2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a moderately successful rookie season in which he ran for 205 yards and caught 21 passes for 188 yards, Rodgers is slated for an expanded role in the Falcons offense in 2012. The question is how expanded will his role become? The Falcons 5th round pick in the 2011 draft, Rodgers lacks ideal size (5í6Ē, 196 pounds) to assume a heavy workload in the teamís offense and with Michael Turner doing the heavy lifting, Rodgers will likely get 6-8 touches per game. Thatís not enough to make him a useful fantasy option. Even if Turner were to be lost to injury, Rodgers would almost certainly split the workload with Jason Snelling with Snelling assuming the short yardage role. While some are predicting a Darren Sproles type role for Rodgers, he lacks the speed that Sproles possesses. Do you get the feeling Iím not excited at the prospect of Rodgers having an expanded role? Heís a lower tier RB4 with more appeal in larger PPR leagues that employ the flex position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Doug Martin to be inactive Week 17     -- Tue Dec 27 10:30 am --

Future with the Bucs in doubt
Two days after being benched for the first time in his pro career, Doug Martin's season appears to be over and his future with the Bucs is in doubt. Martin, the two-time Pro Bowl running back who was told to take a seat for the Bucs' 31-24 loss to the Saints on Saturday, will not be active for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Panthers. (Tampa Bay Times)

FF Today's Take: Martin has fallen out of favor in Tampa which led to Jacquizz Rodgers receiving the majority of the snaps against the Saints in Week 16. It appears Rodgers will be in line for another big workload in Week 17 against the Panthers. The Bucs are expected to sign RB Russell Hansbrough off the Giants practice squad.
Injury Charles Sims due back Week 14     -- Mon Dec 5 7:40 pm --

Set to come off IR

FF Today's Take: Sims' return is good news for an offense that once was down to Peyton Barber, but it is unclear if Jacquizz Rodgers has taken his pass-catching role from him or not. Rodgers has been the Bucs' most efficient runner this season by a wide margin, so owners shouldn't assume Sims is going to come back and tear it up in the same way he did late last season. Sims is worth an add in all leagues, but his role needs to be defined before he should be started in fantasy.
Injury Bucs welcome pair of RBs back to practice     -- Wed Nov 23 7:23 pm --

Bucs must decide on Charles Sims within next 21 days
TAMPA, Fla. -- Buccaneers running backs Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers returned to practice Wednesday. Sims has been on injured reserve since suffering a knee injury in Week 4, but he has been designated as the team's player to return from IR. The Buccaneers have 21 days to decide whether to activate Sims and add him to the 53-man roster. (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: Doug Martin has 40 carries in the two games he has played since returning from his own injury and is locked in at the top of the depth chart. He should continue to be a RB2 even after reinforcements arrive but fantasy owners should be weary of the potential for a RBBC to develop in the coming weeks. Jacquizz Rodgers is nearing a return and could step into a complementary role similar to Sims' earlier this season but his status for Week 12 remains up in the air. A return by Charles Sims in the next three weeks would only add another useful option for Tampa to mix into the offense so stay tuned as this situation evolves.
Injury Jacquizz Rodgers still in walking boot     -- Mon Nov 7 11:45 am --

Foot injury

FF Today's Take: The Bucs have cycled through a number of running backs this season with Doug Martinm, Charles Sims and Rodgers all suffering significant injuries. It could be the Peyton Barber show in Week 10 against the Bears. If so, he'll be on the RB2 radar.
Injury Jacquizz Rodgers ruled out by Bucs     -- Wed Nov 2 2:49 pm --

Foot injury leaves Bucs with RBBC
The Buccaneers wonít have Jacquizz Rodgers in the lineup against the Falcons on Thursday night. Rodgers injured his foot in last Sundayís loss to the Raiders and there was enough concern about his condition that the Bucs moved quickly to bring Mike James back into the organization. Rodgers was ruled out with the release of the Buccaneersí official injury report for the NFC South matchup. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: After losing their top three running backs, Tampa Bay heads into Thursday night hoping that Peyton Barber, Antone Smith and Mike James can form a productive RBBC. Both Barber and Smith received touches last week and would likely split the bulk of the workload Week 9.
Injury Ankle injury may cost Jacquizz some time     -- Mon Oct 31 11:00 am --

Antone Smith waiver wire priority
The Bucs, already with their top two running backs sidelined, might have lost starter Jacquizz Rodgers to a foot injury late in Sunday's 30-24 overtime loss to the Raiders. "I don't think it's probably good," coach Dirk Koetter said after the game. "But I don't know for sure. It's something to do with his ankle." (Tampa Bay Times)

FF Today's Take: Peyton Barber and veteran Antone Smith are next up on the roster, with Smith handling most of work when Rodgers went down yesterday. Smith should be the favored waiver wire priority until we get a better handle on the Bucs RB rotation.
