Reggie Bush to be used more in passing game

The Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Dolphins HC Joe Philbin didn't offer too many specifics about, well, anything because he probably cannot and probably doesn't want to with what he can. But he was clear on his intended use of Reggie Bush.

Unlike last year when Miami mostly used Bush as a traditional running back until very late in the season, Philbin said his staff will try to maximize Bush. He mentioned using him at wide receiver. He mentioned using him in different formations. He mentioned doing things to create mismatches, which is what I thought Miami would do last year.

"We're not just going to hand the ball to him," Philbin said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Bush caught 43 passes for 296 yards and one TD in 2012, which were all career lows on a per-game basis. Bush has always been startable in PPR leagues when healthy, and if Philbin ramps up his use in the passing game, then it should offset whatever additional carries Daniel Thomas may steal.
