I'll say he's a fancy version of FWP. He's not getting goalline carries, he's not going to grind out yardage, but he will take the dumpoff passes and he will break the occasional big play.
I'm sorry, but I feel like I need to be the sober yin to this raging yan of a debate.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that 200 All-Purpose Yard 3 TD Days are going to be the norm for Reggie. I'm just saying that by the end of the year he'll post one.
I was FAR from the Reggie bandwagon before the season started. I thought his ADP was WAY too high (and still do, although I've removed the WAY). But the more I see of him in action the more convinced I am that the STUD label is going to come sooner rather than later.
FWP couldn't carry Bush's jock (and that's not a knock on Parker). If Reggie had THAT line...

I feel somewhat vindicated. If he couldn't pile up the numbers vs. Green Bay, where can he?
If Shaun Alexander can't put up numbers against Detroit, where can he? Seriously, what a ridiculous argument you're trying to make.
You do realize that he had 8 catches yet again, right? And did you see that punt return? He made some sick moves, he's gonna break quite a few long TDs.
But hey, you go back to your vindication through convoluted points, just make sure you send Alexander to the WW while you're at it.
He'll break a few big ones, but in the meantime we shouldn't promote Lee Evans to "Solid #2 WR" just because he's a playmaker. My main point is that McAllister has succesfully defended his starting job in N.O. and if the Saints continue to compete, they will stick even more to a one back scheme.
In PPR leagues, Reggie Bush is performing like a stud #1 RB.. In non-PPR he is a solid #2. Don't underestimate his receiving stats... Not too many RBs will be scoring a TDs worth of receiving yardage in 2 consecutive weeks this year. Reggie Bush already has 125 yards receiving in TWO games. Where does that rank among WRs? I know it's damn near #1 for RBs..
Cleveland and Green Bay. That is who he has played so far. He has done well (receiving, at least), but the competition level has not been great. The next few weeks should be very interesting. I can't wait to see him on Monday Night Football vs. Atlanta. We should learn a lot that game.

Bush has gotten several shots at the goalline.
But he has yet to score...In my league, by points, he's ranked as the 25th RB between Alexander at 24 and Henry at 26. I give Alexander the benefit of the doubt for obvious reasons.
Not sure I see your point. My statement was in response to the statement that he's not getting goalline carries, to which I said he has. I made no mention of what he did with them nor what he would do with them.
