With Reggie Bush sidelined with an ankle injury,
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
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.
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.
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.
