Summary

Running Back Rank: #240All Players: #956
Best didn't play a down last season because of ongoing concussion issues. At this point, it looks like his career in the NFL is over, which is a shame because he only played a couple seasons in the league and showed promise. When playing, Best has top speed and does a great job of hitting the hole. Best sets up his blocks well, making a lot of big plays in both the rushing and passing game. He is a very good receiver, having 85 receptions in two seasons.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Unless he is surprisingly cleared to play once again, don't bother with Best on draft day. It is a shame to see his career end so soon.

comments about Jahvid Best

Notes

Former Detroit Lions RB Jahvid Best's civil lawsuit against the NFL and helmet makers Riddell and Easton-Bell Sports has been thrown out. The case against the league was dismissed on May 6 due to a non-service dismissal without prejudice. It means that Best likely didn't serve the defendants in a defined period of time. He can refile the suit, but it's unclear if he will.
