Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush Fantasy Outlook Week 6
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Reggie Bush both haven’t practiced and are looking doubtful to suit up in Week 6 according to Lions beat writer, Dave Birkett. This is obviously not the news their fantasy owners want to hear.
Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush miss Lions practice again, doesn't look like either will play Sunday

Johnson is dealing with a nagging ankle injury and has only been active as the team’s decoy over the past couple of weeks. While Coach Jim Caldwell has yet to officially say whether or not Johnson will play, it is worth noting if he does play, he’ll remain limited, meaning meager fantasy points once again. Insert Golden Tate here to steal all the points.
Bush also is working through an ankle injury and the fact he hasn’t practiced all week doesn’t bode well for his Week 6 status. Thankfully, Joique Bell should be able to return this week after missing last week recovering from a concussion. If you have Bell, he makes a decent start against a Minnesota defense who gives up the 10th most fantasy points to running backs.
