Coming back to a team with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard, and Chris Godwin will be a welcoming sight for Martin, who only has three games left on his suspension. We've seen a hit-or-miss Martin over his career, but he has finished as a top-three running back twice. He could be a steal at this point.With Ameer Abdullah coming back, look for Riddick to go back to his change-of-pace role that he had in 2015, where he totaled over 600 yards receiving, but failed to top seven carries in any game. He's essentially the Darren Sproles of the Lions offense, but younger.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Martin has looked very good in OTAs. He does have to serve a 3-game suspension, but it looks like he should retain the starting role when he returns and have a chance to be a low-end flex on an explosive offense that figures to use a RBBC. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Martin should remain the lead back after his three-game suspension. He will likely concede touches to a few different backs, but I think he'll hold onto the lead role.Riddick is strictly a PPR play. We can't really count on his touchdowns or total yardage, so we have to count solely on his receptions.
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Martin will miss the first 4 games of the season due to suspension when he returns he will likely share time with Jacquizz Rodgers. Auction Value $4 Riddick is a dominate pass catching back who can win you a league. Riddick is coming off double wrist surgery. Auction Value $15
