RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Zach Zenner.

2017

After the Lions lost Ameer Abdullah to a season-ending foot injury in the second game of the season, they then spent the next several weeks auditioning a slew of running backs for their vacant lead-back role. After trying and failing with rookie Dwayne Washington and veteran Justin Forsett, Detroit ultimately turned to Zenner, who finished the year as the team's workhorse. Nonetheless, Abdullah has recovered in full and enters the 2017 campaign as the team's stated starter at running back, leaving Zenner at least an injury away from gaining fantasy relevance.

2016

Zenner vaulted himself into the Lions' RB mix with an outstanding 2015 preseason performance as a rookie and stayed in the rotation through much of the subsequent regular season. He figures to move up in that mix in 2016, with a shot at getting more touches, particularly in short yardage situations, behind an improved offen-sive line.

2015

Zenner impressed during the preseason, leading the league with 183 rushing yards. With Joique Bell, Theo Riddick and fellow rookie Ameer Abdullah ahead of him on the depth chart, however, regular season carries will be hard to come by.
