Summary

Bush has indeed been a productive - not explosive, but productive - dual-threat back during his post-Saints rejuvenation. He's flashed the ability to provide PPR gold, catching more than three passes per game since 2011. But the 49ers may not be the right locale for those skills. Their read-option game simply doesn't provide passing volume, and Colin Kaepernick is a runner and a gunner, relying on his athleticism and arm strength to matriculate the ball. Aside from fullback Bruce Miller, Kaepernick has sent just 74 targets to running backs over the last two seasons, one of the lowest rates in the league. Could it be that the new 49ers regime brought in Bush with an eye on utilizing his all-purpose skills? Perhaps, but it feels shortsighted to make that wager on a 30-year-old package back frequently beset by injury. It's hard to expect a usage upside beyond 30-40 receptions and 50-75 rushes. It probably makes more sense to think of Bush as a less dynamic, less dependable Darren Sproles, but without a return game boost and stuck in an inferior offense. (May 15)

Saints | C.J. Spiller a good fit in New Orleans? (Sun Jun 28, 08:52 PM) - New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has a perfect skill-set for head coach Sean Payton's system, which relies on getting the ball to players in space, according Chris Wesseling of NFL.com. Wesseling believes Spiller is significantly more talented than RB Reggie Bush and RB Darren Sproles, who both thrived in Payton's system.

Our View: Spiller is going to be a great fit for the Saints offense. Sure, Mark Ingram will be the banger between the tackles but Spiller will be used effectively as a change-of-pace runner and receiver out of the backfield. There are Saints beat writers who feel that Spiller will get more total yardage than Ingram. His current ADP is RB16 (3.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.
