Should fantasy football owners start Bears running back Michael Bush this week? Click through the gallery and see if he should be in your starting lineup.
START Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Redskins. Skins' pass rush took a major hit last week with loss of Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker. That should leave Dalton plenty of time to pick apart the same secondary that Sam Bradford torched in Week 2.
START Stevie Johnson, WR, Bills at Browns. Despite scoring in each of the first two games, Johnson is flying a bit under the fantasy radar so far. That won’t be the case after he torches the Cleveland secondary.
START Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys vs. Buccaneers. He’s been a big disappointment thus far, but Bryant and the Dallas aerial attack should rediscover their mojo against a Bucs' secondary that just coughed up 510 net passing yards to the Giants.
START Ryan Mathews, RB, Chargers at Falcons. Sometimes it pays to bench a player in his first game back from injury; but this is not one of those times. Mathews is a reliable red-zone threat, and Atlanta can't keep opposing backs out of their end zone.
START Michael Bush, RB, Bears vs. Rams. Assuming Matt Forte takes the week off, Bush is a triple play against a struggling Rams run defense that has surrendered 4 rushing scores already. Always a goal-line hawk, Bush should add some yards, too.
START Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Bills
START Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers
START Joe Flacco, QB, Ravens
START Matt Schaub, QB, Texans
START Reggie Bush, RB, Dolphins
START Alfred Morris, RB, Redskins
START Trent Richardson, RB, Browns
START Willis McGahee, RB, Broncos
START DeSean Jackson, WR, Eagles
START Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers
START Marques Colston, WR, Saints
START Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts
START Dwayne Bowe, RB, Chiefs
START Danny Amendola, WR, Rams
SIT Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers vs. Falcons. I’m nervous about Rivers this week, with the expected return of Mathews and with the ball-hawking Atlanta secondary coming to town.
SIT Michael Turner, RB, Falcons at Chargers. Aside from a 1-yard scoring plunge in Week 2, Turner has been horrible. Mix in his early morning DUI arrest after the Monday nighter, and Turner should be sentenced to your bench.
SIT Shonn Greene, RB, Jets at Dolphins. Miami clamped down hard on Darren McFadden last week, and Greene is no Run-DMC. He split carries with Bilal Powell in Week 2 after missing time with a head injury. Has never scored TD vs. Fish.
SIT Brandon Lloyd, WR, Patriots at Ravens. Tom Brady has been struggling behind his porous offensive line, and he hasn’t yet developed a strong rapport with his new wideout. Even with Aaron Hernandez sidelined, Lloyd is unlikely to find much success.
