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)
