Lions Beat: Team likely to lean on RB Joique Bell in Week 6

ESPN - [Full Article]

With Calvin Johnson highly questionable (Editor's note: He's doubtful.) to play Sunday, Joique Bell may become a very strong play for Detroit. When Johnson isn't on the field, the Lions have thrown 53 percent of the time compared to 68 percent whenever Johnson is on the field. With Reggie Bush also questionable with an ankle injury, Bell becomes an attractive option.

Fantasy Impact: 

We have moved Bell up in the rankings to account for the status of both Calvin Johnson (doubtful) and Reggie Bush (questionable). Bush is still hoping to play, but it's not looking good. Bell is a solid play this week, but the team will also utilize preseason favorite Theo Riddick in the Bush role.
