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 Zach Zenner - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Green Bay Packers
Against Minnesota last week, Zach Zenner led Detroit with 45 yards on eight carries and caught two passes for 22 yards. He continues to share the backfield with LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick, with none of the RBs being very effective. The Vikings held the Lions ground attack to just 86 yards and things likely won’t be much better on the road Sunday. Zenner makes for only a desperation RB3/flex start.
