Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to Dave Birkett. Leshoure emerged as Detroit's every-down back in a Week 3 loss to the Tennessee Titans, but appears to have suffered the consequence of such a heavy workload. He suffered a groin injury in the game, but the feeling is that he will play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Mikel Leshoure has become a top-20 fantasy football running back, but he needs to stay healthy to maintain that status. He plays a huge role in a high-octane offense and should be a weekly start if healthy. However, given his injury and tough matchup, you may want to look for a better option in Week 4.
