Lions cut RB Reggie Bush, per source.
After finishing in the top 20 for three straight seasons in PPR points per game (including #6 in 2013), Bush was #32 in that category last season. His departure should solidify Joique Bell's workload and give Theo Riddick the opportunity to shine as the team's primary passing down back. Bell finished #14 in standard formats and #13 in PPR, so he should continue to produce high-end RB2 numbers provided he stays healthy and the Lions don't make any major moves at running back. As for Riddick, he averaged 13.2 fantasy points (in PPR formats) in the five games that Bush missed last season. That's about what Fred Jackson averaged as the #17 running back in 2014.

Wild Card – Joique Bell vs. Dallas Cowboys
With Reggie Bush back and healthy, he and Joique Bell have been splitting playing time. But, it’s been Bell who continues to receive the bulk of the rushing attempts. In the regular season finale at Green Bay last week, Joique ran for 60 yards on 13 carries. He finished the season with nearly 1,200 total yards and eight TDs. The Dallas D allowed only 103 yards per game on the ground, so look for Bell to have an average outing on Sunday.
