Reggie Bush Fantasy News

49ers sign Pierre Thomas

Perhaps signaling Carlos Hyde will remain shelved by a foot injury, the 49ers added their second veteran running back in as many days, agreeing to terms Tuesday with Pierre Thomas, according to his agent.

The 49ers also needed depth at the position, preferably from experienced backs, to compensate for the potential season-ending injuries Sunday to Reggie Bush (knee) and Mike Davis (hand). Hyde suffered a stress fracture Oct. 11 and finally was kept from suiting up last game, which the 49ers lost 27-6 at St. Louis.

On Monday, the 49ers signed veteran Shaun Draughn.

Fantasy Impact:

Thomas has had some workouts, but this is the first job he's landed for 2015. He could help the 49ers in the passing game, replacing Bush who was injured last week. With so many new pieces in place in the 9ers backfield now, it's hard to tell just how they will all be used if Hyde remains out. Given how Thomas has been a free agent for so long, it's hard to see him having a huge fantasy impact. But those struggling at the position may want to take a chance, perhaps especially in PPR leagues.

Rapoport: Reggie Bush tore ACL

Sunday, November 1, 2015, 7:34pm - [Full Article]

San Francisco 49ers running back Reggie Bush suffered a knee injury early in the first half of a 27-6 loss to the Rams. Bush was hurt on a punt return after being pushed out of bounds and slipping on the concrete surface around the field at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Bush is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, per sources informed of the injury. He'll undergo an MRI to confirm the injury.

Bush is the second player to slip on the concrete in St. Louis and slam into the barrier separating the fans from the field. Last week, Browns quarterback Josh McCown skidded on the slick surface in his cleats and hit his shoulder.

Fantasy Impact:

The 49ers backfield is disintegrating. Carlos Hyde was out Sunday with a foot injury that could linger. With Bush now out for the duration of the season, rookie Mike Davis is the next back in line. Sunday, Davis rushed for just four yards on 10 carries.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Hyde has a stress fracture in his foot. Reggie Bush out-touched Mike Davis 7-to-0 last week, so we would expect Bush to be the lead back and Davis to get a few touches as his primary backup. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is speculating that Hyde may be out until Week 11, after the 49ers’ Week 10 bye. Bush is worth a pickup, especially in PPR formats.

Admittedly, Reggie Bush felt some relief after finishing Thursday night’s game free of injury.

“Finally,” the 30-year-old running back told reporters on Tuesday.

Bush has dealt with a nagging calf strain since the first quarter of the San Francisco 49ers Week 1 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The injury limited Bush to just four carries and one reception through the first six weeks of the season.

“It’s been frustrating, obviously,” Bush said. “Not being out there on the football field and dealing with the calf muscle. Just working through constant rehab and wanting to be out there – it’s been definitely tough. I was just excited to be out there and be healthy.”

Against the Seattle Seahawks, Bush ran the ball four times for 21 yards and caught three passes for 13 yards. The most important development of the game, however, was how his calf responded to the workload.

Fantasy Impact:

Bush had previously attempted a return to game action, but he aggravated the injury in New York and was forced to sit out the following week versus the Baltimore Ravens. Bush was encouraged by his performance overall, the story said.

TNF Injury Report: Seahawks vs. 49ers

NFL Communications - [Full Article]

Seattle Seahawks

CB Marcus Burley (hand), RB Derrick Coleman (concussion), DT Jordan Hill (quadricep), C Patrick Lewis (ankle), LB Nick Moody (ankle)

DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder)

DE Cliff Avril (ankle), G Justin Britt (hip), S Kam Chancellor (shoulder), DE Frank Clark (hamstring), T Garry Gilliam (ankle), WR Tyler Lockett (hip), RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring), CB Richard Sherman (ankle), CB Tye Smith (hip), LB Bobby Wagner (pectoral)

San Francisco 49ers

WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring), RB Carlos Hyde (foot), T Erik Pears (back)

G Alex Boone (shoulder), LB Navorro Bowman (shoulder), LB Ahmad Brooks (shoulder), RB Reggie Bush (calf), TE Vernon Davis (knee), WR Bruce Ellington (calf), TE Vance McDonald (chest), S Eric Reid (chest), T Joe Staley (knee), G Brandon Thomas (ankle)

Fantasy Impact:

Marshawn Lynch is probable, so we expect another big workload. Anquan Boldin and Carlos Hyde are both iffy. Given the matchup against a tough Seattle defense, we recommend shying away from both players if possible. It looks like Reggie Bush will make his return, though he has been unable to stay healthy for very long this year.

49ers 'very optimistic' Reggie Buch returns Week 7

Monday, October 19, 2015, 5:51pm

Mercury News - [Full Article]

49ers HC Jim Tomsula is “very optimistic” that running back Reggie Bush might return from a calf injury that kept him out of Sunday’s game and has limited this season.

Fantasy Impact:

Carlos Hyde is dealing with a sore left foot but the injury is nothing serious, however the 49ers could use the threat in the passing game that Bush presents when healthy.

Carlos Hyde ACTIVE vs. Ravens

49ers Inactives
Reggie Bush RB
Bruce Ellington WR
Gerald Hodges LB
Corey Lemonier LB
Mike Purcell NT
Ian Silberman G
Brandon Thomas G

Fantasy Impact:

With Reggie Bush out, Carlos Hyde should see a bulk of the snaps.

Friday, October 16, 2015, 6:15pm

49ers RB Reggie Bush (calf, doubtful) missed practice again Thursday and is doubtful for Week 6. He isn’t going to play. Carlos Hyde is listed as questionable, and should see the bulk of the snaps if he can go.

Thursday, October 15, 2015, 6:18pm

49ers RB Reggie Bush (calf) did not practice Wednesday. Bush is likely out for Week 6.

Thursday, October 15, 2015, 6:18pm

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not practice Wednesday. He walked off the field 'gingerly' due to a 'foot issue' on Thursday. Jarryd Hayne has been active ahead of Mike Davis when Reggie Bush is also active, but in the two games that Bush was inactive (and Davis was active), Davis saw 17 touches compared to just two for Hayne. Hayne's role on special teams is the reason he's been active ahead of Davis. If Hyde is out, look for Davis to see the bulk of the carries against Baltimore.

Friday, October 2, 2015, 6:45pm

49ers RB Reggie Bush (calf, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4. Bush is going to eat into Carlos Hyde’s touches, it’s just a matter of how much.

Thursday, October 1, 2015, 7:11pm

49ers RB Reggie Bush (calf) practiced fully Wednesday. It looks like Bush is back in the mix, though Carlos Hyde is going to lead the team in touches.

Reggie Bush (calf) doesn't make trip to Arizona

Saturday, September 26, 2015, 4:42pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Reggie Bush hasn’t done much in two weeks, and the 49ers made his absence for Sunday’s game at Arizona official Saturday when the team announced that Bush did not make the trip with his teammates and will instead stay in Santa Clara to continue rehab on his calf injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Bush had been listed as doubtful on the team’s Friday injury report. Bush was injured early in the season opener and hasn’t practiced since. Earlier this week, 49ers coach Jim Tomsula said Bush was “looking really good” but is probably only up to 80 percent speed.

Friday, September 25, 2015, 7:02pm

49ers RB Reggie Bush (calf, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 3. Carlos Hyde should continue to carry the load for the 49ers.
