DET RB Bo Scarbrough - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Green Bay Packers
With Kerryon Johnson returning from IR last Sunday at Denver, Bo Scarbrough received eight rushes for 34 yards, with 18 of those yards coming on one attempt. Johnson finished with two more carries and will likely see similar action in the finale. Without Scarbrough nor Johnson, the Lions were limited to just 56 rushing yards at Green Bay earlier this season. Expect a multi-back approach again, so Scarbrough is at most an RB3/flex option.

DET RB Bo Scarbrough - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Denver Broncos
After missing last week’s loss to Tampa Bay due to a rib injury, Bo Scarbrough is expected to be back on Sunday. However, it’s also likely Kerryon Johnson will return from IR as well, which could make for a crowded backfield. Be sure to monitor Johnson’s status, as he’ll definitely cut into Scarbrough’s playing time, if activated. Denver’s run defense has had its problems this season, but an RBBC approach by the Lions doesn’t bode well for any of the backs.

DET RB Bo Scarbrough - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Despite the Lions trailing the entire game at Minnesota last week, Bo Scarbrough still received 19 carries for 65 yards. In his four games with Detroit, he is averaging 18 rushes for 75 yards but hasn’t found the end zone in three straight. Kerryon Johnson is eligible to return from IR in Week 16 so this may be the last time you’re able to start Scarbrough, depending on Johnson’s status. While the Bucs are terrible against the pass, they lead the league in run defense, allowing less than 76 yards per game. Therefore, Scarbrough, who’s dealing with some sore ribs, is an RB2 play at home.

DET RB Bo Scarbrough - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Minnesota Vikings
In the Thanksgiving Day loss to Chicago, Bo Scarbrough again led his team on the ground, rushing for 83 yards on 21 carries. In his three starts since taking over as the Lions starting back, he’s averaged 18 attempts for 79 yards. Scarbrough will continue to be the workhorse but has a tough matchup on the road this week. Consider him an RB2 start.

DET RB Bo Scarbrough - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Chicago Bears
For the second straight game, Bo Scarbrough led the Lions ground attack, finishing with 18 carries for 98 yards last week at Washington. In what has been a rotating backfield since Kerryon Johnson succumbed to injury, it looks like Detroit has found their lead RB in Scarbrough. Outside of Jeff Driskel the Lions rushed for just 61 yards in the loss to the Bears three weeks ago and Chicago is No. 9 at stopping the run. Consider Scarbrough a low RB2 option on Thursday.

DET RB Bo Scarbrough - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Washington Redskins
Just called up from the practice squad last week, Bo Scarbrough had a solid debut for the Lions versus his former team in Dallas. In the loss, the bulky back led the team with 14 rushes for 55 yards and a score. After Kerryon Johnson was likely lost for the season, it’s been an RBBC for Detroit, with Ty Johnson, J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins all in the mix. Could Scarbrough, the seventh-round pick out of Alabama in ‘18, bring some stability and take over the reins for the rest of the ‘19? He’ll get the start and has a good matchup against a Washington defense that is the fifth-worst at stopping the run. If you’re low on RB options, Scarbrough could be a sneaky start.
