Kevin Smith RB DET Oct 16 '129 Comments

Kevin Smith is pessimistic about his chances of climbing the depth chart.

Smith was a healthy scratch in Week 6 as he's fallen behind Mikel Leshoure, Joique Bell and Keiland Williams. When asked what he can do to get back in the rotation, Smith said, "Probably nothing." Even with Jahvid Best (concussions) now done for the year, Smith will probably need an injury to garner any fantasy attention.

We can sure use him AZ. At least for this year.

Man I thought it was just me - This guy is probably there best all around back right now - he runs through holes and catches the ball well - The only question mark on Smith is and has always been can he stay healthy - There are at least 3 to 4 situations that would be great for him - Cincy/GB (although I like Alex Green)/Ari/Indy . . .heck even in Dallas depending on Murray's injury - point is he wouldn't be on waivers more than a day if the Lions released him - they may even be able to get a late round pick for him.

Lions are doing this crap cause they invested too much on Leshoure.. They have to play him, so they don't look stupid.. Smith is the best back on their roster!! If u have him, hold on to him, cause as soon as he's on another team, he's gonna blow up, cause all this time he's been off is actually helping him stay fresh!!

I don't understand why he gets no love in DET, he was solid as a starter for them.

he & chris ivory are way too good to be 4th stringers....release!

Trade him to GB for a 7th round pick, they really need a RB and Detroit don't need him. This would instantly make him fantasy relavent again...

TT picked up Johnny White from the BUF practice squad. The gives the Packers Green, Starks, White, Kuhn and in a pince Cobb. Marc Tyler, who was with the team during camp, is also available. I don't think Smith fits in GB, as much as I'd like my Packers to have him.
