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 is now 30 and his 3.9 yards per carry last year was the lowest average he's put up since 2008. The days of Bush trying to be a feature back are over. That doesn't mean his fantasy value is dead though. The 49ers brought Bush in to be the lightning to Carlos Hyde's thunder. Hyde will get most of the early down work, while Bush will handle the passing down duties. Bush has caught at least 40 passes in seven of his nine seasons. He'll have a big impact in PPR formats.

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)
