Hey all,

Just looking for thoughts on Leshoure. In my eyes....

Positives - Biggest back in Detroit. Offensive juggernaut in Detroit. Most "promise". Jahvid Best may never play again?

Negatives - 2 game suspension. Achilles issues. Hamstring issues? Kevin Smith. Pass 1st offense. Marijuana.

Wow, OK. I think I talked myself out of him! :) Got him on my team in a 6 team non PPR redraft league. Rosters are STACKED as you can see from sig so now thinking I might grab another back instead. I won't mention his name because I don't want to taint your opinions on Leshoure.

What say you all? Thoughts on Leshoure for this year?
QB - Mathew Stafford
RB - Doug Martin, Trent Richardson, Steven Jackson, Chris Ivory, Reggie Bush, Lamar Miller
WR - Dez Bryant, Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb, Dwayne Bowe, DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery
TE - Jimmy Graham
K - Phil Dawson
D/ST - Seahawks

I have to imagine in a 6 team league there is somebody better on the wire

I'm staying away, completely. The marijuana issue is an even bigger red flag than his injuries. The guy has already been nabbed multiple times now and a long suspension looms large at any moment. I can't feel comfortable taking him at any point in the draft except towards the very tail end. He has no track record to speak of except for lack of focus, injury issues and a love for marijuana. Although I think Best is also undraftable at this point, I'd steer clear of Leshoure. I'd take anyone on the Lions RB depth chart (Maurice Morris, Keiland Williams or Kevin Smith) before I took either Leshore or Best.

They gave Leshoure 2 games suspension. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8 ... mes-by-nfl

In a 6 team league, I can't see how he is rosterable. Sure, he is in a great situation, and if you want to hold him to see if you catch lightening in a bottle it could work. But your spot is probably better spent somewhere else.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
