He saw extra snaps this week with the Bucs trailing big for most of the contest.

He had a bad drop on a screen play in the 4th quarter.
2019 Week 8 vs TEN (1 / -2 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Ogunbowale got a couple of goal line opportunities in the 2nd quarter. He was targeted on an out route in the end zone that was well defended, and then he got a carry from the goal line that was stopped short by Breshad Perriman, who mistakenly came across the formation in motion, running over Ogunbowale as he was taking the handoff from Winston. Ogunbowale was targeted again inside the 5 yard line at the end of the 2nd quarter on a short out route that he could not secure. Ogunbowale only secured one target for a short(but hard-earned) 3 yards that picked up a first down on the Bucs' final drive of the game.
2019 Week 9 vs SEA (1 / 1 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Ogunbowale got his usual work in hurry-up situations at the end of each half, managing a touchdown on one of his two touches. He hauled in a dumpoff pass from Winston for a 12 yard catch and run late in the 4th quarter with the team driving to tie the game. Ogunbowale capped the drive with a one yard touchdown plunge after Mike Evans was tackled inches short of the end zone, sending the game to overtime.
