| Let's make this quick. While young and athletic, neither Zenner or Dwayne Washington should be on your re-draft radar. Although each showed flashes at times last year, these guys are the RB3/4 on their own team at the moment, and baring a serious injury to either Abdullah or Riddick (which is a distinct possibility) they simply won't get enough meaningful touches to be rostered players. For what it's worth, I do feel that Zenner is the player with more upside, and the guy I'd go with if I was an Abdullah or Riddick owner who needed insurance. He was the Lions "workhorse" in the most important games at the end of the season, and delivered 21 and 17 point games in Weeks 16 and 17. He's entering his third season, and showing more polish after playing at South Dakota State. He's the guy the Lions would trust if they had to.

|Ameer Abdullah, who missed most of last year with a foot injury, is the team's starting running back, and Theo Riddick, who's still recovering from double-wrist surgery, has proven an effective role player. But Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington both showed promise in limited reps last year. (Detroit Free Press)|
FFToday's Take: Abudllah and Riddick are the clear front-runners in the Lions running back by committee. Both Zenner and Washington had increased value late last season with Abdullah on the shelf with a foot injury. Zenner showed promise in the passing game and would have sneaky PPR value should Abdullah and/or Riddick miss time in 2017.
