Fantasy football rankings 2014: Where do Lions players rank?

Gregory Shamus

Here's a look at where some Detroit Lions players landed in one set of fantasy football rankings.

It may only be June, but it's already time to start thinking about the 2014 NFL season, especially from a fantasy football standpoint. Sure, most drafts likely won't take place until late next month at the earliest, but fantasy football rankings are already starting to be released for the 2014 season.

On Rotoworld, for example, Evan Silva recently released his top 150 rankings for the 2014 season. Several Detroit Lions players made the list, and below is a rundown of where they placed in the rankings.

7. Calvin Johnson (first round)
37. Matthew Stafford (fourth round)
48. Joique Bell (fourth round)
50. Reggie Bush (fifth round)
74. Golden Tate (seventh round)

Unsurprisingly, Megatron is still viewed as someone you should target in the first round, and despite his inconsistent nature, Stafford is still viewed as a quarterback worth targeting at the beginning of the fourth round. I suppose that makes sense considering Stafford gets to throw to Megatron and routinely puts up big numbers despite struggling at times.

At running back, Silva actually has Bell a couple spots ahead of Bush. The thinking there is that Bell will end up getting more carries than Bush this year, although chances are the two players will end up with a pretty equal number of touches overall (as evidenced by them being so close in the rankings).

Tate is the only other Lions player in this particular top 150. Eric Ebron was one of the first players mentioned just outside of the rankings, though, so perhaps he will move into a future edition of the top 150 with a strong start to training camp.
