Lions Beat: Ameer Abdullah already 'a better receiver' than Reggie Bush

Detroit Lions - [Full Article]

Ameer Abdullah is a better receiver than the Lions thought he'd be, certainly a better receiver already than Reggie Bush was. The Lions will use him a lot in that role and that could dip into Theo Riddick's numbers some.

Fantasy Impact: 

We project Abdullah for 51 catches. Bush averaged 3.76 catches in 25 games with the Lions, which works out to 60.1 over a full 16-game season. Both Riddick and Joique Bell are adept in the passing game, so look for the Lions to use their running backs early and often in 2015.
