Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure provided little help to the Lions and fantasy owners on Sunday. Leshoure had 13 carries for 43 yards and one reception for five yards as the Lions lost to the Minnesota Vikings 34-24.
Leshoure scored three touchdowns in Week 9, but failed to find the end zone against the Vikings.
Fantasy impact: Leshoure had three TDs last week, but it appears that is not going to become a trend. The Lions are never going to be a run-heavy team and Leshoure isn't going to be mistaken for a RB1 option; based on his numbers from Sunday he shouldn't be considered much of an RB2 option either.
Leshoure's best two games this season came against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans, two of the worst teams in the league against the run. Against the Vikings and other solid defenses he struggles to provide much fantasy value. Keep him on your bench against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
