Bush is a decent fall back option and/or backup RB candidate (i.e. someone who can carry the load should the #1 go down) but he is a bit too one dimensional or if you will just not dynamic enough. As an example I am looking for our McFadden with Bush as a capable backup. We need someone who flat scares the opposing defense because IMO Dalton needs electric players so we don't have to plod down the field alot. Green is one, IMO Simpson can be a solid #2 (unless he wants too much money), Gresham is sound for TE (though nowhere near a Jimmy Graham or Aaron Hernandez type) assuming we have an electric RB in place.
