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.
