Lions' Theo Riddick: Used sparingly against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed three times for three yards and caught two of three targets for 20 yards during Sunday's 31-23 win over the Packers.

Not only has Riddick received just eight carries on the season, but he's seen five or fewer targets in three of five contests. With Detroit looking to give rookie Kerryon Johnson all the work he can handle, Riddick seems unlikely to suddenly see a spike in usage anytime soon. However, that sentiment would change if the ankle injury Johnson sustained Sunday remains a concern after the team's Week 6 bye.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Snags three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick caught all three of his targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 26-10 win over the Patriots.

That's 17 receptions to just four carries for the scatback, who has not had a rushing attempt since Week 1. Riddick has always been a better receiver than rusher, but carries are even harder to come in Detroit now with LeGarrette Blount and Kerryon Johnson, who snapped the Lions' streak without a 100-yard rusher, in the fold. It's tough to rely on a back that doesn't -- you know -- carry the ball, but at 5.7 catches per game, he remains a PPR possibility.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Leads backfield in touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed four times for 20 yards while securing five of seven targets for 15 yards during Monday's 48-17 loss to the Jets.

Riddick ultimately led the Lions backfield in touches, but not by much -- rookie Kerryon Johnson finished right behind him with eight. While the veteran firmly remains Detroit's preferred passing-down back, it wouldn't be a total surprise if he slightly loses his grip on the role as the season goes on given the potential Johnson is showing as a receiver. With that said, fellow tailback LeGarrette Blount sustained an apparent knee injury Monday, and if the early-down bruiser is forced to miss any time, both Riddick and Johnson could see a boost in playing time. Furthermore, if the Detroit defense is really as bad as they looked in Week 1, game script could frequently turn in Riddick's favor.

Lions' Theo Riddick: No practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick didn't practice Tuesday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Riddick curiously didn't play in the Lions' preseason opener, but his receiving chops were on full display this past Friday against the Giants. Among his 14 offensive snaps scattered between the first and second teams, he paced the team with 50 yards on his three catches (on three targets) and also added one carry for six yards. The reason for his absence Tuesday is unknown, but if it's an injury Riddick may be in danger of missing the all-important Week 3 of exhibition seasons Friday in Tampa Bay.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Doesn't play in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick did not participate in Friday's preseason opener against the Raiders.

The reasoning for Riddick's absence isn't clear, though the running back did miss practice time earlier in the week with an undisclosed injury. Regardless, rookie Kerryon Johnson was the running back who got the rep on the Lions' first third down of the game, which could be something to keep in mind in case Riddick misses any time in the regular season.
