Buccaneers | Charles Sims set for big workload?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:01:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers said he only expects to play when RB Charles Sims needs a breather.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Sims will see plenty of touches against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3, and he is a RB2 candidate, especially in PPR formats.

Bears | Jacquizz Rodgers released by Chicago

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 14:28:35 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jacquizz Rodgers was released Saturday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was reportedly in the running for third-down duties in Chicago, but Jeremy Langford showed enough improvement in the passing game during the preseason to make Rodgers expendable. He should resurface on another roster in the near future but is not worth a look in fantasy.

Bears | Hot RB will be leaned on in Chicago

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 07:39:50 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford, RB Ka'Deem Carey, RB Jordan Howard and RB Jacquizz Rodgers will be part of a committee in the backfield, and head coach John Fox plans to limit their workloads and ride the hot hand. The team wants Langford to run with a wider base and gain more yards after contact. Carey needs to build on his toughness and become a more complete back. Both figure to be part of the committee approach. Howard adds a bruiser skill set in short-yardage and goal line situations.

Fantasy Tip: The reporter scribed that it "promises to be hell for fantasy football owners." Langford figures to be the leader of the pack, but he's not someone you can depend on week to week unless he takes off from the gate. He's a high-end RB3 in fantasy that could be maligned to good matchups for a flex play. Carey and Howard are RB5 projects that you can grab in hopes that they become said hot hand. Rodgers has a ways to go before he's an intriguing chip in fantasy with three backs possibly ahead of him.

Bears | Chicago to use committee backfield

Fri, 20 May 2016 11:23:24 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford will battle with RBs Jordan Howard, Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for touches in a crowded backfield during offseason workouts. Head coach John Fox is intent on running with a committee approach after the departure of RB Matt Forte. Langford has a leg up after scoring seven touchdowns in his rookie season. However, he had only 3.6 yards per carry and 1.13 yards after contact, which ranked second to last out of 47 players with 100 carries, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Langford must also work on improving his hands after struggling with drops in 2015. Howard's bruising style appeals to the team as a complement to Langford's speed. Carey is the only back that wasn't acquired by the current coaching staff, and he's being pushed to become more versatile and to play better on third downs. Rodgers it the veteran and could be trusted more than any other rusher on third downs early in the year.

Fantasy Tip: This makes things a little frustrating for fantasy owners, and it could be a fluid situation in terms of touches, at least early in the year. Langford has the leg up and should be the first back of this group drafted in fantasy leagues. He has more appeal in PPR formats as an RB3. Howard is a wildcard that could vulture touchdowns from Langford and is an RB5 flyer in standard-scoring leagues. Carey and Rodgers would likely need an injury to see significant touches and are mainly handcuffs.

Bears | Jacquizz Rodgers re-signs with Bears

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 14:14:13 -0800

Free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers (Bears) is re-signing to an undisclosed deal with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Forte may be gone, but Jeremy Langford and KaDeem Carey should still be ahead of Rodgers in Chicago's backfield. Plus, the Bears could still add another running back. Rodgers has minimal fantasy value in his current situation, but he does provide a little bit of a fantasy pulse in PPR leagues.

Bears | Jacquizz Rodgers visits Windy City

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 08:58:07 -0700

Free-agent RB Jacquizz Rodgers (Falcons) is visiting the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers could see light work in tandem with RB Matt Forte, should the former Falcon sign with the Bears, but there is no fantasy value to be found in drafting Rodgers at this point.
