Lombardi: Expect split for Reggie Bush, Joique Bell
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

It continues to appear that the Lions will use more of Joique Bell and less of Reggie Bush in 2014, reports the Detroit Free Press.

New Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi on Monday said both running backs have the chance to play a lot.

"I see these guys kind of having a split role and both being very productive," Lombardi said.

Both Bush and Bell totaled over 1,100 yards last year, with Bush getting 1,006 rush yards and 506 receiving yards. Bell had 650 rush yards and 547 receiving yards. Both had over 50 catches. 

Bell did his damage on 166 carries while Bush had 223.

Reggie Bush accepting of new workload for him, Joique Bell
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Lions running back Reggie Bush is fine with fewer snaps and touches this season. New head coach Jim Caldwell said he expected the balance between Bush and Joique Bell to change this season, especially since the playbook is based off of a Saints offense that utilized running backs as pass catchers a little more than most teams and as ball carriers a little bit less than most teams. 

"We had a pretty good rotation going last (season), so, you know, we did some pretty special things with that," Bush said according to ESPN. "It can only go up from there, even if the workload is less for both of us, that’s only going to help us toward the end of the season, help us to stay healthy and probably play a little bit stronger and better toward the end of the season."

Both Bush and Bell totaled over 1,100 yards last year, with Bush getting 1,006 rush yards and 506 receiving yards. Bell had 650 rush yards and 547 receiving yards. Both had over 50 catches.

Caldwell preaches 'balance' between Reggie Bush and Joique Bell
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jim Caldwell reaffirmed this week that Reggie Bush and Joique Bell won't be used "the exact same way" they were last season. The Lions head coach preached "balance" between the two, if only so they both get enough work. 

"They both can run, they both have power and they certainly can make you miss," Caldwell said. "[W]e have to just make sure that there's a balance there. You look at most teams that are effective in terms of the running game, they have a one-two punch. It gives us an opportunity at times to get some balance in that position and to make certain both guys can touch the ball enough -- that's key. Will we use the exact same system the way in which it was used previously? No. It's a different system. ... I don't think you're going to see something that no one's ever seen before with those two guys, but nevertheless I think there may be a little bit of uniqueness to it."

In 2013, Bush had 223 carries for 1,006 yards and four touchdowns along with 54 catches for 506 yards and three scores. Bell had 166 carries for 650 yards and eight rushing touchdowns with 53 grabs for 547 yards through the air.

Lions to lean on Reggie Bush, Joique Bell
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Lions plan to use both Reggie Bush and Joique Bell a lot in 2014, reports mlive.com.

"You're going to see some more two-back sets," team president Tom Lewand said. He added that they would mimic what New Orleans has done with deploying a multitude of tailbacks, and new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was with the Saints last season.

"I think you'll see some of that incorporated into what we do," he said. "What I really like about coach Lombardi and his approach -- as well as coach (Jim) Caldwell -- but coach Lombardi's approach is, 'Let's get as many weapons on the field as we can and try and use them strategically.'

"It's a very adaptable offense, and they want to use the talent and the guys that we have, not just one back at a time because that's what the personnel group calls for."

Bell and Bush were occasionally featured on the field at the same time last year, though those formations usually split Bush out at receiver.

Lions backfield has intriguing Fantasy value
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Joique Bell is deserving of a new contract with the Lions after a stellar third season. But it doesn't change the fact that he'll be part of a tandem with Reggie Bush heading into 2014.

The difference this year compared to last year is that Bell might get more rushing opportunities. One of the things that stuck out during new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's press conference earlier this offseason was that he planned to base the Lions' new playbook off of his old one in New Orleans. In that playbook we saw scatback Darren Sproles have a role while more physical runners like Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram fill in other roles. While there's no doubt Bush could handle plays between the tackles, the prevailing thought is that Bell would pick up a bit more of that physical work if Lombardi were to stick to the system he's been in.

And obviously, Bush has been known to miss time here and there -- Bell would be a ball hog in any games Bush would sit out, just as he was in Week 3 this past year (Bell rang up over 130 total yards and two scores). 

Bush is still the top runner in Detroit -- he simply has gamebreaking ability that Bell doesn't quite have. I'd expect him to be off the draft board by Round 3 regardless of format. Bell will have his roles and should serve as a good No. 3 Fantasy rusher. He's a must to pick up if Bush is an early-round selection for your squad. And I like Bell for your team even if you don't draft Bush -- think mid-rounds on him.
