Mikel Leshoure was a full participant in Wednesday practice, good new for the Lions and for fantasy owners fresh off of a three-touchdown performance against the Jaguars. The Detroit running back came off of the field in Sunday's win over Jacksonville and did not return, but there appears to be no lingering issue for that injury.
Leshoure has run for 375 yards and four touchdowns in six games this season.
Fantasy Take: He's starting to rise as a high-end RB2 for the second half of the fantasy season after four straight solid performances. Despite the fact that he hadn't scored since Week 3 and that he's sharing the ball with Joique Bell, Leshoure is the clear-cut back to own for the Lions.
He has run for over 4 yards per game in four straight and has been featured in the run game where it matters most. The Vikings just allowed a big game to Marshawn Lynch and could possibly give up 80 yards and a score to Leshoure this week.
