Reggie Bush determined to play this week, should be ready for fantasy action

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Lions running back let his owners know he plans to play this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush (calf) says he expects to play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15, according to a report by David Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Bush suffered his injury warming up for the team's game against the Philadelphia Eagles last week.

Fantasy Impact: It's completely understandable that a player would tweak a muscle on a field filled with snow and that's exactly what happened to Bush last week.

Bush has plenty of time to rest up for the Ravens now as the game is on Monday Night Football. When you add that to the fact the game is indoors in Detroit, Bush should feel comfortable and be ready to go for the game barring a setback.

He's added a dimension to the Lions rush attack that they haven't had in years and is always a good bet to produce because he's a solid pass catcher too.

That said, no team has allowed fewer fantasy points to rushers than the Ravens. That's something to consider as the fantasy post season continues on.
