Fantasy Impact: This shouldn't be too surprising given how Bush has been used in the past, or the fact that Joe Lombardi, former Saints QB coach, is now the Lions' offensive coordinator. Lombardi utilized Darren Sproles' good hands and quick feet in New Orleans, and could try to mimic that success with Reggie Bush in Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: 29 is getting up there for a back but many running backs are still productive at that age. Bush is also a unique case as he has never really been utilized as a big volume, 300 touch guy, reaching a career high in touches last season with 277 over 14 games. While no one is expecting a significant decline in production from Bush this season, the presence of Joique Bell is already built into his 34.8 ADP. Reggie is a pretty good selection as a RB2 and could challenge for RB1 status, especially in PPR leagues, should his health cooperate.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news for Reggie Bush. He enjoyed significant fantasy success behind this line last year and things only project to get better with the continued development of G Larry Warford, who graded out as PFF’s 14th best run blocker as a rookie, and the added depth third-round rookie C Travis Swanson should bring. I’d feel very comfortable going into the season with Bush as my RB2.

A wide range of possible outcomes depending on usage.
The New York Times | Aug 20th
A reduced passing back role likely with Bell getting the bulk of the early work.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 20th
We all know Reggie Bush will miss some games in 2014 due to injury, but when he is on the field he knows how to light it up from a fantasy perspective. He also gets a bump for PPR leagues and if you draft him just make sure to get his hand-cuff. Bell will probably get more carries this year than Bush so his upside is capped.

Bush should run less but he'll still have a monster role.

Bush is set up for another big PPR year with Lombardi at OC. I like Bell a little more based on his goal line work and similar receiving numbers.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 20th
With Joique Bell getting a hefty increase in salary, it's very likely that Bush will see a diminished role in 2014. I like him in PPR leagues but for standard, he will get less carries.

Finished among top 10 fantasy RBs in '13, and potential in DET remains ripe for a repeat
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
Bush has only 1,190 career rushing attempts and 426 career receptions. Even at 29 years old, he has enough tread on his tires to be a good fantasy player. The problem is that the Lions are going to use more two-back sets and Bell should lead the team in carries with Bush having a Darren Sproles type role. Bush is a better PPR option than he is in Standard Leagues.

upside is there, but you risk inconsistency and injury with Reggie
Legion Report | Aug 16th
New Detroit OC Joe Lombardi is preaching a faster tempo-ed offense this season. There’s a ton of weapons in Detroit with the newly acquired Golden Taint and recent emergence of Joique Bell. “It’s exactly the same,” claims ex-Saint, Reggie Bush, as Joe Lombardi brings the exact same Saints Offense to Detroit. Last season PT Cruiser (Pierre Thomas) caught 77 passes, which ranked 1st in the league, while Darren Sproles caught 71 in a limited role, which ranked 4th in the league. Reggie Bush won’t have the rushing attempts, yards or TD’s, but he has huge PPR value.

Reggie Bush should see a reduction from the 277 touches he received last year as part of the Lions offense, a number around 225 seems more realistic with Joique Bell expected to be the lead back in Detroit.

The Patriots have a fun offense. The Lions have a snappy offense, too. And both teams boast handy backs who can catch the ball. So when push comes to shove and you need some PPR running-back love (I can hear Andy Behrens booing), who are you looking to in the middle rounds? Shane Vereen and Reggie Bush are today's items to discuss, and Dalton Del Don and Scott Pianowski are doing the arguing. Stat...
