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.

Theo Riddick the one to get in Joique Bell's way
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Lions running back Joique Bell ended up having the big game so many Fantasy analysts anticipated for him with Reggie Bush sidelined by a sprained ankle Week 6 at Minnesota, but it didn't start out that way. That's because Theo Riddick, who wasn't available in Week 5 because of a hamstring injury, played a big role out of the backfield.

He scored the Lions' first touchdown on a 9-yard catch-and-run just a few plays after turning in a 41-yard catch-and-run. He ultimately led the Lions with 75 receiving yards and probably would have had more than three carries if his hamstring hadn't acted up just before halftime.

That's when Bell took over. Of his 18 carries, 13 came in the second half. He ended up rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown and added 23 more as a receiver.

George Winn, who stole many of Bush's carries when Bell was sidelined by a concussion last week, wasn't much of a factor, but he did get most of his carries after Riddick left, finishing with five for 16 yards.

So even though Bell showed he could serve as an every-down back, the Lions showed they prefer to have a rotation of rushers regardless of who's able to take the field. With Bush already talking like he'll be back for Week 7 against New Orleans, Bell remains a fringy starter in Fantasy.

Lions' Joique Bell paves the way on the ground
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lions running back Joique Bell led the way on the ground Week 6.

Bell picked up 74 yards on 18 carries. He also made an impact in the passing game, catching two balls for 23 yards. Bell managed to find the end zone in the fourth quarter. With the Lions up by 10, Bell plunged in from 1 yard out. With Reggie Bush out, the club went with Bell as the main runner, and Theo Riddick as the third down option. 

Bell will look for more against the Saints Week 7.
