Reggie Bush seeing fewer snaps than Daniel Thomas, fantasy value limited

Joe Robbins

Reggie Bush continues to lose playing time to Daniel Thomas. We break down the fantasy implications.

For the second week in a row, Reggie Bush played fewer snaps than Daniel Thomas in the Dolphins offense. Thomas was in for 33 plays, while Bush only saw action on 28 against the Colts.

Bush recorded 41 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, while Thomas carried the ball six times for 37 yards. Both running backs caught two passes for 25 yards as well.

Fantasy Impact: Bush's touchdown run was a thing of beauty, and it's clear he is the more talented back. Thomas, though, is seeing more action on passing downs. That area of work is better suited for Bush.

Both backs have dealt with injuries in 2012, but there doesn't seem to be anything holding Bush back right now other than his coaches. His value is limited as long as this timeshare continues.
