Speaking Friday, Kliff Kingsbury said that he expects James Conner (ankle) and Chase Edmonds (ankle) to play in Week 15 against the Lions. James Conner looked unlikely to play after logging back-to-back DNPs, but Kingsbury's are an encouraging sign. With Chase Edmonds also likely to be back, the two should form a committee against a woeful Lions team. Both Conner and Edmonds have TD upside, given the matchup. But Conner profiles as the higher upside option if he's healthy.
Detroit Lions DFS Spin
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that T.J. Hockenson underwent thumb surgery Thursday morning and will miss the remainder of the 2021 season. The biggest beneficiary of this from a fantasy football perspective is probably Amon-Ra St. Brown, who finds himself likely to continue to be peppered with targets after receiving 12 in each of the last two games. Hockenson finishes the year with 596 receiving yards and four touchdowns, and was a decent ways behind the top tier even in PPR leagues. The Lions could be very different next season, but Hockenson figures to remain a building block for the offense.
