2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After five mostly injury-plagued and somewhat disappointing seasons in New Orleans, Bush was traded to the Dolphins prior to training camp last season. Most pundits expected that Bush would continue to tease with his potential and fall short of the lofty expectations that accompanied him based on his outstanding college career, culminating in the Saints drafting him with the 2nd overall pick in the 2006 draft. Although Miamiís oft-stated objective was to make Bush a workhorse back, that was met with much skepticism given that the team had traded up in the 2nd round to acquire Kansas State product Daniel Thomas. Bush started the season slowly, gaining just 243 rushing yards, 97 receiving yards and scoring once in the teamís first six games. After that, he came on strong, rushing for 854 yards and six touchdowns while chipping in 199 receiving yards over last nine games. During that stretch, he topped 100 rushing yards five times, including his final four games, and hit double-digit fantasy points eight times. In 15 games (he sat out Week 17 with a knee injury), Bush set career-highs in rushing attempts with 217 (60 more than his previous high set in 2007), rushing yards with 1,097 and rushing touchdowns with six. The Dolphins scaled back his involvement in the passing game and he averaged fewer than three receptions per game for the first time in his career. For 2012, Bush rates as a risky high-end RB2 and it will be a surprise if he matches the 11th place running back ranking he had in 2011 given the new west coast offense being installed by head coach Joe Philbin. Expect Bush to be more of a hybrid back with less running up the middle or more time spent slit out wide as a receiver.

News From The Past 90 Days
Can Theo Riddick become the next Sproles?     -- Mon Jul 7 3:40 pm --

Backup QB believes Riddick will catch 50 passes in 2014
Who takes the role of Darren Sproles - the shifty, multifaceted running back who can run the ball and make plays as a receiver in the open field - in Detroit? Backup QB Dan Orlovsky has an idea. His bold prediction: Theo Riddick will catch at least 50 passes. ďThis kid, he wasnít covered a single time in OTAs and minicamp,Ē Orlovsky said. "If he doesnít have 50 catches this year, Iíll be surprised. Heís going to have opportunities and heís really talented at it.Ē (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: With two very adept receivers ahead of him in Reggie Bush and Joique Bell, Riddick appears to be a longshot to fulfill Orlovsky's prediction. However, New OC Joe Lombardi saw the three-back system work well in New Orleans and is reportedly installing the same offense in Detroit that the Saints use. Bush also stated earlier in the offseason that Riddick is a more complete back now that he was at the same age. Riddick has the skill set to be fantasy-relevant in 2014.
More snaps for RB Theo Riddick in 2014     -- Mon Jun 9 10:46 am --

Reggie Bush understudy receives praise from mentor
The shifty running back out of Notre Dame was drafted last season to be Reggie Bush's understudy. During his rookie season, Theo Riddick played just 49 snaps -- carrying the ball nine times for 25 yards and catching only four passes for 26 yards. Under new coordinator Joe Lombardi, Riddick could see increased snaps playing the Darren Sproles role from the New Orleans Saints' offense. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Riddick is going to have a hard time being fantasy relevant in re-draft leagues without an injury to Bush but he's a name to file away or take a flier on late in your draft. "He's far more advanced now compared to where I was as a rookie," said Bush. "I wasn't as good of a natural runner, it took me a couple years to get to that point and he already kinda has that. So, I'm sure you'll see him used a lot in the passing game this year and the running game."
Lions going up-tempo in 2014     -- Thu May 22 8:30 am --

OC Joe Lombardi bringing over pieces of Saints playbook
First-year Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, an offensive assistant with the Saints for seven seasons, said after he was hired that his playbook is a combination of ideas he brought from New Orleans, leftovers from the Lionsí last offense, and things Caldwell and others have added from previous stops. One tenet of the system, and something the Lions have stressed repeatedly in their off-season practices, is playing at a fast pace in order to control the tempo of the game. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: The Lions have the skill position players to shatter previous offensive team records if they can quicken the pace the way Chip Kelley did with the Eagles a year ago. Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Golden Tate can all be fantasy stars in Lombardi's new offense.
