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.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford had the worst completion percentage in his career in Week 12 against the New England Patriots at 39.1 percent), and the Lions haven't rushed for a touchdown since Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints. They are tied for 21st in the league with six rushing TDs all year. The Lions have been held without an offensive touchdown in the last two weeks for the first time since 2000. Detroit is fifth in the league in time of possession (32:11), 10th in passing yards per game (257.73) and 12th in yard margin per game (plus-29), but they are outside the top 15 in all other major offensive categories.
Fantasy Tip: It can't get much worse for Stafford and the Lions. Luckily, they face a Chicago Bears squad that has been generous to opposing QBs for much of the season. Stafford ($6,800) is a good sleeper option to break out in Week 13.

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.

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) did not practice Monday, Nov. 24. The Lions didn't practice Monday, so Johnson's designation is an estimation. Johnson has battled an ankle injury since Week 3, but he's played the last three weeks, although he remains less than 100 percent and hasn't reached 60 yards in either of the last two games.
Fantasy Tip: Megatron was held in check by Brandon Browner Sunday, and Johnson continues to disappoint those that have spent heavily on him at FantasyScore since returning from his injury. Have no fear, though, as he should get back on track on Thanksgiving day against a Chicago Bears defense that is friendly to wide receivers.

Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee), S James Ihedigbo (knee), LB Ashlee Palmer (concussion), OT Riley Reiff (knee) and OG Larry Warford (knee) did not practice Monday, Nov. 24. DE Ziggy Ansah (elbow), DE George Johnson (foot), CB Rashean Mathis (ankle) and S Glover Quin (back) were limited. The Lions didn't officially practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.

Detroit Lions C Dominic Raiola's cut block against the New England Patriots Sunday, Nov. 23, is being looked into by the league, according to Lions head coach Jim Caldwell. Caldwell said Raiola will not be punished by the team but could still face discipline from the league. Raiola attempted to cut block New England Patriots DL Zach Moore on the final play of New England's 34-9 victory.
