Thanks to a surprisingly impressive two-year stint as the Miami Dolphins’ No. 1 tailback, Bush shattered the commonly held notion that he was nothing more than a receiving back/gadget player. Bush parlayed his success in South Florida into a starting job in the Motor City. Making 31 starts in a Miami uniform, Bush, who stands at 5-foot-11, 203 pounds, averaged 4.67 yards per carry while toting the rock 216 times and 227 times, respectively, during the last two years. However, the Lions aren’t expected to use the 28-year-old Bush as a regular run-first back. He will share first- and second-down touches with plodder Mikel Leshoure, who is expected to handle goal-line duties. But the still-explosive Bush will command the bulk of the third-down/passing-down work. Although the Dolphins underused him in their passing game, everyone knows Bush is a dynamite receiver out of the backfield, which makes him a great fit for Detroit’s pass-happy attack. The eighth-year pro has a great chance to catch 70-80 passes, assuming he stays healthy. Bush has missed 21 regular-season games since 2007. Draft him as a No. 2 fantasy back. Bush has more fantasy appeal in PPR leagues.
