Nerdy Football Analysis: With Jones out, the Lions will be thin at the wide receiver position with Kenny Golladay leading the group. Expect running back Theo Riddick to so more work in the slot and be a cheap PPR flier in DFS contests.

InjuryLamar Jackson returns

Lamar Jackson returned to practice today. Joe Flacco remained out of practice. If Flacco isn’t starting, and it would be quite surprising if he was at this point, I would imagine he wouldn’t be an emergency backup either. So could lead to RG3 being active for first time all season as well. Harbaugh said he won’t name a starter at QB for Sunday. (Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Flacco hasn’t practiced in two weeks due to a hip injury meaning it’s likely we’re going to get either Lamar Jackson or Robert Griffin III starting in Week 11. It sounds like Jackson is trending toward being the starter, but it’s no guarantee that he plays all the snaps. RGIII could be mixed in making Jackson a risky QB play.
