The Detroit Lions have declared CB Adairius Barnes, OT Corey Robinson, LB DeAndre Levy, RB Dwayne Washington, TE Eric Ebron, DL Haloti Ngata, RB Theo Riddick inactive for Week 7.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not practice Friday, Oct. 21, and he has been ruled out for Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: With Riddick out and Dwayne Washington questionable, Zach Zenner could be worth a flier in DFS formats if he ends up starting in Week 7.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 11:19:25 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 21.
Fantasy Tip: It's not looking good for Riddick, who is trending toward missing his second straight game. Zach Zenner, Dwayne Washington, and Justin Forsett will likely share backfield touches this week against the Washington Redskins, with game script likely to determine which one will be the best play in fantasy. Golden Tate enjoyed his best game of the season by far last week with Riddick and Eric Ebron out, and a similar scenario could play out again this week.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Riddick hasn't practiced yet this week and could be in danger of missing his second consecutive contest. If he has to sit out again, the Lions would likely go to a three-man committee of Justin Forsett, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington, making it very difficult to trust either of those options this weekend in any fantasy league.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Riddick was not able to play in Week 6 and likely will have to practice this week if he wants a chance to play in Week 7. Owners probably should consider other options for their lineups and not hope that Riddick plays.
Sun, 16 Oct 2016 08:44:35 -0700
The Detroit Lions have declared CB Adairius Barnes, LB DeAndre Levy, RB Dwayne Washington, TE Eric Ebron, DL Haloti Ngata, OG Larry Warford, RB Theo Riddick inactive for Week 6.
Fri, 14 Oct 2016 13:09:13 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Tip: With Dwayne Washington questionable due to foot and ankle sprains, newly signed Justin Forsett may have a bigger-than-expected role less than a week after joining the Lions. Forsett fits Riddick's role in this offense much better than Zach Zenner, so five to eight carries and three to five catches for the former Baltimore Raven should not be ruled out. That alone would put Forsett on the flex radar.
Fri, 14 Oct 2016 08:34:32 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) is out of practice Friday, Oct. 14.
Fantasy Tip: This certainly sheds doubt on his status for Week 6, but he could still suit up against the Los Angeles Rams. He'd have a decent matchup if he's able to play and isn't limited. Check his status before kickoff for a possible flex play.
Thu, 13 Oct 2016 09:55:08 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.
Fantasy Tip: Riddick could be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He should be a starting option if he is active, but owners will need other options available if he misses the game. Justin Forsett could receive solid playing time in Week 6 if Riddick is not able to play and could be a flex option.
Wed, 12 Oct 2016 17:26:37 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Riddick is in any danger of missing the team's Week 6 game, so owners should monitor the situation. Riddick could lose some carries to Justin Forsett but should still be a No. 2 running back in some standard leagues and most point-per-reception leagues.
