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.
A split back situation is in the cards this year as it will likely be Joique Bell getting the call, especially at the goal line. Bush's value will be in the passing game, a bonus for those PPR leagues.
Bush has had a career resurgence over the past three seasons and that can be attributed to a decisive increase in touches once he left New Orleans. But things are changing in Detroit as they've brought in a new head coach in Jim Caldwell, and new offensive coordinator in Joe Lombardi, who would like to establish a more balanced offense. The Lions also re-signed running back Joique Bell and plan to play a two-back traditional offense that employs a fullback. That means more carries for Bell as the traditional straight-ahead, hard-nosed runner and more passing down activities for Bush. Look for more of a Darren Sproles-type role for Bush moving forward as he rushes the ball less in 2014.
You know, I told you the Lions were over rated. Maybe some day you penis heads will get it that I am here to help.
The only PM I got asked if I thought Young was due to break out. I said no.
Two Geese, no sharks!
You simple minded little twerp ...
Anyone have any news on Best? Will he make a return at some point this season? I've heard from some Week 8, but I doubt that. I'm in a deep league and was thinking about picking him up hopefully a week or two before he comes off the PUP list....
There are a TON of faithful fans that have had your back through the bad,the ugly, and even worse than that over the years.
Let's kick some tail in the playoffs and shut up the nay sayers.

Round 8, Pick 7
Positives Excellent PPR opportunity. Fewer mouths to feed in Miami. Should fit right in to wildcat. Negatives Not a RB#1 even if he's listed ahead of Thomas on the depth chart. Draft Strategy Back to my RB-whoring ways. So what if half of my players are RBs? I'm not planning on needing him much, but he could be worth a spot start and this keeps him away from my competitors. All the upper tier TEs were gone so there was no reason to stretch for one here; not picking a D this early either. Probably should have grabbed another WR, but Bush was just to enticing.

Round 8, Pick 8
Positives By default, the coaching staff in Miami is looking to him to be the starting RB to start the season. He has performed well in the past, and should be involved especially in the passing game. Negatives The Dolphins are going to struggle to run the ball, and the presence of rookie Daniel Thomas will surely cut into Bush's playing time. Draft Strategy Bush hasn't been able to establish anything in the pre-season, so he continues to be a questionable fantasy entity for 2011. The name "Reggie Bush" brings to mind excitement, but in reality it has been a while since he's done anything great on the field. At this point in the draft, he's not a bad guy to take a chance on, especially after already getting established starters at the RB position. (Contributed by: doug_coutts)
