Reggie Bush either a good or bad start
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Believe it or not, the Bills have been stellar against the run this season, allowing just 71.5 yards per game, third-fewest in the league, and 2.9 yards per carry. And because they have yet to allow a touchdown on the ground, they've given up the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs this season.

Which makes Week 5 an especially tricky one for Reggie Bush owners. The Lions are hosting the Bills, and Bush, with his shared role with Joique Bell, has certainly failed to deliver with more favorable matchups this year. But Bell is recovering from a concussion and may not play at all Sunday. Considering Bush got the lion's share of the workload after Bell went down in Week 4, he may be looking at a feature role.

Would the matchup negate the increased workload? In Bush's case, I'd say know. He's still one of the best at catching the ball out of the backfield, which should make up for any struggles he'd have running the ball.

Of course, this is all hypothetical. If Bell is able to play, the two will likely split carries as usual, and with this matchup, that's not an appealing prospect. Keep an eye on the situation.

Lions down to two healthy running backs
by Larry Hartstein |

The Lions might need to promote running back George Winn from the practice squad or sign a free agent because they currently have two healthy running backs, Reggie Bush and fullback Jed Collins, reports the Detroit Free Press. Joique Bell is recovering from a concussion, while Theo Riddick and Montell Owens are dealing with pulled hamstrings.

All three were knocked out of Sunday's win over the Jets. Lions coach Jim Caldwell has not provided any updates on the injured trio. Detroit hosts Buffalo in Week 5.

Reggie Bush's role a concern
by Chris Towers |

Lions running back Reggie Bush played 58 percent of the team's snaps in Week 4, but was nearly a nonfactor in the running game through the first three quarters.

Bush had just three rushes for 6 yards through the end of the third quarter, when Joique Bell exited the game with a head injury. Up to that point, Bell had eight carries to Bush's three, not a great given how much success Bush found the previous week. He made up for it with a nine-carry, 40 yard showing in the fourth quarter, but the first three leave real questions about how the team views his role.

If Bell is unable to play in Week 5 against the Bills, the questions will be moot. But, Fantasy owners have to be concerned about Bush's relative lack of workload, especially in non-PPR leagues. He has 39 carries through four games, a total he bested by a decent margin a year ago, when he had 61 carries through the same period.

We knew Bush would be ceding playing time to Bell this season, but the level so far has to be disconcerting. With Bell healthy, Bush hardly looks like a starting Fantasy option most weeks.

Reggie Bush racks up 65 yards of total offense
by Igor Mello |

Lions running back Reggie Bush outplayed Joique Bell in a Week 4 win over the Jets on Sunday.

Bush got most of his load in the fourth quarter after Bell went down with a concussion. He finished with 12 carries for 46 yards, averaging 3.8 yards per attempt. He caught four of his six targets for 19 yards.

Bush has 148 yards on the ground and 112 receiving yards through four games. If Bell is unable to play, he'll likely have to shoulder the load against the Bills at home in Week 5.

Reggie Bush set to run into a tough matchup
by Chris Towers |

Lions running back Reggie Bush's Fantasy owners had to have been overjoyed to see him finally break through with a big performance in Week 3. Unfortunately, a repeat performance seems very unlikely with the Jets on the Way in Week 4.

Bush finally saw more of the field than Joique Bell last Sunday, and that might be a trend that keeps up going forward. However, even if his role continue to expand, the Jets won't give him many opportunities to take advantage of that, as they come in with a ferocious run defense.

The Jets have allowed just 55 yards per game on the ground, on a league-low 2.8 yards per carry. That isn't just a small-sample size fluke, either, as they were the league's stingiest team in yards-per-carry allowed a year ago, at 3.4. This team dominates at the line of scrimmage and has allowed just one 100-yard rusher since the start of the 2013 season.

Bush's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield saves him from irrelevance, but both Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg still have him as more of a low-end No. 2 back for Week 4.
