Reggie Bush busts off 86-yard TD run vs Jacksonville Jaguars (video)

When Reggie Bush is healthy, he can produce like an elite RB in fantasy football.

There's been a lot of debate surrounding the Detroit Lions backfield, and which running back was the better player to target in fantasy football.

While Reggie Bush figures to get the majority of touches this season, Joique Bell has proven to be a solid late-round option at RB, and with Bush's durability concerns, may ultimately be the better option.

Forget that. When Bush is healthy, he can produce like an elite RB1, especially when he's breaking off an 86-yard TD run like the one he did vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars Friday night.

Bush is looking to have a breakout season with the Lions after a decent showing in 2013. It is likely he'll see less carries than he did in 2013, when he had over 200 carries for the third straight season and rushed for 1,000 yards for the second time in his career. Considering how he's started against the Jags, Bush looks on pace to reach both of those milestones again in 2014.

The good news is he's also doing it for a good cause. On Wednesday, it was announced Bush would give $2,500 to a Boys and Girls Club for every touchdown he scores in 2014.
