Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Bush’s first go-around as Matt Forte’s backup was disappointing. A nagging shoulder injury hindered Bush virtually the entire season, and a rib injury landed him on season-ending injured reserve in late December. When he was on the field, Bush averaged a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and amassed a soft 18-55-1 rushing line during his only fill-in start. In addition, the sixth-year pro’s week-to-week usage was too unpredictable to trust him even as a backup fantasy starter. Listed at 6-foot-1, 245 pounds, Bush is a powerful downhill runner with solid speed and receiving ability, which should make him a high-end fantasy RB2 whenever he fills in for Forte. Will Bush handle goal-line touches in new head coach Marc Trestman’s offense? Probably. If you draft Forte, make sure you lock up Bush as an insurance policy. The Bears’ have revamped their offensive line, which should help Bush if he is called into starting action. A healthy Bush is a much better player than the version of him we saw in 2012.
