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) is expected to play against the Houston Texans in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Riddick has missed the last two games because of the injury but probably will regain his starting job in Week 8. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he is active.

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.

The Detroit Lions have declared CB Adairius Barnes, OT Corey Robinson, LB DeAndre Levy, RB Dwayne Washington, TE Eric Ebron, DL Haloti Ngata, RB Theo Riddick inactive for Week 7.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not practice Friday, Oct. 21, and he has been ruled out for Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: With Riddick out and Dwayne Washington questionable, Zach Zenner could be worth a flier in DFS formats if he ends up starting in Week 7.
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.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Riddick hasn't practiced yet this week and could be in danger of missing his second consecutive contest. If he has to sit out again, the Lions would likely go to a three-man committee of Justin Forsett, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington, making it very difficult to trust either of those options this weekend in any fantasy league.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Riddick was not able to play in Week 6 and likely will have to practice this week if he wants a chance to play in Week 7. Owners probably should consider other options for their lineups and not hope that Riddick plays.
Sun, 16 Oct 2016 08:44:35 -0700
The Detroit Lions have declared CB Adairius Barnes, LB DeAndre Levy, RB Dwayne Washington, TE Eric Ebron, DL Haloti Ngata, OG Larry Warford, RB Theo Riddick inactive for Week 6.
Fri, 14 Oct 2016 13:09:13 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Tip: With Dwayne Washington questionable due to foot and ankle sprains, newly signed Justin Forsett may have a bigger-than-expected role less than a week after joining the Lions. Forsett fits Riddick's role in this offense much better than Zach Zenner, so five to eight carries and three to five catches for the former Baltimore Raven should not be ruled out. That alone would put Forsett on the flex radar.
