Fantasy Analysis | 1414346092
Theo Riddick a major factor in the passing game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The absence of Reggie Bush was supposed to lead to an increased role for Lions running back Joique Bell in Week 8, but things didn't exactly go as planned in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Bell had 16 touches Sunday, a solid number, but below his total of 20 from each of the previous two games. The Lions only ran the ball 23 times Sunday, which explains why Bell's role was smaller. However, he was mostly a nonfactor in the receiving game, which allowed reserve Theo Riddick to thrive once again in a larger role.

Riddick found the end zone for the second straight game, as he hauled in eight pass for 74 yards. He now has 149 yards on 13 receptions for two touchdowns over the last two games, after having no catches through six games to start the season.

After he hauled in 52 and 53 receptions in his first two seasons, we assumed Bell would once again figure heavily into the team's plans out of the backfield. However, he has caught more than two passes in a game just once this season, as the team has preferred to limit his role. He remains the primary running option and should be so moving forward. However, as long as Bush remains sidelined, Riddick is looking like a solid Fantasy player, especially in PPR formats.

Lions RB Joique Bell totals 61 yards in Week 8 victory
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell wasn't much of a factor in a Week 8 victory over the Falcons in London.

Bell ripped a 9-yard run on the opening drive of the second half for his longest gain of the day. He took 14 handoffs for 39 yards, averaging 2.8 yards per attempt. The team relied on Theo Riddick out of the backfield to catch passes, and as a result, Bell was limited to two catches for 22 yards on three targets in a 22-21 victory.

The Lions are on a bye Week 9 before returning Week 10 at home against the Dolphins.

Joique Bell getting plenty of work
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell played a huge part in Sunday's game against the Saints, as Reggie Bush continues to deal with injuries.

Bell carried the ball 18 times for the second straight game, and found the end zone yet again. He has two touchdowns over his last two games to go with 164 all-purpose yards, despite amassing just 3.4 yards per carry. At this point, it doesn't even matter how effective he is, Bell is still getting the job done for Fantasy owners based on volume alone.

The Lions' running game hasn't been great this season, but they have leaned pretty heavily on it nonetheless. If Bell keeps getting the carries, there is no reason to think he won't be a solid Fantasy option moving forward, but Bush's health may dictate that.

Joique Bell gets another 18 carries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell received 18 carries for the second straight week, and he scored for the second straight week too. Bell rushed for 48 yards in the win over the Saints, hammering in a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Bell caught two of his five targets for 19 yards and could have had a bigger day if not for a couple drops. Bell, who has three rushing scores this year, plays the Falcons in London in Week 8.

Lions RB Reggie Bush plans to play against former team Week 7
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Reggie Bush said he will "for sure" be healthy enough to play Week 7 vs. New Orleans after sitting out Week 6 at Minnesota due to an ankle injury, according to The Detroit News. Bush said after Sunday's game he plans to play against the team that drafted him second overall in 2006.

With Bush sidelined Sunday, the Lions rushed for 100 yards. Running back Joique Bell led the team with 74 rushing yards and one touchdown on 18 carries, while running back George Winn had 16 yards on five carries. Running back Theo Riddick had three carries for 6 yards, but he was more effective in the passing game before leaving with a hamstring injury, totaling five catches for 75 yards and one touchdown. Bell added two catches for 23 yards.
