Reggie Bush or Jahvid Best

Postby Slim Pickings » Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:59 pm

My pick in the 5th round's almost up & I'm deciding between Bush & Best.

I'm in a PPR league, non-dynasty.



thanks in advance

I think you have to go Bush until we have a better feel for if/when Best plays

Best still hasn't been cleared for contact. I want nothing to do with him this year. I like a Kevin Smith RB5/6 stash this year, he'll be seeing serious touches by midseason.

What about LeShoure, he's going to get way more touches that Smith.

I go with Reggie Bush. We still have no idea the condition Best is in this year, and he could go down again. Not to mention, the lions rarely run the ball. Bush finished very strong last year so I hope he picks up where he left off and go with Bush.

Agreed. Along with that Bush played pretty well last year. That doesnt guarantee the same this year but he is the type of back that can catch on top of run so that gives more opportunity. I dont think Thomas or Miller will unseat him this year so my expectations are the same

I say Bush. He's in a place where his role has been figured out, and the loss of Marshall sets more on him. Best is too risky for me.

You have to go with Bush. There are just too many question marks around Best

LeShoure is coming off an achilles, I don't think he'll be right for awhile yet, even his coach says he's not back to pre-injury form. He's also suspended the 1st two weeks and I wouldn't be shocked if there's another incident while he's away from the team that long. I think he's gone from "sleeper" status to "everyone's sneaky RB3-4" which is too rich for my blood. I think when Best is out again (and he will be) Smith will be the one handling all passing downs (and catching all those passes Best would be). He was a beast last year when he actually saw the field.

I project Mark Ingram 2011 type numbers from Leshoure to be honest. Even if I'm completely wrong here, Smith as a RB5/6 Flier isn't a huge gamble, so I like it.
