Huddle Up: Bush, who is currently the 16th RB being drafted, showed he was ready for the games that matter with an 86-yard scoring sprint in the exhibition win over the Jaguars last Friday night.

Huddle Up: The Lions do have a stable of backs so they don't need to overwork Bush in the preseason. That might also cost him a few looks on game day, but not to the point he won't still be an effective football player--both for the Lions and for fantasy owners.

Huddle Up: Something to keep in mind if you're holding Bush in a dynasty league. The fast track and Detroit's passing offense are good fits for Bush's skill set, and if he's able to stay healthy and stick around for a few more years in Detroit he'll continue to be a solid fantasy contributor.

Huddle Up: Bush had 277 touches this past season to Bell's 219, and if the above is true, it's basically shaping up as 50-50 split in the Motor City this coming season. Adjust your draft board accordingly.

Huddle Up: Bush was back after missing Week 14 with a calf injury and made his presence felt immediately with a 14-yard scoring run to cap the opening drive of the game. He left briefly in the third quarter, igniting fears that his calf injury had been aggravated but he returned and finished with his 8th 100-total-yard game of the season.

Huddle Up: Bush is expected to play but the fact that his game is on Monday night makes it a bit of a risk for fantasy owners. It's a tough call but expect Bush to be in the lineup and put up solid numbers this week, although Joique Bell is sure to see touches as well.

Huddle Up: It's a tough call for Bush owners because his game is on Monday night but Detroit beat writers have given him a strong chance of playing. Watch his status closer to Sunday but it looks like Bush will suit up and be a strong RB2 play against the Ravens this week.

Huddle Up: It hasn't been the best of postseasons for Bush's fantasy owners who saw the RB re-aggravate his injury in Week 14 pre-game warmups and then not play. See if the outlook brightens any Friday.
Posted: 12/11/2013 1:57pm ET
Huddle Up: He was expected to play last week before being a late scratch that might have ruined some lineups. Keep an eye on him.
Posted: 12/6/2013 6:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Bush may very well play, but go with another option or at least lower your expectations for the RB, who missed the Lions' Wednesday and Thursday practices.

Huddle Up: Bush's fantasy owners are thankful for the big holiday outing for the RB, who enjoyed his second-highest total yardage day of the season. He hadn't scored since Week 8. Bush's big day didn't come at the expense of backup Joique Bell, either, as Bell had 19 rushes for 94 yards and a TD and # catches for 34 yards himself.

Huddle Up: Bush's fantasy owners hopefully can dismiss it as a one-week disappointment and look for bigger and better things out of the RB over the next two weeks with Lions inside at Ford Field.
Posted: 11/19/2013 2:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Bush also lost a fumble and finished with his fewest touches (14) in a game this season in which he wasn't injured. Speaking of injuries, backup Joique Bell tweaked a knee in the contest and enters the week with a question mark next to his status. With that in mind and the Lions back inside this week at Ford Field, expect Bush to return to a full workload.

Huddle Up: The first game against the Bears has been Bush's lone 100-yard rushing effort of the season, but he's done more than all right otherwise and remains a must-start.
Posted: 10/26/2013 12:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Jones wouldn't be worried about Bush if he owned him on his fantasy team. The Cowboys have given up the 8th most points to fantasy running backs this year and are allowing backs to catch seven balls a game out of the backfield. Bush is in line for a huge game Sunday.
Posted: 10/25/2013 1:53pm ET
Huddle Up: A late-week injury is cause for a red flag, and his status for Sunday now is under question. We'd warn Bush's fantasy owners to stay on top of the situation but we know they will after this jolting news.
Posted: 9/28/2013 1:07am ET
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMS can return Bush to their starting lineups for an interesting matchup against the Bears. No. 2 back Joique Bell had a productive outing (132 total yards, TD) in Bush's absence Week 3, but there should be enough touches for both to be fantasy relevant Sunday.
Posted: 9/26/2013 8:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Count on having Bush back this week as he's been a full-practice participant for 2 straight days now.
Posted: 9/25/2013 5:54pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like he'll be playing this week, which dings Joique Bell's value. You could feasibly start both, however.
Posted: 9/23/2013 3:08pm ET
Huddle Up: This is good to hear going into this week. Joique Bell did his best Bush impersonation with a big performance, but he should be relegated to second banana when Bush is back, even if Bell still gets a lot of playing time.
Posted: 9/23/2013 9:19am ET
Huddle Up: It's believed the Lions were being overly cautious in holding Bush out of the Week 3 game with Washington, and Joique Bell played well enough to support the decision. If Bush lives up to his vow he'll be back atop the Detroit backfield pecking order this week with 60-75 percent of the touches.
Posted: 9/20/2013 5:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Bush goes down as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins and while he's likely to play after getting back on the practice field Friday, definitely expect fewer touches than normal -- and a bigger role for fellow RB Joique Bell -- if he does.
Posted: 9/19/2013 4:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Bush and Joique Bell owners definitely need to monitor Bush's status Friday. Keep in mind that if Bush does play Sunday, though, it'll likely be on a limited basis mitigating the values for both backs.
Posted: 9/19/2013 11:13am ET
Huddle Up: Bush left last week's game with a knee injury, and the Lions have Joique Bell if Bush can't play. But it sounds like the plan is for Bush to at least be available for Detroit's Week 3 contest.
Posted: 9/18/2013 7:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Bush will likely be a game-time decision this week. Bush owners should have another option ready to go this Sunday. If Bush is out, Joique Bell will be an attractive RB2 play against a struggling Redskins' defense.
Posted: 9/18/2013 1:45pm ET
Huddle Up: It would be surprising to see him sit this week, but this further increases Joique Bell's value. It's likely Bell will spell Bush more often against a terrible Redskins defense.
Posted: 9/18/2013 12:09am ET
Huddle Up: In the meantime, fantasy GMs have to work on the short-term basis, and until we hear otherwise, plan on Bush being absent Joique Bell getting the start in Week 3.
Posted: 9/16/2013 2:32pm ET
Huddle Up: This is good news, but given his injury history, it might be best to sell while you can. Joique Bell has looked great for the Lions, and Bush might have seen his best fantasy day in Week 1.
Posted: 9/15/2013 5:27pm ET
Huddle Up: It looked like Bush got punched in the knee. Hopefully this isn't serious, but Joique Bell is performing well in his place so far.
Posted: 9/11/2013 2:06pm ET
Huddle Up: He played through it rather well, but this is a good sign heading into Week 2.
Posted: 9/10/2013 10:29am ET
Huddle Up: We'll see how Bush holds up to multiple weeks of this workload, but if the Lions continue to spell him with Joique Bell Detroit should have a formidable backfield presence all season long.
Posted: 9/9/2013 10:25am ET
Huddle Up: We knew Bush would be a factor in the passing game in Detroit, but the 21 carries and 90 yards is a boost to the ground game as well. Nothing wrong with 191 yards from scrimmage.
