    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, in part because RB Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) did not play.

    Huddle Up: Riddick will have a solid role on offense even when Abdullah will be able to play again. He should be a valuable option for owners in point-per-reception leagues since he caught 80 passes last season. He could be a weekly flex option in PPR leagues and a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues.

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick could have a bigger role running the ball in 2016, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.

    Huddle Up: With 46 more receptions (118) than rushing attempts (72) in three seasons, Riddick certainly has been classified in the Shane Vereen category of pass-catching backs, but he certainly looks to be line for more carries with only second-year Ameer Abdullah currently ahead of him on the Motor City RB depth chart.

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick posted two receptions in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears to set a club record for catches by a running back (78) in a single season.

    Huddle Up: Riddick was a valuable PPR contributor as Detroit's pass-catching back, worth keeping an eye on as things shake out in Detroit this offseason.

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick leads all running backs in targets (36), is tied for second in receiving touchdowns (2) and is fourth in receiving yards (228).

    Huddle Up: With 30 catches for 228 yards and the two TDs, Riddick has been the fantasy MVP for the winless Lions, and is an every-week PPR-league starting consideration.

  • Posted: 10/11/2015 11:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick had a team-high 10 catches for 53 yards and a touchdown in a 42-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: The Lions simply can't run the football right now so Riddick is the best fantasy option as a receiver out of the backfield. He's a viable Flex play in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/6/2015 10:01am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick ran once for five yards in the Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Oct. 5, and he added five receptions for 31 yards.

    Huddle Up: Seattle's swarming defense limited what the Lions could do offensively, but Riddick again carved out PPR value with five receptions. It's a role he seems locked into, even with Ameer Abdullah on the roster, so if you're scraping for a PPR RB replacement for Lance Dunbar Riddick might be your low-cost alternative.

  • Posted: 9/10/2015 10:42am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah is a better receiver than the team thought he was, and beat writer Tim Twentyman said Abdullah is a better receiver than former Lions RB Reggie Bush was. The team figures to use Abdullah a lot in the receiving game, and his role will likely dip into RB Theo Riddick's role.

    Huddle Up: All Abdullah does is impress; eventually he's going to take the Lions' starting job outright, with Riddick and Joique Bell fighting for table scraps. Fantasy owners who spent an early pick on the rookie hope Detroit's coaching staff comes to their senses sooner rather than later.
