RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Although he's rarely involved in the running game, Riddick proved his value as a receiver last year, splitting targets almost equally with Joique Bell and Reggie Bush. He was a weapon out of the slot, leading all running backs with 2.45 receiving yards per route. Riddick's smaller size and lack of elite speed may typecast him as a change-of-pace back, but he does run with surprising power and burst, and has enough elusiveness to make tacklers miss in the open field. Bush's departure seemed like a boon for Riddick's 2015 prospects, but the Lions perhaps slammed that door closed when they drafted Ameer Abdullah, a back with better running ability and pass-catching skills than Riddick, to take Bush's place. Riddick should still see plenty of targets in Detroit's pass-happy offense, but he might need an injury ahead of him on the depth chart to get increased work.

2014

Riddick saw nine carries in his rookie year and scored his first career touchdown in Week 16 versus the New York Giants. This season will be much of the same for Riddick who will see minimal carries behind Reggie Bush and Joique Bell in the Lions' dynamic offensive attack.

2013

Riddick will be a reserve running back for the Lions in 2013.
