2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on May-28-2013 by Matt De Lima

Mikel Leshoure's fantasy production was anchored by nine touchdowns, eight of which came around the goal-line. It is safe to assume he will continue to see short-yardage work now that Detroit brought in RB Reggie Bush. Leshoure rushed for 798 yards on 215 carries. That works out to a 3.7 yards per carry average, which is less than ideal. Keep an eye on him on draft day. Leshoure's draft stock has fallen nearly a full round (8.01 to 8.11) in the last month and he would be a good value pick if he slips into the ninth round.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
13.11 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - After missing his entire rookie season, Leshoure finished his second season with 9 TDs but a less than impressive 3.7 YPC. The addition of Reggie Bush and presence of Joique Bell is concerning but with Bush's injury rish -- Leshoure has a solid chance of garnering a few starts for the high powered Lion attack.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
11.07 The Huddle - Still throwing darts at running back depth. Leshoure should see the goal line work in Detroit and gets the narrow nod over Vick Ballard.
