Lions | Mikel Leshoure excited about a fresh start
Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure is hopeful the offseason coaching changes will provide new opportunities in 2014. Leshoure was a healthy scratch 13 times in 2013, after leading the Lions in rushing the prior season. Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi comes from a New Orleans Saints offense that rotated their running backs frequently, which Leshoure noted has him optimistic about his chance to earn playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Just because Leshoure was a healthy scratch 13 times in 2013, doesn't mean the new coaching regime will handle him the same way. Reggie Bush is a perennial injury risk and Joique Bell is already dealing with a knee injury, so Leshoure's path to playing time could be less obstructed than it may appear.
