Reggie Bush is '50-50' for Week 3, fantasy owenrs should prepare to be without him

Jennifer Hilderbrand-USA TODAY S

Reggie Bush's knee injury could cost him Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

Lions running back Reggie Bush is "50-50" for Week 3's game against the Redskins.

He missed practice on Wednesday and is likely headed to be a game-time decision. Bush injured his knee in the open field during Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was on the injury report in Week 2 and chances are he'll be on the report just about every week, even if it's just as a probable designation.

Fantasy impact: Joique Bell has to be owned in every single league in fantasy. He's proven to be an RB2 even with Bush out of the lineup, so sans Bush, he would be a must-start guy. The Lions have been able to move the ball through the air, so Bush and Bell's value are a little more suited in PPR leagues. Still, even shallow standard owners have to pick up Bell. Bush owners shouldn't sell low and he should still be viewed as an RB2 at the very worst.
