Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Riddick Reportedly In Line for RZ Work


Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions homepage expects Cooter to utilize Riddick in the Red Zone more in 2017.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Riddick Has Wrist Surgery


Theo Riddick has reportedly had wrist surgery on both wrists, as the Detriot Lions have released this as the reason he was placed on IR at the end of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick is not expected to miss any off season work from the surgery. Expect the Lions to use Riddick as a 3rd down back to compliment Ameer Abdullah in a near 50/50 split.

Riddick Not Playing Week 14


Adjust your line-ups accordingly, Riddick is out.

Fantasy Goo:
-Zenner will get the bump, but not active in passing game
- PPR leagues I would look elsewhere
- R Mathews returns, he might have been dropped, if you can move it to the flex spot, maybe Taylor Gabriel, Ginn, even Inman - great matchup = all could be flex options that might be on the waiver wire.

Theo Riddick Takes Reps At Practice In A Limited Capacity


Theo Riddick (ankle) took part in some portions of Lions' practice Wednesday.

Fantasy Goo: It's promising to see that Riddick has continued to practice since late last week, but, as we saw against Washington, that's no guarantee Riddick will see game action against the Texans. Monitor his status this week and check back on Saturday for, hopefully, a final determination of his status for this week.

Theo Riddick Officially Out For Week Six Matchup Vs Rams


Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick will miss Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams with an ankle injury. With Dwayne Washington's status up in the air, expect to see a lot of Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in the matchup despite the fact that he was just signed by the team earlier in the week. Forsett could be an upside RB2 option for fantasy football purposes in Week 6.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Detroit Lions

Dwayne Washington could offer fantasy depth


Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington & Zach Zenner are likely to be the running backs going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Dwayne Washington is not a spectacular running back but he should be the early downs runner and goal line back which is something to be happy with for starters. If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Ameer Abdullah Heading To Injured Reserve


The Detroit Lions have placed RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) on the injured reserve list on Wednesday.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Dont know what this does to the roles of Joique Bell, Reggie Bush, or Theo Riddick. George Winn is the most likely the odd-man-out. If your not in a PPR league, I would avoid all three until the dust clears.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick.

Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington & Zach Zenner are likely to be the running backs going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Dwayne Washington is not a spectacular running back but he should be the early downs runner and goal line back which is something to be happy with for starters. If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

- R Mathews returns, he might have been dropped, if you can move it to the flex spot, maybe Taylor Gabriel, Ginn, even Inman - great matchup = all could be flex options that might be on the waiver wire.

Monitor his status this week and check back on Saturday for, hopefully, a final determination of his status for this week.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington & Zach Zenner are likely to be the running backs going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Dwayne Washington is not a spectacular running back but he should be the early downs runner and goal line back which is something to be happy with for starters. If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Adjust your line-ups accordingly, Riddick is out.

Fantasy Goo:
-Zenner will get the bump, but not active in passing game
- PPR leagues I would look elsewhere
- R Mathews returns, he might have been dropped, if you can move it to the flex spot, maybe Taylor Gabriel, Ginn, even Inman - great matchup = all could be flex options that might be on the waiver wire.

Theo Riddick Takes Reps At Practice In A Limited Capacity


Theo Riddick (ankle) took part in some portions of Lions' practice Wednesday.

Fantasy Goo: It's promising to see that Riddick has continued to practice since late last week, but, as we saw against Washington, that's no guarantee Riddick will see game action against the Texans. Monitor his status this week and check back on Saturday for, hopefully, a final determination of his status for this week.

Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Riddick Reportedly In Line for RZ Work

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington & Zach Zenner are likely to be the running backs going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Dwayne Washington is not a spectacular running back but he should be the early downs runner and goal line back which is something to be happy with for starters. If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Fantasy goo:Riddick, who just recently joined the organization was in on just 12 snaps last week, getting 6 looks. Another week of practice will bode well, but both he and Zenner are real shots in the dark.

Theo Riddick Officially Out For Week Six Matchup Vs Rams


Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick will miss Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams with an ankle injury. With Dwayne Washington's status up in the air, expect to see a lot of Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in the matchup despite the fact that he was just signed by the team earlier in the week. Forsett could be an upside RB2 option for fantasy football purposes in Week 6.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Dont know what this does to the roles of Joique Bell, Reggie Bush, or Theo Riddick. George Winn is the most likely the odd-man-out. If your not in a PPR league, I would avoid all three until the dust clears.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Ameer Abdullah Heading To Injured Reserve


The Detroit Lions have placed RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) on the injured reserve list on Wednesday.

Fantasy Goo: After an outstanding start to the season, Abdullah injured his foot in Week two and was placed on the injured reserve list on Wednesday. Theo Riddick will likely take on a larger role on the offense while Dwayne Washington is expected to receive an increased workload in Abdullah's absence.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington & Zach Zenner are likely to be the running backs going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Dwayne Washington is not a spectacular running back but he should be the early downs runner and goal line back which is something to be happy with for starters. If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo Riddick

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick will miss Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams with an ankle injury. With Dwayne Washington's status up in the air, expect to see a lot of Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in the matchup despite the fact that he was just signed by the team earlier in the week. Forsett could be an upside RB2 option for fantasy football purposes in Week 6.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington & Zach Zenner are likely to be the running backs going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Dwayne Washington is not a spectacular running back but he should be the early downs runner and goal line back which is something to be happy with for starters. If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Dont know what this does to the roles of Joique Bell, Reggie Bush, or Theo Riddick. George Winn is the most likely the odd-man-out. If your not in a PPR league, I would avoid all three until the dust clears.

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Riddick Reportedly In Line for RZ Work

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Fantasy Goo: We are still yet to see what the Lions RBBC split will be because of health issues. If healthy expect an approximate 40/40/20 split for Abdullah, Riddick and Zenner respectfully.

Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Ameer Abdullah

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Monitor his status this week and check back on Saturday for, hopefully, a final determination of his status for this week.

Theo Riddick Did Not Practice On Wednesday


Theo Riddick (ankle) sat out practice Wednesday, October 12.

Fantasy Goo: After handling the vast majority of rushing work Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems Detroit's coaching staff is giving Riddick time off to deal with a tweaked ankle. The Lions are frustratingly tight-lipped about their players' health statuses, so it's unsurprising that this is the first we've heard of any injury to Riddick. Newly acquired veteran Justin Forsett is likely seeing more work in Riddick's absence and is probably worth rostering until we know more about Riddick's health, especially considering how thin Detroit is at running back to begin with.

If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners.

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Fantasy Goo: We are still yet to see what the Lions RBBC split will be because of health issues. If healthy expect an approximate 40/40/20 split for Abdullah, Riddick and Zenner respectfully.

Riddick Has Wrist Surgery


Theo Riddick has reportedly had wrist surgery on both wrists, as the Detriot Lions have released this as the reason he was placed on IR at the end of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick is not expected to miss any off season work from the surgery. Expect the Lions to use Riddick as a 3rd down back to compliment Ameer Abdullah in a near 50/50 split.

- R Mathews returns, he might have been dropped, if you can move it to the flex spot, maybe Taylor Gabriel, Ginn, even Inman - great matchup = all could be flex options that might be on the waiver wire.

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

If he plays well his carries will increase. Theo Riddick will be the pass catching back and change of pace back. Zenner could be a goal line sniper who could piss off Dwayne Washington owners. Taking Washington is a gamble but, isn’t fantasy football about gambles?

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Lions Backs to See Increased Workload


Without Abdullah, Riddick will certainly see an increase in work, especially since they are 7.5 underdogs to the Packers.

Fantasy Goo: The real question: Who will take the job in between the tackles. Most pundits agree that Washinton will be the man. However, who does not contribute on special teams and thus has not been active, will see an increase in snaps. Zenner was the darling of the 2015 preseason. He lost his job this year to Washinton. However, the rookie has struggled a bit with fumbles. If he lets go of another one, that could give Zenner enough of an opening. In deeper leagues, I would nab Double Z if I had the room.

Ameer Abdullah Heading To Injured Reserve


The Detroit Lions have placed RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) on the injured reserve list on Wednesday.

Fantasy Goo: After an outstanding start to the season, Abdullah injured his foot in Week two and was placed on the injured reserve list on Wednesday. Theo Riddick will likely take on a larger role on the offense while Dwayne Washington is expected to receive an increased workload in Abdullah's absence.

Zach Zenner

Detroit Lions

Commitment to Committee


The Lions afforded at least five touches to each of three running backs in 12 of their 16 games last season, including seven of their eight games after the bye. It’s not as if the Lions just rode the hot hand each week; Cooter integrated the entire backfield into the offense and actually preferred using the skill sets of three different running backs.

Fantasy Goo: Ameer Abdullah should lead the pride of Lions in touches in 2016 but, will share the kill with others. Last season Ameer Abdullah had 3 touchdowns, Joique Bell had 4 TDs and Riddick had 3. This year the Lions will say goodbye to Bell and say hello to more Zach Zenner (35 Wonderlic). Zach led all NFL running backs in touchdowns for the 2015 preseason. Sadly, Zenner’s 2015 ended when he cracked multiple ribs and suffered a partially collapsed lung. Ameer Abdullah is going to be the first Lion drafted in your league and should be the most productive as Ameer had fantasy owners salivating after a couple long preseasons runs last year. Unfortunately, Ameer only averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2015. My advice is to avoid Detroit running backs unless one of them are getting the rock quite a bit during the season and are sitting on the waiver wire or if you must draft one make it very late in your draft.

Theo will Play in Week 6


Riddick will get the nod, but fellow Lion, Joique Bell, will not. Through Week 5, Riddick leads all RBs in targets and receptions. He was the 10th best fantasy RB last week in full PPR formats.

Moving On


Dont know what this does to the roles of Joique Bell, Reggie Bush, or Theo Riddick. George Winn is the most likely the odd-man-out. If your not in a PPR league, I would avoid all three until the dust clears.

Back at it


Looks like the combination of Theo Riddick and Joique Bell this week, as Reggie Bush most likely will be out, since next week is a bye for the Lions.

Abdullah Likely Out


Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter.

Fantasy Goo: Over the past three seasons, in the eight games without Abdullah, Riddick has seen about an extra six carries for about twenty yards per game. His targets and TD’s increase substantially giving him a 5 point PPR bump, but against this Ravens defense I’m not rushing to get Riddick in my starting line-up.

Riddick Reportedly In Line for RZ Work


Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions homepage expects Cooter to utilize Riddick in the Red Zone more in 2017.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Bob Quinn Says Abdullah is Starter


The Lions came out of the draft without adding another RB to the mix as GM Quinn says that Guapo is the starter. Expect Too see a healthy dose of Riddick and Zenner to get more touches and likely goal line work after his strong finish to 2016.

Fantasy Goo: We are still yet to see what the Lions RBBC split will be because of health issues. If healthy expect an approximate 40/40/20 split for Abdullah, Riddick and Zenner respectfully.

Riddick Has Wrist Surgery


Theo Riddick has reportedly had wrist surgery on both wrists, as the Detriot Lions have released this as the reason he was placed on IR at the end of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick is not expected to miss any off season work from the surgery. Expect the Lions to use Riddick as a 3rd down back to compliment Ameer Abdullah in a near 50/50 split.
