RB - TB
This Week Outlook
Mike Kaye of Pro Football Network reports that there has been some trade chatter around Ke'Shawn Vaughn and the Buccaneers running back might be "available for the right price."
Drafted in 2020, Vaughn totaled 206 scrimmage yards and two total touchdowns last year. Now 25 years old, he projects to make the Buccaneers' roster but could be traded for some low-end compensation. Vaughn and Rachaad White have been battling for the backup role in Tampa Bay, and a trade would allow White to fill in as the No. 2 option. In that scenario, Gio Bernard would make the team as the No. 3 back.
Ke'Shawn Vaughn rushed for 36 yards and a touchdown on nine carries during Saturday's preseason loss to the Colts.
Vaughn has been battling Rachaad White for the RB2 spot in Tampa Bay, and while he got more opportunity than the rookie, he made the most of it on Saturday. He has rushed for over four yards per carry in the last two preseason games, and it seems like he may finally be separating himself on the depth chart. He could be an interesting late-round pick in redraft and best ball leagues.
Ke'Shawn Vaughn had a nice game Saturday, rushing for 54 yards on 10 carries in a 13-3 preseason loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Vaughn averaged 5.4 yards per carry in Saturday's loss, and he continues to make a compelling case to be the RB2 on this offense. He has to compete with rookie Rachaad White for the spot, but Vaughn has had a nice offseason so far and could win the favor of the coaching staff. If he does end up winning the RB2 spot in Tampa Bay, he could be an interesting late pick in redraft and best ball leagues.
Buccaneers RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn had 10 carries for 19 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 26-24 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Vaughn saw the most carries of anyone for Tampa Bay, but he averaged the least yards per carry for the team. He did manage to get in on a touchdown, but he didn't do much beyond that. He isn't expected to be a fantasy relevant player in 2022, barring something unforeseen.
Bucs RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn rushed 17 times for 53 yards and a touchdown and brought in both his targets for nine yards during the Buccaneers' 31-15 win over the Eagles in an NFC wild-card matchup Sunday.
With the combination of Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones out, Vaughn was tasked with playing a decently sized role. The second-year pro rushed for 53 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries as the lead back. In what will be a neutral game script next week against the Cardinals or Rams, Vaughn will look to be used less.
