Fantasy Focus: The Dog Days Of Summer #70

#70 2012- Reggie Bush RB Miami Dolphins- Bush had his second most productive season of his much over hyped career in Miami rushing for 986 yards and 6 touchdowns while catching 35 balls for 292 yards and a touchdown.  Bush signed with the Detroit Lions in the offseason and now will face the Chicago Bears twice in 2013.  Bush never became an every down running back for the New Orleans Saints but he came close last season for the Fish.  Bush can be a dangerous weapon for the Lions with all the offensive artillery the Lions offense has going into 2013.  Bush will be a mid round selection in most fantasy drafts.

Retro #70 2002- Keyshawn Johnson WR- Tampa Bay Buccaneers Keyshawn never was great but effective and 2002 was his last really good season catching 76 balls for 1,088 yards and 5 Td’s.  This would be his last 1,000 yard season and he would never be a true #1 fantasy receiver.  I had him on my team entirely too much in those days and he never had a good game when I need him to produce.

Look Ahead #70

ESPN- Benjarvus Green-Ellis RB Cincinnati Bengals- Ellis had a better year than expected after leaving the New England Patriots.  The Law firm will have to deal with some rookies for carries but look for the Green-Ellis to have another solid season for the Bengals.  He should go right around the time Reggie Bush is drafted.

CBS-Robert Griffin III- QB Washington Redskins- The biggest question for RG3 is health.  If he returns healthy this ranking is too low. If he misses a portion of the season this ranking will be correct.  RG3 tried to play tough in the playoffs and it cost him a lot of rehab.  Smart or Dumb? You make the call!
