Lions' Theo Riddick: Leading receiver against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed six times for 28 yards and caught all four of his targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

The Lions went with a ground-and-pound approach against a Cardinals defense that entered the game having allowed the tenth-least yards per pass attempt (7.2), as Detroit finished the game with 31 rushing attempts versus 23 pass attempts. Riddick ultimately tied for the team lead in targets while Kenny Golladay drew heavy coverage from a Patrick Peterson-led Cardinals secondary. Averaging 50 total yards over his last six games but still without a single touchdown on the season, Riddick will remain an uninspiring fantasy play in a Week 15 matchup with a strong Bills defense.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Totals 58 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed eight times for 32 yards and secured three of four targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams.

Riddick figured to be in line for a prominent pass-catching role while the Lions tried to keep pace with the Rams' explosive offense, but it's become clear that quarterback Matthew Stafford is more than comfortable with peppering receiver Bruce Ellington on short routes to keep the chains moving. Riddick has now been out-targeted by Ellington 26 to 15 over the past three weeks and hasn't topped 60 scrimmage yards in any game in 2018. The scatback will be hard to trust for fantasy purposes when the Lions do battle with the Cardinals in Week 14.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Prominent as pass catcher again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed twice for 12 yards and brought in all seven targets for 48 yards in the Lions' 23-16 loss to the Bears on Thursday.

As expected with both Kerryon Johnson and Marvin Jones down with knee injuries, Riddick saw a hefty workload. However, as customary, the majority was on the receiving end, as he paced the team in catches and checked in second in yardage through the air. Riddick's role figures to remain unchanged irrespective of Johnson's status, but a continued absence by Jones in Week 13 against the Giants will very likely lead to a solid target volume for Riddick.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Plenty of receiving work in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick netted zero yards on his sole rush and brought in five of seven targets for 30 yards in the Lions' 20-19 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

As expected, Riddick served as a de facto possession receiver, often lining out in the slot in the absence of both Marvin Jones (knee) and the recently traded Golden Tate. Riddick's role remained the same even after Kerryon Johnson exited the game with a knee injury, and he'll likely be in for another heavy workload in the passing game versus the Bears in a Thanksgiving Day divisional showdown in four days.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Snags six passes in divisional loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick secured six of seven targets for 60 yards during Sunday's 34-22 loss to the Bears.

Riddick wasn't given a carry for the second consecutive week, but he again served as a key piece of the passing offense as the Lions look for underneath receivers to step up in the wake of Golden Tate's trade to Philadelphia. While the scatback's value in PPR formats is clearly trending upwards as a result, Riddick's upside is severely capped by the presence of fellow tailback Kerryon Johnson, who has also been getting more involved as a pass catcher lately and now has 15 receptions (on 19 targets) for 114 yards and a score over the last three games. It's also worth noting that the recently-signed Bruce Ellington could also become a factor from the slot once he gets up to speed with the playbook.
