Lions | Jahvid Best starting season on PUP list
Detroit Lions RB Jahvid Best (concussion) will begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list and miss at least the first six weeks of the season.
Fantasy Tip: With Best out at least six weeks, running back Kevin Smith will enter the season as the starter but is dealing with an ankle injury. Running back Mikel Leshoure will also miss the first two games because of a suspension but should receive carries upon his return. Owners should see Smith as a middle-round pick while Leshoure should be a middle- to late-round draft choice. Best will not be a factor until at least midway through the season but likely will play if activated. Owners should think about stashing Best on their roster instead of waiting for his return because he could be gone before his return.
