Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure is currently believed to be the fourth tailback on the club behind RBs Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick heading into training camp and the preseason, but general manager Martin Mayhew expects Leshoure to compete for snaps. The team will use an offense similar to the New Orleans Saints, and they occasionally used a fourth tailback.
Fantasy Tip: Leshoure has tumbled down the depth chart due to a rash of his own injuries, and the production of others while he was off the field. He appears to be in the plans still, but ever so slightly. From a fantasy perspective, he should be avoided on draft day unless injuries to others dramatically alter things during training camp and the preseason.

Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure expects to have a bigger role in the offense than he did last season. Leshoure has altered his diet, arriving at camp leaner, which he feels has given him some extra pop.

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.
