MLive.com - [Full Article]

Hakeem Valles has [been put in tough positions] the last couple weeks at tight end. And he's handled the assignment so well, you have to wonder whether he's on the roster bubble at all heading into Saturday's cut down to 53 players.

Related players: Luke Willson, Michael Roberts, Levine Toilolo

Fantasy Impact:

Valles played with the starters in Detroit's 33-30 win Friday night against Tampa, finishing with three catches for 38 yards—which led the position group. Now he has seven catches for 69 yards in the preseason. That's more than Luke Willson, Michael Roberts and Levine Toilolo—the three favorites at the position—combined. And then Willson left the Bucs game with a knee injury. The story said Valles has seen a lot of practice time with the ones as well.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. New England Patriots

Against the 49ers last Sunday, Luke Willson got the start and played on 52 percent of the snaps, compared to 29 percent for Levine Toilolo and just seven total snaps for Michael Roberts. While Willson finished with a 13-yard reception on his only look from Matthew Stafford, it was Roberts who collected a 15-yard TD. Right now no Lions tight end is even worthy of a fantasy roster spot.
