Fantasy Analysis | 1414346092
Theo Riddick a major factor in the passing game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The absence of Reggie Bush was supposed to lead to an increased role for Lions running back Joique Bell in Week 8, but things didn't exactly go as planned in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Bell had 16 touches Sunday, a solid number, but below his total of 20 from each of the previous two games. The Lions only ran the ball 23 times Sunday, which explains why Bell's role was smaller. However, he was mostly a nonfactor in the receiving game, which allowed reserve Theo Riddick to thrive once again in a larger role.

Riddick found the end zone for the second straight game, as he hauled in eight pass for 74 yards. He now has 149 yards on 13 receptions for two touchdowns over the last two games, after having no catches through six games to start the season.

After he hauled in 52 and 53 receptions in his first two seasons, we assumed Bell would once again figure heavily into the team's plans out of the backfield. However, he has caught more than two passes in a game just once this season, as the team has preferred to limit his role. He remains the primary running option and should be so moving forward. However, as long as Bush remains sidelined, Riddick is looking like a solid Fantasy player, especially in PPR formats.

Lions RB Theo Riddick scores second touchdown of season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With Reggie Bush sidelined, Lions running back Theo Riddick shouldered the load in the aerial attack Sunday afternoon in London against the Falcons.

Riddick came down with 5-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter. He was targeted 12 times and finished as the team's second-leading receiver with eight catches for 74 yards in a 22-21 victory. He has 13 catches for 149 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games.

The Lions are on a bye Week 9 before returning Week 10 at home against the Dolphins.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Theo Riddick, who missed Week 7 with a hamstring injury, was ruled active for Week 8 against the Falcons in London. With Reggie Bush sidelined with an ankle injury, the team will likely turn to Riddick as the primary backup to Joique Bell on Sunday. Riddick has nine carries for 28 yards and nine catches for 75 yards and a score this season.
