Both RBs are on great offensive teams, both are game breakers, but you have to like Bush better because he has the greater natural talent. Consider Maroney's injury issues to boot, and you definitely have to go Reggie Bush.
If your league rewards a point per reception then that would make it NO CONTEST in favor of Bush.
My reasoning behind this trade has nothing to do with the homer factor.
My reasoning is; Bush splits carries and Maroney is the main man. I am hesitant because of Maroney's injury history but I am intrigued because of his potential to have a monster year. Plus I don't think that Bush is going to reach the amount of receptions that he had last year.
Here is our scoring system:
FG - Field Goals 3 points
Plus 2 points for a FG of 50+ Yds
FL - Fumble Lost, Including ST plays -2 points
Pa2P - Passing Two-point Conversion 2 points
PaInt - Passing Interception -2 points
PaTD - Passing TD 6 points
PaYd - Passing Yards 0+ PaYds = 1 point for every 25 PaYds
Re2P - Receiving Two-point Conversion 2 points
ReTD - Receiving TD 6 points
ReYd - Receiving Yards 0+ ReYds = 1 point for every 10 ReYds
Ru2P - Rushing Two-point Conversion 2 points
RuTD - Rushing TD 6 points
RuYd - Rushing Yards 0+ RuYds = 1 point for every 10 RuYds
XP - Extra Points 1 point
