Tion Green 2017 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

Meh. His first carry went for 33 yards, then he went 10 carries for 18 yards for the other 3 and a half quarters. Did a nice job getting to the outside and powering through Golden Tate on his TD though. I'm afraid he's just another tiny piece of the Lions rotating below average running back carousel. Blew a blocking assignment too. Believe me, I want him to be the answer but I feel as though this will be addressed in the off season, not as a week 12 practice squad gem. Hoping I am wrong.

More bruiser than finesse....slow forty time, but looked quick on his 33 yard gain and again on his td run....sleeper?

One thing I can say for sure way more patience than Dwayne Washington this guy waits and stutter steps and plows to get more yards

I keep looking for updated news but only thing is about how his mother predicted 3 weeks ago he'd play in the Baltimore game and score a TD turned out she was right....

He borderline is based on 40 time it's like a 4.7....but he looked quick on the 33 yard and td run so I am conflicted..

With Abdullah possibly in and Stafford possibly out, no reason to be conflicted: TGreen is a risky play, and the playoffs are not the place for risks... Bench him and watch him Sunday.

Good story and he looks like a half-way-decent RB.  Slow, but he has good vision and he's strong.  Problem is this team can't run the ball at all, and even if they could, he has Ameer and Theo in front of him, with Zenner and Washington in the mix as well.  Slim chance he does anything fantasy-relevant.

No targets, no catches. TD or bust player with a very low floor.
