Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush has dealt with some ups and downs throughout the year. Week 16 was a down, and he coughed up the ball yet again, which may have proven to be the difference in a tough loss. The Lions fell by three to the New York Giants, and they cut Bush's touches down to just 14 following an average of 21 touches over his previous three games.
Bush vowed to stop fumbling after he lost the ball against the Pittsburgh Steelers back on Nov. 17, but Week 16's goof was the second time he's broken that vow. Hopefully, the Lions coaches will give him another chance.
Fantasy impact: The Lions get a great matchup for their offense when they travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings. They are 26th in fantasy points allowed to running backs and are giving up touchdowns left and right. What's more, Bush was tremendous in their last meeting, totaling 90 rushing yards, 101 receiving yards and one score on 25 carries. There is a little risk to using him here, but fantasy owners can't resist this kind of matchup. He's a must-start player.
