Lions get minor contributions from role players
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Lions' role players didn't make a huge impact Week 11 at Arizona. Running back Theo Riddick ran twice for 2 yards and caught three of six targets for 24 yards. Rookie tight end Eric Ebron hauled in all four of his targets for 22 yards.

Fullback Jed Collins carried twice for 3 yards, and wideout Jeremy Ross had a 7-yard grab. They'll all visit New England in Week 12.

Joique Bell stars in losing effort
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell had another solid performance in Week 11, as he totaled 100-plus all-purpose yards in a 14-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Bell got the bulk of the work in the running game, rushing the ball 14 times for 85 yards. He was the only Lions player to run it more than twice, and he added three receptions for 30 yards, besting Theo Riddick's contribution of three catches for 24 yards.

Riddick is supposed to be the pass-catcher with Reggie Bush out, but that probably undersells Bell's abilities in that regard a bit. Bell is a solid all-around option, and should keep getting this much work as long as Bush is sidelined. He has solid Fantasy value moving forward, while Riddick remains just a low-end PPR option.

Lions backfield split still cloudy
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Lions have a crowded house in the backfield, and Fantasy owners got a glimpse of that in Week 10's win over the Dolphins.

Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick got plenty of work in Sunday, with the trio combining for five receptions and 17 carries overall, however Bell was the only one of the three to touch the ball more than five times. Still, it was Riddick who made the biggest play of the game among the three, coming down with an 11-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to win the game.

The Lions made it clear before the game they weren't going to have a No. 1 back, and that was certainly the case Sunday. And, with nobody really standing out good or bad, it will likely continue to be the case moving forward, making all three somewhat risky Fantasy options in any given game. The Lions face another tough matchup in Week 11, with the Cardinals on the way.

Lions RB Theo Riddick catches game-winning TD pass
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Theo Riddick had only two catches on the day, and made one of them count for six, sealing a 20-16 victory over Miami in Week 10.

Riddick caught a swing pass at the back of the end zone for an 11-yard score with 29 seconds remaining in the game to give Detroit the lead and the win. He was targeted three times and finished with two catches for 5 yards and a score. He took three handoffs for no gain.

The Lions will travel to Phoenix to face the Cardinals in Week 11.

Lions offensive coordinator wants to use more two-back sets
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Thursday running backs Reggie Bush and Theo Riddick have somewhat redundant roles, but he still feels both will have a role moving forward.

Lombardi added he wants to use more two-back sets to get Riddick playing time. However, it will not necessarily be at the expense of Bush's reps.

The Lions' backfield also features Joique Bell, who is the team's leading rusher with 313 yards and three touchdowns.
