Reports this afternoon now list Johnson as out for Week 12, which isn't a surprise considering it's a short week. Johnson has 103 carries for 554 yards and two touchdowns along with 30 catches for 203 yards and a touchdown. Prior to the injury, Johnson had 15 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown along with two catches for 10 yards against the Panthers. Riddick and Blount will most likely handle a majority of the RB duties in Week 12. He may have a chance to play in Week 13.
DET RB LeGarrette Blount - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Green Bay Packers
Against Minnesota last Sunday LeGarrette Blount led the Lions with 11 carries but for only 29 yards. He came in to the contest with a sore calf and didn’t do much to help an offense that generated just 223 yards in the loss. In the past three contests, Blount has run for a total of 71 yards and hasn’t found the end zone in four straight. In the first meeting with Green Bay this season Blount received 12 carries for only 22 yards but scored twice. There are likely better options for you to start this week.
