Matthew Stafford will be able to start vs. Saints, despite injuries to his quad and ankle, I’m told.

Fantasy Impact:

We had a story earlier today that Stafford was banged up in Week 5 and spent some time in the trainers room following the game. This is the first we've seen specifics for his injuries, however. Be sure to monitor his practice time this week. Stafford plays in an early game in Week 6.

Lions Beat: Eric Ebron not the No. 1 TE

Eric Ebron is not the Lions' No. 1 tight end. Not right now.

Darren Fells is the vastly superior blocker, a skill-set that Detroit prized when it targeted the tight end in free agency in March. But he's shown the last two weeks that he has become the far more reliable pass-catcher too.

Fantasy Impact:

That includes snagging fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 4 and 20 yards to make things interesting late Sunday against Carolina. Fells' emergence, though, continues to be a positive development for an offense that is starved for them, especially at the tight end position. Matthew Stafford targeted him twice against the Panthers, and both scored touchdowns. The week before that, Stafford targeted Fells five times against the Vikings. Four were caught, all of which achieved first downs, according to the story.
