Reggie Bush Fantasy Projection: Dolphins RB Looks For Third Straight 100 Yard Rushing Game

The Miami Dolphins (4-9) travel to Buffalo Sunday to take on the Bills (5-8), with an interim coach and a question of who will start at quarterback, Matt Moore or J.P. Losman. What does this mean for Reggie Bush fantasy football owners? It means start him, and expect big things against a Buffalo team that has seemingly thrown in the towel on the season.

Yes, Bush only had 32 yards on 15 carries in Miami's 35-8 victory over Buffalo in Week 11, but the Dolphins running back did still score a touchdown in that game and added four catches for 32 yards. Bush has rushed for 100 yards in consecutive games for the first time in his career, and has five touchdowns in his past seven games.

The fantasy football projection site numberFire ranks Bush as the 12th best option at running back this weekend. The Miami RB's projected stats: 18.30 car, 73.17 yds, 1.39 rec for 9.54 yds, 0.65 TDs for 12.04 points.

For the season, Bush has rushed 169 times for 770 yards and five touchdowns. He also has caught 40 passes for 264 yards and a score.
