Lions | Theo Riddick in a cast

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 08:30:09 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) had his left wrist in a hard cast Monday, Jan. 9, but he said he hasn't had surgery on it.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick had 53 catches for 371 yards and five scores through the air, and he had a 92-357-1 rushing line. It's not a lock that he'll be used as frequently as he was this season with the late-season emergence of Zach Zenner and the return of Ameer Abdullah (foot). At best, he'll be an RB3 in PPR leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick placed on IR

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 13:05:16 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 31. The team also promoted practice squad WR Jace Billingsley to their active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington will continue to see playing time with Zenner receiving most of the work. Zenner can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues, while Washington probably can be avoided. Riddick may not be a starting running back next season but will still have a solid role on offense and can be a mid- to late-round option in point-per-reception leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick won't return Week 17

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 13:37:12 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) missed practice again Friday, Dec. 30, and he has been ruled out for the team's Week 17 contest Sunday, Jan. 1, against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: With Riddick set to miss his fourth straight game, this will once again open the door for Zach Zenner, who is coming off the best performance of his career this past Monday night, so owners should strongly consider him as an RB2. Dwayne Washington also gets a boost, but he hasn't really proven anything to justify being deployed in standard leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick misses another practice

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 16:22:35 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has missed the last three contests and his lack of participation in practice this late into the week makes it likely he's going to miss a fourth straight. If that is indeed the case once again, owners should give consideration to Zach Zenner, who stepped in and performed admirably this past Monday night. Dwayne Washington also deserves a look, but Zenner is the better bet.

Lions | Theo Riddick doesn't practice

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 15:03:57 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Riddick to suit up this week after missing the last two games. The Lions will likely save him for the postseason. One can do worse than starting Zach Zenner, if need be, after he found the endzone twice last week.

Lions | Theo Riddick did more side work

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 06:47:41 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) ramped up his side work in practice last week.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has a chance to return for the regular season finale against the Green Bay Packers. It's a midrange matchup, and he could be a flex candidate in PPR leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick to miss Week 16

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 16:14:25 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 16 game.

Fantasy Tip: Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner will continue to share snaps at running back with Riddick sidelined. Washington probably will receive a few more touches than Zenner, but neither player should be fantasy options.

Lions | Theo Riddick doubtful

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 12:22:24 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not participate in practice Saturday, Dec. 24, and is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick likely will miss another game, so owners should avoid him in all leagues. Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner should share snaps at running back in Week 16 but neither player is more than a flex option in deeper leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick a no-go in practice Friday

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 11:15:56 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was running on the side but did not participate in the open portion of practice Friday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: With most of the league playing on Saturday this week, most owners probably aren't going to have the luxury of knowing whether or not Riddick will suit up Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. As a result, owners should go ahead and bench him at this point. Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner will likely split most of the work in the Detroit backfield, but neither player is worth a start this week.

Lions | Theo Riddick not practicing

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 10:06:40 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 22, but is working with trainers on the sidelines.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if Riddick has any chance to play in Week 16. He has missed the last two games because of his wrist injury and probably would be limited if he plays. Owners should look for other options to use and avoid Riddick.

Lions | Theo Riddick declared out for Week 15

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 08:54:58 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) has been declared inactive for Week 15's game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick did not practice at all during the week and will remain sidelined for the second consecutive game. Dwayne Washington will receive the bulk of the carries for Detroit this afternoon and is worthy of consideration as a flex option in deeper seasonal fantasy leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick unlikely to play

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 08:00:10 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is not expected to play in Week 15's game against the New York Giants. He was listed as doubtful on the injury report and did not practice at all this week.

Fantasy Tip: Dwayne Washington is expected to see the bulk of the carries this week but he should not be viewed as anything more than a possible flex play in deeper seasonal leagues. Zach Zenner could also see some playing time but isn't a viable fantasy option.

Lions | Doubtful tag for Theo Riddick

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 16:42:15 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is listed as doubtful for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Riddick will miss another game, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. Dwayne Washington may receive most of the work at running back in Week 15 but should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick sidelined Friday

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 09:12:48 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) sat out of practice Friday, Dec. 16 and has not practiced this week after sitting out Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: It would come as a surprise if Riddick is not ruled out later today and should make it even more difficult to trust the Detroit offense this weekend. Being able to isolate Riddick on a linebacker in the passing game was one of the few advantages the Lions were going to have against the New York Giants, who should be able to shut down Detroit's lackluster running game and have three cornerbacks capable of defending Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin. Use any Lion at your own peril this weekend.

Lions | No practice for Theo Riddick

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 13:29:18 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: This is the point in the week where missing practice starts to become a concern. If Riddick is absent again tomorrow then it could be another week of Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner. Be prepared for a backup plan if Riddick can't play. Kenneth Farrow would be a good starting option in place of Riddick, for example.

Lions | Theo Riddick on the sidelines

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 10:20:08 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick is in danger of missing his second straight game because of his injury, so owners should check on his status closer to game time. Dwayne Washington would receive more work if Riddick is ruled out but would not be more than a flex option in deeper leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick misses practice

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 13:37:50 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick missed last week's game and continues to recover from a wrist injury. His status will need to be tracked over the next few days, but if he can't go again this week then Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner (if he's active) would be the primary ball-carriers. Neither should be started in the fantasy playoffs, however.

Lions | Theo Riddick to miss game

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 08:54:18 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner probably will split carries with Riddick out of the lineup. Zenner could receive more work around the goal line, which will help his fantasy value. Owners could consider both players as flex options in deeper leagues.

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:21:06 -0800

Detroit Lions LB Theo Riddick (wrist) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should be fine for the game and will receive most of the work at running back despite the injury. He should be considered a decent No. 2 running back in all leagues because of his production in the passing game in addition to the running game.

Lions | Theo Riddick on the field

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 10:57:03 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was participating during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should be able to play in Week 14, but owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he suffers any setbacks. Riddick has not posted great numbers over the last few weeks but should still have a solid role in the offense. He can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick sits Wednesday

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:02:08 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that Riddick would sit this week after being able to play last week while not at 100%. If the shifty running back is unexpectedly sidelined, however, then Dwayne Washington would make for a sleeper option in deeper standard leagues.

Lions | Limited practice for Theo Riddick

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 14:26:38 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: There are no indications that Riddick will be missing this game, as long as he doesn't have any setbacks between now and kickoff. He's one of the more underrated running backs this week as he should be heavily involved in the passing game in what could be a shootout with the New Orleans Saints. He has high-end RB2 upside in PPR leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick also limited

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 13:23:38 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick had an off week last week, but he's primed for a rebound performance in a great matchup versus the New Orleans Saints. He should continue to split time in the running game, but his value in the passing game makes him an RB2 option in PPR formats.

Lions | Theo Riddick a disappointment

Thu, 24 Nov 2016 13:21:40 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick only managed 58 yards from scrimmage Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick and the rest of the offense were definitely in one of their tougher matchups of the year against the Minnesota Vikings. He'll continue to lead the Lions in touches out of the backfield as long as he's healthy, though. Don't be terribly discouraged by this outing.

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 13:46:29 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick should be able to play this week and probably will see the majority of snaps at running back. His ability to produce in the running and passing game is why he should be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick was hampered last week, too, but he still turned in a nice day in the passing game. That could be the case again this week if he is active. Look for his practice status tomorrow. If he's still limited then he'll be considered questionable.

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 15:13:48 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 21. The Lions did not practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick did most of his damage in the passing game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 where he had 70 yards receiving. Riddick will continue to be the team's No. 1 running back and should be considered a solid No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick injures his finger

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 17:52:39 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (finger) said Sunday, Nov. 20, that he caught his hand in a helmet in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He said it shouldn't affect his ability to carry the ball going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick rushed for 13 yards, but hauled in eight receptions for 70 yards on a game-high 10 targets. He is a must-start fantasy option in PPR formats heading into the Thanksgiving game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick appears to be in the same boat as last week, as he was limited mid-week but able to play and flourish. He is a tremendous RB2 option in all PPR fantasy formats despite the fact he is facing a tough defense.

Lions | Theo Riddick also limited

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 14:40:34 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) had a limited practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick was limited mid-week last week as well and still turned in a stellar performance. He and the Lions face a tougher test in the Minnesota Vikings this week, but the Vikings did just give up over 150 rushing yards and a touchdown to Jordan Howard on Monday night. Riddick remains a solid RB2 option in PPR leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick upgraded to full at practice

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 16:49:18 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: After getting in a limited session on Wednesday, it looks like Riddick will be on his way back from a two-game absence. Prior to landing on the sidelines, the 25-year-old tailback was the biggest piece of Detroit's running game, and he should resume his busy role against the Texans. His return might also hinder Golden Tate, who has stepped up big time the past two weeks in Riddick's absence. Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett also head back to the end of the line if Dwayne Washington suits up as well.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Pay close attention to Riddick's progress this week since he's missed the last two games with the ankle ailment. He should be started as an RB2 in PPR leagues if he is active. He may not run as much if he does play with Dwayne Washington likely back.

Lions | No practice again for Theo Riddick

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.
