Mikel Leshoure News & Advice

Mikel Leshoure looked great coming out of college, but his career has been derailed by injuries and brushes with the law. Bush isn't a threat to Leshoure's goal line production.
Solid, yet unspectacular a year ago. Insert Reggie Bush and Leshoure wont be close to a top 30 fantasy RB finish.
DET offense should provide plenty of goal line chances for Leshoure although the backfield is a bit more crowded.

Should prove to be closer to 100% this year and may get more touches than many expect in Lions backfield
If Bush goes down it becomes the Bell and LeShoure show again, but remember, that show was canceled.
I really like Mikel but now with Bush in town, LeShoure's value takes a big hit. But he should still be the goal line back and in this offense could carry him close to 10 TD's.
Inefficient, but carried sizeable role
