Whether or not Lions RB Kevin Smith is the starter now with Jahvid Best (concussion) out remains to be seen. (Best did return to the game-day sideline for the first time Sunday, which is a hopeful sign.) But Smith, who still could fill a third-down role — or more — even if Best returns to form, finished Sunday's game with 16 carries for 140 yards and four catches for 61 yards, as well as the career-best three touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: 

Maurice Morris will still be in the mix. We hate to pour cold water on Kevin Smith, but the injury prone back did his damage against the worst rushing defense in the league. He's certainly worth an add, but we wont be expecting a huge game against the Packers on Thanksgiving.
