RB Michael Bush, Cardinals

Rotoworld:

 

 

When discussing the signing of RB Michael Bush, coach Bruce Arians said, "We need a guy who's gonna pound it in there and close out games for us."

 

It can be taken as a sign the Cardinals are going to use Bush in goal-line and short-yardage situations. With Andre Ellington averaging over 20 touches per game and looking like he may need a breather, it's not out of the question that Bush will step into a prominent role. It's a hit to Ellington's value, but we could also argue it's a boost. Ellington is most effective when he's fresh, and less touches would make him more explosive. He's still a solid RB1/2.

Dynasty: Devin Funchess, Michigan

One of Michigan's biggest issues entering the bye week is improving the play of receiver Devin Funchess.

 

Entering the season as a popular all-conference selection, Funchess was dominant in the first half of the Appalachian State game when he scored three touchdowns.

 

Since then he has just one, and each week he seems to regress.

 

He has had only one 100-yard game — in the Week 2 blowout loss to Notre Dame — and had his lowest production of the season in Saturday's 10-9 win over Northwestern: two catches for 23 yards.

 

Funchess, who at 6-feet-5, 230 pounds is projected by many as a future NFL receiver and a possible first-round draft pick, has struggled with dropped passes. Against the Wildcats, there were two first-half passes on third down that he couldn't pull in.

 

"We coach him, there's been guys who have gone through that in the past," U-M coach Brady Hoke said after the Northwestern game. "We do a lot of JUGS (machine) work, we do a lot of routes on air. You've just got to keep coaching him through that."

 

Hoke said he's not worried, though.

 

"No, (but) would I like him to catch them, sure," Hoke said. "He'd like to catch them."
