Detroit Lions WR-T.J. Jones’ NFL career started out with a shoulder injury not long after he was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2014 (August 23, 2014). Further down the line, WR-Jones stayed with the team and finally had a chance on the practice squad.

WR-Ryan Spadola may get his chance to be a better target for the DET offense, since starter WR-T.J. Jones has retired to the injured reserves. In comparison, Spadola experience his spat of injuries extremely, during August 2017. Conversely, WR-Spadola was released from that injury status and placed on a lesser level than WR-Jones (i.e., practice squad).

On the contrary, this piece is specifically about wide-receivers.

Now, there are other extremely valuable players – Golden Tate/Marvin Jones/Kenny Golladay – who are capable of effectively fighting opposing defensive fronts. WR-Golden Tate is still the main target, and Tate can make the numbers for fantasy football. But, will WR-Spandola return from the free agent list to start for the remaining portion of this NFL season.

Frankly, look at the team; the Detroit Lions. The Detroit Lions met the maybe point by mid-season. Yes, Detroit 2017 equals a mediocre winner season for the team, which read (7W – 6L)/(3 – 1) Division/and (6 – 4) Conference. FYI: The Seattle Seahawks was division leading football team at that particular time. So, Detroit was placed in the hunt for the Wild Card to the 2017 NFL Playoffs.
