2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After five mostly injury-plagued and somewhat disappointing seasons in New Orleans, Bush was traded to the Dolphins prior to training camp last season. Most pundits expected that Bush would continue to tease with his potential and fall short of the lofty expectations that accompanied him based on his outstanding college career, culminating in the Saints drafting him with the 2nd overall pick in the 2006 draft. Although Miamiís oft-stated objective was to make Bush a workhorse back, that was met with much skepticism given that the team had traded up in the 2nd round to acquire Kansas State product Daniel Thomas. Bush started the season slowly, gaining just 243 rushing yards, 97 receiving yards and scoring once in the teamís first six games. After that, he came on strong, rushing for 854 yards and six touchdowns while chipping in 199 receiving yards over last nine games. During that stretch, he topped 100 rushing yards five times, including his final four games, and hit double-digit fantasy points eight times. In 15 games (he sat out Week 17 with a knee injury), Bush set career-highs in rushing attempts with 217 (60 more than his previous high set in 2007), rushing yards with 1,097 and rushing touchdowns with six. The Dolphins scaled back his involvement in the passing game and he averaged fewer than three receptions per game for the first time in his career. For 2012, Bush rates as a risky high-end RB2 and it will be a surprise if he matches the 11th place running back ranking he had in 2011 given the new west coast offense being installed by head coach Joe Philbin. Expect Bush to be more of a hybrid back with less running up the middle or more time spent slit out wide as a receiver.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Reggie Bush still not practicing     -- Wed Dec 10 3:07 pm --

Tweaked ankle in week 13
ALLEN PARK -- Reggie Bush played a complete game for the first time in more than two months. Three days later, it looks like he's on the mend again. The tailback missed practice Wednesday as the Detroit Lions (9-4) began preparations for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings (6-7). Bush had eight carries for 26 yards Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, plus four catches for eight yards. He said he was happy to finally finish a game, but also said he tweaked his ankle, which probably is what kept him from practicing. (mLive.com)

FF Today's Take: Joique Bell has touched the rock over twenty times in each of Detroit's past three games. He should continue to lead the way for the Lions' rushing game as Reggie Bush nurses a sore ankle. Bush's fragile ways make him very risky to trust during the final weeks of the fantasy season.
Injury Reggie Bush expected to play in Week 14     -- Tue Dec 2 10:33 am --

RB's ankle good enough for limited practice on Monday
As is his custom, Lions coach Jim Caldwell didn't shed much light Monday on the team's four injured starters ó offensive guard Larry Warford (knee), defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee), running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and left tackle Riley Reiff (knee). Bush has been practicing and is expected to play this week. (Detroit News)

FF Today's Take: That's what they said last week, only to have Bush be a surprise inactive on Turkey Day. PPR maven Joique Bell is really the only Lions RB we'd trust in standard 12-team leagues.
Injury Reggie Bush not expected to play     -- Sat Nov 22 5:30 pm --

Ankle injury
Hearing Reggie Bush is a no-go for the Lions big game in New England Sunday. Not ready to go yet. Still working to get back (Jason LaCanfora via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bush's ankle injury has bothered him for the better part of a month. With Bush out, Joique Bell will become a viable RB2/FLEX option but he's only scored double-digit fantasy points in four games this year. Theo Riddick will also be involved in a pass-catching role out of the backfield.
Injury Joique Bell and Calvin Johnson miss practice     -- Wed Nov 19 4:33 pm --

Detroit offense faced with more injuries
ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions are struggling to get all their running backs healthy at the same time. After his season-best rushing performance against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday, Joique Bell didn't practice on Wednesday because of an ankle injury. The team also continues to take a cautious approach with All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle). (mLive.com)

FF Today's Take: Detroit's backfield has become a week-to-week carousel for fantasy owners this season. With Joique Bell (ankle) missing practice and Reggie Bush (ankle) limited, it is unclear who will receive the bulk of the work come Sunday. Meanwhile, Calvin Johnson owners continue to sulk as he now works his way through an ankle injury. In short, several of Detroit's fantasy weapons are banged up and you will need to check back later in the week to see who is able to suit up for Week 12.
Injury Bush Questionable, missed practice all week     -- Fri Nov 14 4:20 pm --

Unlikely to play
Reggie Bush spent the open portion of practice today working on the side with a trainer, and the Detroit Lions are holding out hope he can play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals (4:25 p.m., Fox). Bush, who aggravated a sprained ankle in last week's win over the Miami Dolphins, was listed as questionable. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: Bush didn't practice all week which is as good as sign as any that he won't play on Sunday. In his absence, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will handle running back duties.
Injury Reggie Bush may sit Week 11     -- Thu Nov 13 11:46 am --

Nagging ankle injury continues to be an issue
Caldwell said there's a possibility Lions sit Reggie Bush much like they did with Megatron to get that ankle right. Was a response to question. (Tim Twentyman via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bush's nagging ankle injury has made him unreliable as a fantasy running back. The last time he topped 50 total yards in any game was Week 4. If he does sit, Joique Bell becomes a low-end RB2 with Theo Riddick moving into FLEX consideration in PPR leagues.
Injury Reggie Bush limited on Sunday     -- Mon Nov 10 11:30 am --

Ankle injury continues to bother Lions' RB
Caldwell on Reggie Bush's limited role: "He just got a little nicked up during the course of the game so he wasnít able to do as much as heíd like". (Dave Birkett via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bush hasn't topped 6.5 fantasy points since Week 3. He continues to miss time on Sunday's because of a nagging ankle injury. As a result, he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Injury Calvin questionable, Bush doubtful     -- Mon Oct 27 7:45 am --

Lions excpted to be without two offensive stars
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson took part in his third straight practice today, but when he walked off of the field, he made no promises about his status for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons (9:30 a.m., Fox). "I'm getting right," he said. "Trying to get right." Lions running back Reggie Bush is doubtful for Sunday because of an ankle injury he aggravated in last weekend's win over the New Orleans Saints. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: Reading between the lines, Calvin Johnson will likely sit this week but he will be a gametime decision. The Lions play at 9:30 am Eastern tomorrow in London. If they sit, both players can use the bye week (9) to get healthy. Joique Bell is a solid RB2 with RB1 upside against a weak Falcons run defense.
Injury Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush inactive     -- Sun Oct 26 8:45 am --

Lions without two key components
The Detroit Lions receiver, Calvin Johnson, has been scratched for Sunday's game in London against the Atlanta Falcons, after testing out the ankle early at Wembley Stadium. He ran the perimeter of the field and a couple routes before shutting it down. Detroit will be missing offensive firepower outside of Johnson as well. RB Reggie Bush (ankle), TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot), TE Eric Ebron (hamstring), TE Joseph Fauria (sprained ankle), RT LaAdrian Waddle (brain) and QB Kellen Moore are the other inactives. (MLive)

FF Today's Take: With Johnson and Bush inactive Golden Tate and Joique Bell should be the leaders on offense today. Theo Riddick will play a complementary role to Bell.
Injury Reggie Bush misses practice Thursday     -- Thu Oct 23 10:00 am --

Ankle injury
Running back Reggie Bush sat out Thursday's practice with an ankle injury after sIt's a concerning downgrade for Bush, who told WXYT-FM before practice that he's "going to do everything (he) can to be out there on the field Sunday" after sitting out much of the second half of last week's win over the Saints. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: After watching Bush miss must of the fourth quarter due to his ankle injury, it will be hard for fantasy owners to trust Bush this week even if he does suit up. Joique Bell should do most of the damage out of the backfield against the Falcons.
Injury Calvin Johnson not likely to play in Week 7     -- Fri Oct 17 1:30 pm --

TE Eric Ebron also not expected to play
Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell indicated today that Johnson likely will miss his second straight game because of the right ankle injury he suffered in a loss to the Buffalo Bills earlier this month. Asked whether he expected Johnson to play Sunday, Caldwell said, "I've been surprised before because he's an unusual guy and, just talking to him at practice, he's feeling good and coming along. Miracles have happened." (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: In addition to Johnson, tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) is expected to sit as well. Golden Tate will once again be Matthew Stafford's top target in the passing game. RB Reggie Bush is expected to return this week.
Injury Lions' Eric Ebron, Reggie Bush limited in practice     -- Wed Oct 15 4:39 pm --

Theo Riddick re-aggravates hamstring strain
The Detroit Lions had six skill position players sidelined or limited for Wednesday's practice, including rookie tight end Eric Ebron. Ebron is a new addition to the practice report, missing a portion of the session with a hamstring injury. Also limited was running back Reggie Bush, who was returning to the practice field after missing all of last week with a twisted ankle. All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) remained sidelined and were joined by wide receiver Jeremy Ross (ankle) and running back Theo Riddick, who re-aggravated a hamstring strain against the Vikings. (mLive.com)

FF Today's Take: The injuries to Detroit's offense have sapped the fantasy value of Matthew Stafford and the passing game. If Reggie Bush is feeling good after a week of practice he and Joique Bell will be counted on to shoulder the load against a Saints team that ranks 16th in the NFL against the run with 112 rushing yards allowed per game.
Injury Calvin Johnson, Bush sit Friday, unlikely to play     -- Fri Oct 10 12:10 pm --

Lions could be without two offensive starters
Coach Jim Caldwell didn't want to make his decision known this morning, but after Calvin Johnson missed his third straight practice because of a high ankle sprain today, it seems highly unlikely that the Pro Bowl receiver will play for the Detroit Lions on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions also could be without running back Reggie Bush, who missed his third straight practice today with a sprained ankle. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: It looks like it will be the Golden Tate and Joique Bell show for the Lions this week. After being used a decoy the last two weeks fantasy owners can safely leave Johnson out of their lineups in Week 6. Joique Bell and Theo Riddick are expected to handle running back duties with Bush on the sideline.
Injury Lions could be without Megatron, Bush in Week 6     -- Mon Oct 6 5:05 pm --

Ankle injuries
Calvin Johnson aggravated an ankle injury against Buffalo and he could miss a week or two because of it. That would probably be a smart move by Detroit coach Jim Caldwell, because in 37 snaps two Sundays ago against the Jets and 28 snaps Sunday against the Bills, Johnson was invisible. Detroit also could be without Reggie Bush (ankle) Sunday at Minnesota. The Lions finished the game with a running back named George Winn on Sunday. Heís on his sixth team in 17 months, and the Lions may have to ride him until Bush and the concussed Joique Bell are ready to return. (SI.com)

FF Today's Take: Golden Tate would continue to serve as Detroit's leading receiver if Johnson is forced to sit, which appears likely. Joique Bell (concussion) was cleared for physical activity late last week and should tentatively be expected to be the lead back for the Lions when they travel to Minnesota in Week 6.
Injury Reggie Bush to see bulk of backfield work     -- Fri Oct 3 8:00 pm --

Joique Bell and Theo Riddick ruled out
Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell (concussion) has been cleared for physical activity but has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills (1 p.m., Fox). With Bell out, Reggie Bush will get the bulk of the backfield work against the NFL's No. 3-ranked rush defense. George Winn will be the backup. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: In addition to Bell, running back Theo Riddick (hamstring) has also been ruled out meaning Bush may be in a workhorse role for the Lions this weekend. He's a solid RB2 in Week 5.
Injury Joique Bell yet to be cleared from concussion     -- Thu Oct 2 5:25 pm --

Theo Riddick also sidelined with hamstring injury
Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell has yet to be cleared after suffering a concussion during Sunday's game against the New York Jets. Bell, who was in the locker room for a brief moment Thursday but was not allowed to talk to the media, has 48 carries for 152 yards and a touchdown this season. He also has nine receptions for 73 yards. He did not practice Thursday. RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) missed practice for the second day in a row as well. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Should Bell and Riddick both miss this week, the Lions would look to give more carries to Reggie Bush and use George Winn, who was brought up from the practice squad this week. Bell hasn't been overly productive over the last two weeks after scoring a touchdown in Week 1 and amassing 97 total yards in Week 2, but needs to remain on rosters. The Lions will face the Vikings and Falcons in Weeks 6 and 8, respectively.
