Zach Zenner re-signs with Lions

The Lions have re-signed Zach Zenner to a one-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

Zenner was receiving some interest from the Vikings earlier today but the Lions went ahead and held on to the 28-year-old. Zenner has always shown promise during the pre-season but has yet to translate that success to the games that count. He'll serve as depth behind Kerryon Johnson in Detroit.

Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports the Vikings are interested in running back Zach Zenner.

Fantasy Impact

Minnesota has a hole to fill with Latavius Murray set to leave for New Orleans. Zenner has always shined during the preseason but has yet to break out in the games that count. Dalvin Cook will be in for a big workload if all the Vikings do to replace Murray is bring in Zenner.

Zach Zenner had 21 carries for 93 yards and scored on a 13-yard run in the second quarter. Zenner also caught a 30-yard pass during the 31-0 win over the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Zenner finished the season strong helping fill in for Kerryon Johnson over the last four games. Zenner scored three rushing TDs over the last four weeks while gaining at least 45 yards on the ground in each game. With Johnson primed to be the feature back next season for the Lions, Zenner will either be in a backup role if he is still on the roster.
