Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers could beat out Doug Martin?

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 12:16:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers has received plenty of praise from teammates and coaches about exceptional vision, toughness and his versatility, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine, who adds "there's always the possibility" Rodgers could remain the starter after Doug Martin returns from his three-game suspension to begin the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers filled in nicely when called upon in 2016, but he is a longshot to overtake Martin if the latter is in his 2015 form - as general manager Jason Licht said he is. Rodgers' 129 carries last season were by far the most of his six-year career. He would do well to hit that mark as Martin's handcuff in 2017.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers expected to step up

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 12:52:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers is being counted on to "step up" for the first three games of the season while Doug Martin serves the remainder of his PED suspension from last season, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers, who reportedly dropped about seven pounds in the offseason, showed well when called upon in 2016. Owners looking to handcuff Martin should be looking initially at Rodgers, but his role beyond Week 3 is unclear. Still, he figures to be a popular DFS option early on and a solid play for zero-RB advocates in September.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers back with Tampa Bay

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:24:00 -0800

Free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers (Buccaneers) agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, March 9, worth $3.3 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has a solid option for the Buccaneers in 2016 and finished with 560 yards and two touchdowns. He should continue to have a solid role in the offense and could have a chance to start depending on what the team does with Doug Martin. He probably should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers likely to stay

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 07:17:58 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers is expected to re-sign with the Buccaneers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: With Doug Martin's situation with the team up in the air, Rodgers could be an RB3 flyer in fantasy drafts. He'll have value in any event. Stay tuned throughout the offseason to see how it unfolds.

Buccaneers | Coach hopes Jacquizz Rodgers returns

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 17:02:51 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said he hopes the team will be able to re-sign impending free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers did not start the season as the starter but received a better role during the season and finished as the team's leading rusher with 560 yards. Rodgers probably would have a decent chance for the starting job if he returns to Tampa and would be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers to carry the load

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 20:45:28 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers is expected to see a heavy workload against the Carolina Panthers in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have paved the way for Rodgers to lead the backfield, and when he started against Carolina earlier in the year, he topped 100 yards on the ground. He should sneak into RB2 territory in Week 17.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin benching explained

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 18:06:45 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was inactive against the New Orleans Saints in Week 16 because head coach Dirk Koetter believed RB Jacquizz Rodgers would be a better fit for the matchup, and Koetter said it was a "decision for today."

Fantasy Tip: It is no secret that Martin has struggled since returning from injury, and there is no guarantee he will play in Week 17. Even if he does suit up, fantasy owners should look for a safer option.

Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers leads slow running game

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 23:52:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries Saturday, Dec. 24, in a 31-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: With Doug Martin off the canvas due to a coach's decision (it was not injury-related), Rodgers will likely see a larger role in Week 17 if Martin doesn't play. And with the Buccaneers nearly out of playoff contention, they may not rush Martin back. Rodgers could see a larger chunk of time in the coming game as well.
