2010 Fantasy Outlook

For the first time in his pro career, Reggie started to run with purpose late in the 2009 season.  We’re not sure we can expect that to continue, but this offense is dynamic and puts up big points.  Therefore, even in his limited role, Bush can be a valuable fantasy contributor as a receiver and a runner.  Now that the bloom is off the rose in many circles, he can even be had at a price that represents fair market value, if not a discount.  With the way the NFL is moving, we like him as a relatively late RB if you stack up on WRs and a QB early.  Donʼt expect 1,300 yards rushing, but 1,300 total yards is not beyond the realm of possibility... if he stays healthy, of course (he had 1,307 total yards his 2006 rookie season).  Big bump up in PPR leagues.

Bush signed a six-year, $52.5 million contract in July of '06, of which $26.31 million was guaranteed and another $9.5 million available through incentives.  Even though the contract was back-loaded to avoid overpaying their injury-prone playmaker, the Saints decided to keep Reggie for at least one more year at $8 million anyway.  The remaining years are outlined below:

2010 - $8 million

2011 - $11.8 million

2012 - Free Agent

Injury Report


Reggie has missed a ton of time in the past, but it seems the Saints coaches have finally learned how to use his skills without over-extending him. Still, he'll always come with some sort of risk


Reggie Bush did not participate in practice today, according to Tim Twentyman, beat writer for the Detroit Lions. Twentyman via twitter reported "WR Calvin Johnson was back at #Lions practice today after sitting out Wed. RB Reggie Bush, G Larry Warford and DT Nick Fairley still out."

Pyro's take: Jim Caldwell talked openly about potentially giving Bush a rest for Week 11. If Bush is able to go Friday it will be key, for Sunday. He is trending toward sitting out, though which would mean an uptick in snaps for Theo Riddick.

Full Participant

Reggie Bush was a full participant in practice, and looks ready to go on Sunday.

Pyro's take: Even though this is a good sign for fantasy owners, it could be a mirage waiting in the wings, as Theo Riddick is going to get the rock, and absorb the chances for Bush. Keep an eye on this situation as it looks like a three-headed RBBBC in Lions camp.

Bush Free On Sunday

Reggie Bush is making the flight to London, and looking to play. "I'm fine," Bush said Tuesday before a community event at the University of Surrey, located about an hour from Central London. "I mean, I'm not 100 percent. But I haven't been 100 percent since high school. "Got rolled up on a few times and injured in the (Saints) game. But I felt fine after the game, though. Didn't have any setbacks, and that's the most important thing. Looking to just continue to progress every week. I'll be on the field Sunday."

Pyro's take: Reggie Bush is vital to the play of the Detroit Lions, and will be significant if Calvin Johnson is still out. Look for a solid game against Atlanta in London.

Bush, Megatron, Not at Practice Among Others

Dave Birkett, Lions beat writer, has stated on his twitter that there was no "Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush, Travis Lewis, Joe Fauria at Lions practice today. Joique Bell and Theo Riddick were back."

Update: The mentioned did not practice on Thursday either. Looking more and more like Bush and Johnson will either be game time decisions or out.

Pyro's take: The Lions are certainly breaking down, as key pieces such as Megatron, Bush, and Fauria were not practicing. It looks as though Calvin Johnson will be out, and perhaps Bush.

Keep in mind how this will effect Matthew Stafford if some or all these players are missing. Have Plan-B in mind as their definate statuses are unknown at this time.

Bush and space

Head coach Jim Caldwell wants to get the football to Reggie Bush "with a little more space," according to the Detroit Lions home website.

Bush has not been his typical self in the last two games, as he has a Bush has just 15 carries and eight catches through two games. He is averaging 2.7 yards per carry and 6.9 yards per reception. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry and 9.4 yards per catch in 2013.

Pyro's take: It is imperative that Bush is used in the correct way, what is concerning is that his large drop in yards per carry, as 2.7 gets someone benched quickly. Theo Riddick and Joique Bell could easily take over, but that is still ways away. Look for the Lions to get Bush the ball in more advantageous ways as they take on the Packers this Sunday.

Bush looking to stay productive

Bush is coming off one of the most productive seasons of his career, and a week into training camp he looks and sounds as determined as ever.

Last year, he rushed for 1,000 yards for the second time in three seasons, finished second on the Lions with 54 catches and had more offensive touches (rushes and receptions combined) than he has ever had in his career.

Of the 12 other players who topped 1,000 yards rushing last year, only one — Frank Gore — was older than Bush.

Bush signed a four-year, $16-million contract with the Lions last spring and said he plans to play at least the duration of the deal if not longer.

“I don’t want to put a timetable on it because I don’t know,” Bush said. “I don’t know if it’s five (years), four, three, six. I’m not sure. But I know if I get to 15 that’ll be a blessing.”

Pyro's take: Bush has played in the league for eight seasons, and is entering his ninth. Health had been an issue for Reggie earlier in his career, but he has only missed three games over the past three seasons. If Reggie ends up playing 15 seasons, I would be surprised, but I am only concerned about what he can do this year.

The addition of Tate and Ebron to the offense should help to take some pressure off of Bush. Reggie will need to do a better job in the receiving game this season. Last season he was targeted 80 times, but only had 54 catches. I am still confident that Bush will have a strong season, and is a solid RB2 in my mind.

Bush expects to play against the Ravens

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush said his strained right calf is feeling better and he expects to play Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

Bush was a late scratch for Sunday’s 34-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles when he aggravated an injury he first suffered in practice last week during pregame warm-ups.

Bush said he was jogging before the game when he felt his leg tighten. He retreated to the locker room to try and warm the muscle up, but wasn’t able to play.

“I can’t even sit here and lie and say I would have been able to push through it,” Bush said. “I couldn’t push through it.”

Asked if he expects to play against the Ravens, Bush said yes.

“It’s very frustrating because what was at stake, playing on the road and just being out there with my teammates,” he said. “It’s always hard watching from the sideline being a spectator. I hate it, so I look forward to getting back this week.”

Pyro's take: If you own Bush in fantasy and were able to survive last week, congrats. This week Reggie expects to return, but he will return to face a stout Ravens defense that is fourth best against running backs.

Reggie will have the benefit of playing at home, so there will no issue with the weather this week. Bush may end up doing more damage in the passing game this week, but if he plays this week he is a good RB2 option.

Biush misses second straight practice

Reggie Bush isn’t practicing, due to a calf injury that showed up on the injury report for the first time this week, but the Detroit Lions’ leading rusher is still working on his ball security.

Bush spent part of the open session of today’s practice with a football tucked into his arm, part of his response to the fumbling issues that have plagued him this season.

Bush, who has missed two straight practices, has lost three fumbles in the last five games and is among the league leaders in dropped passes.

“I’m just trying to get an edge and find any little bit of time where I can just constantly remind myself and making sure that I am correcting my mistakes and doing everything I can (so) whenever my number is called on Sundays that I am not going to turn the ball over,” Bush explained Wednesday.

Pyro's take: Bush has been dinged up all season, and now he is being limited by a calf injury he sustained in practice. Joique Bell has been taking the snaps in Bush's absence and could be in for a major workload if Bush is unable to play.

I still expect Reggie to take the field on Sunday, but if the calf acts up he could be limited. This is rough news, because if 100% this is a great match-up for him against the Eagles.

Bush sits out practice, but ready for the Cowboys

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush sat out practice today with a right leg injury, but Bush said his absence was “precautionary” and he’ll be fine for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys (1 p.m., Fox).

He’s listed as probable on the Lions’ official injury report.

“Feel good,” Bush said. “Just taking a day off, getting ready for the game on Sunday.”

Bush did not appear on the Lions’ injury report the last two days, but he walked slowly through the back of the end zone at the start of practice today with a wrap on his right leg.

Pyro's take: The Lions are being precautionary with Bush, which is smart, as he could be in line for a nice game against Dallas. Bush has been running the ball a lot as of late, with 37 carries over the past 2 weeks. Expect him to get between 15-20 carries and 6-8 targets in the passing game this week. Bush is a must start in this match-up.

Reggie Bush will play against the Bears

After missing Detroit's win over Washington in Week 3, look for Reggin Bush (knee) to return against the Bears. Bush is listed as probable.

Pyro's take: This is big news for Bush owners, as he should see a lot of action against the Bears. This news will also boost the value of Matthew Stafford, who know has a game breaker he can check down to. The return of Reggie comes just in time, as the Lions are dealing with losing Nate Burleson to some sloppy pizza and a median.

Reggie Bush expects to play against the Bears

The versatile Lions running back was back at practice Wednesday after missing Detroit's win over the Washington Redskins with the knee injury he suffered in Week 2, per the team's official website.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press wrote that Bush wore a sleeve on his left knee, but showed "no other signs of injury." It's a safe bet Bush will suit up against the Bears after pleading with coaches to let him play against the Redskins.

Pyro's take: The return of Bush has a major impact on the success of the Lions offense as well as a impact on Stafford and his fantasy production. Stafford needs to have Bush out there as an outlet for big screen and check down plays with his ability to break it for a big gain. The Lions have not had much success against the Bears losing 9 of their last 10 meetings, so you know they would love to have their free agent running back available to make an impact in this important early season division match-up.

Reggie Bush took a helmet to the knee

Reggie Bush took a helmet to the knee in the second quarter against Arizona. The helmet shot forced Bush to miss most of the second half. However, the knee injury isn't a long-term injury, coach Jim Schwartz said on Monday.

"The tests today were encouraging," Schwartz said. "He's going to be sore but he doesn't have anything that is going to be long term."

However, Schwartz was quick to note that "encouraging" test results don't necessarily mean that Bush will play on Sunday at Washington.

"It's too hard to speculate on injuries," Schwartz said. "That's why I usually don't."

Pyro's take: Reggie has been beaten and battered over the first two weeks of the season...welcome to Detroit and get used to it. It seems that the old injury prone ways are coming back to Bush. Matthew Stafford needs him out there and is so much more effective when he is, but the whole thing will fall apart if Reggie continues being Reggie.

If you are an owner of Bush, insert joke here, then you have to be concerned. He has shown that he can be dynamic in this offense, but he suffered a dislocated thumb and groin strain in week 1 and now a knee issue in week 2. Hold your breath and hope that since he is in Detroit they might be able to turn him into RoboCop.

Reggie Bush had a dislocated thumb and groin injury Sunday

Bush hurt his groin in the first quarter, a short time after he dislocated his thumb while trying to catch a pass.

“It was facing the wrong direction,” Bush said, via Justin Rogers of MLive.com. ”Thankfully I was able to just tape it up and carry the ball in my right hand.”

Bush said he felt fine throughout the game, but imagined that would cease to be the case once the painkillers faded out. There’s no indication that either injury will cause him any problems preparing for Week Two, though, so the Cardinals will need to keep looking for a way to stop Bush that the Vikings could not find.

Pyro's take: Bush was able to finish the game with both the injuries, which is a good sign as we head into week 2. Bush should be able to go on Sunday, and that is good news for his owners as he showed off in his first game with Lions. Bush is going to be a huge part of the Lions offense and a major reason why Matthew Stafford is going to have success this season. If Bush's situation changes we will let you know.

Pan down we want Bush!

The Miami Dolphins didn't pass the ball to Reggie Bush nearly enough the past two seasons. He rushed for 2,072 yards during his time with the Fins (an average of 1,000 per) - but he only caught 43 passes in 2011 and 35 last year. Rich Gannon thinks using Bush in the passing attack can really help keep the defenses honest against the passing and help the running game as well:

“It may be a number of different things they do: running the football a little bit more, the increased use of the back with Reggie and the screen game,” Gannon said. “That’s an area I think they can be really, really good, because that’s one area I thought he was underutilized last year in Miami. … But all that can take some of the edge off the pass rush.” -Gannon

Pyro's take: I expect Reggie to do big things for the Lions and have his finest fantasy season in the Michigan city that just filed for chapter 11. If they throw him the ball as often as Brees did (he caught 88 passes his rookie season), and they continue to use him as a traditional RB like Miami seemed to... this guy will get a D-cup sized motorboat load of touches. For a player that will go in the 8-12 round area in 10 team league drafts, there is a lot of upside for Reggie - we know he has all the skills when healthy and the Lions are a team that is ready to win now and really need a guy like #21 to step in for the failed Jahvid Best experiment.

Bush embracing leadership role and already has Lions playbook down pat

Reggie Bush, who signed on to be the Detroit Lions starting running back this past offseason, has not only learned the Lions' entire playbook, but is already being looked to as a team leader despite being a new face in Detroit.

Pyro's take: According to veteran wide receiver, Nate Burleson, Bush has "still got the wiggle" and that "he's over-exceeded what I expected." Though Reggie has always been one of the NFL's most talented athletes and should be able to excel in the Lions passing game, his fantasy value may be slightly capped due to the goal-line presence of Mikel Leshoure and the Lions having one of the toughest schedules against the run this season.

Bush suffers minor hamstring pull

Saints coach Sean Payton said on Monday that running back Reggie Bush did indeed pull his hamstring Saturday night, but that the injury was mild and he expects him to put in his work this week in practice.

Pyro's take: Ahhh, it's nice to have something you can count on in the world of fantasy football such as the ever-growing list of Reggie Bush injuries. Reggie may be an asset to the Saints high-flying offense, but he's no more than an undependable flex for your fantasy team every week.

Reggie Bush limited on Thursday

Saints RB Reggie Bush (knee) was limited at practice on Thursday.

Pyro's take: He's in the doghouse right now, so don't expect much out of him unless Mike Bell can't make it out there this weekend. His fantasy football value would still not be more than as a flex however... just a little bit better of a flex.

Saints running back Reggie Bush (knee) has been declared active and will take on his normal role against the Redskins today.

Bush limited again on Friday

Saints running back Reggie Bush (knee) was limited at practice again on Friday and is listed as questionable on the team's Week 13 injury report. However, Bush went out of his way to say that "You can write it down: I'm playing."

Pyro's take: Well, that's what you said last week too Mr. Kardashian, so we'll believe it when we see it. If he goes, he's at best a flex play on your fantasy football squad.
