Lions | Detroit to use committee backfield

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 10:37:32 -0700

Detroit Lions RBs LeGarrette Blount, Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and others are expected to be used as a committee, according to head coach Matt Patricia. Patricia is a proponent of using a running back's strengths in favorable situations.

Fantasy Tip: Detroit's running game has been stagnant for years now, frustrating fantasy managers. That frustration may not subside with Patricia at the helm. Blount has more upside in standard leagues as the Lions' main touchdown threat, while Riddick possesses RB2 to RB3 upside in PPR formats.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed eight times for 16 yards in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added three receptions for 23 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has proven to be a decent low-end RB3 or flex option in PPR formats, but he has significantly less value in standard play.

Lions | Theo Riddick ready to play

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 12:05:36 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick likely will share playing time with Ameer Abdullah this week but should receive a solid amount of touches in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because he should have some success against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Lions | Theo Riddick fully practices

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 13:10:06 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick may not see as much work as he has been with Ameer Abdullah now fully healthy. He'll still see his fair share of touches, though, especially if Abdullah is in the dog house as has been speculated. Riddick deserves RB2 or flex consideration in PPR leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick fully practices

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 13:14:59 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was full go in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick continues to be the Detroit running back you want to start in PPR leagues. He came back down to earth last week, but Riddick has been a borderline PPR RB1 over the last three weeks. Start him comfortably in what is a terrific matchup versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Lions | Theo Riddick touches the ball eight times in Week 15

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 17:40:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick ran eight times for 49 yards in a Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: With Riddick and Tion Green splitting carries as Ameer Abdullah heals, it has been a logjam in Detroit. Riddick is battling some wrist issues, but overall this was not the strong performance the Lions hoped for from their running game.

Lions | Theo Riddick injures wrist

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 15:52:34 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) suffered a wrist injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Riddick may be sidelined. Ameer Abdullah and Tion Green would see time at running back while Riddick is sidelined and would have value in most leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick totals 93 yards, two scores

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 19:08:33 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed 10 times for a team-high 29 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six receptions for 64 yards on 10 targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick was the biggest beneficiary with Ameer Abdullah inactive, as he has 16 total touches to five for Tion Green and two for Zach Zenner. As long as Abdullah is on the shelf it's Riddick who is a valuable flex play in PPR formats.
