Craig Reynolds placed on injured reserve

The Detroit Lions have placed RB Craig Reynolds on injured reserve, knocking him out for at least four weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Reynolds suffered a rub injury in Sunday's win over the Packers, and it will be serious enough for the team to put him on injured reserve. He will miss at least the next four weeks, and there's a chance his absence extends beyond that. Justin Jackson should have more opportunities as the RB3 for Detroit while Reynolds remains out.

Craig Reynolds registers 92 offensive yards in Week 5

Craig Reynolds carried the ball six times for 24 rushing yards while also catching all three of his targets for 68 receiving yards in the Lions' 29-0 Week 5 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Reynolds took advantage of a negative game script that eliminated the Lions run game, averaging 22.7 yards per reception out of the backfield for the team. The running back offers little consistent fantasy value when D'Andre Swift is healthy and is best left on waivers until further notice, especially with a daunting Week 7 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Craig Reynolds muted in loss to Falcons

Lions RB Craig Reynolds rushed 11 times for 29 yards while catching three of four targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 20-16 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

After signing with the team on Monday, there was hope the Lions had found something in their new RB. Reynolds managed to scrape together only 41 total yards on 14 touches in a very muted effort. With Jamaal Williams back, he took a back seat effort, and with D'Andre Swift potentially back next week, it's likely Reynolds doesn't touch the field. He is worth holding in case of Covid or an injury but is not worth starting moving forward.

Craig Reynolds signed to Lions 53 man roster

The Detroit Lions have signed running back Craig Reynolds from the practice squad to their 53 man roster through 2022, per Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus.

Fantasy Impact

Reynolds has filled in respectably for D'Andre Swift (shoulder sprain) and Jamaal Williams (COVID-19), amassing 216 total yards in two games. It's possible both backs ahead of Reynolds on the depth chart return for Week 16, but the Kutztown product more than deserves his spot as the number three back on this roster. Fantasy managers should hold onto Reynolds until the status of Detroit's running back room becomes clearer for Week 16, where they face the Falcons, who have proven to be a vulnerable run defense.

Craig Reynolds racks up 112 yards in win

Lions RB Craig Reynolds rushed 26 times for 112 yards while catching his only target for five yards during Sunday's 30-12 win over Arizona.

Fantasy Impact

With both D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams sidelined, Reynolds managed the backfield and looked sharp doing so. The veteran racked up 112 yards on 26 rushes on his way to a very productive afternoon. The Kutztown product now has 216 total yards over the past week and has quickly shown that the team might have made a mistake in cutting him in favor of Jefferson this fall. If both Swift and Williams are inactive this week, expect Reynolds to continue to be busy against the leagues 26th ranked rushing defense.
