Reggie Bush said he was the problem in the Dolphins ground game struggles against the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Reggie Bush only managed 17 yards on 12 carries against the Rams in Week 6. He didn't cite any issues for his struggles, other than the fact that he needs do a better job hitting the holes.

The Dolphins as a team finished with 19 total yards rushing, the third-lowest total in team history. The Rams have been yielding over 100 yards per game on the ground, so this was an unexpected performance.

Fantasy Impact: Bush has been dealing with a knee injury in recent weeks, but he didn't make any note of it hindering his running on Sunday. He did add 44 yards on five catches to his stat line, helping his fantasy value a bit.

Miami is off next week, so Bush and the running game will hopefully have time to resolve the problems at hand. Expect a much better performance from him in Week 8 against the porous Jets run defense.
