While the Detroit Lions reached a five-year contract agreement with running back Jahvid Best -- the 30th overall pick -- late Friday night, they haven't signed their top choice, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

While not to get to GBRFLish, Since you traded him and a second round pick for a 33 year old receiver, it is hard to believe that YOU believed in him.

I've got to get something off my chest... I have seldom seen a player this overhyped, a player, mind you, who I think will end up having a very Reggie Bush-like career, that is, Jahvid Best: http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL& amp;id=5630. Injury notwithstanding, his freshman year with the Lions would have been considered a bust by, say, Darren McFadden standards. It is just funny to see how the pendulum swings in fantasy football "media". It rarely comes to rest in the middle,... where it more often than not should. I'm sure they'll get on the McFadden bandwagon heading into 2011, that is, after the fact, but, when it comes to projections, they are either for you and will overhype the hell out of you or they are against you and will thoroughly downplay your abilities. For now, they are almost ubiquitously on the Best bandwagon. We'll see in a year or two. Me, I see and have seen him for what he is, a flex running back on a fantasy roster and on the field a dynamic role player, whose fantasy value will be through the roof before it plummets into the basement.

Signing Smith is a good plan, as it seems Michael Leshoure has been arrested for the green stuff, Mary Jane.   Unbelievable.   Apparently, this is his second arrest in the last few months.  What an idiot!!!

Rarely do I get to comment (back) these days (though that is slowly but surely on the trajectory of changing), so I relish the opportunity...
 
With this breaking news about Leshoure and Best, it seems, a concussion away from having his career ended, Kevin Smith, who is still very young, is in a fantastic position to finally, really get his career on track and potentially, in this offense, IF he can stay healthy, EXPLODE!  And, IF he does, it could last for three to five seasons, again, given his age!  Fantasy footballers far and wide, keep this situation on your...

Nick Fairley's second arrest in two months is just the latest in a string of run-ins with the law by members of the Lions' 2011 draft class, which has seen three players arrested a total of five times.
