Denver Broncos RB Theo Riddick (shoulder) suffered a 'slight' shoulder fracture in the team's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, Aug. 8, and is expected to be sidelined for the next 6-to-8 weeks, according to league sources. Surgery likely will not be required.
Huddle Up: Riddick was in line to take away targets from the rest of the Denver running backs and even slot receiver DaeSean Hamilton, but that's likely on hold until at least Week 3 or 4 at the earliest. In the meantime, Riddick is nothing more than a end-of-draft flier in PPR leagues.

Free-agent RB Theo Riddick (Lions) will meet with the Denver Broncos, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Riddick still has some PPR appeal, but he'd have to land in a spot with a good chunk of playing time available to be more than an RB5 flyer.

The Detroit Lions released RB Theo Riddick Saturday, July 27. The move frees up $3.66 million in salary cap space and leaves $962,500 in dead cap.
Huddle Up: Riddick should be worthy of consideration as a late-round option in PPR fantasy leagues. He had 285 receptions during his six seasons in Detroit, including 61 catches for 384 yards in 2018.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick is expected to be released or traded this offseason, which would save the Lions more than $3.4 million, according to Spotrac.
Huddle Up: Kerryon Johnson will be featured in his second season and LeGarrette Blount will be tasked with the short-yardage and goal-line duties. It makes sense for the Lions to cut ties, but Riddick will be wanted somewhere. He's a valuable pass-catching back with at least PPR flex upside.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (groin) suffered a groin injury during Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 30. His return is listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: Riddick had four rushes for 24 yards and no catches before the injury. Zack Zenner and LeGarrette Blount will pick up the RB slack if Riddick can't return.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed eight times for 47 yards and added nine yards on two catches against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Riddick had a pretty good matchup for receptions but wasn't involved enough to matter for hopeful PPR gamers. Against Minnesota, he isn't a fantasy-relevant option in championship week.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed six times for 28 yards in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added four grabs for 30 yards.
Huddle Up: Riddick, Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount formed a three-headed monster in the backfield, filling in for the injured Kerryon Johnson. Riddick is only worth using as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in deeper PPR play.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick caught seven passes for 48 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 12. He also rushed for 12 yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Riddick has caught at least five passes in each of the last four games and probably will receive most of his touches in the passing game. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick has lined up in the slot 18 times since the team traded WR Golden Tate, which leads all running backs since Week 9.
Huddle Up: Riddick has 13 grabs for 96 yards the last two games combined. He's a sneaky flex option in PPR against the Carolina Panthers this week.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick didn't have any carries but he had six grabs for 60 yards on seven targets in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Riddick is good for fantasy owners as a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues, especially when the Lions are playing from behind, which is fairly frequent. He has considerably less value in standard play. The Lions host the Panthers in Week 11.
