UPDATE: The Lions have downgraded Ty Johnson to OUT with the concussion. JD McKissic and Paul Perkins are splitting work. Each has five rushing attempts, and McKissic has three reception for seven yards on three targets. Neither is a good fantasy option if Johnson misses time.

Lions running back Tyler Johnson is currently under evaluation for a concussion. Johnson had five carries for 19 yards and one reception for three yards before he left. The Lions have J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins backing him up.

McKissic has taken the lead so far with three rushing attempts for 19 yards and three receptions for seven yards as they near halftime. If Johnson misses any time, McKissic would be the back to pick up this week, but given the state of the Lions offense, it’s hard to get too excited about him. His best value would be in PPR leagues.
