2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Well on his way to yet another 80-plus reception season, Riddick played in only 10 games last season due to not one, but TWO injured wrists. After off-season surgery, Riddck is back and ready to be a dominant PPR back once again. Despite missing six games, Riddick was well inside the top-10 in targets for running backs with 67. Basically serving as a de facto receiver for Detroit, Riddick's five receiving touchdowns paced NFL backs. With Abdullah back to full health, look for Riddick's rushing attempts to be nearly invisible, meaning his truest value comes in PPR leagues, where he is solid starting option. This offense, while improved, should still struggle getting the ball downfield, meaning there should be plenty of check-down attempts to keep Riddick owners happy.

Abdullah, Riddick to see field at same time?
RBs hope to create chaos in passing game
By: Doug Orth | Fri Sep 8, 2:50 am

Detroit Lions
In the only full game the pair played together last year, Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick combined for 228 total rushing and receiving yards, and scored three touchdowns in a season-opening win in Indianapolis. Abdullah suffered a foot injury the following week, and Riddick’s season ended prematurely as well due to a wrist injury. We could potentially see the two on the field at the same time more often this season. Detroit lists both players as starters. (DetroitLions.com)

FFToday's Take: Teams talk about doing this every year, and more often than not, the plan falls by the wayside. Given the Lions' current offensive makeup, it does make sense, however. Regardless, Abdullah is a very good bet to exceed 200 carries and push for 40-50 catches if he can stay on the field, making him a more-than-serviceable RB2. Riddick figures to get plenty of use in the passing game and should hold his own as a RB3/flex option in PPR formats.


200-plus carries for Abdullah?
Lions RB discussion
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 30, 7:00 pm

Detroit Lions
The Lions are going to give him (Ameer Abdullah) every chance to prove it as he begins training camp as the No. 1 running back on the roster. The Lions use a running-back-by-committee approach to their run game, but Abdullah is still expected to receive somewhere in the neighborhood of 200-plus carries as Detroit’s lead back. (DetroitLions.com)

FFToday's Take: This of course all depends on Abdullah staying healthy something he wasn't able to do last season, missing 14 games with a Lisfranc injury in his foot. With a low TD expectation and Theo Riddick expected to dominate third-down work, Abdullah's ceiling figures to be an RB2.


Zenner, Washington still 3-4 in Lions RBBC
Caldwell talks backup RBs
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jun 26, 7:00 am

Detroit Lions
Ameer Abdullah, who missed most of last year with a foot injury, is the team's starting running back, and Theo Riddick, who's still recovering from double-wrist surgery, has proven an effective role player. But Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington both showed promise in limited reps last year. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Abudllah and Riddick are the clear front-runners in the Lions running back by committee. Both Zenner and Washington had increased value late last season with Abdullah on the shelf with a foot injury. Zenner showed promise in the passing game and would have sneaky PPR value should Abdullah and/or Riddick miss time in 2017.
