Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season, according to sources. Riddick is expected to be a full participant in organized team activities later this spring.
Fantasy Tip: The Lions appear to be doing everything in their power to improve the running game this offseason, but Riddick's role as the passing-down specialist in an offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter's quick-hitting offense would seem to make him the safest fantasy investment at his position. At the moment, he's worth a look as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues this season.

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) could return to the Detroit Lions for a second season according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein, but likely only if T.J. Jones and Jace Billingsley do not step up to assume the No. 3 receiving job. Rothstein also believes Boldin is unlikely to sign with any team until just before training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Boldin is 36, so it makes sense the Lions would want one of their younger receivers to step forward. Boldin was arguably Matthew Stafford's favorite third-down and red zone weapon last season and still has enough left to help a team in a similar role in 2017. Regardless of where he lands, he'll like be no more than a low-end WR4 or WR5 in fantasy.
