Mike Thomas loses playing time to Kris Durham, fantasy value remains low

Jonathan Daniel

The Lions stuck with Kris Durham at the No. 2 wide receiver spot in Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

With Titus Young and Ryan Broyles out for the season, Mike Thomas was expected to step up as the No. 2 receiver in the Lions passing game. However, Kris Durham to precedence over Thomas on Sunday night against the Packers.

Durham was in for 78 of Detroit's 84 offensive plays, while Thomas saw just 17 snaps throughout the game.

Fantasy Impact: It looks like we can forget about Thomas emerging as a potential fantasy play. The Lions just signed Durham off the practice squad on Tuesday, so it's rather concerning he saw so much more playing time than Thomas in Week 14.

Neither wideout looks like much of an option for your lineup at this point.
