Reggie Bush admitted that he is disappointed with his level of play in recent weeks, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Bush was benched in favor of Daniel Thomas after losing a first quarter fumble to contribute to the Miami Dolphins' blowout loss to the Tennessee Titans last week.
Thomas has now played more snaps than Bush in three straight games. He also had more touches than Bush last week for the first time since Week 3 when Bush was limited due to a knee injury.
Fantasy Impact: We will see whether or not being forced to stand on the sidelines lights a fire under Bush. As things stand, he is gradually letting his grasp on the starting job slip through his fingers. Bush may still be a viable Flex play in some formats, but Thomas appears to be the Dolphins back to own at the moment.
This week's matchup against the Buffalo Bills is a good one for Bush and Thomas. Both backs would be worth starting consideration if either one could take sole possession of the backfield. For now, you can consider them for your Flex spot.
