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 tender four free agents


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) The Lions have tendered the following exclusive rights free agents, according to the Detroit Free-Press: kick returner Jeremy Ross at $570,000, linebacker Julian Stanford at $570,000, cornerback Chris Greenwood at $570,000 and tight end Matt Veldman at $420,000.

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.


Jeremy Ross a bright spot for disappointing Lions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Lions receiver Jeremy Ross took over as the full-time returner for the final six weeks and became a dangerous threat, averaging 29.3 yards on kick returns. His 16.2-yard punt-return average was tops in the NFL among players with at least 15 returns.

“I think I’ve proved I can play at this level, at a high level,” Ross said, per the Detroit Free Press. "Not just play and be mediocre, but actually do some great things in this league, so I’m hoping people see that and hoping I get another opportunity next season.”

Ross returned a kickoff and punt for touchdowns at Philadelphia in Week 14.


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. 

Can Jeremy Ross carry Lions DST again?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) The Lions DST enters Week 15 vs. Baltimore as a middle-of-the-pack unit, and that's despite the Herculean efforts of return man Jeremy Ross.

Cut by the Packers in September, Ross returned a punt 58 yards and a kickoff 98 yards for touchdowns in the second half of last week's loss in Philly. That gave the Lions DST four touchdowns this season.

Ross also had a 44-yard kickoff return against Dallas, a 42-yard punt return vs. Tampa Bay and a 35-yard punt return against Green Bay on Thanksgiving. 

"As good as he's been, I think he can still get better," special teams coach John Bonamego told the team's website. "He has done a really good job of staying with the plan. He understands where the blocks are supposed to happen. He can see the field.

"He also has a dimension on power," Bonamego added. "He's a bigger guy and thicker through the legs. He's a determined runner. He doesn't go down easily. He can run through some arm tackles and is elusive enough to make that first guy miss and get it started."

Detroit has been decent defensively at home, with double-digit Fantasy points in four of six games. The Ravens give up the 14th-most Fantasy points (9.5 per game) to DSTs, but surrendered only 12 in the last two weeks combined. 

It all adds up to the Lions DST being a borderline play Monday night.


Jeremy Ross scores for the Lions


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Lions receiver Jeremy Ross worked as the team's fourth receiver against the Packers on Thanksgiving Day but put up some surprising numbers. Ross caught the team's first touchdown in a rout over the Packers, getting open on a 5-yard post route in the first quarter. It was his only target in the game. He added a 24-yard run later in the game. 

Ross and the Lions play at the Eagles in Week 14. 


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.


Jeremy Ross with two grabs in Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Lions wide receiver Jeremy Ross failed to make much of an impact during Sunday's win over the Bears in Week 10.

Ross caught an 11-yard pass in the third quarter and a 17-yard pass in the fourth quarter. He finished the game with two catches for 28 yards in a 21-19 victory.

Ross has been targeted three times in back-to-back games and has just three catches for 35 yards over that span. He'll try to get going in Week 11 against the Steelers.

Lions juggling options in the slot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2013) Without Ryan Broyles and Nate Burleson for Week 10 against the Bears, the Lions have some questions about their receiving options this Sunday. According to the MLive.com, Jeremy Ross is the leader to start in the slot this Sunday, after barely playing in three games since being promoted from the practice squad.

"Jeremy Ross has stepped in, has played fair, does a nice job for us," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "We know that he will be able to do some of those things for us."

The inexperienced Ross won't be the only player the Lions consider as an option in the slot, as they like to move players around the formation. Running back Reggie Bush and tight end Joseph Fauria are also considered options to slide to the slot in some sets.


Jeremy Ross catches a pass


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Lions wide receiver Jeremy Ross caught one pass for 7 yards during the Week 8 win over Dallas Sunday. Ross saw three targets come his way from quarterback Matthew Stafford in the game. 

The 25-year-old Ross has two receptions this season for the Lions for 15 yards and has yet to score. The Lions are on bye Week 9. 


Jeremy Ross added, Dorin Dickerson let go


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2013) The Lions have promoted wide receiver Jeremy Ross off the practice squad Saturday, MLive.com reports. To clear a roster spot, the Lions released tight end Dorin Dickerson

Ross was signed to the practice squad earlier this month after being released by Green Bay. Dickerson had signed with Detroit earlier in the week. 


Packers release Jeremy Ross


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2013) The Packers announced Monday they released wide receiver Jeremy Ross, who has played in just eight regular season games the last two years. He mostly played on special teams.

Ryan Taylor, Jeremy Ross barely contribute


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2013) The Packers got small contributions from tight end Ryan Taylor and wide receiver Jeremy Ross Week 3 at Cincinnati. Taylor caught two passes (on three targets) for 11 yards, and Ross caught one pass (on two targets) for 8 yards. Ross actually did more harm than good, though, fumbling a kickoff to give the Bengals the ball inside the 5-yard line early in the first quarter.

Aaron Rodgers says this is his deepest WR corps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) It's been a rough week for the Packers, who lost starting left tackle Bryan Bulaga for the season and top deep threat Jordy Nelson for at least the rest of training camp. But quarterback Aaron Rodgers told SiriusXM NFL Radio that Green Bay has plenty of receiver depth.

"I think this receiving corps is the deepest I’ve seen in nine years in a training camp," Rodgers said. "As a backup and third string, guys going in 2-3-4, it’s got to be exciting to know you’re going to be throwing to these kind of guys. Jarrett Boykin and Jeremy Ross have stepped up and been very solid in camp for us. And then we’ve got a number of guys who are fighting for one or two spots, probably. We’ve had a lot of guys who’ve stepped up."


Ross added to active roster


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2012) Green Bay signed running back DuJuan Harris and wide receiver Jeremy Ross to the active roster Saturday. They were on the practice squad. The Packers placed tight end Andrew Quarless (knee) and safety Sean Richardson (back) on injured reserve, ending their seasons in corresponding moves.
