2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Coming off a 2013 performance that included 50 catches, 8 TDs and nearly 1,200 total yards, Joique Bell inked a new three-year, $9.3 million deal this offseason. Bell makes up for his lack of measurables and elite athleticism by being a fundamentally sound and extremely disciplined football player—and on a team with elite passing weapons, sometimes that's enough to get the job done. Doing work as a runner and receiver, Bell has amassed back-to-back 50-catch seasons as a mostly change-of-pace running back. As the offense morphs into New Orleans North, expect Bell to fill the Pierre Thomas role in the offense. Keep a close eye on Bell's health as camp approaches—he has missed all offseason minicamps and OTAs with a lingering knee injury. Missing the early install of a new offense could get Bell off to a slow start, but expect him to approach and possibly surpass his ground numbers of 2013 (166-650-3.9), as he remains the Lions' best between-the-tackles and goal-line runner. With the additions of Eric Ebron and Golden Tate, Bell no longer remains Matt Stafford's first option in the short-passing game. If Reggie Bush remains healthy for 16 games, don't be shocked to see a slight dip in Bell's reception totals. With an uptick in touch totals, however, Bell makes for a decent option as an RB2, with a possibility for more should Bush miss any time.

Comment: Bush had more redzone rushing attempts than Bell last season but Bell was more efficient, scoring 36% of the time from inside the 20.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Joique Bell likely to play in season finale
Dealing with Achilles' strain
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 25, 7:30 pm

Detroit Lions
HC Jim Caldwell didn't offer any updates on the injury status of Joique Bell (Achilles). Asked if he'll play Sunday Caldwell said "we'll see". (Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This story gets a mention because the team's official website called Bell a full participant in practice on Thursday, suggesting Bell is on track to play against the Packers for the NFC North title. Assuming he is a full-go again on Friday, Bell should be expected for his usual 15-20 touches.


Injury Reggie Bush still not practicing
Tweaked ankle in week 13
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 10, 3:07 pm

Detroit Lions
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)

FFToday'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
RB's ankle good enough for limited practice on Monday
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Dec 2, 10:33 am

Detroit Lions
As is his custom, Lions coach Jim Caldwell didn't shed much light Monday on the team's four injured starters — 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)

FFToday'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
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 22, 5:30 pm

Detroit Lions
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)

FFToday'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
Detroit offense faced with more injuries
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 19, 4:33 pm

Detroit Lions
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)

FFToday'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
Unlikely to play
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 14, 4:20 pm

Detroit Lions
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)

FFToday'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
Nagging ankle injury continues to be an issue
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 13, 11:46 am

Detroit Lions
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)

FFToday'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.
