Fantasy Analysis

The 10th-year pro started five games new Lions head coach Jim Caldwell when he was the field general for the Indianapolis Colts in 2011, which is why Orlovsky is the favorite to replace the departed Shaun Hill (Rams) as the backup to Matthew Stafford. Since Orlovsky's one-year stint with the Colts, he has thrown passes in just one regular-season contest in the last two years. Orlovsky has a good arm and lots of football smarts, but he lacks accuracy and mobility. Stafford has been an iron man in recent seasons - he has started 49 straight games - so the odds of Orlovsky making a fill-in start seem weak. Orlovsky should be able to operate the Lions offense in a pinch, but he looks like a weak spot-start option.

Passing: 600 Yards, 3 TD, 6 INT.
Rushing: 15 Yards, 0 TD.

Anyone have any news on Best? Will he make a return at some point this season? I've heard from some Week 8, but I doubt that. I'm in a deep league and was thinking about picking him up hopefully a week or two before he comes off the PUP list....

What would you all think about Ocho joining the lions? All his off-field shenanigans aside, I would have to believe that he would make an already potent offense pretty lethal. Thoughts?...
