Bo Scarbrough inactive for Lions in Week 15

The Lions are onto yet another starting running back with Bo Scarbrough sidelined in Week 15. We break down the fantasy football implications.

The Detroit Lions released their inactives for Week 15, and running back Bo Scarbrough is inactive due to his rib injury. He was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, but then sat out Thursday and Friday before getting the questionable tag.

The Lions promoted running back Wes Hills from their practice squad, but Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic are expected to get the bulk of the work. Johnson will likely be the lead back and McKissic will get passing down snaps. Neither is even a decent fantasy start against a stout Tampa Bay Buccaneers run defense.
