Lions | Reggie Bush remains confident

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 15:45:25 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) and the coaching staff believe that he can return to form and be one of the most dangerous weapons out of the backfield. Bush has missed five games because of injuries this year, and he had just 12 touches for 34 total yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Theo Riddick didn't play at all, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said that was a one-game anomaly.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to say if Bush ($4,000) will be at full health before the end of the season. For right now, though, Joique Bell ($6,600) is the better play at FantasyScore, and Theo Riddick ($3,600) isn't a smart play with Bush back.

Lions | Theo Riddick without a role?

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:45:09 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick doesn't have much of a role in the offense right now, because RB Reggie Bush is more valuable as both a runner and a receiver. Bush is averaging 1.1 more yards per carry than Riddick and has more speed than him, too. Riddick hasn't shown much ability as a pure running back, making the offense predictable when he's on the field. The Lions have run 25 times of Riddick's 133 snaps this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bush's return has really made Riddick useless for fantasy football owners; Riddick wasn't used at all in Week 14. Don't bother looking at him for $3,600 at FantasyScore this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. Bush ($4,000) should start being considered again as a flex option in PPR leagues like FantasyScore.

Lions | Theo Riddick not being punished

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 12:19:49 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick's lack of playing time in Week 14 was not because he was being punished, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Riddick saw just seven snaps on special teams.

Fantasy Tip: With Joique Bell and Reggie Bush healthy, Riddick's value will be limited going forward, especially if Sunday's game was any indication of his future usage.

Lions | Theo Riddick saw little action

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 07:04:15 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick played seven snaps Sunday, Dec. 7, all of which were on special teams. Head coach Jim Caldwell said it was determined by the flow of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick's value plummeted with Reggie Bush's (ankle) return, but he could still be a factor in the final three games.

Lions | Reggie Bush, Theo Riddick probable

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:08:43 -0800

Detroit Lions RBs Reggie Bush (ankle, back) and Theo Riddick (toe) are probable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Riddick was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 5, while Bush practiced in full for the third straight day.

Fantasy Tip: Despite an excellent matchup against the Bucs, Bush ($4,900) isn't a smart play if he returns, due to his long layoff and the fact that he could be limited. Joique Bell ($5,900) is the one to play in this backfield in Week 14.

Lions | Reggie Bush out Sunday

Sat, 15 Nov 2014 15:39:05 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) will be held out of the game Sunday, Nov. 16, in Week 11. RBs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will split time in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) and Riddick ($4,300; 8.6%) are both fairly priced flex options on FantasyScore this week against the New England Patriots.

Lions | Reggie Bush sees light work

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 07:34:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush played just 19 offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 9, which was 28% of the offense. In contrast, RB Joique Bell played 67% of the snaps and RB Theo Riddick played 10% of the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Bush had four carries for 20 yards and one reception for five yards in Week 10. Clearly, he has been banged up, but one has to wonder if this is also part of his inevitable decline at the age of 29. Avoid him on FantasyScore until he becomes more involved in the offense.

Lions | Lions will still use Theo Riddick

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 11:03:26 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick will continue to have a role in the offense even when RB Reggie Bush (ankle) returns to the lineup, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick would share time with Bush and Joique Bell but has earn some playing time since he has produced in the running and passing game. Riddick would be a flex option for owners in some weeks and would be valuable in point-per-reception leagues.
