Zac Stacy, who didn’t have a touch in Week 7, could remain a factor in the backfield in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Earlier in the week, head coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy could have 25 carries Sunday.

Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not practice on Friday.

Richardson had said Thursday that he hoped to play Sunday but with another missed practice on Friday, it doesn't look like he's going to be available. If somehow he is, you're not going to want any part of him in your fantasy lineup. Ahmad Bradshaw should see the bulk of the work with Dan Herron working as a back-up.

Marquise Goodwin did not practice on Friday.

Another missed practice for Goodwin doesn't bode well for his chances to play this Sunday. He's not someone you would be starting anyway.

Chandler Jones (hip) did not practice on Friday.

Jones is expected to be out for a few weeks with his hip problem. He will not be active for Sunday's game nor should you expect to see him at practice next week.

Shane Vereen was not spotted at the early portion of Friday's practice.

With no injury reported, the optimistic side tells you that it's just a day of rest. However, since fantasy wins are so crucial at this stage of the game, we'll await word from the team as to the reason behind the absence. Stay tuned.

Reggie Wayne (elbow) did not practice on Friday.

Another missed practice for Wayne and you can simply rule him out for Sunday's action. Whether he misses the following week is yet to be determined. Look for T.Y. Hilton to dominate the targets, but Wayne's replacement, Donte Moncrief has some real nice upside.

Vincent Jackson hasn't had any setbacks and will play through his rib/wrist injuries.

It sounds like Jackson, health-wise, is just fine and will be on the field, business as usual this Sunday. He's got a pretty favorable match-up with Minnesota and their 16th-ranked pass defense.

Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs the Falcons.

Well this doesn't bode well for the Lions on Sunday. Eric Ebron is already out with a hamstring injury and now it looks like Pettigrew will miss the game as well. Joseph Fauria is a nice upside sleeper all of a sudden. Tough to trust but if you're desperate for help, it's an interesting possibility.
