Lions | Mikel Leshourse expected to compete

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:18:56 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure is currently believed to be the fourth tailback on the club behind RBs Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick heading into training camp and the preseason, but general manager Martin Mayhew expects Leshoure to compete for snaps. The team will use an offense similar to the New Orleans Saints, and they occasionally used a fourth tailback.

Fantasy Tip: Leshoure has tumbled down the depth chart due to a rash of his own injuries, and the production of others while he was off the field. He appears to be in the plans still, but ever so slightly. From a fantasy perspective, he should be avoided on draft day unless injuries to others dramatically alter things during training camp and the preseason.

Lions | Theo Riddick might break into rotation

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:18:06 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick has the chance to break into the rotation at tailback, and he has drawn considerable praise from his teammates and coaches for his development this offseason. If he proves himself in training camp and the preseason, he could potentially fill a Darren Sproles-like role in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick is a deep sleeper heading into the season. Remember, he had just 13 offensive touches last season, so he is raw. But he could very well win the No. 3 tailback job in Motown, and might have an even bigger role if Reggie Bush or Joique Bell go down ahead of him.

Lions | Teammate high on Theo Riddick

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 10:18:25 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick looked good during offseason workouts and could be a Pro Bowler if he continues to improve, according to RB Joique Bell. "The only thing I can say is he's going to keep learning and keep getting better. He keeps doing what he's been doing, he'll be a Pro Bowler in no time. I was thinking down the line, but he definitely has the potential to be a great running back in this league," Bell said.

Lions | Theo Riddick receives praise from teammate

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 12:11:06 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick could surprise some people this season, according to teammate QB Dan Orlovsky. Orlovsky said Riddick has "really, really good vision and suddenness," adding that he'd be surprised if Riddick doesn't get 50 catches.

Fantasy Tip: Orlovsky seems to have turned a blind eye to the rest of his team's backfield. RBs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell are the unquestioned No. 1 and No. 2 running backs for the Lions. Riddick may be a deeper option really, really deep leagues, but, barring an injury to Bush or Bell, he's not draftable in standard leagues.
