He added one reception for 11 yards.
Analysis: If it wasn't for a meaningless touchdown in the fourth quarter, this would have been another virtually worthless fantasy performance by Abdullah. His touches diminished later in the season, totaling 83 yards on 32 carries in the final five games, and it seems his chance to be the lead back in Detroit may be over.

Analysis: Detroit's starting running back for much of the season, Abdullah continues to lose snaps while mostly playing a secondary role in recent weeks. The 2015 second-round pick is averaging a pedestrian 31.3 yards from scrimmage over his last four games.

|Dec. 1, 2017 5:59 PM PT6:59 PM MT7:59 PM CT8:59 PM ET1:59 GMT9:59 6:59 PM MST8:59 PM EST7:59 PM CT5:59 UAE (+1)20:59 ETNaN:� - Abdullah is practicing in full this week after sitting out Sunday due to a neck injury. He has been activated to play Saturday against the Bears.
Analysis: Abdullah, Detroit's leading rusher, hasn't made a great impact even when healthy lately, as he's been held under 60 yards from scrimmage in each of the Lions' last seven games.
|Nov. 23, 2017 2:10 PM PT3:10 PM MT4:10 PM CT5:10 PM ET22:10 GMT6:10 3:10 PM MST5:10 PM EST4:10 PM CT2:10 UAE (+1)17:10 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 14 yards on six carries Thursday in the Detroit Lions' 30-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He added three receptions for 29 yards.
Analysis: Abdullah had another fumble in this one, though it was credited to Matt Stafford even though Abdullah was to blame on the exchange. His carries and yards were both season lows, and he was held under 2.5 yards per carry for the fourth time in five games. Abdullah didn't score for the first time in four weeks, and he's only useful fantasy-wise if he finds the end zone.
|Nov. 19, 2017 1:59 PM PT2:59 PM MT3:59 PM CT4:59 PM ET21:59 GMT5:59 2:59 PM MST4:59 PM EST3:59 PM CT1:59 UAE (+1)16:59 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 22 yards on 11 carries Sunday in the Detroit Lions' 27-24 win over the Chicago Bears. He added two receptions for 13 yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: Abdullah's TD reception saved his fantasy day. He isn't putting up huge yardage numbers, but he does have a touchdown in each of the past three games.
|Nov. 12, 2017 1:40 PM PT2:40 PM MT3:40 PM CT4:40 PM ET21:40 GMT5:40 2:40 PM MST4:40 PM EST3:40 PM CT1:40 UAE (+1)16:40 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 52 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries Sunday in the Detroit Lions' 38-24 win over the Cleveland Browns. He added one reception for three yards.
Analysis: Abdullah hasn't cracked the 60-yard mark in the last five games, but he's scored a TD in back-to-back contests.
|Nov. 6, 2017 8:08 PM PT9:08 PM MT10:08 PM CT11:08 PM ET4:08 GMT12:08 9:08 PM MST11:08 PM EST10:08 PM CT8:08 UAE23:08 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 48 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries Monday in the Detroit Lions' 30-17 win over the Green Bay Packers. He added one reception for nine yards and fumbled once.
Analysis: The touchdown was nice to see, but Adbullah still failed to top 54 rushing yards for a fourth straight game and fumbled twice, losing one. On the positive side, the struggling back could be in line for another high workload with the Lions certain to be heavy favorites at home against 0-8 Cleveland next week.

Analysis: This was a career high rushing day for Abdullah, who left the game with an undisclosed injury.
|Sep. 24, 2017 3:47 PM PT4:47 PM MT5:47 PM CT6:47 PM ET22:47 GMT6:47 3:47 PM MST5:47 PM EST5:47 PM CT2:47 UAE (+1)18:47 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 47 yards on 14 carries Sunday in the Detroit Lions' 30-26 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He added three receptions for 39 yards.
Analysis: After he had a career-high 86 yards last week against the Giants, Abdullah was much quieter against the Falcons. He had nearly as many carries but had only one run over 10 yards and wasn't able to grind out much yardage. Still looking for his first 100-yard effort, Abdullah isn't likely to end that drought next week against the Vikings.
|Sep. 18, 2017 8:18 PM PT9:18 PM MT10:18 PM CT11:18 PM ET3:18 GMT11:18 8:18 PM MST10:18 PM EST10:18 PM CT7:18 UAE (+1)23:18 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 86 yards on 17 carries Monday in the Detroit Lions' 24-10 win over the New York Giants.
Analysis: Abdullah had the best game of his career - at least by yardage - and fell just short of becoming the Lions' first 100-yard rusher since Reggie Bush in 2013. He likely would've reached that mark but he exited late in the fourth quarter with an apparent ankle injury. This was a welcome performance after Abdullah was limited to just 30 yards on 15 carries in the season opener.
|Sep. 10, 2017 4:07 PM PT5:07 PM MT6:07 PM CT7:07 PM ET23:07 GMT7:07 4:07 PM MST6:07 PM EST6:07 PM CT3:07 UAE (+1)19:07 ETNaN:� - Ameer Abdullah ran for 30 yards on 15 carries Sunday in the Detroit Lions' 35-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He added three receptions for 11 yards.
Analysis: Abdullah didn't have a gain of more than seven yards against a good Arizona defense, but his 18 touches are a good indicator that he'll maintain a prominent role in his third NFL season. Dwayne Washington does loom as a threat for goal-line work, so Abdullah's ceiling may be more as a low-end RB2 or flex player.
|Aug. 26, 2017 9:32 AM PT10:32 AM MT11:32 AM CT12:32 PM ET16:32 GMT0:32 9:32 AM MST11:32 AM EST11:32 AM CT20:32 UAE12:32 ETNaN:� - Abdullah had 60 yards rushing on 13 carries and three receptions for 39 yards on Friday night.
Analysis: In three preseason games, he has run for 78 yards on 18 attempts and caught five passes for 58 yards to provide the team with some hope after he was limited to two games last year because of a foot injury.
