2020 Fantasy Outlook
Agnew burst onto the scene in 2017 as a rookie who ultimately earned first-team All-Pro honors for his work as a punt returner. However, the San Diego product failed to carve out a role as a cornerback despite having plenty of opportunities to do so, and Detroit has accordingly moved him to wide receiver this offseason in an attempt to get more out of him. While there's no guarantee that he'll earn significant playing time at that position, either -- Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola have the three starting roles locked up -- Agnew's excellence on special teams should at least make him a lock for the final roster.

$Signed a four-year, $2.66 million contract with the Lions in May of 2017.
Gains 17 yards

October 19, 2020
Agnew caught both his targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 34-16 victory over the Jaguars.
ANALYSIS
Agnew didn't get a rushing attempt after logging one in each of the two games before the Lions' Week 5 bye. However, like Marvin Hall, Agnew at least remains a part of the game plan unlike Week 1 target monster Quintez Cephus. The return specialist will look to make a big play in Week 7 against a Falcons defense that is allowing the most yards per pass attempt (8.6) in 2020.
