Week 8- If Reggie Bush is healthy, he should tear the Jets’ 31st ranked run defense to pieces. He’s a high risk/high reward guy for Week 8.
Week 6- Even though Bush had a solid fantasy day in Week 5, he still didn’t look like the same guy. He should be fine following his upcoming BYE week, but for now he is more of a RB2 rather than a RB1.
Week 5- Reggie Bush has established himself as an elite player when he’s healthy, and it seems his workload will continue to grow with Daniel Thomas’ struggles. As long as he’s on the field, he should stay in your lineup as a RB1.
Week 4- This ranking all depends on whether or not Bush plays in week 4. Bush has looked incredible through 3 weeks and that will likely continue(if he plays) in week 4. Arizona has emerged as an elite defense and will hamper Bushs’ production, but he’s too good to bench.
Week 3- Reggie Bush finished as the #1 RB in all of fantasy in week 2, but you can’t expect a repeat performance against the Jets. The Jets are constantly blitzing and have shown the ability to shut down great RBs in the past. Bush can be still considered a strong RB2 in week 3, but don’t expect him to put up similar numbers to week 2.
Week 1- I’m not expecting Reggie Bush to repeat last season, and I expect Daniel Thomas to get his fair share of the early down work. He’s going up against a very tough Texans defense that should give him a rough time in week 1. Still, the Dolphins aren’t going to throw Tannehill to the wolves in his first game as an NFL QB, so Bush should get his fair share of carries making him a low-end RB2.
Reggie Bush is excited to get going with his new west coast offense in 2012, and we project his numbers to go up from where they were a year ago. This season we are looking for Bush to rush for 1150 yards with 8 touchdowns. Daniel Thomas will take snaps from him on a weekly basis, which lowers his value to a #2 RB that we recommend targeting in the second or third round of fantasy drafts.
