Tim Twentyman of the Lions' website expects Ameer Abdullah to get "every opportunity" to carry "most of the load" in the Detroit backfield.
Abdullah is still recovering from January shoulder surgery, but he's expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Even without seeing him this spring, Lions beat writers have been talking the sophomore up as a potential breakout candidate. Abdullah averaged a respectable 4.2 YPC as a rookie, but after the Week 9 bye and promotion of OC Jim Bob Cooter, Abdullah averaged 4.7 YPC to finish the year strong. Abdullah is currently being drafted as RB29 in MFL best-ball leagues. He's a strong mid-round flier with upside. Jun 23 - 9:52 AM
