Week 7: at San Francisco 49ers

All RB vs SF

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. With both Charles Sims (to IR October 10 due to a knee injury) and Doug Martin (hamstring injury, missed practice on Monday, October 17) out of action in Week Five, Tampa asked Jacquizz Rodgers to carry the load in Carolina. Rodgers did so quite well (30/101/0 rushing with six targets for 5/28/0 receiving), with a little help from Peyton Barber (3/6/0 rushing) and Jameis Winston (4/6/0). All told the Buccaneers had 37/113/0 rushing at Carolina on the way to a 17-14 win. Stay tuned to's Players in the News to see if Martin can practice later in the week - if he remains out, it looks like the Buccaneers will go with Rodgers as their lead back again. San Francisco's defensive front was flattened by the Bills' backs last week, with 44/312/4 rushing allowed in a 16-45 blowout loss. The 49ers allowed 37/172/2 rushing to the Cardinals two weeks ago - they are a catastrophe in this phase of the game right now, ranking dead last in the NFL averaging 174.3 yards rushing allowed per week, with nine rushing scores handed out to date. Over the past three weeks opposing running backs have racked up 35.3 fantasy points per game against the 49ers, by far most allowed per game in the league during that time span. Advantage, Tampa Bay.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs CAR (30 / 101 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 28 / 0 rec)

Rodgers carried the load at running back for the Bucs in Doug Martin and Charles Sims' absence. Tampa Bay appeared committed to running the ball and eating up clock with extended drives all night. He carried the rock 30 times, getting 6 straight carries to start the game out for the Bucs. Rodgers was fairly effective against Carolina's stout front 7, picking up 2 first downs with those first 6 carries and setting up the play action passing game for Winston. Rodgers got all the carries he could handle during the 1st quarter as the Bucs ran him again and again. He regularly converted 1st downs and did a great job of taking what was given to him by the stout Carolina D-line and linebackers. Rodgers continued to carry the load late into the 4th quarter, picking up a crucial 3rd down conversion on the Bucs' game winning drive with a catch out of the backfield. He also picked up another 1st down run and another 15 yards by drawing a facemask penalty from Panthers DE Kony Ealy. In addition to his 30 carries, Rodgers secured 5 of his 6 targets in the passing game for 28 yards.

2016 Week 4 vs DEN (6 / 25 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Rodgers entered the game late in the 1st quarter in relief of Sims, and broke his first carry for the Bucs' biggest run of the day, 12 yards right up the middle. Rodgers had an even bigger run later in the 2nd quarter that converted 3rd and 8, but the play was negated by a holding penalty. Rogers finished the day with 6 carries for 25 yards, and caught 1 of 2 targets for 4 yards.

2016 Week 3 vs LA (5 / 15 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Rodgers saw some limited work in relief of Charles Sims, and had a few nice runs. He picked up a 3rd down conversion in the 2nd quarter on 3rd and 1 and followed it up with an 8 yard reception on the next play, his only target of the day. Rodgers did get a couple of goal-line snaps, but was used primarily as a decoy for play-action plays. Rogers also returned kickoffs in Cecil Shorts' absence.

2016 Week 2 vs ARI (2 / 29 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Rodgers saw some action in the 2nd half of the game, coming in to relieve Charles Sims after Doug Martin left with a hamstring injury. He picked up 5 yards up the middle on his first carry of the game, then ripped off a 24 yard run on a pitch to the right side of the field two plays later. Rodgers was targeted once out of the backfield by a scrambling Winston, but the ball was overthrown.
