|Coming off a career year in 2011 with Oakland, Michael Bush was expected to be one of the more sought after free agents on the market. However, the market for his services was soft and he ended up signing with the Bears to a team friendly four-year, $14-million contract. With the Raiders, Bush emerged as a solid producer when Darren McFadden was lost to injury, finishing the season with career highs in rushing yards (977) and receiving yards (418). While those numbers were solid, he wilted down the stretch gaining just 378 yards over the Raiders final six games and averaging a measly 3.2 yards per carry. With the Bears, Bush will serve as Matt Forte’s backup and the expectation is that he will also assume short yardage duties. Bush rates as one of the better handcuff options in the league and could emerge as a decent flex option in leagues that employ that position given his role as a touchdown vulture, especially if you are of the opinion that the Bears offense is ready to take it up a notch in 2012.
|Kerywnn Williams has 100 yards for Cardinals -- Sun Dec 7 7:00 pm --|
Cardinals have a new starting running back
|Kerwynn Williams began this week on the Cardinals’ practice squad, imitating the actions of Chiefs star running back Jamaal Charles on the scout team. Williams, a little-known second-year running back out of Utah State, had 100 yards on the first 19 carries of his NFL career, helping the Cardinals to a 17-14 victory over the Chiefs.

FF Today's Take: Head coach Bruce Arians stated earlier in the week that Stephan Taylor would get the start which was misleading. Williams started an operated as the main runner in the Cardinals victory. Michael Bush was released in order to bring Williams up from the practice squad. With Andre Ellington out for the year, Williams will can be picked up by running back needy owners.

Cards rookie to get first crack if Andre Ellington is inactive
|Marion Grice likely will be the first one in if Andre Ellington cannot play, but Stepfan Taylor and Robert Hughes will be in the mix, Arians said, while the Cardinals will use a Wednesday padded practice to see where newcomer Michael Bush might fit into the equation. (azcardinals.com)|
FF Today's Take: Grice, a 22-year-old Arizona state product drafted in the sixth round by the Chargers, lost out to Branden Oliver in camp and made the move to Arizona when the Cards signed him off the practice squad. While he’s clearly not a world-beater, Grice could see a high number of touches if he gets off to a good start, and will serve as a decent RB3/flex PPR option in deeper formats if Ellington is inactive.
