Nagging shoulder and rib injuries slowed Bush during most of 2012 before he went on season-ending injured reserve in December. When healthy, the sixth-year pro did his part as a goal-line specialist, scoring on five of 11 goal-to-go carries. While Bush averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, everyone knows Chicago’s offensive line play was atrocious. Listed at 6-foot-1, 245 pounds, Bush is a powerful downhill runner with solid speed and receiving ability, which makes him a fantasy RB2 whenever he starts in place of Matt 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.
