2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Another 2015 pre-season sensation, Zach Zenner played sparingly before suffering a severe chest injury that sent him to IR in Week 6. The South Dakota State product has off-the-charts athleticism, and should be in line to not only make the final roster, but carve out a role in the Lionsí backfield. Zenner may face some competition in camp from Stevan Ridley for the Lions short yardage role, but he possesses infinitely more upside than the plodding former Patriot and Jet. Abdullah is the primary ball carrier in this offense, but Zenner makes for a perfect roster stash if your league has the space. As the 3rd backfield option he has little value, but should he be thrust into a more prominent role, he has the game and elite physical tools to have a Charcandrick West type break-out.

Lions open to letting Zenner be every-down RB
Played 64 of 66 snaps in Week 17
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 5, 5:30 pm

Detroit Lions
Zach Zenner played 64 of a possible 66 snaps in Week 17 and was the only running back to see time on offense. He ran for a career-high 69 yards and had another 41 yards receiving. "Zennerís in phenomenal shape," OC Jim Bob Cooter said. "As the game wore on, kind of felt like he could keep going and felt like it made sense for us to do that, hopefully kind of adjusting to a stance (that backs can't play 70 snaps) I made earlier in the week. So obviously my lack of playing competitive NFL running back hurt me there from a knowledge base ... who knows what could happen in the future. Iíll keep it open-ended." (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: The absence of Ameer Abdullah for most of the season and Theo Riddick recently has forced the Lions' hand somewhat, but it shouldn't be all that surprising a back that rushed for over 2,000 yards three times at the FCS level may be able to handle the rigors of full-time duty. Zenner has a difficult matchup this weekend in Seattle, but he's among the top five RB plays on the board.


Injury Theo Riddick to sit, Zach Zenner to play Week 15
Dwayne Washington to get "lion's" share of carries versus Giants

The Detroit Lions held out a sliver of hope Theo Riddick could play against the New York Giants, listing him as doubtful on Friday's injury report. But his injured wrist didn't show enough improvement over the weekend and the starting running back has been scratched from the lineup for a second consecutive week. (Detroit News)

FFToday's Take: Running back Zach Zenner, who suffered a concussion during last weekend's win over the Bears, has cleared protocol and is active against the Giants. He's expected to back up rookie Dwayne Washington.

Theo Riddick is INACTIVE for the Lions. A lot of Washington and Zenner (Dave Birkett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Riddick was battling a wrist injury this week. Expect Zach Zenner and DeAndre Washington to handle the rushing load for the Lions. WR Golden Tate also gets a boost against the Bears.
