    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick is expected to be released or traded this offseason, which would save the Lions more than $3.4 million, according to Spotrac.

    Huddle Up: Kerryon Johnson will be featured in his second season and LeGarrette Blount will be tasked with the short-yardage and goal-line duties. It makes sense for the Lions to cut ties, but Riddick will be wanted somewhere. He's a valuable pass-catching back with at least PPR flex upside.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 11:53am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (groin) suffered a groin injury during Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 30. His return is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Riddick had four rushes for 24 yards and no catches before the injury. Zack Zenner and LeGarrette Blount will pick up the RB slack if Riddick can't return.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 2:20pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed eight times for 47 yards and added nine yards on two catches against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Riddick had a pretty good matchup for receptions but wasn't involved enough to matter for hopeful PPR gamers. Against Minnesota, he isn't a fantasy-relevant option in championship week.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 8:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed six times for 28 yards in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added four grabs for 30 yards.

    Huddle Up: Riddick, Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount formed a three-headed monster in the backfield, filling in for the injured Kerryon Johnson. Riddick is only worth using as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in deeper PPR play.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 1:44pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick caught seven passes for 48 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 12. He also rushed for 12 yards on two carries.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has caught at least five passes in each of the last four games and probably will receive most of his touches in the passing game. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 7:22am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick has lined up in the slot 18 times since the team traded WR Golden Tate, which leads all running backs since Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has 13 grabs for 96 yards the last two games combined. He's a sneaky flex option in PPR against the Carolina Panthers this week.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 2:42pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick didn't have any carries but he had six grabs for 60 yards on seven targets in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Riddick is good for fantasy owners as a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues, especially when the Lions are playing from behind, which is fairly frequent. He has considerably less value in standard play. The Lions host the Panthers in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 1:32pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick posted a game-high seven receptions for 36 yards on eight targets in Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Riddick was busy as the team eschewed the run game for most of the second half playing catch-up, and Riddick was a big beneficiary on the short routes out of the backfield. He'll face another strong D next week, so the Lions might be playing catch-up again in Week 10 on the road against the Chicago Bears. Riddick is a decent low-end RB3 or flex play in PPR leagues, with less value in standard formats.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 2:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Riddick likely will be part of the passing game if he is active for Week 9. He could be a possible flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start fantasy option.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 1:13pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has missed the last few games because of the injury but may have a chance to play this week. He probably would be involved in the passing game if he is active for the game but would be a risky fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/26/2018 1:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 26, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Kerryon Johnson likely will have a bigger offensive role with Riddick out of the lineup. He has played very well over the last four games and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/25/2018 2:37pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Riddick likely will miss another game and should be avoided in all leagues. Kerryon Johnson should continue to receive a majority of work at running back and could be a No. 2 fantasy running back or flex option.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 9:10am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not practice for a third straight day Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has seen a total of 10 touches over his last three games and missed Week 6, so his absence shouldn't be that big of a deal. Kerryon Johnson should get see a bit more work in the passing game as a result.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 3:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's looking like Riddick will once again be out when the Lions take on the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday. If he doesn't play, that'll be five straight on the sidelines for the veteran tailback. Kerryon Johnson will continue to benefit in his absence.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 4:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: It's definitely a concern that straight out of the bye week, Riddick wasn't able to practice, but it could also be the team managing the veteran's reps. Obviously, his owners will have to be on top of his status throughout the week as a result of this development, but he's only a FLEX play in deep leagues anyway.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:42pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick caught four passes for 20 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. He also rushed for seven yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Riddick should continue to be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues when he is facing a favorable matchup but likely will be on the bench most weeks.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 4:30pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) suffered an ankle injury late in the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Riddick left injured and LeGarrette Blount was ejected, so Kerryon Johnson was the only healthy running back able to finish the game. The Lions host the Patriots in Week 3.

  • Posted: 8/21/2018 7:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 21.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Riddick is dealing with an injury or just needed a day off. He likely will continue to be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
