Cardinals | Big role for Michael Bush?

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 10:46:03 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Michael Bush fits the role of a big, bruising ball carrier who can be effective in the red zone and at the goal line, and head coach Bruce Arians is hoping Bush can fill the role that RB Jonathan Dwyer had. "We really miss John," Arians said. "I like our backs but we need a guy that's going to pound it in there and close out some games in short yardage and goal-line situations," Arians said. Bush has 12 touchdowns on 26 goal-line carries in his career. Arians said Bush is in "great shape" after not having played this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bush won't be available at FantasyScore in Week 13, so you don't have to worry about him. However, in future weeks, he could be a cheap flex play if you're willing to take a chance on him vulturing some goal-line scores.

Bears | Michael Bush to be used at goal line

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 14:36:20 -0700

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said RB Michael Bush has been declared as the team's goal line running back.

Fantasy Tip: This news should give Bush some added value in most fantasy leagues, but he still likely will receive limited touches during games. Bush can be considered as a weak flex option in deeper leagues.

Bears | Michael Bush fully healed

Fri, 05 Jul 2013 09:49:32 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush (shoulder, rib) is fully healed from both rib and shoulder injuries he dealt with last season. His role in the team's offense is undefined this offseason under new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman.

Fantasy Tip: Bush's value last year rested on the laurels of goal-line touches and as the handcuff to Matt Forte. It's unclear if Bush will be the team's go-to goal-line back again, but he'll still be a handcuff option to Forte in deeper leagues.
