Bush's underrated fantasy value
Why the Detroit running back is a great pick in fantasy this season
- Leon Halip/Getty ImagesReggie Bush should prove a valuable new addition to Detroit's offense this season.
As essential as those figures are, in more than a few instances the most valuable draft pick is one that brings RB1/WR1/QB1 performance with a much lower pick on draft day.
Using this barometer, there is a strong case to be made that Reggie Bush is vastly underrated and has the potential to be the most valuable player in fantasy football this season.
Bush had 159 points last year, which ranked 14th among running backs and placed him only 31 points away from a top-10 ranking at that position. This means he was roughly two points per game away from being a true RB1 and thus has to improve only by a reasonable amount to become a top-flight fantasy starter.
