I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University where I studied Sports Journalism. Naturally I grew up an MSU and Detroit sports fan. Football and hockey are my two favorite sports, but I also enjoy college basketball. My dream is to do play-by-play for football. Originally from the small town of Morrice, MI and now residing in Grand Rapids.

Lions halfback Ameer Abdullah showed flashes of potential during his rookie season that included a 24-yard touchdown run on his first career carry, but a poor offensive line and issues fumbling limited Abdullah’s fantasy impact in 2015.

The former Nebraska back rushed for 597 yards and two touchdowns and totaled 183 yards receiving on 25 receptions. Detroit spent the off-season trying to improve its offensive line by drafting Ohio State tackle Taylor Decker with their 1st round pick as well as signing former Giants guard Geoff Schwartz in free agency. If the Lions can at least be middle of the pack in rushing (last in the league in 2015), then Abdullah could be a valuable pick-up for your fantasy backfield.
