Michael Bush Fantasy Update: Oakland Raiders RB Quiet Against Cleveland Browns

Michael Bush's fantasy value is directly tied to how many goal line carries he receives since Darren McFadden is the undisputed starter. Unfortunately for Bush and fantasy owners, he was unable to crack the end zone and gained just 28 yards on 10 carries. With Jason Campbell out for the season, the Raiders could turn to a more run-oriented offense and give more carries to Bush.

Bush entered Sunday's game averaging just 22 yards through five games, the result of Darren McFadden being a beast on the ground. He picked up three goal line touchdowns during Weeks 2-4, but was held scoreless against the Houston Texans.

Bush was the No. 32 running back, according to Yahoo!'s Week 6 fantasy rankings. That's a 31-spot gap between he and teammate Darren McFadden, the top back entering Week 6.
