Player Outlook
The Lions selected Vaki in the fourth round of the NFL Draft from Utah, and the converted cornerback will add depth in Detroit's backfield. Vaki is not worth drafting in most redraft leagues, and he's a late-round flier at best in rookie-only drafts for Dynasty leagues. In 2023 at Utah, Vaki had 42 carries for 317 yards and two touchdowns and 11 catches for 203 yards. He could play a role on special teams as a return man, but he's unlikely to get many touches on offense if everyone is healthy. At best, you can add Vaki off waivers during the season.

  • Sione Vaki: Detroit adds in fourth round

    The Lions selected Vaki in the fourth round of 2024 NFL Draft, 132nd overall. Vaki (5-foot-11, 210 pounds) was a do-everything standout at Utah, where he thrived as both a safety and to a lesser extent at running back. Curiously, the Lions listed Vaki as a running back in the pick selection, but the presences of Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery would seemingly indicate that there is little or no playing time up for grabs at running back. It might make sense for Detroit to therefore use Vaki as a two-way player the exact same way Utah did and basically call upon him in whichever capacity the situation might call for. If Vaki can earn playing time, there's reason to think he can produce on either offense or defense, though in terms of the depth chart he is probably far away from meaningful playing time in the short term.
