Kenny Golladay caught 1-of-3 targets for eight yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Don't sour on Golladay after this one. He still played more snaps than T.J. Jones as the No. 3 receiver, but the Lions only threw the ball 21 times total and four times after halftime. They held a comfy lead much of the night. Matthew Stafford did look Golladay's way a couple times on jump balls. He'll be on the WR3/4 map next week in a potential shootout with the Falcons.

Sterling Shepard caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He added seven rushing yards on two attempts. Shepard was targeted in the end zone on one play, but the ball was way too high despite Shepard's incredible leap to try and nab it. With Odell Beckham slowly getting back to full health, Shepard's role figures to trend downward in this broken offense.

Golden Tate caught all four of his targets for 25 yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

The Lions only had to throw the ball 21 times total and four times after halftime. There just wasn't enough volume to go around, as Eric Ebron led the team with a 5-42-1 line. Tate will be a strong WR2 next week against the Falcons.

Evan Engram caught 4-of-7 targets for 49 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

Engram was wide-open on his 18-yard touchdown where the Lions thought he was blocking and let him slip behind the coverage into the end zone. Engram has now seen a total of 12 targets through two games, which is decent volume for the rookie. It will likely go down a bit once Odell Beckham gets to 100 percent, but Engram at least looks usable in tight end-premium leagues.

Marvin Jones caught 1-of-5 targets for 27 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Jones hasn't seen many targets or produced many yards through two games, but he's scored a touchdown in both. Jones' score on Monday night was a perfectly-thrown back-shoulder fade where Jones beat sophomore CB Eli Apple. Jones is a low-floor fantasy option if he isn't catching touchdowns. Consider him more of a WR4 next week at home against the Falcons.

Paul Perkins rushed seven times for 10 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He caught both of his targets for 12 yards. Both Perkins and Shane Vereen got nine touches in the loss, with Vereen out-producing Perkins 55-22 in total yards. Perkins is a below-average back running behind one of the league's worst offensive lines. He's not usable as an RB3/FLEX until further notice.
Sep 18 - 11:51 PM

Shane Vereen rushed six times for 28 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He added three catches for 27 yards on three targets. Both Vereen and "lead back" Paul Perkins received nine touches, with Vereen out-gaining Perkins 55-22. Neither back is all that enticing in fantasy leagues, but Vereen at least catches passes and should probably be owned in deeper PPR leagues.
Sep 18 - 11:49 PM

Theo Riddick rushed nine times for 20 yards and caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Riddick didn't get much going. He got all of the clock-killing carries late in the fourth quarter after Ameer Abdullah appeared to tweak his ankle following a 34-yard run earlier on the drive. Riddick should be able to rack up more than a handful of grabs in a shootout against the Falcons in Week 3.
