Lions | Ameer Abdullah looks good at workout (Wed May 24, 05:03 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) accelerated through openings and changed direction without breaking stride during organized team activities Wednesday, May 24.

Our View: Good news for Abdullah here. He's coming back from a foot injury that limited him to two games in 2016. Abdullah is likely to be the Lions featured back this year, even though he'll be splitting time in the backfield with Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick. He's got a current ADP of RB27 (6.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Lions | Ameer Abdulla staying focused (Mon May 22, 02:19 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) said he's attacking this offseason with a more focused mindset and working as hard as he can to be the best player he can be. The third-year running back also hopes to leave his injury woes behind him. He's focused on the little things and the work he has to do to maintain his body for the NFL after suffering a season-ending foot injury in Week 2 last season.

Our View: Abdullah needs to stay healthy more than stay focused, but we get the drift of this article. He's a dynamic runner and very dangerous in the open field, but we've always felt Abdullah was better suited as a part-time running back. He sits atop the depth chart but will likely split time with Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner at the position.
