Lions’ HC Dan Campbell told reporters that rookie RB Jahmyr Gibbs will play vs. the Ravens and added this: “Certainly I think he’s going to need to take the load of (the work)….I’d like to say we’re going to be careful with him, but the reality is we need him.”
Dan Campbell has been pretty straight forward with his coach speak this year, which means we can't leave Gibbs out of lineups this weekend. Craig Reynolds can be considered an RB3 or FLEX play, as he may still garner the David Montgomery goal-line work.
DET RB Craig Reynolds - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
