The Detroit Lions will have several candidates in mind to complement RB Ameer Abdullah on the field. In contention for the second running back role are RB Stevan Ridley, RB Zach Zenner, and RB George Winn.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley's fantasy value goes up and down depending on the situation he is in. Zenner was explosive last year without getting hurt, and Winn is a local favorite much like Joique Bell (Wayne State) was for a couple seasons. Whoever gets this job could see some action, so monitor it closely.

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah and RB George Winn handled a lot of first-team carries in training camp Thursday, Aug. 6, and Abdullah looked strong and decisive with his cuts.
Fantasy Tip: Abdullah should split carries with Joique Bell in some fashion this year, with Abdullah likely playing more of a role in the passing game. He should make a solid RB3 with more upside in points-per-reception leagues.
