Mikel Leshoure productive vs. Bears on Monday night: Fantasy implications

Jonathan Daniel

Mikel Leshoure had 63 yards rushing on 12 carries and 20 yards receiving off six receptions during the Lions' loss to the Bears on Monday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mikel Leshoure had 63 yards rushing on 12 carries and 20 yards receiving on six receptions as the Detroit Lions fell, 13-7, to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Leshoure was held out of the end zone, as the Lions' offense struggled to move the ball at all in the red zone.

Leshoure is averaging 49 yards rushing and just over 24 yards receiving per game in four outings since his season debut in Week 3. He has just one touchdown over that span.

Fantasy Impact: Leshoure was productive, especially in PPR leagues where his six catches helped make up for his lack of a touchdown. It certainly wasn't an awe-inspiring performance, but it served as further evidence that Leshoure is a consistent fantasy option well-suited for a Flex role in standard formats.

Next week's matchup against the Seattle Seahawks once again doesn't do Leshoure any favors. His involvement on the ground and through the air makes him viable if need be, however.
