News: The Lions released wide receiver Lance Long on Friday to clear a spot on the active roster for tight end Shaun Chapas, who was promoted from the team's practice squad. Chapas will serve as depth at the position as starting tight end Brandon Pettigrew is unlikely to play in Week 15.
Analysis: Chapas has spent most of the season on the Lions' practice squad after being among Dallas' final cuts during the preseason. He is not expected to make an immediate impact with Detroit and should be left untouched in all formats at this point.
News: Cowboys FB Shaun Chapas was called up from the practice squad on Wednesday and is expected to make his NFL debut in Sundays game against Arizona. Second-year pro Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, a converted FS turned WR who also returned punts and kickoffs, was released to make room for Chapas.
Analysis: Chapas, a seventh-round pick from Georgia, has been on the practice squad all year. The Cowboys have missed injured FB Tony Fiammetta (illness) the last two weeks. Chapas is just a blocking fullback and won't get many, if any, touches on offense. Ignore him in Fantasy.
