Lions | Jahvid Best likely to start season on PUP list

Detroit Lions RB Jahvid Best (concussion) is expected to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would sideline him for the first six games.

Fantasy Tip: Best is nothing more than a bench flier in fantasy drafts, with the promise being greater in PPRs. This opens the door for Kevin Smith to handle most of Detroit's workload, with Mikel Leshoure (hamstring) being the main complement. Smith has justified draft value as a weak RB3 and a strong RB4; his injury history clouds him, but he could be quite a productive member of this offense. Leshoure is a decent fantasy depth grab as a potential touchdown vulture.
