Lions | Reggie Bush finds end zone

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:02:16 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush ran seven times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, and he added six receptions for 44 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The 98 total yards from scrimmage was actually his second-highest total (99 yards was best in Week 3) of the season. That 99-yard performance came against the Green Bay Packers, the team's opponent in Week 17. He is a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in FantasyScore for next week's crucial NFC North battle.

Lions | Reggie Bush will dress

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 11:59:12 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is active for the team's Week 15 game.

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.

Lions | Reggie Bush questionable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 14:09:38 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is questionable for the team's Week 15 game.

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.

Lions | Reggie Bush remains confident

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 15:45:25 -0800

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.

Lions | Reggie Bush limited Thursday

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 15:31:23 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 10.

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.

Lions | No practice for Reggie Bush

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:02:42 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10. Bush ran the ball eight times for 26 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and also had four catches for eight yards. However, he tweaked his ankle again while playing a full game.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($4,000) didn't do much in his first game back, reminding us that it mike take some time as the team eases him back in. Joique Bell ($6,600) remains the better FantasyScore this week against the Minnesota Vikings, and you can pretty much ignore Theo Riddick ($3,600) when Bush is active.

Lions | Theo Riddick without a role?

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:45:09 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick doesn't have much of a role in the offense right now, because RB Reggie Bush is more valuable as both a runner and a receiver. Bush is averaging 1.1 more yards per carry than Riddick and has more speed than him, too. Riddick hasn't shown much ability as a pure running back, making the offense predictable when he's on the field. The Lions have run 25 times of Riddick's 133 snaps this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bush's return has really made Riddick useless for fantasy football owners; Riddick wasn't used at all in Week 14. Don't bother looking at him for $3,600 at FantasyScore this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. Bush ($4,000) should start being considered again as a flex option in PPR leagues like FantasyScore.

Lions | Reggie Bush, Theo Riddick probable

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:08:43 -0800

Detroit Lions RBs Reggie Bush (ankle, back) and Theo Riddick (toe) are probable for Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Riddick was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 5, while Bush practiced in full for the third straight day.

Fantasy Tip: Despite an excellent matchup against the Bucs, Bush ($4,900) isn't a smart play if he returns, due to his long layoff and the fact that he could be limited. Joique Bell ($5,900) is the one to play in this backfield in Week 14.

Lions | Reggie Bush says he's 100%

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 19:15:25 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) said he is "100% healthy" and will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Although it looks like Bush will return in Week 14, his role in the offense remains to be seen. He is too risky to use at FantasyScore.

Lions | Reggie Bush a full go again

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 13:46:16 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Until we see Bush ($4,900) active and playing meaningful snaps again in this backfield, both Joique Bell ($5,900) and Theo Riddick ($4,600) are better FantasyScore options this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Lions | Reggie Bush practicing in full

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:18:25 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: We've been warning you that the Lions aren't rushing Bush back. This could be the week he returns, however, and a full practice to start the week is a good sign. For a FantasyScore price of $4,900, though, Bush isn't a strong option, with Joique Bell ($5,900) and Theo Riddick ($4,600) still in the mix.

Lions | Reggie Bush expected back Sunday

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 07:08:05 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) has been doing some work in practice and is expected to play Sunday, Dec. 7, for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) would be a solid start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at a sneaky good price on FantasyScore.

Lions | Reggie Bush inactive

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 08:09:21 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive Thursday, Nov. 27, for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) is a decent RB2 on FantasyScore this week. Theo Riddick ($3,400; 6.8%) could be a value flex option as well.

Lions | Week 13 Inactives

Lions | Reggie Bush out for Week 13

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 07:09:43 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is out for Week 13 Thursday, Nov. 27. His ankle isn't responding well enough, but the hope is to return for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) and Theo Riddick ($3,400; 6.8%) will split work again. Bell has the edge because of his receiving skills, but Riddick could be a solid flex if the Lions try to run the time of possession game.

Lions | Reggie Bush questionable

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 13:48:34 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) was limited in practice for the third straight day Wednesday, Nov. 26, and is questionable for Week 13 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Bush could be another game-time decision tomorrow as the team practices caution with him. Bush ($4,900) isn't the most sound investment at FantasyScore, even if he plays. There's too much potential for disappointment here.

Lions | Reggie Bush also has back injury

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 16:44:07 -0800

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 25, with a back injury added to his status. Bush missed the last two games with an ankle injury. There was no further information on his back ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Bush has already said he'll play Thursday, Nov. 27, but the injuries could hinder him, especially since the back injury is a new development. If he does play, he could very well be limited and probably isn't worth the $4,900 gamble on FantasyScore.

Lions | Limited practice for Reggie Bush

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 14:01:19 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bush vows to return Thursday against the Chicago Bears. How many touches will he have if he comes back, though, with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick also being used? It's tough to say, and Bush probably doesn't justify his $4,900 FantasyScore price.

Lions | Reggie Bush says he'll play

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 12:10:28 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he'll be ready to play Thursday, Nov. 27, after missing Week 12 with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bush will still be splitting time with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick and could be on a snap count coming off the injury. He's a risky play at a price of $4,900 on FantasyScore.

Lions | Reggie Bush limited at practice

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 13:41:49 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited at practice Monday, Nov. 24. The Lions didn't practice Monday, however, so Bush's designation is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Bush was expected to return in Week 12, but he didn't. The Lions are being extremely cautious with his return, so it's unknown if he'll play Thursday against the Chicago Bears. If he does, his FantasyScore price is unlikely to be worth a lineup entry for your team.

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:29:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for Week 12 Sunday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option today, and Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) makes a risky flex option in Week 12.

Lions | Reggie Bush absent from warmups

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:03:50 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was not spotted during early warmups Sunday, Nov. 23, and he's unlikely to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option with Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) a fairly risky option in Week 12.

Lions | Reggie Bush likely out

Sat, 22 Nov 2014 14:30:25 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely out for Week 12 and is targeting the Thanksgiving Day game Thursday, Nov. 27, to return.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($5,400; 10.8% of your cap) is a decent flex option with Theo Riddick ($4,700; 9.4%) a lesser flex certainty in Week 12. The long layoff may give Bush a chance to return fresh in Week 13 and be more of a factor than he has been thus far.

Lions | Reggie Bush questionable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:05:48 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited for the third straight day in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and he is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a chance that Bush could miss his fourth straight game, but he said earlier this week that he expects to play. Bush remains risky at FantasyScore for $5,200, especially when Detroit has two other options that are fully capable of carrying the load.

Lions | Joique Bell, Reggie Bush limited

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:59:23 -0800

Detroit Lions RBs Joique Bell (ankle) and Reggie Bush (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. Bell did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Both running backs are expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 12. Bell ($5,400) should be the more trusted FantasyScore lineup option, though, and the Pats have allowed an average of 18.63 fantasy points to running backs. Bush costs slightly less than Bell at $5,200.

Lions | Reggie Bush on track to play

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 09:54:43 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he is on track to play against the New England Patriots in Week 12. He was not able to play in Week 11 because of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Bush is working his way back from his ankle injury, so he could be limited if he is active for Week 12. Bush costs $5,200 on FantasyScore but probably is a risky option because of the injury.

Lions | Reggie Bush limited at practice

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:53:10 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Bush expects to play this weekend against the New England Patriots, but the Lions have said that they don't want to rush him back. Theo Riddick ($4,700) should be a decent play if Bush doesn't suit up. It's hard to trust Bush ($5,200) at his price tag still.

Lions | Reggie Bush to return for Week 12

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:17:34 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he will return this week from the ankle injury that sidelined him last week. Bush said he hopes the week off will enable him to stay healthy the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bush has been a disappointment this season, but there is still a thread of hope for his value in point-per-reception leagues, even with Theo Riddick in the mix on passing downs. However, it might be best to wait and see with Bush this week to see how he fares coming off the injury.

Lions | Reggie Bush expected back next week

Sat, 15 Nov 2014 16:38:59 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is expected to return in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) hasn't been a good play on FantasyScore for most of the season. Maybe the time off will recharge his batteries and make him a useful commodity down the stretch.

Lions | Reggie Bush out Sunday

Sat, 15 Nov 2014 15:39:05 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) will be held out of the game Sunday, Nov. 16, in Week 11. RBs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will split time in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Bell ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) and Riddick ($4,300; 8.6%) are both fairly priced flex options on FantasyScore this week against the New England Patriots.

Lions | Reggie Bush questionable in Week 11

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 13:30:12 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) did not practice for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 14, but is questionable for Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: From all accounts, it seems like a long shot that Bush will play against the Cardinals. The Lions don't want to rush him back until he's fully healthy, and you shouldn't want him in your FantasyScore lineups this week.

Lions | Reggie Bush misses practice again

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 10:07:05 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed his third straight practice Friday, Nov. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Bush ($5,200) in all fantasy football leagues. It would be a big surprise if Bush plays this weekend. Joique Bell ($4,900) should see the majority of the workload against a stout Arizona Cardinals run D, and Theo Riddick ($4,300) will be involved in the passing game. Riddick could be the better play at FantasyScore, as the Cardinals have been vulnerable to pass catchers out of the backfield.

Lions | Reggie Bush not practicing Thursday

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:14:44 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Lions will be cautious with Bush and won't play him anymore until he's close to full strength. That means there's a very good chance he won't play against the Arizona Cardinals. Don't pay the $5,200 at FantasyScore to put him into your lineup.

Lions | Reggie Bush could sit out

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 10:52:06 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) could sit out in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($5,200) is not worth the risk for your FantasyScore lineups. Joique Bell ($4,900) and Theo Riddick ($4,300) will carry the load if Bush doesn't suit up. Riddick could be a sneaky play, since the Cardinals can be generous to running backs through the air.

Lions | No practice for Reggie Bush

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 11:54:11 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bush has been slowed by ankle issues in previous weeks, so be patient on this one to see how much work he gets in this week before you insert him in your FantasyScore lineup. Bush will cost $5,200 this week, but he may have trouble living up to expectations if he does play.

Lions | Reggie Bush sees light work

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 07:34:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush played just 19 offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 9, which was 28% of the offense. In contrast, RB Joique Bell played 67% of the snaps and RB Theo Riddick played 10% of the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Bush had four carries for 20 yards and one reception for five yards in Week 10. Clearly, he has been banged up, but one has to wonder if this is also part of his inevitable decline at the age of 29. Avoid him on FantasyScore until he becomes more involved in the offense.

Lions | Reggie Bush limited to five touches

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 13:59:28 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was active for the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was forced out early in the game when his ankle was rolled into by DE Jared Odrick. Bush was able to return to the game, but he was limited to four carries for 20 yards and one reception for five yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bush might have returned to 100 percent health after the bye, but it didn't take long for him to aggravate his injury. It is aggravating for fantasy owners, too, as he could be limited or out again. Stay away in FantasyScore leagues until he can play and make it through a full game without setbacks.

Lions | Reggie Bush probable against Dolphins

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:27:52 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable for Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Bush costs $6,000 at FantasyScore against the Dolphins. It's hard to say how Detroit will use Bush in his return, with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick seeing plenty of touches in his absence. A potential small workload makes it difficult to justify Bush's price this weekend.

Lions | Reggie Bush practices in full

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 14:28:23 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Bush is well on his way to returning to action in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins. However, he may not be the best option just yet for a FantasyScore price of $5,800. Expect Joique Bell and Theo Riddick to continue being mixed in.

Lions | Full practice for Reggie Bush

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 13:39:54 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($5,800) says he will play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 10. However, the Dolphins are one of the best overall team defenses this year, and Bush will likely split the workload with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick. Bush is a dice roll at FantasyScore.

Lions | Reggie Bush takes part in practice

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 14:23:48 -0800

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Bush received two weeks of rest for his ankle injury, so there appears to be a good chance for him to play in Week 10. Bush should be a starting option if he is able to play.

Lions | Reggie Bush inactive today

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:11:20 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is inactive for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4%) becomes an even better play on FantasyScore today. With Bush, Megatron and two tight ends out, he should have a heavy load.

Lions | Reggie Bush unlikely to play in London

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 18:58:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is expected to be inactive for the Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London, according to a source Friday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: With Bush likely to be sidelined, look for Joique Bell to have a big role Sunday, making him a tremendous FantasyScore play at $4,700 (or 9.4 percent of the cap).

Lions | Reggie Bush listed as doubtful

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 07:45:48 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is listed as doubtful for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($6,000; 12% of your cap) said he'd play, but this designation is concerning. There are a lot of factors in play as the Lions could be without their top three tight ends, and Calvin Johnson (ankle) is a question mark. He has struggled this season, and Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4%), Theo Riddick ($3,000; 6%) and George Winn ($3,000; 6%) have played well. The team has a bye next week and could opt to sit Bush. Our gut tells us he could play in a limited role. Either way, his price tag on FantasyScore is probably too high for the amount of risk.

Lions | Reggie Bush says he'll play Sunday

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 06:57:05 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed practice Friday, Oct. 24, but said he will play in Week 8 Sunday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($6,000; 12% of your cap) has struggled this season, and Joique Bell ($4,700; 9.4%) is making his presence felt. The number of injuries to skill-position players gives Bush an opportunity to produce. However, there are better $6,000 plays on FantasyScore this weekend.

Lions | Reggie Bush day-to-day

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 11:31:15 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle), who missed practice Thursday, Oct. 23, said he will do his best to push through his injury and suit up for the team's Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London. "The ankle's good -- just taking it day by day," Bush said. "I'm trying to do my best to just be smart, make sure I'm healthy. Obviously I want to be out there on the field Sunday, and I'm going to do everything I can to be out there on the field Sunday, but I'm also going to be smart about it, too, so it feels good , practiced yesterday, and we'll see how it goes today."

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as though Bush isn't making any promises for this weekend. He ran only four times for 10 yards but added five catches for 22 yards in the Week 7 win. There's a good chance Bush will be used in a limited capacity again this weekend if he's not 100 percent. Consider him a flex option, at best, at FantasyScore for $6,000 (12.0% of cap).

Lions | Reggie Bush sitting out

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:04:17 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Bush ($6,000; 12% of your cap) has had a very slow start to the season and has been limited to 10 rushes for 23 yards and seven catches the last two games. He has scored just once this year and is a very sketchy start on FantasyScore right now.
