Week 3: at Minnesota Vikings
All RB vs MIN
FBG says: Tough matchup. Doug Martin remains suspended for the Buccaneers so it will once again be Jacquizz Rodgers going up against the Vikings this week. Rodgers in his first game of the season last week had 19 carries before being pulled for Peyton Barber in the second half as the Buccaneers ran away with this game 29-7. There was some doubt heading into this game regarding Charles Sims role in this offense and whether he and Rodgers would be splitting carries these were largely put to rest as Sims had just two carries for two yards in the season opener for the Buccaneers.
The matchup for the Buccaneers this one is a relatively difficult one as they take on a Minnesota team that has allowed just 81 yards rushing per game which while it ranks 11th best in the NFL this season, they held LeVeon Bell to just 3.2 yards per carry on 27 attempts last week. This is a defensive line for the Vikings that is very strong led by Linval Joseph and Everson Griffen while Eric Kendricks at linebacker is off to a great start this season as well.
