Broncos RB Theo Riddick suffered a "slight" shoulder fracture in the team's preseason opener, insider Mike Klis reports. Riddick is expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks with the injury. That puts him back on the field in late September or early October, so Riddick figures to miss the first 2-4 games of the season. Of course, the missed time is an even bigger problem considering he just joined the team a week ago. Riddick isn't worth a pick in fantasy drafts.

The Broncos have signed RB Theo Riddick, who was cut by the Lions 5 days ago. Riddick offers very little as a runner but leads all RBs with 247 catches over the past 4 seasons. In Denver, he figures to battle RB Devontae Booker for a pass-catching role. Riddick has received a better pass-catching grade from Pro Football Focus in each of the past 3 seasons. Consider him the early favorite for the gig -- but Riddick isn't worth drafting in fantasy leagues right now.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Lions are releasing RB Theo Riddick. The timing of the move is surprising, but it follows offseason rumors that Riddick might be on the roster bubble. Riddick ranked 2nd on the team in targets last season (74) despite missing 2 games. He has averaged 4.4 receptions per game over the past 4 seasons. Riddick's departure raises the target ceiling for breakout candidate Kerryon Johnson.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press says he's "not sure [RB Theo] Riddick is a lock for the 53-man roster." That makes sense, given the crowd in the Detroit backfield and Kerryon Johnson's receiving ability. Riddick offers no upside as a runner and has been merely a fine player in the passing game. If he sticks in Detroit, Riddick will be a solid late-round PPR shot to take. But his uncertain status and low fantasy ceiling mean you should pass on him in current best-ball drafting.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (knee) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. His return is excellent timing with the departure of WR Golden Tate and his 9.9 targets per game. Riddick should step back into to a sizable role in the passing game, making him a low-end PPR option. His return also puts a dent in RB Kerryon Johnson’s target projection.

Injury Predictor

The double offseason wrist surgeries of 2017 didn't appear to affect him at all in season. They did, however, follow a 2016 ankle injury, a 2015 groin issue, a 2014 hamstring strain and a 2013 concussion. Riddick has missed 10 total games through 5 seasons, with 6 of those coming in 2016. He'll find his backfield at least as crowded as it's ever been in 2018, following the 2nd-round addition of Kerryon Johnson and free-agent LeGarrette Blount.
