No, don't think he does at all.  I was just hoping to ride him till the wheels fell off...planned on it being till at least week 5 or so though!

If Best continues at his current pace I will be very happy a combined performance of 130-160 yards 1-2 TDs a week that works out just fine in terms of fantasy numbers. Stafford is using him very well and the offense is clicking in DET. Then again it helps when you have players making plays around you. I think it's really too early to tell for Best. First he must make it through a full year so we can get a better read on just what he will do in terms of stats. Talent is one thing, which is what Bush had, but being able to turn that talent into a performance and put numbers up is something else. Right now Reggie isn't doing that in MIA.

I don't think we can count on 1-2 TDs a week for him.  24 TDs(1.5/wk) in a season is pretty unrealistic, even 16 would be highly unlikely.  He's due for some negative regression in TDs, hopefully some positive regression in rushing yards though.  For me to believe in him as a RB I need to see more than 3.3 career yards per carry.

You are right I am not expecting that either. The averages will kick in.

At first I thought we were just talking 2011, but think subject more went towards best vs bush's first two year of thier career... As far as present time( 2011 season) Best will be far better.... over the coase of a career agree they be about the same. I think by draft position Bush will be a bigger disappiontment. I think after 6 years, Best willl still have better numbers, but Bush will have a super bowl.

Yeah I was really talking more about overall career and type of player.  Best should destroy Reggie this year.  I think Reggie's career hurt draft position for players like him, or Best may have been drafted higher.

I think Bush lost the starting job already. I think Bush would have been better if he was kept as just a RB, special teams are hard on the body and even though Bush was good at punt returns, I wonder how much special teams beat him up. I dont think Best ever returned punts or kickoffs, at least not the numbers Bush did.

Thought I'd revisit after a couple more games.  Best's rushing attempts have gone down as I had expected and his per carry average hasn't improved much.  Through 4 games he's now on pace for 760 yards rushing and 888 yards receiving to go with 8 total TDs.  He still seems pretty similar to vintage Reggie to me, and despite an amazing passing attack, I'm not seeing his rushing get much better.

The last 2 games I think part of the lack of rushing attack is because DET was playing from behind. While I am not trying to find an excuse for Best it isn't something we can overlook. Still as a fantasy owner I will be happy with an 800/800 year with 7-8 TDs. That's solid #2 production
