Week 7 Outlook
The Lions placed DL Trey Flowers (wrist) on injured reserve.
Flowers is expected to miss three weeks and then return in Week 12 against Houston. He has registered two sacks so far this season.
Trey Flowers finished Sundays loss to the Chicago Bears with seven total tackles (six solo) and one sack.
Flowers now has five sacks and 36 total tackles through Week 10. He is only worth rostering and playing in super deep IDP leagues. Flowers will have an excellent chance to add to his sack totals in Week 12 (Washington) and 13 (Chicago).
Trey Flowers finished Sunday’s win over the New York Giants with four solo tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.
Flowers is worth rostering in deeper leagues, especially if he continues to sack the QB. Beyond that, Flowers can be kept on waivers.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Trey Flowers' new contract with the Lions is worth $90 million over five years.
The deal includes $40 million in guarantees. The $18 million AAV is actually a big higher than Flowers was projected for, so he did well here. Flowers is now one of the highest paid defensive ends in football.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Trey Flowers will be signing with the Detroit Lions.
It’s expected to be a five-year deal. Lions coach Matt Patricia already added ex-Patriot Danny Amendola this morning, and now he gets another former colleague in Flowers, who was one of the best edge rushers available in free agency.
