Zenner could still have a role on offense despite the return of a healthy Ameer Abdullah, Mike O'Hara of the Lions' official site reports. "I see consistent progress and improvement with [Zenner]," head coach Jim Caldwell said. "I don't think anybody has any question, if you watched him progress last year, that Zach can run the ball. But he's also a guy that's very talented in terms of being able to help us on special teams. He can run the ball. He can pass protect. He can catch the ball out of the backfield."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Zenner vaulted himself into the Lions' RB mix with an outstanding 2015 preseason performance as a rookie and stayed in the rotation through much of the subsequent regular season. He figures to move up in that mix in 2016, with a shot at getting more touches, particularly in short yardage situations, behind an improved offen-sive line.

2015

Zenner impressed during the preseason, leading the league with 183 rushing yards. With Joique Bell, Theo Riddick and fellow rookie Ameer Abdullah ahead of him on the depth chart, however, regular season carries will be hard to come by.
