Lions | Mikel Leshoure to be involved

Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure, who will be coming off his two-game suspension in Week 3, will be heavily involved in the game plan against the Tennessee Titans, according to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. "We'll see how much he's ready to go in this game but he'll certainly be involved heavily in the game plan and we'll go from there," Linehan said. "We've always felt like he was going to be a big boost for us once he came back in the lineup."

Fantasy Tip: Kevin Smith hasn't lit the world on fire in the first two games, and Detroit will want to keep the injury-prone rusher as fresh as possible. Leshoure can help the team achieve this. It's risky to start him immediately in Week 3 due to concerns about his conditioning level. Eventually, Leshoure could be a decent No. 3 RB or flex play if he can stay healthy and prove he can handle the lion's share of totes.
