I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University where I studied Sports Journalism. Naturally I grew up an MSU and Detroit sports fan. Football and hockey are my two favorite sports, but I also enjoy college basketball. My dream is to do play-by-play for football. Originally from the small town of Morrice, MI and now residing in Grand Rapids.

While Theo Riddick doesn’t offer much fantasy value in terms of running the football, he is among the best in catching the ball out of the backfield as evident by his 697 receiving yards and league-leading 80 receptions among halfbacks last season.

It is possible Riddick could see more carries this season as veteran HB Joique Bell was released by Detroit during the off-season, combine that with new offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter who plans to use the versatile back in a variety of different ways including outside in the slot and Riddick could be a fantasy gem. Also for those playing in PPR (points per reception) leagues, Riddick is being drafted nearly 30 spots higher on average.
