I’m not sure if Kevin Smith is injured or simply not playing, but the rookie hasn’t see much work against San Francisco. In fact, Rudi Johnson appears to have taken over as the Lions’ featured back.
Johnson has 13 carries (to Smith’s three) for 74 yards, and he just scored on a 34-yard pass from Jon Kitna.
This is a situation fantasy owners need to watch.
If Johnson is a free agent in your league, you might want to add him now. The Lions have a bye in Week 5.
