Kerryon Johnson will miss Thursday's bout with the Bears due to a knee injury. While that could mean more touches for Blount, this is someone with 16 rushing yards on 21 carries over Detroit's last four games. He's going against the NFL's stingiest rushing defense, so his status hasn't changed as someone who will offer nothing unless he falls into the end zone on a 1-yard touchdown. Don't take that gamble.

LeGarrette Blount gains one yard on seven carries

LeGarrette Blount had seven carries and could only manage to produce one yard during the Lions 20-19 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Blount should not even see the field let alone get any carries at this point. However, with Kerryon Johnson leaving Sunday's game with a knee injury and the Lions playing in just four days on Thanksgiving, Blount may be the lead back against the Bears. Even if he gets double-digit carries, he will only have minimal fantasy value as you are just hoping he can score.
