Michael Bush returns to practice, fantasy value in question

Dilip Vishwanat

Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush returned to practice on Friday after missing two days. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush returned to practice on Friday after missing two days with a rib injury. Bush will likely be listed as questionable for the Bears game against the Vikings on Sunday.

Bush will serve as the backup to Matt Forte if he is able to play on Sunday. Bush has 113 carries for 405 yards and five touchdowns on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Despite being a backup, Bush has displayed some fantasy value this season. He has had two games with multiple touchdowns this year. Still, with Forte fully healthy Bush is probably not the best start this week.

Bush has shown that he could put up big numbers in any week, but he is too much of a risk, particularly with his injury concerns.
