Lions OC blames schemes for RB Theo Riddick's production

"I’m sure guys have their scouting reports and No. 25’s on there," Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter said. "He’s run a lot of routes over the years where he’s beaten guys and gotten open.

Fantasy Impact: 

Riddick has been a PPR savior the past three years, catching a combined 167 passes out of the backfield for a total of 1,384 yards and 12 touchdowns. Through four games this season he's averaging a paltry 3.5 receptions, 22.5 yards, and 0.25 touchdowns.
