Mikel LeShoure Injury Update: Fantasy running back set to go vs. Falcons

USA TODAY Sports

Mikel LeShoure (calf) looks to be ready to go against the Falcons.

Mikel LeShoure was limited in practice this week and he is listed as probable to face the Falcons on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: LeShoure's calf hasn't really been much of an issue all year and the Lions should be using him in a featured rusher. Joique Bell does see some touches on third down, but all the goal-line work should go to the Illinois product.

The Falcons rank 24th in the league against the rush and LeShoure might be able to make up for the 3.8 yard-per-carry average this season. The Lions really don't run the ball ranking 24th in the league in carries and leading the league by a mile in pass attempts. LeShoure is a high-end flex in standard leagues with some upside.
