2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Anderson is a tough nut to crack. After showing so little early last season with the Panthers, he was cut after Week 10, only to surface with the Rams and run like gangbusters over the final regular season weeks and into the playoffs. I'm sure fresh legs and an extremely favorable scheme helped, but Anderson looked so dominant that surely he could parlay that into a new deal. Well that never came to fruition, as Anderson's market was cold, and he had to settle for a one-year deal with Detroit. What makes things even more awkward is that the Lions preferred to sign a different Rams running back, Malcom Brown, but L.A. matched the offer. Despite the production last year, I don't believe Anderson has much in the tank, and as the Lions "Plan B" at best, it doesn't sound like the rest of the NFL believes he's return to his early career form either. I anticipate Anderson as nothing more than a guy that will soak up just enough carries to keep Johnson fresh. As he offers nothing in the passing game, he's a two-down plodder that will likely vulture a handful of touchdowns as well. In a nutshell, Anderson exists to drive Johnson owners crazy, and really doesn't deserve a non-handcuff slot on your roster.

Lions cut RB Theo Riddick
Making way for DL Mike Daniels
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jul 27, 9:00 am

Detroit Lions
The Lions cut the seventh-year running back on Saturday to make room for the addition of Pro Bowl defensive lineman Mike Daniels. The move is somewhat surprising, given his stature as one of the most productive pass-catching running backs in the league, but also expected, when considering his declining production with his escalating cap number. Detroit clears $3.55 million in cap space by moving on. (Mlive.com)

FFToday's Take: Theo Riddick has been a great option on third down for the Lions for years and a viable fantasy option in PPR leagues. The Lions feel comfortable with their top three running backs Kerryon Johnson, C.J. Anderson and Zach Zenner. This move gives a slight boost to Johnson's fantasy value who should see a few more targets now that Riddick has been released.
