Lions | Theo Riddick may have better role

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 11:17:08 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick likely will be given the chance to earn a bigger role in the offense next season after the team released RB Reggie Bush.

Fantasy Tip: Riddick did not receive a lot of carries this past season but was involved in the passing game. He caught 34 passes for 316 yards and four touchdowns during the season. Riddick likely will have more value in point-per-reception leagues than he will in standard leagues, but probably will be a mid- to late-round pick in most drafts.

Lions | Reggie Bush released

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:22:33 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush has been released Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Fantasy Tip: This means Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will take over running back duties in Detroit. Riddick will likely take over Bush's role as a complementary, passing down back to Bell and is now a candidate for sleeper status in point-per-reception (PPR) leagues. Bell should see the majority of carries and work near the goal line and remains an RB2 option. As far as Bush is concerned, he still has some gas left in the tank. His fantasy value will obviously depend on where he lands, but he should continue to have more value in PPR leagues.

Lions | George Johnson's free agent status questioned

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 23:17:52 -0800

Free-agent DE George Johnson (Lions) may or may not be an unrestricted free agent. A player must accumulate four accrued seasons to earn unrestricted free agency, and players must spend six weeks on a 53-man roster to earn an accrued year. Johnson did this in 2011, 2012 and 2014, but in 2013 he was paid for six weeks but was on the Minnesota Vikings' roster for only five.
