Mikel Leshoure injury: Limited practice, fantasy owners must take notice

Al Messerschmidt

Detroit's starting running back is not a full go on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure (calf) was limited in Wednesday practice. Leshoure has been limited various times throughout the season but has not missed a game since returning from suspension to start the year.

The Lions starting back has scored a touchdown in four of the last five games. He has 185 carries for 695 yards and eight touchdowns. Detroit takes on the Falcons in Week 16.

Fantasy Take: There should be no danger of Leshoure missing this Saturday's game against Atlanta. With the Falcons ranked 24th against the run, 30th in yards per carry against, and 26th most rushing touchdowns allowed, Leshoure ranks as a high-end RB2 this week.
