As expected, Lions RB Jahvid Best has been placed on the PUP list. It knocks him out for the first 6 games of the year. And he's far from a lock to be activated after that. Best has yet to be cleared for contact, and no one seems to know if or when that will happen. We can't recommend avoiding him in fantasy drafts because he still possesses top-20 potential if he makes it on to the field. But Best is just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. And he may end up being a wasted pick. RB Kevin Smith will open the season as Detroit's lead back. RB Mikel Leshoure will mix in for early-down and short-yardage work after he serves his 2-game suspension.
