Reggie Bush: Fantasy football superstar when healthy

Gregory Shamus

What knee injury? Reggie Bush is on fire in the first half of Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

Reggie Bush returned from his Week 3 inactive game with flying colors in the first half Sunday, totaling 112 rushing yards on 11 carries, three catches for 24 yards and a score. The Lions put up 30 points in the first half and lead the Bears by 17 at the half.

Bush sat out Week 3 due to a knee injury, but he's been putting on a full array of moves in the open field against Chicago. The USC product has been given the ball in space all season long and he's shaping up to be one of the best acquisitions of the offseason.

The running back's TD run was one of the best runs of the season thus far. He avoided several Bears, including a hurdle over a diving would-be tackler.

Fantasy impact: After Week 1's explosion, it was no secret that Bush had some serious upside in fantasy leagues -- especially in PPR leagues. Teams can't put eight in the box because of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, who requires almost constant double-teams. Bush is going to be ranked as an RB1 every week for PPR as long as he's active.
