Lions | Plan to use Reggie Bush more

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 14:49:55 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush has seen RB Joique Bell take more carries over the first two games of the season, but Bush is remaining patient as the team ranks 28th in the league in rushing yards (146) and 29th in yards per carry (3.04). Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is staying patient, too, as the running game was taken away in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers when they fell behind.

Lombardi said part of the plan is getting Bush more involved, and he would have had more touches against Carolina if they hadn't fallen behind. Bush has 10 fewer carries than Bell and has one more catch than Bell. Bush has just 2.7 yards per attempt on 15 carries this year, and Lombardi wants to see both totals increase. However, he also wants to make sure not to overuse Bush. The Lions envision using Bush in a designated tight end spot or close to the line as a receiver so that they can get him out in space.

Fantasy Tip: Bush will likely be overlooked by many at FantasyScore this weekend because of his limited production through two games. That is the kind of opening you may want to exploit against the Green Bay Packers, a team that should give Bush plenty of room to run and catch. He'll cost you $6,900.

Lions | Reggie Bush sees fewer touches

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 19:26:13 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was able to play in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers, but he had just six runs for 26 yards and two receptions for six yards. It appears the team is trying to spread the reps among its backs and trying to limit the wear and tear on Bush's body at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: Bush isn't off to a very good start, and he is well overpriced in FantasyScore based upon his production. Avoid using him until his salary lowers significantly, or his production increases.

Lions | Reggie Bush listed as probable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:53:24 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bush has the ability to help out in the running and passing game each week. Bush costs $6,500 at FantasyScore this week and may not be able to bring much of a profit to an owner based on his price.

Lions | Reggie Bush practices in full

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:43:47 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Bush is PPR gold, but the matchup against the stingy Panthers' defense might limit his big-play opportunities. Bush will eat up a healthy chunk ($6,500, 13.0%) of your FantasyScore budget, and he'll need a big game to reward on his price tag.

Lions | Reggie Bush doesn't do all drills

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:59:07 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was held out of portions of practice Wednesday, Sept. 10. Bush was seen with an ice pack on his left knee before practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bush's injury doesn't seem serious, but it's worth monitoring for a player that has been somewhat injury-prone. Joique Bell, already owned in most leagues, would see a value spike if Bush misses any time. For FantasyScore managers in Week 2, Bush may be heavily used, making him worth his $6,500 (13.0% of cap) price.

Lions | Reggie Bush had ice on knee

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 09:52:35 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was seen hobbling through the locker room with a bag of ice on his knee.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't necessarily mean he's in jeopardy of missing time, but keep an eye on it heading into Week 2. At $6,500 against the Carolina Panthers, his FantasyScore price may not be worth it if he's fighting a significant injury. Joique Bell ($4,200) would get a boost if Bush can't play.

Lions | Reggie Bush likely to sit

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 19:05:33 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush will probably sit out the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, as head coach Jim Caldwell plans to give his veterans some extra rest.

Fantasy Tip: Bush should be a big part of Detroit's rushing and passing attacks this year, making him a solid option as an RB2 in all formats with the potential to be a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Lions | Reggie Bush sits

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 12:29:48 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (undisclosed) did not practice Monday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: There was no indication that Bush is injured. This could just be precautionary. Bush remains an RB2 option with more upside in PPR leagues.

Lions | Reggie Bush works with receivers

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 20:21:21 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush ran routes with the receivers during individual drills Tuesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ran 88 total routes last season from either the slot or out wide, and that total could increase this year in the team's new offense. He is a valuable back in any format, but he is a borderline RB1 in PPR leagues.
