Reggie Bush finds the end zone versus the Bengals, still a fantasy gem

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush had a so-so outing in Week 5. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

The Cincinnati Bengals defense did a relatively good job of containing Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush. Bush carried the ball 19 times for 48 yards and a touchdown. He also had two receptions for 24 yards. Bush has proved that not only can he be an every-down back in this league, but he can be one of the better ones.

Fantasy Analysis: Reggie Bush is actually having a pretty fantastic start to the season. Early looks at him indicate he's in contention for the rushing title in 2012. While he did not break 100 all-purpose yards against the Bengals, Bush did manage to find the end zone. He is the workhorse in this Miami offense, benefiting from the recent organizational changes.
