ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday morning that he expects Bush to play and get his normal workload:
"“The expectation within the Lions’ organization is he’s going to be out there and take his normal snaps,” said Schefter during a segment on SportsCenter."
Bush has averaged just under 21 touches per game this season. He has 854 rushing yards and 448 receiving yards with five total touchdowns this year, despite having missed two games. If you’ve got him in your fantasy football lineup, you’re breathing a huge sigh of relief. Despite missing two games, he’s scored the 8th-most points of any running back based on ESPN scoring.

For the year, he’s only averaging 10-15 points per game depending on your league’s scoring settings, as is the case with a “boom-or-bust” player like him. Based on ESPN, he has three 20+ point games this year, and five in which he scored 16-plus.
As much as any player in fantasy football this week where most leagues are in their championship game or the semifinal round, Bush can carry or sink your team in the final game of Week 15.
