I'm a member of a FF forum and read some bad things from some of the Miami fans. Said he looked like he "had cement blocks on his feet" "doesn't run with good pad level" and that they basically weren't impressed, but I should reiterate that this was all before his game on Saturday.
True, Bush can't ever stay healthy and that's why I threw that qualifier in my original post but I still think that when healthy he can be a quality FF back. I just like the value of being able to pick up a starting RB as late as he's going. If he gives you a good half of a season he's lived up to his draft position.
Yeah, I messed up and should have taken Bush instead of Thomas. I'll try to get Bush on the wire as I am 2nd in line to pick. I'm sure he will get a lot of short passes in Miami just like he did in NO. Thomas had a good game against the Panthers with a goalline TD, but that is the Panthers... Maybe he will pan out, maybe not, but for a late pick I don't mind some risk. Last year at the end of the season, I only had 6 players on my roster that I drafted. Seemed to work out fine, but I was making transactions every week. Missed out on some good ones like Hillis and Lloyd though.
