2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Back to playing in 16 games last season after an injury riddled 2016, Riddick did his thing, catching 53 passes and being the Lions pseudo running game with his short route running. The 53 grabs were a far cry from his last healthy season in 2015 when he caught 80. Entering his 6th season in Detroit, Riddick will be called on far more infrequently as he's been in the past. With the additions of Blount and Johnson, and the current existence of Abdullah, Zenner and Washington, Riddick can settle back into his 3rd down/hurry up role on the offense as a reliable outlet for Stafford. He holds very little value in standard leagues and end of the roster depth in PPR leagues.

Lions fine with Kerryon Johnson's puny workload
Patricia thinks rookie RB getting 20 of 55 snaps is a "good amount"
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 2, 10:47 am

Detroit Lions
Kerryon Johnson played just 20 of 55 offensive snaps in the Lions' 26-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, five fewer than third-down back Theo Riddick and six more than veteran LeGarrette Blount, but the Lions HC isn't bothered. "I think we have a lot of really good running backs and I think we try to use them appropriately," Patricia said at his Monday news conference. "I think Kerryon played a significant amount of the game. He played 20 snaps of 55, that’s a good amount. Plus, we have two other running backs, plus we have two-minute drives and other two-minute personnel packages and things like that. There was quite a bit of reps in there for Kerryon." (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Kerryon Johnson probably won't be a bell cow anytime soon, and based on Patricia's super "Belichick-ey" statement here it appears his upside will be limited to RB3/flex the remainder of the season. It's a shame, because he's been the team's most effective back through four games.


Kerryon Johnson heading up committee?
Lions will let rookie RB's role "develop" through early season pl
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 4, 8:20 am

Detroit Lions
The Lions are expected to use a running back by committee approach to their backfield. OC Jim Bob Cooter liked the "trajectory" of rookie Kerryon Johnson in the preseason, and will let Johnson’s role develop and define itself based off the rookie’s play early on in the season. (DetroitLions.com)

FFToday's Take: LeGarrette Blount will serve as the goal line back and get some early down and short yardage carries, while Theo Riddick is almost exclusively reduced to a passing down role. The rookie is teh back to target as he projects the most upside.
