Michael Bush says he'll play Monday, increasing fantasy value

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Bears running back Michael Bush has sore shoulder but doesn't think it will affect him this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush suffered a shoulder injury in the Bears week 3 win over the Rams, but he says that it is fine and won't prevent him from playing on Monday night against the Cowboys. Bush has played in all three games for the Bears this year, making one start, and has 151 yards on 44 carries with three touchdowns. He filled in for six starts with the Raiders last year and was very effective, rushing for a career-high 977 yards with 3.8 yards per carry.

Fantasy Take: Another player who thinks he will be able to play is Forte, but coaches seem to be doubtful of his confidence. It's still highly likely that Bush will make the start but it's difficult to say how effective he will be. The Cowboys were solid against the run against Tampa Bay and New York, but allowed 182 yards to the Seahawks in week 2. Bush probably sits as an RB2 or high-end flex play for week 4.
