Lions' Zach Zenner: Gains 12 yards on lone carry in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner rushed once for 12 yards during Sunday's 34-22 loss to the Bears.

While most of Zenner's action came on special teams, he nonetheless made a mark on offense, considering the 12 yards he gained on a draw play marked the Lions' longest run of the game. However, it's unlikely Zenner's role will grow as long as Kerryon Johnson, LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick are healthy. As a result, the South Dakota State product is nowhere near the fantasy radar as Detroit enters a Week 11 home game against Carolina.

Lions' Zach Zenner: Rejoins Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner agreed to a deal with the Lions on Tuesday.

Zenner was waived from injured reserve by the Lions in September, but now seemingly fully healthy, rejoins his former squad. In three years with the Lions, Zenner rushed 119 times for 420 yards and five touchdowns. The 27-year-old won't likely see the field much, as he's expected to be buried on the depth chart behind Kerryon Johnson, LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick.

Lions' Zach Zenner: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner (back) has been ruled out of Thursday's preseason game versus the Browns, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

With a roster spot on the line, Zenner was knocked from the contest due to a back injury, finishing exhibition season with nine carries for 16 yards and one reception for 11 yards. Thursday's development may have been enough to determine his fate in his competition with Ameer Abdullah and Dwayne Washington (undisclosed).

Lions' Zach Zenner: Picks up back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner is questionable to return to Thursday's preseason game against the Browns due to a back injury, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Zenner is firmly on the roster bubble along with fellow Lions running backs Ameer Abdullah and Dwayne Washington (undisclosed). Through three exhibitions, Zenner boasted a dismal 17 yards on eight carries (2.1 per) and one 11-yard catch. Before picking up the injury Thursday, he didn't help his cause, taking one rush for minus-one yard and failing to haul in his only target. With perhaps one opening on the line, he'll play the waiting game until Saturday's 4:00 p.m. ET cut-down date.

Lions' Zach Zenner: Staying in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner is signing a contract to stay in Detroit, where he figures to compete for the No. 4 running back job, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Zenner has appeared in 28 games for the Lions since catching on as an undrafted free agent in 2015, taking 119 carries for 420 yards (3.5 YPC) and five touchdowns and catching 20 of 27 targets for 207 yards. He played more snaps on special teams (155) than offense (65) last season, and he'll likely have a similar role if he sticks on the roster for another year. The Lions are trying to add a veteran -- possibly Frank Gore -- to compete with Ameer Abdullah and Tion Green for carries. Zenner's special teams acumen may eventually give him the upper hand over Green or Abdullah in a battle for one of the final roster spots.
