Reggie Bush tops 100 yards and scores for fantasy owners

Matt Sullivan

The running back has been very valuable through most of this season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back had a big game Sunday, with 78 rushing yards, 57 receiving yards, and a receiving touchdown, as the Lions beat the Cleveland Browns 31-17. It was Bush's third touchdown of the season.

Bush has averaged more than 127 all-purpose yards per game this season, with 75.2 yards per game on the ground and 52.2 yards per game through the air. Backup running back Joique Bell contributed 25 rushing and eight receiving yards, leaving Bush as the obvious No. 1.

Fantasy impact: Bush has offered a huge return on his draft-day investment, his missed game in Week 3 aside. Even his quiet game - Week 5, with wide receiver Calvin Johnson out - still offered 69 all-purpose yards, hardly a disaster.

Bush is a clear-cut RB1 going forward, especially once Johnson is back to full strength and defenses have to account for his presence as well. As long as Bush stays healthy, Bell's value is diminished, but Bush's is huge.
