Theo Riddick gains 60 receiving yards in Lions loss

Theo Riddick didn't receive a carry against the Bears in Week 10 but did have six receptions for 60 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Impact

Riddick continues to be used as the primary receiving back when the Lions are trailing and on passing downs. He has some value in deep PPR leagues as the Lions figure to be trailing often.

Theo Riddick snags seven receptions in return

Theo Riddick returned to the field for the Lions in Week 9 and had seven receptions for 36 yards on eight targets during a 24-9 loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Riddick benefited from the Lions playing catchup on Sunday. He could also benefit going forward from the trade of Golden Tate which will open up more targets underneath the coverage. He is a viable bye week fill-in option in PPR leagues.

Theo Riddick to return Week 9

Theo Riddick has been removed from the team's injury report and will play Week 9 against the Vikings. Riddick has been out with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Riddick could resume his role as the team's pass-catching specialist, a role that has resulted in fantasy relevance in previous seasons. However, Kerryon Johnson is also very capable as a receiver, and it's not clear how much volume Riddick will see in his return. If you can afford it, this situation is better to wait and see on than start Riddick Week 9.

Theo Riddick returns to practice

Theo Riddick was able to return to practice Wednesday. He's been sidelined due to a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Riddick has been out since Week 5 due to the injury. He could return this weekend against the Vikings, though it's not clear what role he'd return to. While he may not be fantasy relevant upon return, he could hurt Kerryon Johnson's stock by eating into his receiving game work.

Theo Riddick ruled out Week 8

Theo Riddick has been ruled out for the team's Week 8 contest against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Riddick hasn't been able to return to practice to this point, as he continues to be out with his knee injury. He's hard to continue rostering outside of deeper leagues. In his absence, Kerryon Johnson will continue to be the primary RB in this offense with LeGarrette Blount seeing most of the short-yardage and goal-line work.
