Kevin Smith is expected to start at running back for the Lions this week, as confirmed by The Detroit News and DetroitLions.com. As fantasy owners, we're always looking for that edge especially when it comes to the fantasy playoffs. Smith might be one of those players that really surprises and puts you over the top. Oakland has been giving up chunks of yardage to opposition ground games. Do you think Kevin Smith can be a difference maker for fantasy teams in Week 15?
Ben Roethlisberger is still questionable for Monday night's game but he did put in a limited practice on Friday. It look like he will play but keep your eye on the fantasy news wire for the most up-to-date information. If he did start, it would make a big difference for all of the offensive skill position players for Pittsburgh. Will Ben Roethlisberger start Monday night?
Another injured player that can make a big difference for fantasy owners is Adrian Peterson. It looks 99 percent certain that he will start against the Saints on Sunday. This is great news for all of us that own AP and need him to put our team over the top in our fantasy playoffs. The Vikings might take it a bit easier with him but with his skill level, he is impossible to bench. I think we'll see a vintage Peterson performance this week. How do you think Adrian Peterson will perform in Week 15?
