Lions' Zach Zenner: Impressive in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner rushed 12 times for 54 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

While he wasn't targeted in the passing game, Zenner was easily Detroit's most effective option in the run game. He ultimately gained nearly 20 more yards than LeGarrette Blount despite seeing the same number of carries. Zenner caught 18 balls for 196 yards for the Lions in 2016, so he has the capability to contribute in the passing game if he continues to see this kind of playing time, but that opportunity may not come if Kerryon Johnson (knee) is able to return to the lineup this week.

Lions' Zach Zenner: Given one carry
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner recorded seven rushing yards on one carry during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams.

In Kerryon Johnson's (knee) continued absence, LeGarrette Blount (16 carries) and Theo Riddick (eight) once again dominated the available carries. It's clear the Lions don't view the South Dakota State product as anything more than a serviceable backup who will make his biggest impact on special teams.

Lions' Zach Zenner: Minimal role in Johnson's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner rushed twice for nine yards and secured his only target for a four-yard reception during Thursday's loss to the Bears.

There seemed to be a chance Zenner would have a significant role in the offense with Kerryon Johnson (knee) sidelined, but LeGarrette Blount ended up dominating the snaps on early downs. If Johnson is able to make it back for Week 13, Zenner stands to see an even lighter workload.

Lions' Zach Zenner: Could have role Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner could be part of a backfield committee Thursday against the Bears, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

With Kerryon Johnson (knee) set to miss at least one game, the Lions are left with Zenner, LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick in the backfield. Blount and Riddick are the safe bets to handle significant roles, though neither has offered much on the ground this season. Zenner owns a career average of just 3.6 yards per carry and has mostly played special teams since 2016.

Lions' Zach Zenner: No touches against Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zenner didn't touch the ball during Sunday's 20-19 win over the Panthers.

Zenner was contained to special teams in this one, but it's possible he could be needed on offense more often going forward if Kerryon Johnson's knee injury forces the rookie to miss time. However, Zenner still wouldn't be an advisable fantasy option in Week 12 against the Bears' stout defense.
