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.

Lions | DET met with Matt Prater's agent

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 23:49:10 -0800

Free-agent PK Matt Prater (Lions) had his agent meet with general manager Martin Mayhew at the NFL Scouting Combine Friday, Feb. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Prater has already said he wants to re-sign with the Lions, and the team believes he could have Pro Bowl versatility. After a rough start Prater racked up 84 points in 11 games and missed only five field goals. Three of those came in the early weeks, meaning Prater got better as he went along. Prater could be a solid pickup given a full 16-game schedule.

Lions | Reggie Bush's status is up in the air

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:28:28 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush may be let go this offseason, according to general manager Martin Mayhew, but nothing is certain as the situation stands. "No, we haven't made a determination at this point," Mayhew said. "Anybody on our roster, there's a lot of futures up in the air." Bush has two years left on his current contract and is due $3.25 in base pay this season.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions already have Joique Bell and Theo Riddick rostered, so it would make sense if Bush were released. Bush's value would remain somewhat limited in Detroit, though he would likely be part of a committee no matter where he plays in 2015.
