    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not practice for a third straight day Friday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has seen a total of 10 touches over his last three games and missed Week 6, so his absence shouldn't be that big of a deal. Kerryon Johnson should get see a bit more work in the passing game as a result.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 3:55pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: It's looking like Riddick will once again be out when the Lions take on the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday. If he doesn't play, that'll be five straight on the sidelines for the veteran tailback. Kerryon Johnson will continue to benefit in his absence.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 4:16pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: It's definitely a concern that straight out of the bye week, Riddick wasn't able to practice, but it could also be the team managing the veteran's reps. Obviously, his owners will have to be on top of his status throughout the week as a result of this development, but he's only a FLEX play in deep leagues anyway.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:42pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick caught four passes for 20 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. He also rushed for seven yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Riddick should continue to be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues when he is facing a favorable matchup but likely will be on the bench most weeks.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 4:30pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) suffered an ankle injury late in the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Riddick left injured and LeGarrette Blount was ejected, so Kerryon Johnson was the only healthy running back able to finish the game. The Lions host the Patriots in Week 3.

  • Posted: 8/21/2018 7:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 21.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Riddick is dealing with an injury or just needed a day off. He likely will continue to be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 4:27pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed eight times for 16 yards in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added three receptions for 23 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has proven to be a decent low-end RB3 or flex option in PPR formats, but he has significantly less value in standard play.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 12:05pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Riddick likely will share playing time with Ameer Abdullah this week but should receive a solid amount of touches in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because he should have some success against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 1:10pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) participated fully in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Riddick may not see as much work as he has been with Ameer Abdullah now fully healthy. He'll still see his fair share of touches, though, especially if Abdullah is in the dog house as has been speculated. Riddick deserves RB2 or flex consideration in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 1:14pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was full go in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Riddick continues to be the Detroit running back you want to start in PPR leagues. He came back down to earth last week, but Riddick has been a borderline PPR RB1 over the last three weeks. Start him comfortably in what is a terrific matchup versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 5:40pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick ran eight times for 49 yards in a Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: With Riddick and Tion Green splitting carries as Ameer Abdullah heals, it has been a logjam in Detroit. Riddick is battling some wrist issues, but overall this was not the strong performance the Lions hoped for from their running game.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 3:52pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) suffered a wrist injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see how long Riddick may be sidelined. Ameer Abdullah and Tion Green would see time at running back while Riddick is sidelined and would have value in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 7:08pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed 10 times for a team-high 29 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six receptions for 64 yards on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick was the biggest beneficiary with Ameer Abdullah inactive, as he has 16 total touches to five for Tion Green and two for Zach Zenner. As long as Abdullah is on the shelf it's Riddick who is a valuable flex play in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 5:52am ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick is expected to start Week 13's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is expected to sit out against the Ravens, so Riddick is receiving the starting nod and should receive the bulk of the carries, making him a decent flex option in PPR leagues. RBs Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner could also see time in the backfield but are not viable starting options in any fantasy format.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 4:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed for 20 yards on five carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Riddick has been receiving under 10 touches per game for most of the season and has been limited to two catches for 14 yards in he last two games. He should still be used in the running and passing game but is not a must-start option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 2:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for a team-high 35 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears and he added one reception for four yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Riddick stepped up in the backfield with Ameer Abdullah going nowhere. Neither running back has a very good fantasy outlook heading into Thanksgiving against the Vikings in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 9:21pm ET

    Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick accumulated a season-high 73 total yards in the team's Week 9 game Monday, Nov. 6, versus the Green Bay Packers. He finished with 11 rushing yards on five attempts and hauled in all four of his targets for 62 yards.

    Huddle Up: It's not saying much that Riddick was able to produce a season high in this one, as the five-year veteran really hasn't had a chance to match his output from the previous two years. But it's worth noting that after Ameer Abdullah fumbled the ball for the second time in the game, it was Riddick and Dwayne Washington who saw all the work out of the backfield, meaning Riddick could be getting a boost if Abdullah's workload is cut. It's a situation worth following.
