RB Michael Bush Reports to Raiders Camp

Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

All present and accounted for. Oakland Raiders running back Michael Bush joined the Raiders in Napa, California on Saturday.

Bush’s arrival means he either signed a one-year, $2.6 million tender as a restricted free agent or he received a deal with more years and more money.

The Raiders’ second-leading rusher with 655 yards, Bush has made no comments regarding his absence from camp, although it was assumed it was contract related.

Bush was the only restricted free agent who hadn’t reported to his team.

Fantasy Impact: 

Given Darren McFadden's injury history and Oakland's shaky passing game, especially minus Zach Miller, Bush is someone who could easily outperform his draft position. Continue to consider him as one of the best backup running backs in fantasy football and a mandatory handcuff pick if you take McFadden.
