The Lions have named Darrell Bevell their OC. The run-heavy play-caller fits exactly what HC Matt Patricia wants his offense to do. Bevell has spent 12 seasons as an NFL OC -- 5 in Minnesota, 7 in Seattle -- and had 7 teams finish top 10 in rushing attempts and 7 finish top 10 in rushing yards. Only 3 of Bevell's units ranked inside the top half of the league in passing attempts or yards. His arrival is good news for Kerryon Johnson and troublesome for Matt Stafford, Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson has been placed on IR with the knee injury he suffered back in Week 11. It ends promising rookie season that saw him average 5.4 yards per carry and haul in 32 balls. We still don't have any details on Johnson's injury, but he should be fine for the offseason program. Zach Zenner, LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick will close out the year in Detroit's backfield. Zenner led the way with a 46% snap rate, 10 carries and 4 targets in last week's loss in Buffalo.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. The rookie has yet to practice since going down and has no timetable for return. Detroit’s backfield devolved into a 3-man committee last week with LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner. It’s a situation best avoided in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Injury Predictor

Johnson hurt his right shoulder late in his final Auburn season but returned for the SEC Championship game the following week. It's worth mentioning here because Johnson had the same shoulder repaired in January 2016. The Lions clearly weren't concerned when they traded up to draft Johnson in Round 2. He also lost a 2016 game to a right ankle sprain in 2016 and 2 more to a right hamstring injury in September 2017. Johnson might have trouble grabbing true primary work right away, but Lions coaches have said they see 3-down potential in him.
