Reggie Bush, RB San Francisco 49ers

Rankings

Notes: Bush is expected to fill a third-down role since it looks like Carlos Hyde is ready to carry most of the rushing load, though Jim Tomsula's comments (about Bush being “a runner...not a gadget guy”) indicate that Bush's presence should be a concern for Hyde owners who were initially excited about the young back's opportunity with Frank Gore gone. The 49ers don't typically use their running backs in the passing game, though longtime OC Greg Roman is gone and new OC Geep Chryst may have a different plan in mind. Bush has appeared in 14 or more games in five of his nine seasons, and has finished in the top 14 in PPR formats in four of those five seasons.

Lions RB Joique Bell: 'I'm going to rush for over 1,200 yards.'

Tuesday, June 30, 2015, 11:09am

MLive - [Full Article]

Lions RB Joique Bell isn't worried about the knee injury that has sidelined him for the entirety of this offseason. He isn't worried about the Achilles either.

He really, really isn't.

Bell is so confident about this season, in fact, that he's predicting he'll become the second Detroit Lions running back to eclipse 1,000 rushing yards since 2004 -- and then some.

"I'm going to rush for over 1,200 yards," Bell told MLive.com. "That's the minimum. If I do less than that, I'll be surprised. I'll be disappointed.

"Anything more than that, I wouldn't be surprised at all."

Fantasy Impact:

Bell was the #14 RB in standard formats (#13 in PPR), while racking up 257 touches in 15 games. That works out to a 17.1-touch average. While he certainly benefited from Reggie Bush's injury-plagued season, Bell dominated the touches even when Bush was active and playing. He should continue to see RB1-type touches in 2015 with Bush out of the way, though the arrival of Ameer Abdullah is a concern. Abdullah has shined with Bell sitting out of offseason activities, but Bell should still see 14-15 touches per game.

Scouting Report

Wild Card – Reggie Bush vs. Dallas Cowboys
In the loss to the Packers last Sunday, Reggie Bush totaled 41 yards on eight touches. In an injury-plagued season, he collected only 550 yards and two scores. Joique Bell will continue to receive the majority of the rushing attempts, but Reggie is still a weapon in the passing game. However, if you’re looking for a RB who will be playing a few games this postseason, you’re better off looking elsewhere.
