Reggie Bush injury update: Fantasy owners could be looking at a big week on Sunday

Gregory Shamus

Reggie Bush is fine for Sunday's huge game against the Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush is listed as probable to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday. He got a day off on Friday and his knee injury is more of an afterthought.

There aren't many more productive backs than Bush these days. He is coming off a 122-yard, eight-catch game against the Cowboys in Week 8, and he had a bye last week to help him get fresh.

Bush has 31 catches on the season for 335 yards in the passing game to go with 518 yards on the ground. What's more, he had 20 carries in each of his last two games with the Lions playing in close contests.

He went off against the Bears in Week 4 to the tune of 173 yards on 22 touches, including season highs of 7.7 yards per carry and 139 rushing yards, so good things are on the horizon again.

Fantasy impact: There aren't many better options than Bush this week. He's surged ahead of Joique Bell and the Lions have made him a primary weapon with Calvin Johnson. He's a must-start in even a two-man league.
