Kahlil Bell re-signs with Bears: Fantasy season over for Michael Bush?

US PRESSWIRE

Kahlil Bell signed with the Bears on Tuesday, with Michael Bush dealing with an apparent ribs injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kahlil Bell signed with the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Bell was released by the team in October, but has been brought back to provide depth at running back with Michael Bush dealing with an apparent ribs injury.

Bush was active for last week's game against the Green Bay Packers, but did not record a touch in the Bears' loss. Matt Forte once again led the charge with 69 yards rushing on 20 carries and 64 yards receiving on four receptions. Armando Allen saw backup carries ahead of Bush, picking up five yards on two carries and 15 yards on one reception.

Fantasy Impact: Bell's signing seems to be a signal that Bush's usefulness as a fantasy option is at its end for the season. Owners should seriously consider dropping Bush in favor of another potential contributor on waivers.

As for Bell, his fantasy value is minimal. It's unclear whether he slots before or after Allen on the running back depth chart, but as long as Forte is healthy it doesn't much matter. Expect limited touches in Week 16 and Week 17.
