Week 3: at Green Bay Packers

All RB vs GB

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Ameer Abdullah suffered a foot injury and has been placed on Injured Reserve. Abdullah had been teamed up with Theo Riddick all season long, and Riddick has played well in his chances (18/82/1 rushing (4.6 yards per carry) with 10 targets for 9/91/1 receiving so far). With Abdullah out, Dwayne Washington (4/31/0 rushing at Tennessee last week) is expected to step into the Detroit committee of backs - on Monday, September 19 head coach Jim Caldwell stated 'He was productive obviously on the carries that he had and I think he's coming along. I think without question he's certainly capable of giving us some unique production in his way because he's a little different type of back.' Look for Riddick and Washington to carry the load this weekend. The Packers' rush D has been stonewalling opposing backs so far this year. To date they are first in the NFL averaging 39 yards rushing allowed per game, with just one rushing score handed over. Minnesota eked out 22/30/0 rushing vs. Green Bay last weekend. This is a bad week to be invested in the Detroit runners, though Riddick is a dual-threat back who catches the ball well out of the backfield.
