Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas both find solid fantasy value in Week 12

Mike Ehrmann

The Dolphins effectively used both Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas against the Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Reggie Bush rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in Week 12, while Daniel Thomas managed 60 yards on nine carries and a score of his own against the Seahawks. Thomas also caught one passe for 18 yards.

The timeshare in the Dolphins backfield has been hindering the value of both backs, but they each ran week on Sunday against one of the better run defenses in the league.

Fantasy Impact: Owners might have been hesitant to play Bush this week given his lack of production in recent weeks. Of course both players aren't going to find the end zone every week, but this is a promising sign for their value going forward.

Bush clearly is still the one to start. He's worth a flex play. Thomas is harder to trust as he receives fewer touches each week.
