For the third straight time, the Oakland Raiders downed the San Diego Chargers 24-17 on Thursday Night, and they it was partly thanks to Michael Bush's 242 all purpose yards and two scores.
Fantasy Impact: With Darren McFadden still in a walking boot, Michael Bush got yet another chance to showcase his skill set, and that he did as he gashed the Chargers run defense almost the entire night. It wasn't as if their were gaping holes to exploit just that Bush ran with a lot of patience and determination, and when there wasn't a hole he made one himself. Bush also caught 3 receptions for 85 yards, and you can bet he will be the No. 1 back next week while McFadden continues to heal, but it won't be easy against the Vikings 5th ranked run defense.
