Agnew logged 10 tackles, 18 yards on two receptions, nine yards on two carries, 196 yards on 11 kick returns, and 447 yards with two touchdowns on 29 punt returns over 13 games in 2017.
Agnew, a fifth-rounder out of the University of San Diego, did a little bit of everything his rookie season but made his name as a return specialist, where he was ultimately named a first-team All-Pro. He led the league in punt return yards, punt return touchdowns and punt return average (15.4). He isn't in the fantasy conversation in IDP formats or otherwise yet, but that could change if he somehow carves out a larger role on either side of the ball.
Agnew (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday.
The rookie return specialist will take the field this week after missing the past three games due to a knee injury. Agnew has carved out a role on special teams and offense this season and leads the league with two return touchdowns. Look for the Lions to utilize the jack-of-all-trades weapon Saturday when they face the Bears.
Agnew (knee) is inactive for Sunday's contest against Tampa Bay.
Agnew was considered questionable for Sunday's game after being limited in practice throughout the week, but it appears as though he isn't fully recovered from his knee injury that's forced him to miss the past few weeks. Since he's just a depth secondary and special teams player, Agnew's absence shouldn't impact the Detroit defense greatly.
Agnew (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Agnew hasn't practiced since injuring his knee two weeks ago. However, ESPN's Michael Rothstein spotted the return specialist running on the sidelines during Wednesday's session, so Agnew seems to have a realistic chance of making it back for the Lions' Week 14 matchup with the Bucs. In the meantime, Detroit has Golden Tate and TJ Jones available to handle punt returns, with Ameer Abdullah and Dwayne Washington presumably handling kickoffs.
Agnew (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Vikings.
Agnew wasn't able to practice Tuesday or Wednesday, quashing his chances of playing on a short week after he injured his knee in Sunday's win over the Bears. With Agnew out of commission, it's expected that Ameer Abdullah will replace him on kick returns and TJ Jones and Golden Tate will fill in for him on punt returns.
