Reggie Bush finds the end zone Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush turned in an effective game Week 3 against the Packers.

Bush picked up 61 yards on 12 carries. He scored the only offensive touchdown by the Lions during the contest. Bush also caught six passes for 38 yards. He was one of the few offensive threats for Detroit during the game. Bush averaged 5.1 yards per attempt, nearly three yards higher than Joique Bell during the game. 

Bush will take on the Jets Week 4.


Lions need to get football to Reggie Bush with 'more space'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said during his Monday press conference the team has to do a better job of finding ways to get the football to Reggie Bush and "with a little more space," according to the team's official website.

Bush has just 15 carries and eight catches through two games. He is averaging 2.7 yards per carry and 6.9 yards per reception. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry and 9.4 yards per catch in 2013.

"We’re going to find ways to get guys the ball," Bush said. "Coaches are doing a great job with that and we talked about that earlier (Monday)."


Reggie Bush does nothing in Week 2


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush did next to nothing in Week 2 at Carolina.

Bush had six carries for 26 yards and two carries for 6 yards on three targets. By comparison, Joique Bell had 10 carries for 36 yards and six catches for 61 yards on 11 targets.

Bush will try to rebound in Week 3 against Green Bay.


Reggie Bush good to go in Week 2


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) As expected, Lions running back Reggie Bush is active for Week 2 at Carolina. He was listed as probable on Friday's injury report and was able to practice in full Thursday and Friday despite a knee injury.

Bush split carries with Joique Bell in Week 1 but also caught six passes for 49 yards.


Reggie Bush probable Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush is probable heading into Week 2.

Bush was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury. He was able to practice in full the next two days, and will likely be good to go Sunday.


Reggie Bush gets in limited practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday as the team began preparing for Week 2 at Carolina.

Reggie Bush hobbling through locker room


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush hobbled through the locker room Wednesday with a big bag of ice on his left knee, reports the Detroit Free Press. However, it's not uncommon for Bush to look like that on Wednesday and play Sunday.

Detroit visits Carolina in Week 2.


Reggie Bush racks up 64 yards of total offense Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush made his impact more in the passing game in Week 1 against the Giants.

Bush got the first catch of the night, hauling in a short pass and taking it up the field for a gain of 12 yards. Joique Bell got the first handoff of the game. Bush was limited to 6 yards on five carries in the first half and finished the game with nine handoffs for 15 yards on the ground, averaging 1.7 yards per carry. He caught all six of his targets for 49 yards in a 34-15 victory.

Bush will seek more touches in Week 2 against Carolina. He was unable to score on the ground away from home last season.

Lions could use trio of running backs this season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Lions head coach Jim Caldwell hinted that the team could use Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick extensively this season, the Detroit Free Press reports on Saturday.

Reggie Bush and Joique Bell shared the reps last season. Bush earned 223 of the 389 carries between the two in 2013. Riddick, who only caught four passes last season, is expected to have a bigger role this season and is considered the best receiver among the group, per the paper.

"They're pretty versatile guys, to be honest with you," Caldwell said. "There are a lot of similarities. I think shuffling them in and out of there will give you a different view from a defensive standpoint because they give you a one-two-three punch that's pretty unique."


Reggie Bush seeking redemption against Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The last time Lions running back Reggie Bush faced the Giants, he coughed up the ball and watched Joique Bell score from the sidelines. He'll be seeking a bigger role this time around in Week 1 on Monday against the Giants.

Bush got the start in each of the first three preseason games but received less touches than Bell. In a Week 16 matchup against the Giants last season, he totaled 34 yards on 12 carries and two catches for 10 yards. His running mate had 154 total yards and a touchdown.

Running backs against the Giants averaged 17.12 Fantasy points per game in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which falls right around the middle of the pack.

Even if Bell poses a threat for more touches, Fantasy owners will likely still get enough production from Bush to make him a worthy starting option in Week 1. He should be starting in the majority of Fantasy formats heading into Monday night.

Lions sit out several starters for preseason finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) The following starters will not suit up for the Lions Thursday night against the Bills: Quarterback Matthew Stafford, receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, running back Reggie Bush, center Dominic Raiola, guard Rob Sims and tight end Brandon Pettigrew, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, cornerback Rashean Mathis, defensive end Jason Jones, safeties James Ihedigbo and Don Carey and linebacker Kyle Van Noy.

Reggie Bush back after two days of 'rest'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush returned to practice Tuesday after missing the past two days of practice due to "rest," coach Jim Caldwell told ESPN.com. Bush, 29, ripped off an 86-yard touchdown run Friday against the Jaguars.

Reggie Bush breaks free for 86-yard TD run


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush showed a flash of dominance Friday night against the Jaguars in exhibition play.

Bush broke for a 24-yard run on the first drive, which was called back because of a penalty. But that didn't faze him. He made a nice cutback and ripped an 86-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter. He was limited to only one half of work. He finished with two carries for 95 yards and a touchdown and was not targeted in the passing game.

Lions not concerned about Reggie Bush's lackluster preseason


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush has dropped two passes and is averaging 2.0 yards per carry on five rushes this preseason. Bush will get a chance to find his rhythm Friday against the Jaguars, though coach Jim Caldwell says he's not worried.

"You see we haven’t played him a whole lot, either, at this point," Caldwell told the Detroit Free Press. "But I’m not concerned about him and what he can do, what he’s capable of doing. He’s done it for so many years, year in and year out, he’ll do the same thing again this year. He’ll be a standout for us."

Reggie Bush, Joique Bell share reps with first-team


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Lions running backs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell shared reps with the first-team offense Friday night against the Raiders in Oakland. Both players were lifted after three series of work.

Bush ripped an 8-yard run on the team's first offensive snap. However, he finished the game with three carries for 7 yards. He caught two of the three passes thrown his way for 2 yards. Bell couldn't capitalize against Oakland's defense. He finished with three carries for 7 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Reggie Bush does little in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush was not needed for much of Saturday's preseason opener against the Browns.

Bush only worked the opening series with the first-team offense. He ripped a 4-yard run and lost a yard on his second and final touch of the night. He finished with two carries for three yards and was held without a grab despite being targeted once in the first series of offense.


Reggie Bush says he can play several more years


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush, 29, said there's no reason he can't play several more years. "I wasn’t taking a huge pounding early on in my NFL career," he told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I didn’t get a lot of carries. I wasn’t getting 20 to 30 carries. I was splitting time a lot. I think that kind of helped me in the long run. I went through my share of injuries, but I still feel pretty good."

Bush ran for 1,006 yards last year and caught 54 passes, his most since 2007.


Reggie Bush says new Lions offense same as the Saints offense


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Reggie Bush said Wednesday that the new Lions offense is "exactly the same" as the Saints offense he was used in back when he was in New Orleans. 

"The new system, like I said, I played in the system five years in New Orleans so all the terminology's pretty much the same to me," Bush told the Detroit Free Press. "We definitely have what it takes to be an explosive offense, just as we were last year. Just got to clean up doing the little things right and we'll be OK."

In five years with the Saints, Bush played in 60 games and averaged 34.8 rush yards and 35.7 receiving yards per contest with 29 total touchdowns. It remains to be seen if Bush will be used exactly the same way or if he'll continue to work as a traditional running back in addition to as a receiver out of the backfield.


The Lions offense is going to be awesome


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) So it appeared for weeks the Lions wanted to move up to select receiver Sammy Watkins from Clemson. Maybe they didn't offer enough to jump up to No. 4 like the Bills, who drafted Watkins. Or maybe they were hoping if they stayed put at No. 10 that an elite player would land in their lap.

That's what happened on Thursday night when they drafted tight end Eric Ebron from North Carolina.

Think about this offense now. Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and now Ebron. The only downside about this pick is Joseph Fauria loses all sleeper appeal, but we can live with that. He'll still score a few touchdowns, but Ebron could be a star.

You can't double cover him because of Johnson and Tate, and new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi comes from New Orleans, where Jimmy Graham was a dominant force. The Lions wanted an upgrade at tight end, and Ebron is the answer.

He should be considered a potential starter in all Fantasy leagues with a late-round pick, and he's a late first-round selection in rookie-only drafts. The Lions are going to be fun to watch in 2014. 


Lombardi: Expect split for Reggie Bush, Joique Bell


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) 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
(4/10/2014) 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
(3/27/2014) 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
(3/20/2014) 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
(3/11/2014) 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. 


Reggie Bush: Lions 'have to' re-sign Joique Bell


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) The Lions' Reggie Bush thrived in a backfield combo with Joique Bell last season. They were the first tandem in NFL history to each record at least 500 rushing and receiving yards in the same season.

Now Bush is urging Detroit to retain Bell, a restricted free agent. The Lions are expected to offer Bell a second-round tender or sign him to a long-term deal.

"I think that’s going to be important to get Joique back," Bush told the team's website. "He’s a great player. He’s going to be in this league for a long time. He runs hard. I think it’s going to be an important offseason signing for us. We have to get him back."
