Reggie Bush totals 101 yards and a touchdown for fantasy owners

The Lions' featured back made the most of his touches versus a stout Ravens defense on Monday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Reggie Bush opened Monday night with a bang versus the Baltimore Ravens, but did not get much more the rest of the night.

Bush looked like his usual spry self on the game's first drive which culminated with an impressive 14-yard touchdown run. From there, the Ravens defense stood its ground, and Bush appeared to aggravate his injured leg during the second half of the game. He returned to action, but at a noticeably reduced speed. Despite that, Bush finished his night with 86 rushing yards, 15 receiving yards and the score.

Fantasy Spin: The story of the week will once again be Bush's health, which will likely have to be monitored again throughout the week. The good news is that his owners will not have to wait until 15 other games have been played before getting a definitive answer on his status. But with the Lions slated for a 4:05 p.m. ET start, fantasy owners with other running backs in the early games will have to cross their fingers that his status is not murky throughout the week. Should Bush get the nod, he will be a middle-of-the-road RB1.
