Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman has announced that running back Michael Bush will see more carries on the goal line. Matt Forte will still see the majority of touches, and scored two touchdowns from inside the 5-yard line in Week 1.
Through the first three games, Bush has just 16 carries for 24 yards. He got his first touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3, plunging in from one yard out, but he finished with just eight carries for nine yards. It's likely the Bears will continue using him in that situation.
Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners probably shouldn't worry about Bush vulturing too many scores from Forte. His goal-line usage is so specific that it's unlikely to come up every week, making his fantasy value entirely dependent on one-yard plunges. Bush remains little more than a pure handcuff. He's not going to get enough touches to justify using a roster spot in 10 or 12-team leagues.
