Reggie Bush RB DET 23 Days
Bush had six receptions for 49 yards and nine carries for 15 yards in Monday's 35-14 win over the Giants.
Bush was slightly out-touched by Joique Bell, who got seven of his 15 carries in the fourth quarter while the Lions were protecting a multi-score lead. After catching four passes in the fourth quarter, Bush was surprisingly quiet for the rest of the night, unable to get anything going on the ground. Running lanes will be hard to come by in Carolina on Sunday, but Bush still figures to top his 15 rushing yards from this week.

Bush carried twice for 95 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Jags.
Bush's night didn't last long, as he zoomed past the Jags' defense for an 86-yard touchdown, and then handed things over to Joique Bell. The Lions really seem to like Theo Riddick, who could perhaps steal a few touches from Bush and Bell. There are suddenly quite a few mouths to feed in this offense, but there's also been speculation that Bush could see a more targets this season.

Bush gained three yards on two carries and failed to catch his only target in Saturday's preseason opener against the Browns.
Bush got the start and the first touch, while Joique Bell was worked in on the starters' only drive. The Lions used one formation featuring both Bell and Bush, but that probably won't be a huge part of the offense this season, with Golden Tate and Eric Ebron joining Calvin Johnson and Brandon Pettigrew in the passing game. A report back in April suggested that Bush could trade some of his carries for receptions under new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi.

Both Pierre Thomas (77) and Darren Sproles (71) caught more than 70 passes out of the backfield for the Saints last season.
New Lions OC Joe Lombardi was a Sean Payton understudy the previous seven seasons and is bringing the exact same offense to Detroit. "It's exactly the same," ex-Saint Reggie Bush said. While Bush's carries will likely be reduced, his catch total should experience a spike from the 54 balls he reeled in last year. Joique Bell also has great hands out of the backfield. Bell is going to see the biggest fantasy bump. Both backs should be PPR assets in 2014.

Reggie Bush told Profootballtalk's Mike Florio that he wants to play five more years in the NFL.
Bush has been in the NFL for eight years now. Playing 13 seasons is extremely rare for running backs nowadays, but Bush's versatile skill set gives him an outside chance at accomplishing the feat. "I feel good at this point, obviously I'm saying that because I'm not getting hit right now," Bush said with a laugh. "I still feel like I can go, I don't know how many years left, god willing I can play at least another five years." He turns 29 in March. Marshall Faulk played until he was 32. Fred Jackson will be 33 1/2 when the 2014 season starts.

Coach Jim Schwartz claimed Reggie Bush wasn't benched for his latest fumble in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
Schwartz is averse to speaking the truth when talking to the media. Bush was clearly benched after losing his fourth fumble of the season, as Theo Riddick was getting crunch-time carries behind beastly feature back Joique Bell. We won't have to deal with these antics too much longer as Schwartz is expected to be fired following the Week 17 finale against the Vikings. The Lions have dropped four of their last five games, choking away a NFC North title.

Reggie Bush rushed for 86 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries in Monday night's Week 15 loss to the Ravens.
Bush added two catches for 15 yards on four targets out of the backfield. He didn't seem to be too bothered by the calf injury that forced him to miss last week's loss to the Eagles, though Bush did appear to tweak it a bit late in the third quarter. He stayed in the game. Bush's longest run went for 19 yards, while his touchdown went around left tackle for a 14-yard score. He walked into the end zone untouched. Bush should be ready to roll as an RB1 in a home date with the Giants during fantasy Super Bowl week next Sunday.
