Denver Broncos RB Theo Riddick, a pending free agent, has been medically cleared after missing the entire 2019 season with a shoulder injury suffered in the preseason. He isn't expected back with the Broncos and will test the market.
Huddle Up: Riddick could be an intriguing 2020 PPR sleeper after missing 2019. He's still a year away from turning 30, and he averaged a productive 61.8 receptions per season during his final four seasons (2015-18) with the Lions.

Denver Broncos RB Theo Riddick (shoulder), a pending free agent, will rely on his resume in free agency after failing to play a regular-season snap in 2019 due to a preseason shoulder injury. 'Hopefully my resume speaks for itself and we go from there,' Riddick said. 'I know I'll be somewhere. ... You have to be open to everything and what (stinks) the most is that I'm a committed person and I wanted to show Broncos fans what I had and what I could do for this team and unfortunately, it didn't work out. Hopefully, the coaches still think highly of me and give me another shot.'
Huddle Up: Riddick will still be only 29 in May and had averaged 612.8 receptions over his final four seasons in Detroit prior to 2019. He remains in prime position to capitalize on the league's pass-catching running-back trend, and could be a 2020 fantasy sleeper depending on his landing spot and, of course, better health fortune.

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb), RB Theo Riddick (shoulder), TE Jake Butt (knee) and WR Tim Patrick (hand) are likely to return to practice next week, according to Mike Klis of 9News Tuesday, Oct. 15. Only two of the four will be able to be activated at that time.

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.
