Lions believe that RB Theo Riddick will 'come along' in 2015

MLive - [Full Article]

Lions HC Jim Caldwell on RB Theo Riddick...

"We try and give (the ball) to the guys who are going to do something with it, and I think he's going to be one of those guys who's going to force us to give him the ball more," Caldwell said last week at the NFL owners meetings. "I think you're really going to see him come along."

Caldwell expects Riddick's role to grow next season, though that could depend on what kind of tailback the team adds in April's draft. Riddick is a plus-plus pass catcher out of the backfield, but hasn't shown any kind of chops yet on the ground -- yet.

"He has all the qualities. Here's the thing -- if you're smart, if you're tough, if you're disciplined, if you have a great work ethic, there's improvement ahead. And he has all those things. So I think he's going to improve, and I think he's going to force us to get him the ball a little bit more in some situations."

Fantasy Impact:

Reggie Bush’s departure should give Riddick the opportunity to shine as the team's primary passing down back. He averaged 5.0 catches for 53 yards for 13.2 fantasy points in PPR formats in the five games that Bush missed last season. That's about what Fred Jackson averaged as the #17 running back in 2014. If the Lions don't add a running back early in the draft, then Riddick should be a sleeper in PPR formats.

Scouting Report

Wild Card – Reggie Bush vs. Dallas Cowboys
In the loss to the Packers last Sunday, Reggie Bush totaled 41 yards on eight touches. In an injury-plagued season, he collected only 550 yards and two scores. Joique Bell will continue to receive the majority of the rushing attempts, but Reggie is still a weapon in the passing game. However, if you’re looking for a RB who will be playing a few games this postseason, you’re better off looking elsewhere.
