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.

Lions | Theo Riddick to start in Week 13

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 05:52:42 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick is expected to start Week 13's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is expected to sit out against the Ravens, so Riddick is receiving the starting nod and should receive the bulk of the carries, making him a decent flex option in PPR leagues. RBs Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner could also see time in the backfield but are not viable starting options in any fantasy format.

Lions | Theo Riddick posts 30 total yards

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:59:44 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed for 20 yards on five carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick has been receiving under 10 touches per game for most of the season and has been limited to two catches for 14 yards in he last two games. He should still be used in the running and passing game but is not a must-start option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.

Lions | Theo Riddick totals 10 touches

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:35:06 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for a team-high 35 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears and he added one reception for four yards on two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick stepped up in the backfield with Ameer Abdullah going nowhere. Neither running back has a very good fantasy outlook heading into Thanksgiving against the Vikings in Week 12.

Lions | Theo Riddick totals seven touches

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:58:13 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed four times for 35 yards in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns while adding three receptions for 12 yards and a touchdown on his three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick remains a decent RB3 or flex option in PPR formats heading into Week 11, but he doesn't see the ball enough to make him anything more than a low-end RB3 in standard play.

Lions | Theo Riddick records season high in yards

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 21:21:32 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick accumulated a season-high 73 total yards in the team's Week 9 game Monday, Nov. 6, versus the Green Bay Packers. He finished with 11 rushing yards on five attempts and hauled in all four of his targets for 62 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It's not saying much that Riddick was able to produce a season high in this one, as the five-year veteran really hasn't had a chance to match his output from the previous two years. But it's worth noting that after Ameer Abdullah fumbled the ball for the second time in the game, it was Riddick and Dwayne Washington who saw all the work out of the backfield, meaning Riddick could be getting a boost if Abdullah's workload is cut. It's a situation worth following.

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:53:04 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed twice for eight yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints while adding five receptions for 45 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick is far more valuable in PPR fantasy leagues than standard formats. The Lions are off in Week 7.

Lions | Six total touches for Theo Riddick

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 15:26:44 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed twice for eight yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers while adding four receptions for 45 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick doesn't do much in the run game, and he likely never will. But he has soft hands out of the backfield, reeling in three or more catches in four of his five games. He remains a decent RB3 or flex play in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 6 against the Saints.
