Nine carries in season finale
RBDetroit Lions
December 30, 2019
Scarbrough rushed nine times for 42 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers.
ANALYSIS
The Lions again had a healthy Kerryon Johnson lead the backfield in both snaps and rushing attempts while Scarbrough and rookie Ty Johnson finished second and third in both categories, respectively. While Scarbrough once again was effective with the touches he was given, he didn't reach the end zone, and that's probably something he'll need to do to be fantasy relevant as a complementary running back. It's thus hard to get too excited about his prospects in 2020 with the talented Kerryon Johnson set to continue as the lead runner. In fact, the Detroit backfield might be one to generally avoid altogether if reports out of training camp suggest the big-bodied Scarbrough is preparing for usage as the team's preferred option around the goal line.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Injuries prevented Scarbrough from tapping into his potential in college and caused him to fall all the way to the seventh round of the 2018 draft, but his size (6-2, 228) and elite athleticism could make him an effective backup to Ezekiel Elliott if the rookie is able to stay on the field. There's some Derrick Henry-like upside here if Scarbrough somehow lands a significant carry count. However, that's unlikely on a roster where Elliott commands nearly 90 percent of the backfield snaps and fellow reserve Rod Smith fared well in Elliott's absence last season.
