I own Bush, and had McFadden last year interestingly enough. I got Bush this year when I traded away Eli Manning instead of dropping him the week after he filled in for Romo for me.
So i bargained for Bush obviously. I dont think folks should be quite as emphatic as they are towards McFadden this week. All indications are that McFadden does play, but remember some things. McFadden is no stranger to Hamstring injury, and coming off one with a viable alternative in Bush, Tom Cable isnt going to just bet the farm on McFadden and risk a set back.
In my assessment a split carry situation this week in the favor of Bush by the likes of 60/40 is very likely and more probable this week, than McFadden just going off this week. Lets face it hey aren't favorites playing Orton who is at home.
Going forward, their performances will totally dictate who is the starter for the rest of the season. McFadden could easily become the guy. This week he is RB2 on the OAK roster for a big reason.
I'll take the healthy starter Bush over a banged up McFadden this week. It should be mentioned, I'm not starting Bush this week as RB3 as I have a DeAngelo Williams there, but I certainly would not play McFadden either if I had him.
