Fantasy Analysis
The Lions’ decision to sign speedy dual-threat Reggie Bush unceremoniously ended Leshoure’s stint as the team’s No. 1 tailback after just 14 games, but he wasn’t a failure as a lead runner. Would you believe Leshoure wrapped up 2012 as a top-20 fantasy running back in standard-scoring and PPR-scoring formats? It’s true. He averaged 17.8 total touches and 72.3 total yards per contest to go along with nine rushing touchdowns scored. However, the 6-foot, 233-pound bruiser lacked big-play ability, which helps explain his demotion. Leshoure averaged just 3.7 yards per carry, and the third-year pro’s longest run in 215 carries was only 16 yards. By the way, Leshoure was coming off an Achilles’ tendon injury that forced him to miss his entire 2011 rookie season. Since Detroit won’t pound Bush between the tackles 20-something times per game, Leshoure should receive a decent share of first- and second-down carries along with most of the goal-line touches, but he will continue to be a non-factor in the passing game. Leshoure has decent No. 3 fantasy running back value at best.

Rushing: 325 Yards, 2 TD.
Receiving: 27 Receptions, 225 Yards, 2 TD.
