Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Bills. With RB Alvin Kamara (knee) also out, Tony Jones is expected to operate as New Orleans' lead back. RB Dwayne Washington will be the #2.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is "doubtful" for tonight's game vs. the Bills, NFL Network reports. With RB Alvin Kamara (knee) already ruled out, New Orleans is down to RBs Tony Jones and Dwayne Washington. Jones is expected to operate as the lead back and is a volume-based RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Saints RBs Latavius Murray, Dwayne Washington and Mike Burton have been placed on the COVID list as close contacts of RB Alvin Kamara, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports. Those 3 guys are out for Sunday's game against the Panthers but will at least be eligible for the 1st round of the playoffs if they continue to test negative. New Orleans will use Ty Montgomery at RB and also promote Tony Jones from the practice squad, according to Glazer. The Saints will likely be forced to go pass-heavy in this one, but Montgomery has some RB3 and DFS appeal.

Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater will start this weekend's finale against the Panthers, HC Sean Payton said Friday. So QB Drew Brees will get the day off. We'd expect the same for RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram and WR Michael Thomas. Dwayne Washington figures to serve as New Orleans' lead back vs. Carolina, with Tre'Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr handling most of the WR duties. It's unclear how much WR Ted Ginn will play after returning last week.

The Lions on Saturday cut RB Dwayne Washington and placed RB Zach Zenner on IR for a back injury, according to MLive.com. That could mean RB Ameer Abdullah has secured a spot on the 53-man roster. We'll see once Detroit finalizes things later today.

Lions RB Dwayne Washington (hip) is out for this weekend’s game against the Bears. Zach Zenner should step in as Detroit’s #3 RB but isn’t a fantasy option.

Lions RB Dwayne Washington (quad) is out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. RB Zach Zenner figures to step into Washington’s minor role, so we’re not bumping up RB Ameer Abdullah’s Week 3 projection.

11:09am EDT 9/10/17

Lions RB Zach Zenner is inactive for today's opener against the Cardinals. He wasn't listed on the final injury report, so this looks like a healthy scratch. Zenner is behind Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington the depth chart and isn't worth rostering in redraft. We're curious to see who gets the goal-line carries for Detroit.

The Lions have signed RB Matt Asiata. A fantasy undertaker in Minnesota, Asiata vultured 19 total TDs over the past 4 seasons -- despite averaging just 3.5 yards per carry. He joins Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington in Detroit's backfield. Those final 2 and Asiata might be battling for 1 or 2 roster spots. We hope Asiata doesn't turn into a fantasy factor again.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. Green Bay. That leaves Zach Zenner as the likely lead back after he out-touched Dwayne Washington 14 to 8 last week.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) missed practice again on Friday and looks unlikely to play against the Cowboys on Monday night. That’d again leave lead-back duties to Dwayne Washington, who’s seen 33 touches over the past 2 weeks. He’s totaled just 114 scoreless yards, though, and is no better than a RB3.

11:32am EST 12/18/16

Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. RB Zach Zenner (concussion) is active and will serve as the #2 RB behind Dwayne Washington. Washington is a solid bet for 15+ touches but is just a RB3 or flex against a tough Giants defense.

The forecast for today's Lions-Giants game calls for a 65% chance of rain with winds of 10-20 mph. Not ideal. It's especially concerning for Lions QB Matt Stafford, who will be playing with an injured middle finger on his throwing hand. He's no better than a mid-range QB2 for Week 15.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) didn’t practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Giants. His absence will again leave Dwayne Washington as Detroit’s lead back. He tallied 17 touches last week and could be looking at similar volume on Sunday. A tough Giants defense leaves Washington as just a RB3, though. RB Zach Zenner (concussion) is questionable after a limited week of practice.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) missed practice again on Thursday. He's in serious danger of missing his 2nd straight game. Riddick's absence would leave Dwayne Washington as Detroit's lead back. He totaled 17 touches last Sunday.

Lions RB Zach Zenner was evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Bears. The team hasn't announced the result of those tests, but Zenner wasn't allowed to speak with the media afterward. That suggests he did indeed sustain a concussion, putting his Week 15 status in question. RB Theo Riddick missed the Bears game with a wrist injury, and his availability going forward remains unclear. RB Dwayne Washington could be in for another busy outing this coming weekend against the Giants.

Lions RB Dwayne Washington rushed for 64 yards on 16 attempts vs. Chicago. He added 1 catch for 10 yards on 2 targets. Washington saw an increased role with Theo Riddick (wrist) out. Backup Zach Zenner saw only 2 targets and 7 carries. We expect Riddick back for Week 15, but if not, Washington will have the look of a flex option vs. the Giants

11:37am EST 12/11/16

Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is a surprise inactive for today's game against the Bears. He was limited in practice this week, but there was no indication that he was in danger of missing this contest. Riddick's absence leaves the backfield to Dwayne Washington, Zach Zenner and the recently signed Joique Bell. Washington and Zenner figure to handle most of the work and are in the RB3 mix.
