Mikel Leshoure plans to be 'more involved' in offense

NFL.com - [Full Article]

"I can't tell you (what my role will be) during OTAs, but it looks like I'll be involved a little more than last year so far," Lions RB Mikel Leshoure told MLive this week. "As far as the role, I don't know. That could change weekly. But I think I'll be more involved."

If Leshoure can outshine second-year runner Theo Riddick, he's a solid candidate to see a role similar to what Chris Ivory played before his trade to the New York Jets. If that doesn't happen, Leshoure's time in Detroit is likely up.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project Leshoure to carry the ball 31 times for 142 yards.
