In Part 1 of this series, I suggested that Reggie Bush would be a solid substitute for LeSean McCoy in 2013 (in part because of his lower ADP), and I also said that I wouldn’t be surprised if some people considered Reggie Bush, by the end of 2013, to be the season’s fantasy MVP. Additionally, I looked at RotoViz’s Similarity Scores App (one of the premier fantasy tools on the internet) to see how players comparable to McCoy and Bush had performed in the past. In Part 2, I looked at RotoViz’s multi-year dynasty projections for RBs, noting that (based on these projections) Bush may be the better player not only in 2013 but in 2014-2018 as well. Furthermore, I considered McCoy and Bush’s 2011 and 2012 performances and suggested that, with his superior per touch efficiency, Bush could likely earn a few more touches in Detroit’s explosive offense without seeing his efficiency decrease dramatically. In particular, I think this is so because of some of the RBs we’ve seen in Detroit the last few years. In this piece, I want to look at Detroit’s RBs of the last few years (specifically 2012) to gain some insight into what Bush could do in 2013.
