The Detroit Lions announced Week 15 inactives and Josh Reynolds is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Reynolds was listed as questionable this week due to a thigh injury. He was limited throughout the week, although his status for Wednesday’s practice was unknown.

As expected, Reynolds is taking the field after two limited sessions. He normally wouldn’t draw much attention in fantasy formats but the Lions are banged up offensively. D’Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams and T.J. Hockeson are all out, which vaults Reynolds into a territory of fantasy relevance. The wide receiver has 10 receptions in the last three contests, putting up 191 yards and a touchdown. His previous familiarity with Jared Goff does give Reynolds an edge over other Lions pass catchers. The wide receiver has some value as a flex play and could benefit greatly from increased volume and the potential game script in this contest.
