There is a chance that Abdullah gets cut, since it seems the Lions can't keep both Abdullah and Blount. Ameer isn't the favorite to win the job, but the battle also isn't set, so while he may be cut, he may also find a way into substantial touches should Kerryon disappoint early on.

Ameer Abdullah in good shape, showing burst

NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero broke down the 2018 expectations for the Detroit Lions backfield and said that "I've been told that Abdullah showed up here in really good shape, they've seen a little bit of that burst he had two years ago." Pellissero also mentioned that Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount will have roles and that "the expectation is that Theo Riddick will still be the guy on third downs."

Fantasy Impact

This doesn't leave a lot of touches for Abdullah, burst or not. The former second-rounder wowed with some highlight reel preseason runs as a rookie but hasn't been able to stay healthy or have much of an impact in three NFL seasons. It might be best for all parties for Abdullah to wind up playing for another team in 2018, which certainly wouldn't hurt his fading fantasy value.
