Fantasy football: Evaluating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers backfield

Despite their 1-6 record and near-bottom ranking of NFL rushing offenses, the Tampa Bay backfield is, surprisingly, still a place of intrigue for many fantasy football owners. Much of this stems from their frustration with the highly-ranked preseason running back, Doug Martin. With only one double-digit scoring performance this season, Martin has struggled to produce any...

Should Fantasy Owners Trust Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey in Their Line Up?

A couple weeks ago Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey appeared to be the free agent pick up of the season. After taking over for an injured/ineffective Doug Martin he ran for 144 yards and caught three passes for an additional 30 against the Rams. Yeah, fantasy owners would have loved it if he could have scored a touchdown or two, but no one is going to turn away that...

Bobby Rainey follows Andre Brown in the 30+ touch debut category. What to expect moving forward (Week 11 Touches)

Running Back Touches Week 11 Coming into the week I’d projected a near 50/50 timeshare between Brian Leonard and Bobby Rainey with Leonard leading things for the first game or two; presumably ceding carries to the higher-upside back down the stretch.

Personally, I went the Milli Vanilli route because I see Bobby Rainey more fraud than Grammy winner. Now and...
