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.

Theo Riddick expected to be limited at OTAs

ESPN's Michael Rothstein doesn't expect Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick (wrist) "to do much" at OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

Riddick is recovering from offseason wrist surgery (on both wrists) and is expected to be limited at OTAs -- the Lions have a history of "slowly bringing back established players" from injury, per Rothstein. If Riddick is good to go by August, the team will have "no reason to be concerned" about his health moving forward. The 26-year-old running back is currently slated to enter the 2017 season as Detriot's primary receiver out of the backfield behind presumed starter Ameer Abdullah.
