RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bush made 55 tackles (44 solo) in 10 games in 2014 before suffering a season-ending tibia fracture in November. A potential salary-cap casualty this offseason, he re-signed with the Saints on a two-year deal, though Bush will likely sit third on the team's safety depth chart, behind likely starters Jairius Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro. For fantasy purposes, Bush would probably be best served by moving on, as he has shown that he's capable of posting fantasy-relevant numbers in a starting role. Absent an injury to Byrd or Vaccaro, however, his IDP value is minimal.
Bush, who made 42 tackle sin 13 games in 2013, will back up Kenny Vaccaro and Jairus Byrd at safety for the Saints. He will also contribute on special teams.
Bush will play on special teams and as a reserve safety for the Saints.
Will provide depth in the defensive backfield.
Bush will back up William Moore at strong safety this season.
Could see time on special teams but is buried on the depth chart.
