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.

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.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick had a strong offseason and caught the eye of new head coach Jim Caldwell and his staff, leading to speculation he could have a larger role in the offense.
Fantasy Tip: While Riddick is still behind Reggie Bush on the depth chart, keep in mind only a few people in Detroit knew who Joique Bell was because he played at hometown Wayne State University. People know who Bell is now, so if Riddick gets a chance to shine he could succeed. This is worth monitoring for handcuff purposes.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush indicated he believes RB Theo Riddick will have a role in the offense this upcoming season because he is hard to cover in passing game. Riddick could receive more snaps this season, because offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi could use Riddick like RB Darren Sproles was used with the New Orleans Saints.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) aggravated his calf injury during pregame warmups in Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he did not play. Because Bush's injury happened so late, the team had just two active running backs, RBs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick, who has a similar running style to RB Reggie Bush, saw more playing time in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after Bush lost his second fumble in the last three games. However, head coach Jim Schwartz refuses to say that Bush was benched in the contest. "It was just a couple of plays," Schwartz said. "We didn't have Joique Bell at that time, he had gone out of the game. Reggie had been taking a lot of reps. We wanted to take a little bit of that load off of him. It wasn't more than anything there."
