Depth Chart
Whether it was too much time in the trainer's room, or the tendency to freelance too much, the Lions tired of D'Andre Swift and dealt him to the Eagles for a mid-round pick. To replace his role in the offense, Detroit spent the 12th overall pick on the electric Gibbs from Alabama. The All-SEC back was a versatile dynamo with both the Tide and Georgia Tech. The 200-pound runner was widely considered the best receiving back in the class, and brings 4.3 speed with him. If off-season minicamps are any indication, Gibbs is going to be moved around the formation a ton, and coordinator Ben Johnson has proved to have a knack for creativity, and making the best use of his offensive talent. While his upside is capped by the presence of free agent addition David Montgomery, Gibbs should lead this backfield in touches. With a 50-catch floor, look for Detroit to get the ball into his hands at least 200 total times, and in a myriad of different ways. He's sure to lose most goal line scores, and might be limited by game script (Montgomery will likely be the closer), but Detroit didn't spend that kind of draft capital to sit the kid. He'll be a PPR machine, but has RB1 upside even in standard leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury David Montgomery likely to play Thursday night
Thigh injury sidelined him in Week 3

Detroit Lions
Lions coach Dan Campbell said he's "starting to feel pretty good about" RB David Montgomery (thigh) and LT Taylor Decker (ankle) returning to play Thursday night against the #Packers. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: The Lions made the prudent move in resting Montgomery in Week 3, especially knowing they had a division game coming up on a short week. While the Packers have been a favorable fantasy matchup for running backs through three games, they have been effective in slowing them down in two of them. Nevertheless, Montgomery remains a solid RB2 option if he plays on Thursday. Expect Jahmyr Gibbs to return to his Week 1 and Week 2 workload of about 7-8 carries and five or so receptions.
