Joique Bell's Long-Term Fantasy Value After Reggie Bush's Injury
Joique Bell could soar from intriguing flex play to a regular starter if Reggie Bush can't stay on the field.
The Detroit Lions' brittle starting running back exited the game with a knee injury during the first half. He returned to cough up a fumble deep in scoring territory before heading back to the bench.
According to Michigan Live's Kyle Meinke, Bush said that he "probably shouldn't have gone back in."
Any injury news cannot be ignored considering Bush's history. During his seven-year NFL stint, the 28-year-old has logged a full 16-game slate season twice.
If the knee ailment hampers Bush, Bell is in prime position to become a major fantasy asset. Last week he caught five passes for 67 yards while pounding home two touchdowns on goal-line carries. In Sunday's 25-21 loss to the Cardinals, Bell registered 31 yards on eight carries while catching five passes for 41 yards.
There's room in Detroit's offense for both backs, but a regular workload makes Bell—who averaged 5.0 yards per carry last season—a No. 2 fantasy back.
