Summary

Theo Riddick is one of the league's best third-down backs. He has put together three-straight seasons of at least 53 receptions and has caught 14 touchdown passes over the past four seasons. Riddick has been mostly ineffective as a runner, however. His 3.4 yards per carry last season matched his career average and he has only five rushing touchdowns total in his five-year career. The arrival of Kerryon Johnson via the second-round of the draft also complicates the picture somewhat for Riddick. Johnson has the potential to emerge as an above-average pass catcher, which could limit Riddick's opportunities. In PPR leagues, Riddick does have some value as a late-rounder with a solid weekly floor who can be useful as a bye-week replacement or fallback option in case of injuries. (May 26)

Lions | Theo Riddick shows receiving skills (Fri Aug 17, 10:26 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick had one carry for six yards and caught three passes for 50 yards in a 30-17 preseason loss to the New York Giants Friday, Aug. 17.

Our View: Riddick continues to get it done as a receiver. Fantasy GMs in PPR leagues know what to expect from the seasoned veteran. He's got some 'flex appeal' in deeper leagues and right now Riddick is going off the board at RB60 (13.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.
