Kris Durham scores first preseason TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Lions wide receiver Kris Durham made one of his two grabs count for six during Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Durham caught a short 4-yard touchdown pass from Matt Stafford in the first quarter. Earlier on the same drive, he hauled in a 2-yard reception. He finished the game with two catches for 6 yards and a touchdown.

Four receivers for one spot in Detroit?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Lions official team website believes four receivers will compete for one roster spot in camp this summer. Kevin Ogletree, Kris Durham, rookie T.J. Jones and second-year wideout Corey Fuller are considered "leading candidates" for the job. Ogletree and Durham lead the way in terms of experience but Fuller and Jones are younger and might have more explosiveness to contribute. 

Lions looking for No. 3 receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) The Lions have Ryan Broyles, Jeremy Ross and Kris Durham competing for the No. 3 job this season behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Broyles is returning from a torn Achilles tendon, his third straight season-ending leg injury, but he’s ahead of schedule in his rehab and took part in most spring workouts. He’s the same surehanded receiver the Lions drafted in the second round two years ago, though not as explosive. 

Ross is another slot receiver. He’s all but guaranteed a spot on the game-day roster because of his return ability, and is coming off of an impressive spring during which he saw extended action because of injuries.

Durham is the biggest and most accomplished option of this trio. He’s a red-zone threat at 6-feet-5, is coming off a career-high 38-catch season and has a good rapport with Matthew Stafford, his college roommate. 


Lions tender five players


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) The Lions tendered exclusive rights free agent offers to receiver Kris Durham, kick returner Jeremy Ross, linebacker Julian Stanford, cornerback Chris Greenwood and tight end Matt Veldman. Durham caught 38 passes for 490 yards and two touchdowns last season, while Ross averaged 29.3 yards on kickoff returns and 16.2 yards on punt returns.

Lions GM says they're bringing back two receivers


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said the team will re-sign exclusive rights free agents Jeremy Ross and Kris Durham, per ESPN. Both are receivers. 

Ross came on late in the year for the Lions and had five catches for 59 yards with a touchdown. Durham has been a bigger staple in the offense for two seasons; he had 38 catches for 490 yards and two touchdowns.


Jim Caldwell: 'Extremely important' to find No. 2 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) New coach Jim Caldwell called it "extremely important" for the Lions to find a receiver to play opposite Calvin Johnson.

“He’s one that’s going to draw a little extra attention, in terms of double coverage, like he’s always done,” Caldwell said. “And with that being the case, we have to find a way to make certain whoever’s on the other side that may be getting singled in some situations can do some damage against the defenders.

“I think that’s extremely important, so I think that’s something that, obviously, we’ve taken a good, hard look at and, one way or another, we’re going to come up with a guy that’s going to give us some balance in that area.”

Kris Durham is an exclusive-rights free agent who's expected to return, reports the Detroit Free Press, but the Lions don't view him as a No. 2 receiver.


Lions could hang on to Kris Durham


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Wideout Kris Durham is scheduled to be a restricted free agent this offseason. ESPN believes the Lions will tender him at his original draft pick level, which means he'd make a smidge over $1.3 million in 2014. If that's the case then in the event another team made a play for his services the Lions would receive a fourth-round pick as compensation.

Durham had 38 catches for 490 yards and two touchdowns last season, serving on special teams in addition to working on offense. 


Lions expected to add at least two receivers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) "Tenuously thin" at wideout, the Lions are expected to add at least two receivers this offseason, reports MLive.com. One of those will be expected to start opposite Calvin Johnson.

"I'd like big and fast," new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi told the website when asked if he preferred size or speed in a No. 2 receiver. "But listen, if I was going to give a stock answer, I know what Calvin can do, how he can stretch the field, what his strengths are. I don't really know what his weaknesses are right now, but I'm sure, maybe there's something. So, you would say, 'Well, someone to work underneath?' You know, that would be an easy answer."

Kris Durham ended up as the No. 2 wideout most of last season, producing 490 receiving yards. The Lions clearly need "a more dynamic player" in that role, the report said.

Receiver Nate Burleson has said he'll take a pay cut to return, but there's no guarantee the sides will agree on a deal, according to the report.


Lions need major upgrade at receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Lions wideouts not named Calvin Johnson were a big disappointment in 2013, underlining the team's need to upgrade at the position, according to MLive.com.

Nate Burleson made a splash after returning from his broken forearm, then faded badly, catching 13 passes over the final five games. Ryan Broyles tore his Achilles tendon and finished the season with eight catches. Kris Durham played more snaps than any Detroit receiver and "underwhelmed," catching 38 passes for 490 yards and two touchdowns while dropping 10 throws.

Burleson, set to earn $5.5 million in 2014, likely will be asked to take a big pay cut.


Lions get minor contributions in Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Lions received minor contributions from a few role players during Sunday's loss to the Giants in Week 16. Kevin Ogletree caught two passes for 29 yards and Kris Durham caught two passes for 14 yards. In the running game, Jeremy Ross took an endaround for a gain of 16 yards in a 23-20 overtime defeat. 

Lions get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) A few Lions made small offensive contributions Week 15. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew caught both his targets for 23 yards, running back Theo Riddick had a 6-yard catch, and receiver Kris Durham caught a 5-yard pass. Durham was targeted four times, twice in the end zone.

They'll all face the Giants in Week 16. 


Kris Durham nets 68 yards, hurts himself in fourth quarter


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Lions receiver Kris Durham caught three of seven targets sent his way from quarterback Matthew Stafford for 68 yards to aid in the team's 40-10 Thanksgiving Day win over the Packers. However he seemed to have hurt his left shoulder on his biggest catch of the game, a 32-yard reception in the fourth quarter to help extend a late drive. Kevin Ogletree saw more playing time after the injury and caught a touchdown. 

It remains to be seen if Durham will be available to play at Philadelphia in Week 14. 


Two Lions play small roles in defeat to Buccaneers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Lions wide receiver Kris Durham and running back Joique Bell made minor contributions to the loss to Sunday against visiting Tampa Bay. Durham caught three passes for 46 yards while Bell added 15 yards on six carries and a reception that went nowhere.

Lions backup wide receivers struggle against Pittsburgh


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Lions backup wideouts Kris Durham and Jeremy Ross struggled to get going against the Steelers Week 11.

Durham made the most impact, catching three passes for 42 yards. He was targeted nine times, putting him behind only Calvin Johnson. Matthew Stafford completed only three passes during the second half, which dragged down Durham's overall line.

Ross was much less of a threat, catching one pass for 19 yards. He received three targets. They'll take on the Bucs Week 12.


Kris Durham scores second TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Lions wide receiver Kris Durham found the end zone again during Sunday's win over the Bears in Week 10.

On the second series of the day, Matthew Stafford found Durham on a slant for a 5-yard touchdown. It was his only catch of the day as he finished with just five receiving yards in a 21-19 victory.

Durham has 213 receiving yards and two touchdowns over his last five games played. He'll look to stay in the end zone against the Steelers in Week 11.

Kris Durham aiming for second TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2013) Lions wide receiver Kris Durham will be searching for his second touchdown of the season heading into Week 10 against the Bears in Chicago.

The last time the Lions faced the Bears, Durham led the club in receiving in Week 4. Before that game, he was an afterthought in the offense. Now he's a consistent contributor in Detroit's passing game. He's been targeted at least eight times in three of his past four games played. He's averaging 52 yards per game over that span.

That said, Durham hasn't found the end zone since Week 5. After allowing five touchdowns to wide receivers in the first four weeks of the season, the Bears have allowed only two over the past four weeks. Opposing receivers have scored 20.00 Fantasy points per game against the Bears this season.

Our Fantasy experts have him ranked just inside the Top 45. Consider him a sneaky low-end option, especially for owners seeking a bye-week replacement for Week 10.

Kris Durham makes big reception


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Lions wide receiver Kris Durham probably made the play of the game Sunday during the Week 8 home win over Dallas. Durham hauled in a big reception to get the Lions into scoring position for the game-winning score. 

Durham caught four passes from quarterback Matthew Stafford in the game. He went for 54 yards and did not score. Durham had six targets. The Lions have a bye Week 9 and return Week 10 at Chicago. 


Kris Durham won't wow Week 8


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2013) Lions wideout Kris Durham has been a steady contributor for Matthew Stafford and company this season. Heading into Week 8 at home against Dallas, however, we're not sure he's a major Fantasy option.

Durham has 13 catches in his last two games for 124 yards and has one TD catch this season. That was back in Week 5 at Green Bay. He doesn't have any 100-yard games, either.

The Cowboys have not given up 100 yards to a wide receiver since the first game of the season. If any Detroit WR is going to have a big game, it will be Calvin Johnson. Durham is really just a flex option in deeper Fantasy leagues for Sunday's game. He doesn't carry wide Fantasy appeal.
