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.

Lions | Reggie Bush feeling spry

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 23:22:01 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush is 29 years old and about to enter his ninth NFL season, but he does not feel old and wants to play many more years. "I don't want to put a timetable on it because I don't know," Bush said. "I don't know if it's five (years), four, three, six. I'm not sure. But I know if I get to 15 that'll be a blessing." The coaching staff has done a careful job of managing his repetitions, with several other viable running backs to help shoulder the load, according to running backs coach Curtis Modkins.

Fantasy Tip: Playing six more years in the NFL might be a stretch, but Bush could see his career extended because of his receiving skills. The veteran back may have a spot in the NFL as a situational player beyond his current deal, which has him under contract through the 2016 season. Value Bush as a low-end RB1 in deep PPR leagues, but he is a much better second back in 2014.

Lions | Mikel Leshourse expected to compete

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:18:56 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure is currently believed to be the fourth tailback on the club behind RBs Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick heading into training camp and the preseason, but general manager Martin Mayhew expects Leshoure to compete for snaps. The team will use an offense similar to the New Orleans Saints, and they occasionally used a fourth tailback.

Fantasy Tip: Leshoure has tumbled down the depth chart due to a rash of his own injuries, and the production of others while he was off the field. He appears to be in the plans still, but ever so slightly. From a fantasy perspective, he should be avoided on draft day unless injuries to others dramatically alter things during training camp and the preseason.

Lions | Teammate high on Theo Riddick

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 12:03:12 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush indicated he believes RB Theo Riddick will have a role in the offense this upcoming season because he is hard to cover in passing game. Riddick could receive more snaps this season, because offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi could use Riddick like RB Darren Sproles was used with the New Orleans Saints.

Lions | Reggie Bush won't return kicks

Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:40:22 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush has no plans to be considered for kick or punt returns in 2014. "As of right now, no," Bush said. "And hopefully, no. I'd like to think I graduated from returning kicks and punts," Bush said. WR Jeremy Ross will continue to be the man for kick and punt returns.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably best that Bush stick to running back duties to preserve his body for the long haul in a new offense that he could see a lot of action in.

Lions | Reggie Bush wants to retire in Detroit

Thu, 22 May 2014 23:07:32 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush would like to extend his playing career past the 2016 season, and he would like to retire in Detroit if at all possible. "I don't want to bounce around from city to city, from team to team. I think I have something good going here, have been really getting to know the city over the past year and just really looking forward to bringing a championship here someday and making history," Bush said.

Fantasy Tip: While Bush may see his workload decrease a bit with Joique Bell, a hometown product from Wayne State, getting carries, it is not out of the question Bush could have a few productive seasons left. Provided he doesn't come down with fumble-itis, he's worth consideration.

Lions | RB playing time expected to stay same

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 11:08:17 -0700

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said RBs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell likely will receive similar workloads this upcoming season than they did during the 2013 season. Bush played 54 percent of the offensive snaps in 2013 while Bell participated in 49 percent of the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Bush and Bell likely will be offensive factors in 2014 as long as they are able to stay healthy. Both could be considered No. 2 or No. 3 running backs for owners this upcoming season based on the matchup.

Lions | Reggie Bush to see smaller load

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 07:33:29 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he is fine with a potentially smaller workload in 2014. RB Joique Bell is expected to cut into Bush's workload more this season.

Fantasy Tip: Bush's value could begin to plummet this season at the age of 29. He still remains a good RB2 in PPR leagues, but Bell is starting to emerge. He's a good RB3 with potential for more.
