It's tough to tell with Kiffin gone, who was his biggest fan in Oakland, but there have been concerns about Mcfadden's turf toe and how it doesn't go away without a fair amount of rest, and Fargas is injured as well, not sure how healthy he will be down the line.

I like him, I think he can be Oakland's best back.

Fargas is expected back after the bye, and McFadden should command more time down the stretch. I hate the Kiffin move, b/c it did seem like Kiffin trusted Bush and gave him lots of opportunities. I dropped Bush today for Deion Branch, I just do not think he is going to get as much PT with Fargas back in the fold and McFadden getting healthy.

...and Bush is now the Raiders' fullback:

Bush converts: Michael Bush began the process of moving from running back to fullback Wednesday, two days after Cable publicly urged him to be "open-armed" about his only chance to see the playing field right now.

Bush went through a similar position change in college.

"I came out as a quarterback, thought I was going to play quarterback, but got switched to running back," Bush said.

He can only hope the latest switch works as well as the last one, when he became a Heisman Trophy runner-up at Louisville. For now, he's biting a hole into his cheek on the whole matter.

"Do I think I'm a fullback? No," Bush said. "I'm doing it, so they can't say I'm not helping the team."

Man, the Raiders organization couldn't be worse.

If they reallyl want a FB, why don't they trade Michael Bush for a top end FB and maybe a late draft pick? I'm absolutely positive some team would go for it. Hell, we have a couple of good FB up here in Seattle. We'll take that deal.

That is the Oakland Raiders for you. Mike Bush is wayyyy to talented to be relegated to a fullback. Hopefully he gets traded in the offseason to a team who will actually utilize his skill. I think he could be a productive starter in this league.

I just think they dont want to give him real work because he might actually do something with it and they would have to pay him too. There is too much money in that backfield. They should have just let Fargas go last year, he is not a long term solution and the long term should be the Raiders' focus because they aren't competing for anything right now.

You could at least enhance his trade value...


They should just trade him and let a savvy team unlock his potential.

What are the chances he does get traded? Think it is possible?

Very high, he was almost traded to San Diego earlier this season, and that was the most anyone could ask out of his value especially in dynasty leagues, he would of ended up being a stud in SD in that offense I believe, but now his value is limited being in Oakland.


But being that they tried 2 trade him earlier, I'd venture to say he'll be on the block this off-season because the Raiders like Fargas and McFadden and Bush is healthy and not willing to play FB, he wants to play RB and get a shot, depends on if Al Davis budges and moves him.
