Michael Bush paced the Bears to a Week 3 win over the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush had 18 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams. He also added two catches for 18 yards. Taking over for the injured Matt Forte, Bush split carries with Kahlil Bell and showed the bruising ability that made him a valued free agent, getting a three-yard score in the 2nd quarter. The Bears went on to win 23-6.

Fantasy Impact: Bush did what he could running behind an awful O-line (3.1 YPC), and though it wasn't quite the breakout game fantasy owners were hoping for, they'll be happy with the score. Bush and the Bears will face a tough test in Dallas next week.
