Fantasy Tip: Bush likely will have a role in on offense this week, but it is not known if he will be limited by the injury. Bush has a favorable matchup against the Minnesota Vikings this week and could be a cheap option on FantasyScore at $4,000.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has logged 12 of his 22 catches in the last four weeks, and head coach Jim Caldwell said he believes Ebron is starting to settle in at the NFL level. "I think he's a lot more comfortable with things," Caldwell said. "You can see that he doesn't have to think as much about the calls that are being made in the huddle and things of that nature, and that happens."
Fantasy Tip: Ebron still isn't worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore, but his numbers are trending in the right direction. Don't forget about him when next season rolls around.

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 12, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 15 game. LB Tahir Whitehead (shoulder) was limited in practice and is questionable. LB Josh Bynes (illness) and DT Ndamukong Suh (illness) both were limited in practice and are probable. CB Darius Slay (shoulder) and OT LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) both fully practiced and are probable.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson looks like he is just about back to full strength, and should have a nice return for FantasyScore owners this week against the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson will cost $8,000, and should be considered for your roster.

Fantasy Tip: Bush will cost $4,000 in FantasyScore this week, but he is a risky play as he continues to recover from injury. You should probably look elsewhere until Bush proves he is healthy.

The Detroit Lions brought in four players for workouts this week, including S DeJon Gomes (Redskins/Lions), CB Brandon Ghee (Titans), WR Skye Dawson (Buccaneers) and WR Colin Lockett (Bengals). Gomes and Dawson were eventually signed.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) and the coaching staff believe that he can return to form and be one of the most dangerous weapons out of the backfield. Bush has missed five games because of injuries this year, and he had just 12 touches for 34 total yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Theo Riddick didn't play at all, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said that was a one-game anomaly.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to say if Bush ($4,000) will be at full health before the end of the season. For right now, though, Joique Bell ($6,600) is the better play at FantasyScore, and Theo Riddick ($3,600) isn't a smart play with Bush back.

Fantasy Tip: Megatron ($8,000) appears to be close to full health at this point. Even at a high FantasyScore price, he shouldn't disappoint in Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($4,000) is expected to play against the Minnesota Vikings. He's probably nothing more than a shaky flex play as he continues to recover from injury, but the Vikes present a good opportunity to make a notable impact; they're giving up an average of 20.62 fantasy points to running backs this year.
