Lions' Theo Riddick: May not be cap casualty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick is a candidate to open the 2019 season as the No. 2 running back despite the Lions' recent addition of C.J. Anderson and the re-signing of Zach Zenner, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The report focuses on the fact that Riddick is making nearly double that of Anderson's and Zenner's combined contracts while suggesting the scatback may not be the cap casualty some have speculated him to be, given the fact that Detroit currently has the eighth-most cap space leaguewide, according to the NFLPA's most recent salary cap report. However, Birkett also notes that the Lions can move on from any three of these players with a minimal cap hit, so it appears the backup situation behind Kerryon Johnson could be a fluid situation as the offseason unfolds. Riddick was seen working out in a recent video on the team's Instagram page and appears to be recovered from the groin injury that prevented him from finishing last season's Week 17 game against Green Bay.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Future uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick (groin) isn't guaranteed to remain with the Lions in 2019, Nate Atkins of MLive.com reports.

Detroit could reportedly save $3.4 million by setting Riddick free this offseason, a decision that to some degree will depend on how comfortable the organization is with Kerryon Johnson taking on an expanded role as a receiver. Given how Johnson (6.7 yards per reception, 5.5 yards per target) was more efficient than Riddick was both last season (6.3 YPR, 5.2 YPT) and as a rookie (6.5 YPR, 3.2 YPT) himself in 2013, the 2018 second-rounder showed promise as a pass catcher during his first professional go-around and he still has significant room to grow in the volume department. Riddick's chances of sticking around will further decline if the team brings back Zach Zenner, whose emergence down the stretch (8.0 YPR, 5.6 YPT) actually turned out to be the most efficient of the bunch in 2018, and he's only two years removed from a 2016 campaign in which he averaged a sterling 10.9 YPR and 8.5 YPT over 23 targets.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Injures groin Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick suffered a groin injury during Sunday's game at Green Bay, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Prior to his departure in the third quarter, Riddick had four carries for 24 yards but hadn't been targeted by Matthew Stafford. If he doesn't return, Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount will finish out the contest as the Lions' available running backs.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Silenced by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed three times for minus-two yards and caught four of five targets for seven yards during Sunday's 27-9 loss to Minnesota.

Splitting time with Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount, Riddick arguably had his worst game of the season against a stout Vikings defense that entered the game having allowed the fourth-least total yards per game in 2018. Still without either a touchdown or more than 60 scrimmage yards in any one game this season, Riddick is nothing short of a desperation play for any fantasy owners still in competition during the Week 17 season finale.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Effective on ground in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed eight times for 47 yards and caught two of three targets for nine yards in Sunday's 14-13 loss to Buffalo.

Riddick was Detroit's leading rusher in this one, though Zach Zenner had the better overall performance with 45 yards and a short touchdown on 10 carries. Look for Riddick to be more involved as a receiver against the Vikings in Week 16, with Detroit likely to fall behind and employ a more pass-heavy formula.
