RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Felton will start at fullback clearing a path for Adrian Peterson through opposing defenses.
Felton is the leading candidate to start at fullback. However, he could face league discipline for a second DWI arrest in June.
The Lions don't use Felton much in either the running or passing game. He'll be used to clear holes for Detroit's running backs and to give quarterback Matthew Stafford extra protection.
The Lions didn't use Felton much in the ground game - even around the goal line - last year and that trend figures to continue in the second year under offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. The veteran is used sporadically in the passing game, but he's primarily a blocker.
Felton is expected to start at fullback, but there will be some competition during training camp for the spot. Whoever lands the job won't see very many carries.
