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)
