Michael Bush puts up big fantasy points

Jonathan Daniel

Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush scored twice and became the Bears primary back after Matt Forte left with an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush scored two touchdowns in the Bears 28-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Bush carried the ball 21 times for 60 yards to go along with the two TDs.

Starting running back Matt Forte injured his ankle in the second half and did not return to the game, leaving Bush as the primary ball carrier to finish out the game. Both of Bush's touchdowns were scored in the first half, before Forte got injured.

Fantasy Impact: It remains to be seen how serious Forte's injury is, obviously that will have a lot of impact on Bush's value going forward.

Bush scored both of his touchdowns with Forte still in the game, so that proves he can score any week, but he remains a risky start if Forte is healthy and ready to start next week.
