2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Well on his way to yet another 80-plus reception season, Riddick played in only 10 games last season due to not one, but TWO injured wrists. After off-season surgery, Riddck is back and ready to be a dominant PPR back once again. Despite missing six games, Riddick was well inside the top-10 in targets for running backs with 67. Basically serving as a de facto receiver for Detroit, Riddick's five receiving touchdowns paced NFL backs. With Abdullah back to full health, look for Riddick's rushing attempts to be nearly invisible, meaning his truest value comes in PPR leagues, where he is solid starting option. This offense, while improved, should still struggle getting the ball downfield, meaning there should be plenty of check-down attempts to keep Riddick owners happy.

News From The Past 90 Days
Ameer Abdullah frustrated by lack of snaps
Lions RB not happy with reduced role in offense
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Mon Dec 18, 12:15 pm

Detroit Lions
Ameer Abdullah played just eight snaps and spent the majority of the second half on the bench even after newly-minted starter Theo Riddick got hurt. "It's definitely frustrating," Abdullah told the Free Press on Monday. "It’s definitely something that I just want to take in and do my best to grow from it. That’s it." Abdullah said he hasn't been given an explanation for why he lost his starting job, though he admitted last week that he hasn't played up to his standards this year. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: Lions coach Jim Caldwell refused to admit the obvious after Saturday's game that Abdullah had been benched, so with Riddick (wrist) questionable for Week 16 this definitely gives a bump to Tion Green, though it might best be a situation to avoid entirely.

Caldwell on if he expects Abdullah to play this weekend: "I do, as long as things keep trending in the right direction" (Dave Birkett via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ameer Abdullah continues to deal with a neck injury. He almost made it back last week but it appears a Week 15 return is likely where he would be a low end RB2/Flex option against the Bears. Abdullah's return would knock Theo Riddick back into a part-time role.


Injury Ameer Abdullah expected to sit
Because of poor play, not injury reasons
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 10, 7:30 am

Detroit Lions
#Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck, questionable) is not expected to play today, source said, though it's more for play than injury reasons. Detroit is trying other players to improve the run game. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Abdullah out of favor, expect Tion Green and Theo Riddick to handle the running back workload with Green getting most of his work on early-downs. Green posted an 11-51-1 line against the Ravens last week.


Injury Ameer Abdullah expected to sit, Riddick to start
Riddick in play in PPR leagues
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 3, 8:30 am

Detroit Lions
Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) is not expected to play today vs. #Ravens. Trying to spark their run game, Theo Riddick will be treated as the starter. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Abdullah missed practice Wednesday and Thursday and was limited on Friday. The Lions running game has been dismal this season but Riddick should see an increased role against the Ravens with Abdullah out. Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington should also see some action in the backfield
