In the past, Riddick has been a worthwhile flex option in PPR leagues but not worth much in standard leagues. Now, with the addition of Kerryon Johnson alongside LeGarrette Blount, Riddick's value may decrease even more. Still, he's a good pass-catching running back, so he might still get some work.Blount went to basically the worst team possible for his skill set in the Lions, as Jim Bob Cooter enjoys his receiving backs and Blount can't catch a pass to save his life. I would expect him to reprise the role he had in Philadelphia as the short-yardage back, which means he'll get some touchdowns, but the Lions are not the Eagles-they have one of the worst offensive lines in football-so don't expect last year to repeat itself.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Riddick will continue to be a PPR fantasy option, as he has a clear path to the majority of running back targets this season with Blount and Johnson both not proficient as receivers.Blount hasn't always gotten a ton of work, but he's always been productive. His inability in the receiving game is what will continue to hold him back, but I like his fit with the Lions, because they very much need someone to grab those goal-line touchdowns and other short-yardage plays.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
The only RB with 50+ catches in each of the last three seasons, Riddick has maintained PPR value (RB 18, 25, and 26) despite compiling 776 combined rushing yards on 219 carries. Drafters are nevertheless nonplussed with a steady hand who has not scored more than six TDs in a single season or hit the 100-yard plateau since Oct. 20, 2016. Kerryon Johnson's three-down abilities caps Riddick's ceiling, but he's a useful low-floor PPR bench pick. Of all the rushers with over 25 red-zone carries, none made fewer-end zone trips than Blount (two), who amassed minus-seven yards on 10 carries inside the 5-yard line. But he's big and scored 18 TDs with New England in 2016, so poor performance won't necessarily deter Detroit from feeding him near the pylons. As demonstrated by last year's RB39 rank, that's the only way he'll maintain relevancy. Kerryon Johnson will likely outpace Blount in rushes, and the veteran has stockpiled one more catch over his nine-year career (54) than Theo Riddick recorded last season.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Lions backfield is loaded with a bunch of decent backs who are all about on the same level. It will be tough for most of them to find touches except for Riddick who has his job locked in. Expect much of the same, making him a solid depth piece to fill in during bye weeks and injuries. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Riddick has more value in PPR formats but even there it's tough to project him too high given all the bodies in DET now 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Possibly one of the hardest players to predict in fantasy football, as Riddick has been one of the more consistent RB3/RB4's in the game the last few years, but the scenery has changed quite a bit in Detroit. Potentially the worst landing spot for someone with his skill-set, as players who don't participate in the passing-game don't stay on the field under Jim Bob Cooter. It's possible that new head coach Matt Patricia wanted Blount from his days in New England, but when they drafted Kerryon Johnson in the second-round, it pretty much buried the hope for Blount. He may score from time-to-time, but you're better off letting someone else draft him.
