Bush has resurrected his career over the last two years in Miami, and he'll be looking to add onto that with the Lions. He'll add a pass-catching element out of the backfield that's been lacking in Detroit.The artist formerly known as CJ2K hasn't come close to that 2,006-yard total he put up in 2009, but he's still gotten over 1,000 yards in every year of his career. Shonn Greene is in town to potentially steal a few goal-line carries, but the revamped Titans offensive line bodes well for Johnson.  
Staff Rankings
Fantasy Football Freaks
The Vikings are a top 10 run team, but he could still break 100 total yards working into the passing game.Not a fan, until he can string a few good games together. Brutal matchup.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Vikes are tough against run and he's been struggling inside. Hopefully he gets a lot of catches.CJ2k should get the ball a lot but this is a brutal road matchup to get things started.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Huge value in PPR Leagues. Dual threat and similar type player to Darren Sproles, only Bush moves to Detroit where his backfield isnít as crowded and he will have more attempts on the ground.CJ?K Ö With an improved O-Line, CJ has been running well this pre-season. His Jet-Packs are still unmatched.  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 Tennessee's improved offensive line finds itself in tough to start, against last year's stingiest defense to opposing RBs.  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Should easily eclipse 1,600 yards from scrimmage this season   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Vikings have a tough run defense and were ninth against fantasy running backs last year, but if DT Kevin Williams cannot play in Week 1, it would be a huge boost to Bush's projection this week.The Steelers were 4th against fantasy running back defenses, but they have the oldest starting defense in the NFL, so that could fall off this year. The Titans are also improved on the offensive line, I think Johnson is at least a low RB2 this week.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Reggie is exactly what this Lions offense was missing. An upgraded version of Jhavid Best. Reggie will thrive when safeties have to double team Megatron Deep, leaving so much space for Reggie on a screen pass. You may break your own ankles watching Reggie juke in Space all season long in this gun slinging Lions offense.CJ2K knows that Fantasy Football owners are quickly starting to doubt him. He is an inconsistent RB who will run for 40 Yards for 3 Quarters, then get a 70 Yard run in the 4th Quarter to give him a big week. Jake Locker has to show growth this preseason, and then CJ's value will rise. Shonn Greene is a big buzz kill for TDs. But you know CJ2K will make up for those plays in other ways.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
We saw Bush get tons of passing targets in preseason and that should be the norm during the regular season as well. The Vikings run defense remains one of the better units in the league, but they were near the bottom in allowing receptions and yards to backs last year. It will be tough stopping Bush from getting his through the air.Johnson had a good game against the Steelers last season with 23 touches for 114 yards, but he didn't score and Pittsburgh remains a tough place to play and will often get the best of opposing running backs. They only allowed two players to top 100 yards rushing all last year and gave up just 3.8 yards per carry.
