Does anyone else think that this may happen?

He has rushed for over 100 yards in 5 of his past 6 games. He is looking like a fantasy stud, and although didn't show it today; is a great receiving threat as well.

The saints are 0-2, and R Bush is 2nd to only CJ Spiller in total yards for an NFL Running back.

Am I in the twilight zone?

Provided he stays healthy, can R Bush become an elite fantasy football running back?

I own him and am just hoping he is a top RB2. I have no delusions of grandeure. He will not be a top 5 RB. There isn't the passing game to take some of the focus off of him. They won't be ahead often enough to produce top rushing numbers. Tannehill won't be able to sustain drives to elevate his TDs.

I see your point. But Tanny didn't play bad at all today. And bush exploded with TD s of 25 and 65 yards. Doing that, he really won't need to sustain the drives.

And if they are going to be down allot, then he always has the check down passes. Maybe you're right, I will take top RB2 numbers from him. A steal in the 6th round!

But he played against the Raiders today? Are you saying that he wasn't a top 5 RB today, he was the # 1 RB today?

No hes saying that he played against the raiders and they are not very good. He may have been top 5 today or whatever, but Im not concerned with today, Im concerned about the future.

Before we get into the raiders defense Im not saying there good or bad, we not seen enough to know.

If the dolphins def. keeps it close and the lack of receivers for miami, Bush should be alright, its his injury history thats a concern.


If he makes it past this season, he might be up for the FF Fred Taylor award.

Bush definitely helped people win championships last year, including myself, but have to admit the likelihood of a repeat seems doubtful. Along with the argument that the Dolphins will rarely be winning so they can run the ball, I have concern he won't make it a full season. Last year was amazing, but career stats and durability never lie. You should try and sell him for a lot more than a pizza right now..

Really happy I grabbed him as my RB3 in my .5 ppr league. Monster game yesterday.

The key to Bush's season is his utilization on the Dolphins. As we've seen with Steven Jackson, a good RB can be productive even on a terrible team with a shady o-line. If he gets the touches, I could see a top 10 finish for him in ppr.

As always, if (when) he gets injured, all this talk will go out the window.

I think he is second to only Spiller right now in total offense.

If he stays healthy; I think I stole him in the 6th round

Bush's ADP was based on expectation of decent production but with others maybe cutting into the touches + health...it was discounted. So until either of those 2 things happen, he will continue to outproduce expectations. He's not doing anything we didn't see last year and people thought was possible this year. I was in the camp that believed...but I'm also a Mathews, KSmith, DMC supporter for similar reasons as well. So far so good, but we'll see where the chips lay at the end of the year. Top 10? No, probably not. But top 15 per game, yes. That's where expectation was to be honest.

Like nearly everybody else, health is my only concern with him. He has top 5 potential but I wouldn't like to see him getting 26 carries every week.

If I had him, I'd obviously keep him in my starting lineup until or unless he gets hurt. But if I didn't have him, I probably wouldn't be willing to pay a premium to get him, based on his injury history.

I have been offered Rodgers and Greene for my Reggie Bush and Rivers...

Would leave me with: McCoy, Peterson, Spiller, Greene and Mendy.

I have to jump all over this dont I?
