Player Outlook
The Buccaneers did just about everything they could this offseason to give White an opportunity to shine. They cut Leonard Fournette and ignored the running back position in the NFL Draft. Now White will have to prove that he's worth featuring in the offense. As a rookie, White saw his role flourish after Week 10 and he finished as the RB26 from then on. A big component to White's success were his 50 receptions - top 12 at the RB position -- despite his limited workload early in the season. No matter who wins the job at QB, White won't see near the same passing volume as he did with Tom Brady. White struggled with efficiency metrics as a runner, but that was at least in part due to a Buccaneers offensive line that was crumpled with injuries. If you want to gamble on White's talent and potential role, you'll have to do so in Round 6.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Solid all-around day in win

    White rushed 15 times for 56 yards and secured all three targets for 22 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-9 win over the Saints on Sunday. White put together a trademark two-way performance, turning in a workman-like effort on the ground while making his usual complementary contributions as a receiver. The second-year back has no fewer than 14 carries or two catches in any of his first four games, and even though backfield mate Ke'Shawn Vaughn saw nine carries Sunday, there's no questioning White's role as the Bucs' lead back heading into the team's Week 5 bye.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Todd Bowles didn't exactly give White a vote of confidence this week but did openly suggest his back needs to accept smaller gains in hopes of breaking longer ones as the game goes on. White doesn't have a rush longer than 13 yards this year, so it's tough to buy into him breaking many long ones, period. If White were to be effective for Fantasy, it would come on large volume in a low-scoring game with a touchdown. That's possible, but not exactly what you want to count on in your lineups. Just outside of my top 24 running backs, I'd rather chance it with Isiah Pacheco, Alexander Mattison and Javonte Williams.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: RBs to Sit

    So far this season, White had a huge game in Week 2 against Chicago with 21.3 PPR points sandwiched by two dud games against Minnesota (6.9 PPR points) and Philadelphia (7.2 PPR points). His matchup in Week 4 at New Orleans feels like it will have another disappointing outcome, and the Saints have yet to allow a running back to score a touchdown this season in matchups with Derrick Henry, Miles Sanders and A.J. Dillon. In PPR, White remains a high-end flex since he has eight catches on eight targets in his past two outings, but he's averaging just 3.1 yards per carry and has one touchdown, which makes him tough to trust as a starter in all formats.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Inefficient night in Week 3 loss

    White rushed 14 times for 38 yards and secured all three targets for 24 yards in the Buccaneers' 25-11 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. He also lost a fumble and was tackled for a safety. White was stymied repeatedly on the ground by an Eagles defense that came in allowing the fewest rushing yards per game, and he was only able to partly make up for it with his work as a receiver. The second-year back has now averaged under 3.0 yards per carry in two of his first three games while running behind a makeshift offensive line, and White's outlook doesn't get much brighter Week 4 with the Saints defense on tap in what projects to be a difficult road matchup.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Strong all-around numbers in win

    White rushed 17 times for 73 yards and a touchdown and brought in all five targets for 30 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-17 win over the Bears on Sunday. White once again served as the clear leader of the ground attack, and he made up for an inefficient opener with solid per-touch efficiency as well as with his first touchdown of the season on a four-yard run early in the second quarter. White's volume as both runner and receiver Sunday is likely close to ideal for the Buccaneers' purposes, although the second-year back certainly has the ability to shoulder a 20-plus-carry workload if necessary. White next sets his sights on a tough Eagles defense that comes into Tampa Bay for a Week 3 showdown Monday night, Sept. 25.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: RBs to Start

    White should be looking at a hefty workload in Week 1 at Minnesota as he starts his sophomore campaign as the lead running back in Tampa Bay. And when he got a lot of work as a rookie he was successful. There were five games in 2022 when White had at least 15 total touches, and he averaged 13.6 PPR points per game over that span. Minnesota has a new-look defense this season under coordinator Brian Flores, but last year the Vikings struggled with pass-catching running backs like White. I like White as a must-start running back in PPR and 0.5-PPR leagues and a flex in non-PPR this week.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Ends preseason on high note

    White took seven carries for 39 yards and caught his only target for two yards in Saturday's 26-20 preseason win over Baltimore. White got the start and played every snap on the two drives Baker Mayfield and Chris Godwin played. The second-year RB stayed on the field after those two and took a bunch of carries on the next drive with a mixed unit of starters and backups, eventually finishing his night with 41 yards on eight touches. While it remains unclear how things will shake out behind him, there's no doubt White will open the season as the lead back when the Bucs travel to Minnesota in Week 1.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Not playing Friday

    White isn't expected to play in Friday's preseason game versus the Steelers, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. White is the lone Buccaneers running back not suiting up for their preseason opener, which will allow Chase Edmonds, Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Sean Tucker, Patrick Laird and Ronnie Brown to man the backfield. After racking up 121 touches for 519 yards from scrimmage and two receiving TDs in the final eight regular-season games of 2022, White is slated to be Tampa Bay's lead runner in the coming campaign.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Lofty goals for '23

    White, who's primed to serve as the Buccaneers' lead back this coming season, has set a goal of becoming the team's first 1,000-yard rusher since Doug Martin in 2015, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. White made his proclamation during an appearance on NFL Network's Good Morning Football on Friday, acknowledging the amount of seasons it's been since the team had a runner reach the 1,000-yard mark and adding, "I want to, of course, eclipse that." White was on the field for just 39 percent of the Buccaneers' offensive snaps as a rookie in 2022, but with Leonard Fournette now off the roster following his March release, the path to primary early down duties is clear. Also expected to work in White's favor is the fact new offensive coordinator Dave Canales is expected to place more emphasis on the running game than predecessor Byron Leftwich after Tampa Bay finished last in the league last season with 75.6 rushing yards per game.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Poised to lead backfield

    As the Buccaneers' offseason program commences this week, White profiles as the team's No. 1 running back, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports. With last season's top rusher Leonard Fournette no longer with the team, White appears poised to see an expanded role this coming season in a Tampa Bay backfield that also includes Ke'Shawn Vaughn, Chase Edmonds and Patrick Laird. It's possible that the Bucs could add RB depth in the upcoming NFL Draft, but as things stand, White, who has drawn the praise of GM Jason Licht this offseason, appears to be in a position have an opportunity to secure a lead role, a context that would yield increased volume for the 2022 third-rounder, who carried 129 times for 481 yards and a TD while adding 50 catches (on 58 targets) for 290 yards and a pair of receiving scores in 17 games last season.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Garners 77 total yards in loss

    White rushed seven times for 41 yards and secured four of six targets for 36 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-14 wild-card loss to the Cowboys on Monday night. White logged two more carries than veteran backfield mate Leonard Fournette and was considerably more productive, averaging 5.9 yards per carry to his teammate's 2.2 figure. White also continued to demonstrate his value as a pass catcher after finishing the regular season with 50 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns alongside 481 rushing yards and a score on 129 carries through 17 games. Looking ahead to 2023, White could take on a clear lead-back role, although with Fournette holding a manageable cap hit of $8.5 million, he might return as well.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Four carries in finale

    White rushed four times for 15 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. White was one of several Buccaneers offensive starters who put in less than a full workday in a game that was nothing more than a postseason tune-up for Tampa Bay. The rookie should enjoy a solid role in next weekend's home wild-card matchup after logging double-digit carries and receptions in three of the four games prior to Sunday's finale.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Logs 16 total touches in win

    White carried 11 times for 22 yards and brought in all five targets for 26 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-24 win over the Panthers on Sunday. White was stymied on the ground but was able to make some solid contributions through the air. The rookie's touch count outpaced Leonard Fournette's by two, although as past weeks have shown, that can change from game to game. It remains to be seen what White's Week 18 workload against the Falcons will be, as whether the Buccaneers can improve playoff positioning with a victory will likely be a major factor.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Struggles in start

    White rushed 11 times for 38 yards and caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Bengals. It was a tough draw on paper for White and the Buccaneers' rushing attack, and the matchup lived up to the billing. White technically started the contest, but he saw a near-even split in touches with Leonard Fournette (12 to 14). The third-round pick from this year's draft has performed adequately since taking on a larger role to help the struggling Fournette, but neither back can truly thrive while the other cannibalizes carries. Both White and Fournette should be considered fringe fantasy options ahead of Sunday's tilt against Arizona.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    White and Leonard Fournette aren't great starts in non- and 0.5-PPR leagues this week, but they are worth using as at least flex options in PPR. What happened in Week 13 against New Orleans is probably a sign of things to come for Week 14 at San Francisco with how Tom Brady leaned on both running backs in the passing game. White had six catches for 41 yards and a touchdown on eight targets against the Saints, and Fournette had six catches for 32 yards on seven targets. The Buccaneers won't run on the 49ers, but White and Fournette should make plays in the passing game.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Sleeper RBs

    White can be an amazing Fantasy asset if Leonard Fournette (foot) is out. Fournette missed practice Friday, and his status for Week 14 at San Francisco is now in doubt. Without Fournette, White would be a top-15 running back in all leagues, with his value higher in PPR. Fournette was out in Week 12 at Cleveland, and White had 14 carries for 64 yards, along with nine catches for 45 yards on nine targets. But if Fournette plays then White is a low-end PPR option and at least a flex play in all formats. What happened in Week 13 against New Orleans is probably a sign of things to come for Week 14 with how Tom Brady leaned on both running backs in the passing game. White had six catches for 41 yards and a touchdown on eight targets against the Saints, and Fournette had six catches for 32 yards on seven targets. The Buccaneers won't run on the 49ers, but White and Fournette should make plays in the passing game.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: More competition for reps

    White will welcome back Leonard Fournette (hip) for Monday's game versus the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Fournette sat out Week 12 due to a hip pointer, which pushed White into the lead role in the Buccaneers backfield over the team's last two contests. During that span, the rookie racked up 36 carries for 168 yards, nine catches on nine targets for 45 yards and no touchdowns. White will cede some reps to Fournette in his return, but his recent success should keep him in the game plan.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Logs 23 touches in start

    White rushed 14 times for 64 yards and secured all nine targets for 45 yards in the Buccaneers' 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns on Sunday. White drew the start with Leonard Fournette (hip) out of action and delivered nicely as both a runner and receiver. The matchup on the ground wasn't as welcoming as it appeared on paper coming in, however, as White gained only 29 yards on 13 carries outside of a game-long 35-yard run. Nevertheless, the rookie's stellar work as a receiver led to a very productive fantasy day overall, as well as the second-highest reception tally on the Buccaneers for the day. Even if Fournette is able to suit up for a Week 13 Monday night home divisional matchup against the Saints, it's highly likely White fills the role of top back for that contest.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Locked in as Week 12 starter

    White is scheduled to make his second consecutive start Sunday against the Browns with Leonard Fournette (hip) having been downgraded from doubtful to out in advance of the contest, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Even before Fournette departed in the fourth quarter of the Buccaneers' last game Week 10 in London against the Seahawks, White appeared to work his way into a timeshare with the veteran back. The rookie provided a spark to a rushing attack that had languished for most of the season, carrying 22 times for 105 yards in the Buccaneers' 21-16 win. With Fournette not yet healthy coming out of a Week 11 bye, White looks like he'll be the clear lead runner for Tampa Bay on Sunday, with Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Giovani Bernard offering depth behind him. Though White has displayed some pass-catching chops with 20 receptions for 135 yards on 25 targets this season, Bernard is an accomplished third-down back in his own right. With that in mind, the Buccaneers might not be eager to hand White a true three-down workload Sunday, so his fantasy ceiling this week may be lower in PPR formats. White profiles as a strong option in the majority of leagues nonetheless while he faces off against a Browns defense that has struggled to stop the run this season.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Sleeper RBs

    Leonard Fournette (hip) is considered doubtful for Week 12 at Cleveland, which means White will take over as the lead running back for Tampa Bay coming off the bye in Week 11. Now, White gets to build off his last game when he was the best running back for the Buccaneers in Week 10 against Seattle in Germany. Fournette injured his hip against the Seahawks, and White finished the game with 22 carries for 105 yards. White can run away with the starting job if he plays well against the Browns. And Cleveland has allowed five running backs to score at least 12 PPR points in the past three games.
