2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Jun-28-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Second-year back Theo Riddick had a great spring and most likely won the number three spot in Detroit. He and wide receiver Jeremy Ross were the young stars of minicamp. It is yet to be seen what Riddick's role will be, yet it is a safe assumption that if Bush or Bell are injured, Riddick will be a must-add in all league. With that opportunity (much like Joique Bell last season), Riddick would earn more playing time and possibly enough touches to merit the occasional start. Riddick is a sleeper in dynasty leagues as well. Although you're better off holding onto him for the time being as he'll have to wait his turn.

Latest Update

Nov-23-14 Report: Lions RB Reggie Bush unlikely to play Sunday, aiming for Thanksgiving return

Reggie Bush said earlier this week that he would play against the Patriots, but it sounds like he has pushed his ETA back a bit. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora said Saturday that he's "hearing" Bush will be a "no-go" for Week 12 in New England. Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported soon afterward that Bush actually has his eyes set on playing on Thanksgiving versus the Bears.
Bush has been bothered by an ankle injury since Week 5. He practiced in limited fashion throughout this week, but it appears he will miss his fourth of the Lions' last six games.

Fantasy Analysis:

Not that fantasy owners should be missing Reggie much at this point. He has just one touchdown and one game with more than 70 yards from scrimmage this year. His presence will pretty much wipe out Theo Riddick's fantasy value, but Joique Bell should remain Detroit's top RB. He was impressive in Week 11, gaining 115 total yards against the Cardinals, the team that has permitted the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs this season. He should be deployed as an RB2 in 12-team leagues versus the Patriots.
