Quintez Cephus could earn another start for Lions

Lions rookie WR Quintez Cephus is likely headed for a second straight start when the Detroit Lions head to Green Bay to face the Packers, according to Kyle Meinke of mLive.com. Kenny Golladay (hamstring) has not returned to practice this week, opening the opportunity for Cephus.

"He did a great job," said Lions QB Matthew Stafford. "He’s a guy that came in Day 1 and was asked to do a lot, and he never skipped a beat."

"(He) Kind of hopped in there when it was his turn to get in there," Stafford continued. "Went out there and executed plays, so I know as a player out there, I have a lot of confidence in him, I know our coaching staff does as well. He’s just a guy who continues to work hard and learn and try to prove himself.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Cephus has earned the trust of Stafford and the coaching staff, and he was rewarded with 10 targets this past Sunday. It is safe to say that he won't see 10 more against the Packers this Sunday, but the Lions will get the ball to whomever gets the offense going without Golladay. Cephus is on the WR4 radar as long as Golladay is out.
