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 | Joique Bell limited

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:59:38 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bell is still expected to play and is priced at $6,100 on FantasyScore. He probably has more value in point-per-reception leagues in what could be a shootout against the Green Bay Packers.

Lions | Joique Bell leads RBs in touches

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 19:26:40 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell had team-highs with 10 carries and 36 yards in the Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Bell led the team's running backs with 16 touches, while Reggie Bush had eight touches, FB Jed Collins had two (and a touchdown catch) and Theo Riddick had one. It appears the team is trying to limit the wear and tear on Bush's body, and Bell is the biggest beneficiary of that caution.

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 | Joique Bell sitting

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 06:59:54 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is out of practice Friday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bell (knee) has been slowed by a knee injury in camp, but it's unknown if this was a simple day of rest or if his absence is pertaining to his knee. Bell is a solid RB3 and showcased RB2 potential last season in PPR leagues.

Lions | Joique Bell appears agile

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:19:21 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) missed organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp while recovering from a knee injury, but he looked good cutting and accelerating with ease during team portions of practice Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Bell appears to be slotted behind starter Reggie Bush for the primary job, so he should get his fair share of touches. He is a decent low-end RB2 or flex option, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). Bell needs to stay healthy to hold off a charge from sleeper Theo Riddick and holdover Mikel Leshoure, among others.

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 | Joique Bell expects to be ready

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:17:08 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) missed most of the offseason due to a knee injury, although he has said his condition is minor and he expects to be ready for the start of training camp next week.

Fantasy Tip: Bell gives the team one of the best 1-2 punches in the league with Reggie Bush. The duo became the first teammates in franchise history to join the 500/500 (rushing yards) club in the same season. Bell is a worth a look as a low-end RB2 flex fantasy option in most formats, with slightly more value in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).
