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-25-14 Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle/back) limited Tuesday

Lions running back Reggie Bush was limited in practice again Tuesday, nursing injuries to both his ankle and his back. Bush has missed three of the Lions past four games and four games on the season. He's been largely ineffective when he does play, rushing for just 191 yards and one touchdown on 53 carries. He's contributed just 26 receptions for 169 yards in the passing game.

Fantasy Analysis:

Plain and simple, Bush isn't getting it done. And, it doesn't matter what "it" is. Joique Bell is clearly the No. 1 running back in Detroit. No. 3 running back Theo Riddick has looked better than Bush when he's gotten to play. If Bush does play Thursday, he's a reach as a flex play. His main value is as a pass-catching back. In PPR leagues, he's averaging fewer than 10 fantasy points per game. That's just not something you want to rely on in Week 13, when most fantasy leagues are either into their playoffs or wrapping up the regular season, with playoff berths on the line.
