Week 17 Outlook
Jacquizz Rodgers to re-sign with Tampa Bay
ESPN's Jenna Laine is reporting running back Jacquizz Rodgers will re-sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rodgers will re-sign with Tampa Bay, "barring any surprises," Laine said via ESPN. The Buccaneers' running back situation is cloudy entering free agency and draft season. With Doug Martin facing a four-game suspension, there is a possibility of the team moving on from their inconsistent and now troubled rusher, leaving a hole in their starting backfield. If Rodgers re-signs, he could compete with Charles Sims for the role of the team's change-of-pace back, assuming no personnel changes. With Martin's future uncertain, expect the Buccaneers to address the running back position either in the draft or free agency.
Jacquizz Rodgers goes for 78 yards and a touchdown
The Bucs didn't have enough to beat the Saints on Saturday. Doug Martin was a late scratch and Jacquizz Rodgers saw most the action at running back. He carried the ball for 63 yards and caught two passes for 15 yards. Rodgers also scored a touchdown.
Rodgers made for a great cheap play in DFS if you heard the news about Doug Martin in time. He could be an interesting play in Week 17 as well if given the start.
Jacquizz Rodgers INACTIVE for Week 12
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) is officially inactive for Week 12.
Rodgers will miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday against Seattle. It will be Doug Martin leading Tampa's running game while Peyton Barber garners his leftovers.
Jacquizz Rodgers ruled out for Week 10
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) has been ruled out for Week 10.
Rodgers will not play Sunday against Chicago as he is still dealing with a foot injury. With Doug Martin a game-time decision and likely limited even if he is active, Peyton Barber is in line to garner the bulk of the workload in Week 10.
Jacquizz Rodgers a 'longshot' for Week 10
ESPN's Jenna Laine reports that Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) remains in a walking boot and is considered a "longshot" to play in Week 10.
Tampa Bay's backfield is in shambles in 2016. They lost Charles Sims and Antone Smith to IR while Doug Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers are sidelined with their respective hamstring and foot injuries. If neither Martin or Rodgers are abe to play Sunday against Chicago, Peyton Barber will draw his second consecutive start and split the workload with Mike James. Barber is in the mid-range RB2 conversation in a tough matchup with the Bears this week, whose defense is ranked 29th in fantasy points allowed to opposing rushers giving up only 13.7 FPPG.
