Fantasy Impact: Bush didn't touch the ball much Friday night but he didn't need to, taking a first quarter carry through a major hole on the right side to the house. It is worth nothing though that the touchdown is longer than any he has ever scored in a regular season or playoff tilt. Bush has been relatively quiet this preseason but this should get the buzz going on him. He will still get plenty of run in the Lions' spread the wealth offense and is a solid pick as a high end RB2 in upcoming drafts.

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.

Entering his age 29 season, Reggie Bush is feeling young and spry in camp thus far and is ready for a full 16 game slate. (Source: Detroit Free Press)

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.

By Steve Myette, Lions Correspondent, Wed, Jul 23rd 12:36pm EDT beat writer, Tim Twentyman, reports that all five starters from last year’s offensive line will return this season. (Source:

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.

Bush has looked very good in the preseason, highlighted by an 86-yard touchdown run. Bell should lead the team in rushes, but Bush has flex appeal as a receiver.

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...
