Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Leshoure emerged from the preseason without injury, meaning he is clearly a healthy scratch in Week 1. Consequently, a lackluster August from Leshoure has left Joique Bell as the primary backup to Reggie Bush to begin the season.
Leshoure was second in the unofficial depth chart posted on the Lions' official site.

2013

2012

The Lions selected Leshoure in the second round of the 2011 draft, but he tore his Achillesí tendon in training camp, ending his rookie season before it started. While Leshoure has had a full year to recover, itís about as serious an injury as a running back can have, so thereís hardly a guarantee he returns at 100 percent. Moreover, Jahvid Best is returning from a concussion, and Kevin Smith also re-signed during the offseason, so there are also multiple, albeit shaky, alternatives in Detroitís backfield. To make matters worse, Leshoure was suspended for two games for violating the NFLís substance abuse policy after being cited twice this offseason for marijuana possession. Nonetheless, the suspension will give him extra time to recover from his Achillesí injury, and when healthy, heís the teamís most physical, between-the-tackles back.

2011

The Lions selected Leshoure with 57th pick of the draft to complement Jahvid Best. At 6-0, 227, he was slated be the thunder to Best's lightning. Unfortunately, an August Achilles' injury completely derailed that plan. He's out for the year and will try to pick things up in 2012, assuming a strong recovery.
