Reggie Bush rebounds with 100 total yards for fantasy owners

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Lions running back proved his benching of a week ago was no long-term thing. We break down the fantasy implications.

A week after he was briefly benched, Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush returned to getting full-time play Sunday. He was obviously the Lions' primary running back in their 24-21 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bush ran the ball 15 times for 83 yards in Sunday's game, adding 17 receiving yards on four receptions. Whether his return to full-time play was more influenced by his own play or by injuries to No. 2 running back Joique Bell, Bush had nine more carries than Bell, with no other running back getting any touches in the game.

Fantasy impact: The game was Bush's sixth with at least 100 yards from scrimmage out of 10 this season. He still has only four touchdowns on the season -- and none since Week 7 -- but his strong yardage total has him ranked as a low-end RB1 or a high-end RB2 for the rest of the season.
