Lions | Kevin Smith sits out

Detroit Lions RB Kevin Smith (ankle) did not practice Monday, Aug. 27, due to an ankle sprain suffered in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: The injury does not sound serious, and the club could simply be playing it safe with RB Jahvid Best (concussion) to miss the early portion of the season on the PUP list. Smith will start in Week 1 against the St. Louis Rams, barring any setbacks, and he will be a decent low-end RB2 or 'flex' fantasy option in most formats.
