  • Zenner rushed once for zero yards and failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 52-38 loss to the Saints. With the Lions down big from the get-go, Zenner saw minimal playing time on offense Sunday and was largely contained to special teams. Since he wasn't able to steal any touchdowns away from starter Ameer Abdullah, Zenner's fantasy value was predictably non-existent. Zenner's situation won't get any better if Dwayne Washington (quad) is able to return after the Lions' bye in Week 7. In fact, Zenner could revert back to being a regular game-day inactive if Washington is able to prove his nagging injury is behind him.

  • Lions' Zach Zenner: Vultures touchdown Week 5
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zenner rushed three times for 11 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Panthers. Zenner technically wasn't the Lions' preferred goal-line option Sunday, as starter Ameer Abdullah got the first crack to plunge one in near the goal line. After Abdullah failed to score, though, Zenner subbed in and got the job done. However, barring an injury to Abdullah, this is likely Zenner's upside on any given week as his fantasy value is near null when he's not vulturing touchdowns. Furthermore, Zenner could revert to inactive status once Dwayne Washington (quadriceps) is healthy.

  • Lions' Zach Zenner: Logs three carries in Week 3
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zenner rushed three times for five yards in Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Falcons. Operating as the No. 3 runner in the absence of Dwayne Washington (quadriceps), Zenner didn't do anything to suggest he might stick in that role upon Washington's return. His only fantasy potential rests in the random event he replaces Ameer Abdullah in goal-line situations and proceeds to vulture a touchdown or two. Since that didn't happen Sunday, he had almost zero utility. Because of this limiting situation, Zenner remains firmly off the fantasy radar in anything but the deepest of leagues.

  • Lions' Zach Zenner: Taking over as No. 3 back
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zenner's teammate Dwayne Washington (quadriceps) is expected to miss multiple games, the Detroit Free Press reports. Zenner will fill in as the No. 3 back, starting with Sunday's game against the Falcons. The role figures to include a portion of the early-down carries and goal-line work, but the Lions have a strong preference for their passing game even when they're close to the opponent's end zone. Zenner won't be of much interest unless Ameer Abdullah also suffers an injury.

  • Lions' Zach Zenner: Could be active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zenner is expected to be active for the first time this season Sunday against the Falcons, likely serving as the Lions' No. 3 running back, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Dwayne Washington (quadriceps) missed a second straight practice Thursday and seems unlikely to suit up Sunday, leaving Zenner in line to serve as the top understudy to Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. With 334 yards and four touchdowns on the ground last season, Zenner outperformed Washington from an offensive standpoint, but the latter's responsibilities as the Lions' kick returner has allowed him to rank ahead of Zenner on the depth chart in 2017. Zenner won't be in store for kick-return duties if he dresses Sunday, but more importantly from a fantasy perspective, he would inherit Washington's role as a power back, likely seeing most of his carries in short-yardage situations in the red zone.
