Lions' Theo Riddick: Compiles 730 total yards in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick (ribs) rushed 84 times for 286 yards and three touchdowns while securing 53 of 71 targets for 444 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games in 2017.

A perennial PPR asset, Riddick had another strong season as a pass-catching specialist for the Lions, ultimately grading out as Pro Football Focus' eighth-ranked tailback from a receiving standpoint. The Notre Dame product also fared better as a runner than his stats might indicate considering the Lions' offensive line was arguably the team's most underachieving position unit on the roster, one that also dealt with its fair share of injuries. With that said, Riddick's ascension to No. 1 on the depth chart was more a product of Detroit's lack of other quality options at the position than anything else, as Ameer Abdullah struggled his way out of the starting job and no other tailback proved capable of taking on a featured role. With Lions general manager Bob Quinn saying Detroit will "absolutely" add another runner to compete for the starting gig this offseason, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, it seems unlikely Riddick will remain atop his perch to start the 2018 campaign.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Sustains rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a rib injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

At the time of his departure early in the third quarter, Riddick had four carries for 10 yards and two receptions (on three targets) for 12 yards. If Riddick doesn't reenter, the backfield will be the domain of Tion Green and Ameer Abdullah.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Easily leads backfield in snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick rushed eight times for 16 yards while catching three of four targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Bengals.

Riddick remained the starter and earned the lion's share of playing time among Detroit tailbacks, as he earned 40 snaps compared to 13 for Tion Green and 11 for Ameer Abdullah. However, he was hardly effective with his touches against a Bengals defense that's allowed the third-most PPR fantasy points to running backs this season -- though it's difficult to fault Riddick too much for his lack of productivity given the injuries that have ravaged his offensive line. The scatback will look to rebound in the season finale Sunday against a Packers team that's allowed the second-most receiving touchdowns to running backs in 2017.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Fine for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick (wrist) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.

There was cause for concern when a wrist injury was reported, as Riddick had surgery on both wrists last December. It turns out the current issue is nothing serious, with Riddick managing full participation in every practice this week. He'll continue in his lead role against a slumping Cincinnati defense.

Lions' Theo Riddick: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddick (wrist) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Riddick hurt his wrist during Saturday's 20-10 win over the Bears, finishing with eight carries for 49 yards, three receptions for 12 yards and a lost fumble. The injury initially seemed concerning for a player who had surgery on both wrists last December, but it turns out Riddick is merely dealing with a minor issue. His ability to log a full practice suggests he should be able to continue with his leading role in the Detroit backfield for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
