Reggie Bush has impressive fantasy debut with Detroit Lions

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Bush gashed the Vikings with 191 total yards and a touchdown on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Reggie Bush finished Sunday with 21 carries for 90 yards along with 101 yards on four catches and a touchdown. The new addition to Detroit's backfield is off to a very impressive start this season.

Running back Joique Bell was used in short-yardage situations and finished with 25 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Bell also hauled in five catches for 67 yards.

Fantasy impact: Bush not only proved his value as an offensive weapon for Detroit, he proved to fantasy owners that he deserves to be in discussions as an RB1 in most formats. Bush will continue to have tremendous upside in PPR leagues as long as he's healthy. He faces an Arizona defense that was 12th in fantasy points allowed to running backs last season.

Bell made a statement as a valuable handcuff that can produce even when sharing the backfield with Bush. He's currently owned in only 32 percent of Yahoo! leagues.
