2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-28-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Bell's strong play earned him substantial playing time and forced a two-back system in Detroit. Expect to see more carries (166 last year) and perhaps see the same number of receptions (53). He will split time with Reggie Bush. If Bush were to get injured (which would not be all that shocking), Bell could become a very capable RB1. The former Wayne State back has value in all formats, especially PPR. Bell is likely the league's best handcuff option for fantasy owners. He is also good enough to stick in the starting lineup every week.

Latest Update

Nov-25-14 Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle/back) limited Tuesday

Lions running back Reggie Bush was limited in practice again Tuesday, nursing injuries to both his ankle and his back. Bush has missed three of the Lions past four games and four games on the season. He's been largely ineffective when he does play, rushing for just 191 yards and one touchdown on 53 carries. He's contributed just 26 receptions for 169 yards in the passing game.

Fantasy Analysis:

Plain and simple, Bush isn't getting it done. And, it doesn't matter what "it" is. Joique Bell is clearly the No. 1 running back in Detroit. No. 3 running back Theo Riddick has looked better than Bush when he's gotten to play. If Bush does play Thursday, he's a reach as a flex play. His main value is as a pass-catching back. In PPR leagues, he's averaging fewer than 10 fantasy points per game. That's just not something you want to rely on in Week 13, when most fantasy leagues are either into their playoffs or wrapping up the regular season, with playoff berths on the line.
