Mikel Leshoure rushed for 26 yards on 13 carries, and had 37 yards receiving on four receptions during Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Vikings. Though Leshoure was bottled up, Joique Bell was the only other running back to touch the ball with one carry for two yards. Bell did lead the Lions with six receptions for 72 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Leshoure at least proved that he can be a reliable option in the passing game in case the running game isn't working or has to be abandoned by the Lions. Though he didn't help fantasy owners much this week, Leshoure should be a good RB2/Flex prospect going forward. As for Bell, this now makes three straight games with at least 67 total yards. He has some fantasy value in deep PPR leagues, and could be a bye week Flex start in fantasy leagues. He isn't a goal-line option, however, making touchdowns tough to come by.
