2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

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

Reggie Bush is coming off a 1,000-plus rushing yard, 500-plus receiving yard season. This is what we've come to expect from him. Bush is a very good fantasy back, but much more valuable in PPR leagues. It is looking like the Lions will be in a dual back system again with Joique Bell, which gelled during the 2013 season. Bush played well as the Lions' feature back, then Bell played well enough to earn a substantial amount of playing time. Expect Bush's numbers to be similar; although he may earn a few less carries while seeing a few more passes to further augment the 54 catches he had last year. His TD numbers will not be high since he is not an adequately-sized option in the red zone. When you have Calvin Johnson and three capable tight ends, undersized running backs don't get all that many looks. Bush is a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues and still has mid-range RB2 value in standard.

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.
