Reggie Bush manages mediocre fantasy numbers in Week 7

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Bush had 50 rushing yards and 44 receiving yards against the Bengals on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Reggie Bush struggled to make big plays against a tough Cincinnati run defense during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Bush managed just 50 yards on 20 carries. Not surprisingly, Bush salvaged an otherwise disappointing fantasy outing by being utilized in the passing game. He caught three passes for 44 yards. Bush was the clear workhorse as his backfield counterpart, Joique Bell, carried the ball just three times for 29 yards.

Fantasy impact: In what was expected to be an uphill battle, Bush found difficulty breaking off big gains against a tough Bengals line. He was mostly useful in chipping away at Cincinnati's defense so Matthew Stafford could take advantage of their injury-ridden secondary. If anything, Bush owners should feel encouraged knowing that he received the majority of the team's carries for the afternoon. Bush will likely bounce back against against a Dallas defense that has been fairly pedestrian in limiting fantasy running backs.
