Report: Wes Hills getting Lions first team running back reps

NFL: Preseason-Los Angeles Chargers at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re looking for a last minute running back starter in Week 15 fantasy football playoff games, it would appear Detroit Lions running back Wes Hills might be worth a look. Hills is getting first team reps during running back drills, according to Lions beat writer Justin Rogers.

Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic looked like the best options with Bo Scarbrough sidelined with a rib injury. However, it would appear the Lions want to see what Hills can do in an otherwise lost season. The team knows what Johnson and McKissic are all about. They are solid backups, but don’t have much in the way of upside.

Hills might not have much side either, but he’s going to at least get a look this week. He’s such a last minute addition that you might not be able to add him in traditional or DFS fantasy, but keep an eye out.
