RB Reggie Bush, Dolphins
It’s hard to play any Dolphins on a weekly basis, but should you come to a decision between Bush and couple of other questionable players for your back slot, Bush may pay dividends. He rushed for over 100 yards last week against the Giants for the first time since 2006.
Those totals shouldn’t be expected every week, but with the Dolphins obviously being committed to the run and rookie RB Daniel Thomas still having lingering hamstring issues, Bush should continue to see more carries making him a good play for Sunday at Kansas City.
WR Michael Crabtree, 49ers
He may finally be at full strength and his performance over his last two weeks suggests he’s ready to break through. Crabtree has 14 receptions for 131 yards and a TD over his last two games.
What’s even better is that Alex Smith is targeting him more than anyone else on the team. Look for big things out of Crabtree the next few weeks with a team on cruise control to the playoffs.
