Lions | Ameer Abdullah struggles in running game

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 17:07:26 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed for 14 yards on six carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also caught three passes for 29 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Abullah received a majority of the carries during the game but has to share the playing time with Theo Riddick. He will be facing a solid Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 13 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

Detroit Lions WRs Golden Tate and T.J. Jones are set to handle punt returns against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, Nov. 23, and RB Ameer Abdullah could be used on kickoffs. CB Jamal Agnew (knee), the team's regular return man, has been ruled out due to a knee injury.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah stuck in neutral

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:34:16 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 11 times for 22 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah was able to salvage the stat line with two grabs for 13 yards and a touchdown, however. He remains more of an RB3 or flex fantasy option at this point, especially with a difficult matchup against the Vikings looming on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah runs for 52 yards

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:55:27 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Ameer Abdullah racked up 52 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns and he added three yards on one reception.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah found the end zone for the second consecutive game and he is averaging 50.0 rushing yards per game during the span. He remains more of a RB3 or flex play in standard fantasy leagues and a low-end RB2 or flex option in PPR.

Lions | Short yardage a problem for Detroit

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 21:27:42 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah said everyone is to blame for the offense's struggles running the ball near the goal line, and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter said it's "tiny details" that are stopping Detroit from scoring touchdowns in those situations.

Fantasy Tip: Abdullah has been leading a lackluster Detroit running game all year, but after a couple of fumbles last week, it wouldn't be a shock to see him lose a few touches. He is a flex candidate against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah finds end zone Monday night

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 21:19:37 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah registered a season-high 21 rush attempts for 48 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 9 victory Monday, Nov. 6, against the Green Bay Packers. In addition, he had one reception for nine yards, but Abdullah also fumbled the ball twice in the game, with the Packers recovering one of them.

Fantasy Tip: There was some good and bad to this performance from the 24-year-old. The good, of course, is that he found the end zone for the second time this season, while also reaching 20 carries in a game for the second time as well. The bad, though, might outweigh that, as both of Abdullah's fumbles occurred deep in Green Bay territory, and following the second one at the one-yard line (which Detroit recovered), he received exactly zero rushes the rest of the way. Owners need to monitor this situation as a result.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah hoping for more red zone work

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 09:15:56 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah recently told reporters while he has no plans to ask Otis for a bigger role in the red zone, he is more than willing to help the team improve on its last-place ranking in short-yardage conversions (33.3 percent conversion rate on third- and fourth-and-1, far below the NFL average of 66.5 percent).

Fantasy Tip: The Lions have somewhat followed through on giving Abdullah more work this season, but he has no carries on third down this season and only eight in the red zone. Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner have served as the primary short-yardage backs and head coach Jim Caldwell doesn't appear to be in any rush to change things up, putting a fair share of the blame on the offensive line for being unable to hold up in those situations. Until that changes, Abdullah will likely remain a RB3 in fantasy.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah does nothing

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 20:52:18 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 11 times for just 27 yards in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while adding three grabs for 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions continue their search for a 100-yard rusher in a single game, now going on four years since Reggie Bush accomplished the feat on Thanksgiving 2013. Abdullah will regroup and try to hit the mark in Week 9 on the road against the Packers on Monday Night Football. Ironically, that's the last team to give up 100 yards to a Lions rusher.

Lions | Ameer Abdullah rushes for 54 yards

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:52:35 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah rushed 14 times for 54 yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints. He was also targeted twice in the pass game but did not have any catches.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions continue to search for that elusive 100-yard rushing game, but it hasn't happened in four years since Reggie Bush accomplished the feat last in 2013. It won't happen again in Week 7, either, as the team is on its bye.
