Lions Beat: Banged up offensive line spells trouble for Joique Bell and Reggie Bush

ESPN - [Full Article]

Lions beat writer Michael Rothstein: Detroit starting right tackle LaAdrian Waddle has not practiced all week and his backup, Corey Hilliard, is out for the season. The Lions are looking at starting either an undrafted rookie free agent, Cornelius Lucas, or recently signed Garrett Reynolds as their starting right tackle. Against one of the tougher front sevens in the NFL, that does not bode well for Reggie Bush's or Joique Bell's fantasy upside.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Panthers yielded the second-fewest rushing yards in 2013, so the Lions' offensive line problems should be exposed against Carolina's talented front seven. The good news is that both Bell and Bush are capable of making plays in the passing game, making them reasonable RB3/flex types this week.
