Quick fantasy outlook: Michael Bush came to Chicago last season with the potential to become the starting back if Matt Forte held out for an extended period of time. Instead, Forte was under contract by the time training camp opened, and Bush was regulated to the backup / short yardage role for most of the season. While he still reached the end zone five times, his yards per carry were the lowest of his career and he only had nine receptions for the season (another career low). For 2013, expect to see more of the same for Bush unless Matt Forte goes down to injury. Bush has proven that he can carry the load as a #1 back, but Chicago will probably use him for only a series or two a game and let Forte carry the team. He's a definite handcuff to Forte owners though because Forte has not been the most durable back over the last two seasons.
