Lions | Theo Riddick does not practice

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 19:49:10 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

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.

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.
