The Lions are expecting RB Jahvid Best (concussions) to be cleared for contact in time for OTAs in June. Best has been participating in the team's offseason workout program, although that doesn't involve any hitting. “He’s been doing everything in the offseason program and we expect he’ll be cleared sometime probably in June,” GM Martin Mayhew said. “We are not doing anything that involves any contact and he’s been cleared to do everything that we’re doing right now and he’ll be officially cleared for contact in June.” It's been smooth sailing for Best this offseason, and he remains in line to enter Week 1 as Detroit's lead back. There's significant upside here, especially in PPR leagues. But Best's concussion history also makes him one of the riskiest picks in fantasy football.
