Lions rookie RB Jahvid Best is expected to play Thursday against the Patriots, but he is still a huge fantasy risk. Best has shown some true grit battling through his turf toe injury, but he has been a pain for fantasy owners wanting to believe in him. Best rushed just three times on Sunday at Dallas for two yards.
Lions RB Maurice Morris is an interesting play this week, as he figures to get the bulk of the carries. The Patriots have allowed the ninth-most points to running backs this season.
And hey, who doesn’t want to sit around on Thanksgiving Day and root for a member of the Lions?
