Reggie Bush fighting through knee injuries, stifling fantasy value

Thomas J. Russo-US PRESSWIRE

Reggie Bush is averaging just 3.2 YPC the past five games ever since a knee injury in Week 3 that he tried to play through. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush has struggled to match his 2011 production, and injuries could be a big reason why. According to the Palm Beach Post, Bush is averaging just 3.2 YPC in his last five games, dating back to Week 4. Incidentally, he suffered a significant knee injury in Week 3 and has been trying to play through it.

On the season, Bush has rushed 122 times for 534 yards, four TDs and 4.4 YPC.

Fantasy Impact: The Dolphins clearly know about Bush's struggles too, as Daniel Thomas has seen more snaps the past couple weeks. So will Bush get back to form soon, or was 2011 a fluke?

We will have to see. The Dolphins take on the Titans' sieve defense this week, so fantasy owners have a good buy-low opportunity here.
