2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
After Reggie Bush was released it looked like Theo Riddick was on his way to a big upgrade in playing time. But then the Lions drafted Ameer Abdullah in the second round, and once again Riddick finds himself scrounging around for touches. Riddick was much more receiver than runner in 2014, as he amassed nearly double the amount of receptions (34) to carries (20). This isn’t a surprise considering Riddick was a receiver early in his college career. There will be a role for Riddick on this team, as the Lions have utilized him as a slot receiver and passing down back early in OTAs. Despite targeting their runners the second-most in the league last season, that opportunity won’t be nearly enough to translate into fantasy relevance. I’d certainly keep Riddick on my “free agents to track” list, as it’s certainly possible Bell has physical setbacks or Abdullah struggles as a rookie, but for now he doesn’t hold much value.

News From The Past 90 Days
Abdullah has caught Stafford's eye in OTAs
Rookie RB has "great hands" and "good feel for route-running"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 8, 5:15 pm

Detroit Lions
It’s tough this time of year to see the true impact rookie RB Ameer Abdullah will have on the Lions’ offense in 2015. The team drafted him in the second round of the draft last month to be a big-play threat in their offense and potentially a return man on special teams. Without pads, it’s tough to truly measure his ability, but count QB Matthew Stafford in as an early fan. “I think as a runner he has great balance,” Stafford said after a recent OTA practice. “He’s obviously a low-to-the-ground guy. He seems to hide pretty well behind there and he’s got good vision. Out of the backfield, catching the ball, he’s great. He’s got great hands. He has a good feel for route running." (detroitlions.com)

FFToday's Take: Joique Bell has yet to participate in on-the-field activities this offseason as he continues to rehab from surgeries to his knee and Achilles, opening the door for Abdullah to take some first-team reps along with third-year back Theo Riddick. The No. 54 overall pick is slated to be the team's primary kick returner, but it seems only a matter of time before he is leading a backfield committee given his competition. Abdullah should easily hold flex value in fantasy leagues this season.
