Week 12: at New England Patriots
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Detroit did without Reggie Bush last week (again), due to his shaky ankle - it's hard to depend on him in fantasy circles as Bush has constantly been nicked up/missed time on the sidelines even when he does suit up. Joique Bell (14/85/0 rushing and five targets for 3/30/0 receiving at Arizona last week) is the superior fantasy option here heading into the final weeks of the NFL season. New England has stomped Denver and Indianapolis by a margin of 22 points in each of their last two games - they look like the AFC team on the rise as we enter the stretch run into the playoffs. Last week, Indianapolis had a miniscule 17/19/0 rushing vs. New England, while Denver posted 17/43/1 at New England two weeks ago. Right now, the New England defensive front is shutting down opposing backs. This looks like a bad matchup for Detroit on the road to New Englands' Gillette Stadium.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 10 vs MIA (4 / 20 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Bush was limited against Miami with an ankle injury early in the game. He showed good burst and lateral agility on two runs, before giving way to Joique Bell and Theo Riddick on a majority of snaps down the stretch. Riddick's strong play in the passing game, including the game-winning touchdown, is a hindrance to Bush's upside down the stretch.
Latest NewsLions | Reggie Bush likely out (Sat Nov 22, 05:30 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely out for Week 12 and is targeting the Thanksgiving Day game Thursday, Nov. 27, to return. Our View: This should push Joique Bell into the RB2 range, with Riddick creeping up into RB5 range. Bush and the Lions are probably focused on the playoffs and it's risky to play Bush on Sunday, then Thursday in a short turnaround. Both Bell and Riddick have played well, though Bell is far more reliable.
link to story Lions | Reggie Bush questionable (Fri Nov 21, 05:05 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited for the third straight day in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and he is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots. Our View: It doesn't seem like Bush is going to get back anywhere near 100% this year. Theo Riddick should stay on PPR benches instead of being dropped because Bush could miss this weekend or additional games before the end of the season if his ankle doesn't improve. Bush isn't worth a roster spot.
link to story Lions | Joique Bell, Reggie Bush limited (Thu Nov 20, 05:59 PM) - Detroit Lions RBs Joique Bell (ankle) and Reggie Bush (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. Bell did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. Our View: It's a tough matchup this week, and that limits their ceiling this week. Bell could be no better than an RB3, while Bush is best looked at as an RB4/flex.
link to story Lions | Reggie Bush on track to play (Thu Nov 20, 12:54 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he is on track to play against the New England Patriots in Week 12. He was not able to play in Week 11 because of the injury. Our View: This is just going to cut into everyone's value and lower it. We still see Bell as a better bet, and even then we're looking at an RB3 for Bell, an RB5 for Bush and Theo Riddick as an RB6. All have some upside, but have a lot more risk.
link to story Lions | Reggie Bush limited at practice (Wed Nov 19, 04:53 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. Our View: Bush and Joique Bell (ankle) are both a bit banged up. That could lead to more touches for Theo Riddick during the week of practice.
