Reggie Bush ball control issues hurting fantasy value

Marc Serota

Reggie Bush was benched after fumbling in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Joe Philbin chose to sit Reggie Bush for the majority of the first half after he lost a fumble, he second in three weeks. Bush said his benching was fair, discussing the need do a better job of protecting the ball going forward.

He was back in after halftime. Philbin said on Monday that Bush was not in any doghouse, which should bode well going forward.

Fantasy Impact: First Bush started losing time to Daniel Thomas, now he's losing time because of his own mistakes. The stars aren't aligning for him to lead the league in rushing like he discussed in the offseason.

Bush received just four carries for 21 yards in Week 10. His value will continue to decline if he can't protect the ball. He has the potential for a decent outing next week, though, as the Dolphins face the Bills porous defense.
