RB - TB
Week 8 Outlook
Buccaneers RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn rushed five times for 42 yards and did not catch his lone target in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Packers.
With Ronald Jones having a terrific game, Vaughn was playing the change of pace role and did not contribute in fantasy. Vaughn's role will diminish even more once Leonard Fournette returns.
Buccaneers RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn caught 2-of-3 targets for five yards in Thursday night's Week 5 loss to the Bears.
Even with Leonard Fournette active as an emergency back, Vaughn did not get a ton of opportunities. While he did not receive a single carry, he also only drew three targets, hauling in two of them for five yards. Vaughn will be just a guy once Fournette is ready to go.
Buccaneers RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn (chest) is questionable to return to Thursday night’s game against the Bears.
Vaughn took a big hit from Kyle Fuller at the end of the first half that resulted in a catch and fumble. He left the field prior to halftime and is now questionable to return with a chest injury. It’ll be Ronald Jones II soaking up all the work the remainder of the game, with Leonard Fournette available in emergency situations.
Buccaneers RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn rushed the ball three times for four yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Chargers.
With Leonard Fournette sidelined and Kenjon Barner and LeSean McCoy suffering in-game injuries, Vaughn saw his first meaningful playing time of the season on offense. He managed 26 total yards on his five touches. Vaughn will need Ronald Jones to falter or injuries to the running back room to garner fantasy relevancy in 2020.
Bucs coach Bruce Arians says rookie RB Ke'shawn Vaughn could contribute as a kick returner come Week 1.
Vaughn was a highly thought of fantasy prospect as recently as a month ago. However, the signing of veteran LeSean McCoy combined with Vaughn missing time while on the reserve/COVID-19 list has hindered his value. Ronald Jones appears to be "the guy" in Tampa Bay.
