2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 11 ISSUES: THEO RIDDICK COULD BE USED EXCLUSIVELY IN SLOT FOR SUNDAY'S GAME GIVEN POTENTIAL MARVIN JONES ABSENCE

The Detroit Lions are heading into their Week 11 game versus the Carolina Panthers down a bunch of receiving weapons for QB Matthew Stafford as not only did the team trade away Golden Tate two weeks ago to the Philadelphia Eagles but Marvin Jones may not be able to go due to a knee injury.  With Jones having not practiced all week and also with the Lions having a short week for Week 12 due to their annual Thanksgiving commitment, it is likely the veteran will sit out which leaves the team's offense in a major bind.  Enter in pass catching back Theo Riddick who long has been a darling of the PPR crowd but who has almost zero impact as a pure runner.  With Tate having been traded, Riddick has seen 13 pass targets from Stafford the last two games and a Jones absence will likely make him an even bigger part of the offense in Week 11.  In fact, Riddick could work as the main slot guy in Tate's place this week and play on almost every snap which would add even more potential looks in the passing game from Stafford.  As a result, those who are down a key back this week due to all of the teams on a bye should absolutely take a look at Riddick given this development as there could be a very sweet payoff here for those in PPR.
