Expert Note
View More Notes

Riddick received 10 touches on Sunday against the Bears, the most since Week 2, but he didn't do much with them, turning them into just 39 total yards. His lack of involvement in the Lions offense keeps him from being an option in anything other than deep PPR leagues. Even there, he's not a desirable play this week, as the Lions take on a tough Minnesota team on Thanksgiving. The Vikings allow the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, making Riddick only a desperation PPR play.

Theo Riddick ties season high mark in carries in win over Chicago

Theo Riddick ran the ball nine times, which is the most attempts he's had all year tied only with Week 2. Strangely, he was all but absent in the passing game, recording just one catch for four yards.

Fantasy Impact

Detroit is making a clear effort to be more creative with their backfield. Riddick is running the ball surprisingly well, and Ameer Abduallah is making surprise appearances as a pass-catcher. Ultimately this is bad for Riddick, who will probably never out-carry Abdullah, and who is highly dependent on the passing game to be productive. He remains a handcuff at best.
