  • Rachaad White Will Have Expanded Role Against Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White should see an expanded in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, with teammate Leonard Fournette (hip) unlikely to play. He is set to be Tampa Bay's primary ball carrier and is coming off the best game of the season in Week 10. The 23-year-old logged a career-high 22 carries for 105 yards in the win over Seattle. White has a favorable matchup against the Browns. Cleveland ranks 27th in rush DVOA and has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs per game this season. Fantasy managers should plug and play White into their fantasy lineups in Week 12.

  • Bucs To Ride Hot Hand At Running Back

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said the team would ride the hot hand at running back between Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White. Fournette is "pretty sore" with a hip injury he suffered in the Germany game and was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. "We'll see how he (Fournette) progresses, and if he can go, he'll go; if he can't, he won't," said Bowles. White filled in admirably when Fournette exited early in the Germany game against the Seahawks, rushing 22 times for 105 yards. Tampa Bay will ride the hot hand, and White could see the lion's share of the carries from the Bucs backfield after his Week 10 performance. Fantasy managers can start Fournette and White as flex plays until the backfield situation sorts itself out within the next few weeks.

  • Rachaad White Expected To Start In Week 12?

    The Athletic's Greg Auman said that he expects Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Rachaad White to get the start when the team comes off their bye to face the Cleveland Browns. However, who gets more touches in Tampa's backfield the rest of the game will hinge on who produces between White and Leonard Fournette. White led the backfield in the win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany, carrying 22 times for 105 yards. Fournette had 14 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown and left in the fourth quarter with a hip pointer. Fournette is expected to be ready to go in Week 12, but it's clear that White's role is growing in the Bucs' offense. The 23-year-old should be picked up in all fantasy leagues if he's available, especially if you already have Fournette on your roster.

  • Rachaad White Starts, Rumbles For 105 Yards In Germany Game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White rushed for 105 yards on 22 carries and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany. The 23-year-old drew the start over Leonard Fournette and eclipsed the 100-yard mark in Sunday's victory. He could see an expanded role moving forward as Fournette exited Sunday's game early with a hip pointer. The severity of Fournette's injury is unknown, and he will undergo further evaluation. Tampa Bay has a bye in Week 11; the veteran back will have some extra time to recover. White earned more playing time with his performance in the Germany game and is considered a mid-range RB2 if Fournette is ruled out ahead of Week 12's matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Rachaad White To Take Over Bucs Backfield?

    The Athletic's Greg Auman predicts that Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Rachaad White will take over as the team's primary back by season's end. Leonard Fournette has disappointed this year, and his 3.3 yard-per-carry average is the worst in the NFL in the last three seasons. He doesn't have a run longer than 17 yards, and White is slowly seeing more work and reps. Fournette had more snaps than White in Week 9, but White had more rushing yards. Fournette will continue to lose work if he continues to underperform. He has only $2 million guaranteed on his 2023 base salary, but cutting him next year would result in $5 million in dead salary cap money, as opposed to an $8.5 million cap hit if they keep him. The bottom line is that White needs to be scooped up if he's available on your league's waiver wire.

  • Rachaad White Leads Bucs With 27 Rushing Yards

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White rushed for 27 yards on eight attempts while catching all three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Tampa Bay's ground game continues to disappoint, as White led the team in rushing with 27 yards. The rookie running back has recorded at least three receptions in four of the last five games. White continues to be involved in Tampa Bay's offense, but with the Bucs struggling to find running room most weeks, he is a flex play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

  • Rachaad White "Should Get Some More Plays"

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said he is not contemplating making rookie Rachaad White the team's lead back but that "he should get some more plays; we've always talked about it every week." White rushed six times for 24 yards and brought in one of two targets for eight yards in the Week 7 loss to the Carolina Panthers. "He does some good things with the ball in his hands; he does some good things when he's out there." White could see some extra touches against the Ravens on Thursday night, but Baltimore has been tough on opposing running backs this season and rank eighth in rush DVOA. The 23-year-old is mainly a flex option against the Ravens in Week 8.

  • Rachaad White A PPR Flex Against The Steelers

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White continues to have a complimentary teammate Leonard Fournette in the team's offense. He has caught eight of nine passes for 78 yards over the last two weeks. The 23-year-old plays a vital role in the passing game and makes an intriguing fantasy option against the Steelers in PPR formats. Pittsburgh ranks 18th in rush DVOA and 14th against opposing running backs in 2022. Tampa Bay is a pass-heavy offense that utilizes the backfield in the receiving game, making White a flex option in PPR formats in Week 6.

  • Rachaad White A Solid PPR Flex Option In Week 5

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White rushed three times for six yards and a touchdown, bringing in all five targets for 50 yards in the Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The 23-year-old logged a season-high 24 snaps and could have a vital role in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons. White has 21 yards on 11 rushing attempts and a touchdown while catching seven passes for 57 yards over four weeks. Buccaneers' offensive coordinator recently said he wanted to get White more involved in the offense. The rookie running back has a solid matchup as Atlanta's defense ranks 17th in rush DVOA this season. With the rash of injuries to the running back position overall, White can be used as a streamer, especially in PPR formats.

  • Rachaad White Catches Five Passes, Vultures TD In Week 4 Loss

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White rushed for six yards on three attempts while catching five passes for 50 yards in Sunday's 41-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The rookie running back was expected to see an increased role heading into Week 4. Tampa Bay fell behind early and had to abandon the running game altogether. White and backfield teammate Leonard Fournette had six rushing attempts combined. White had his best game of the season, catching five passes for 50 yards and culturing a one-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The 23-year-old is considered a flex play in a plus matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.

  • Bucs Want To Get Rachaad White More Involved

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said he will do more to get rookie running back Rachaad White more involved on game days. The Bucs had two false starts and a sack in the series that he played in the Week 3 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The third-round rookie only played six offensive snaps last week and only touched the ball on special teams. Through his first three NFL games, the 23-year-old has just eight carries for 15 yards and two receptions for seven yards. Tampa's coaching staff continues to say that they want to get White more involved behind starter Leonard Fournette, but we'll believe it when we see it. White might spell Lenny a bit more in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he doesn't have any standalone fantasy value just yet.

  • Rachaad White- Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White hasn't been a threat to Leonard Fournette's touches over two games in 2022. The rookie running back has rushed for 15 yards on eight carries while catching two of four targets for seven yards. Fournette is questionable with a hamstring injury but is expected to play in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers. The 23-year-old's role in Tampa Bay's offense solely relies on Fournette's health. He has played 26 total offensive snaps so far but is locked in as Fournette's top backup. White is not a fantasy option in Week 3 unless Fournette is surprisingly ruled out on Sunday.

  • Rachaad White Sees Just Two Touches In Week 2 Win

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Rachaad White carried the ball twice for just one yard and failed to haul in either of his targets in the passing game in the Week 2 win over the division-rival New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Leonard Fournette played 87 percent of the offensive snaps in the 20-10 victory and handled 24 carries, so there weren't many leftovers for White in what was mostly a defensive battle for the vast majority of the game. The 23-year-old rookie only played nine snaps in total compared to Fournette's 58. He is the primary backup and handcuff for Fournette's fantasy managers, but unless Fournette gets injured, it doesn't appear that White will have any standalone value.

  • Rachaad White- Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rachaad White rushed six times for 14 yards and brought in both targets for seven yards in his NFL debut against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. He could see an uptick in usage if Leonard Fournette (hamstring), questionable with a hamstring injury, cannot suit up for Week 2's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The 23-year-old played a complementary role behind Fournette, and fantasy managers can expect more of the same this Sunday. Unless Fournette is surprisingly inactive, White is mainly a flex option in deep-league PPR formats.
