Rachaad White Aiming For "Well Over" 1,000 Rushing Yards

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White posted 990 rushing yards last season, the highest rushing total for a Buccaneer since Doug Martin in 2015 (1,402). Heading into Year 3, White aims to go "well above" the 1,000-yard mark on the ground. "Obviously, my goal is to do whatever I can to help the team win," White said. "We've been last, or 25th to last the past five or six years when it comes to rushing, Tampa Bay has been down bad. My goal, and what I expect me to do, is turn that around." The Buccaneers lost offensive coordinator Dave Canales this offseason, so it will be interesting to see the offensive identity under Liam Cohen. The team selected fourth-round rookie Bucky Irving in the 2024 NFL Draft, but White should remain the clear RB1 and could continue to receive a healthy opportunity share. If he keeps a workhorse role, another top-10 fantasy football season is well within reach.

Rachaad White Impressed By Bucky Irving

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected former Oregon running back Bucky Irving in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, just months after Rachaad White finished his breakout campaign that consisted of 1,539 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns on 336 touches. White was a rare workhorse in today's NFL, so Irving is likely to get work behind him in 2024. When speaking about Irving, White said the two could be a great one-two punch. "Bucky does a great job of, first thing, competing, and two, learning," White said. "They're all brilliant and they all want to understand the game more, and things like that. We talk a lot. We've got a good relationship. It's huge. I think he brings a playmaker [ability] and in this offense, the more playmakers, the better. It'll be huge. The one-two punch would be nice." It will be interesting to see how offensive coordinator Liam Cohen distributes the backfield touches, but White should remain the clear starter in Tampa Bay. Irving is a Day 3 rookie who had a disappointing pre-draft process, so expectations should be tempered.

Rachaad White To Face More Competition In 2024

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White saw 75.3% of the team's running back carries and targets in 2023, but running back coach Skip Peete said there will be more competition for touches this season. Tampa Bay selected Oregon running back Bucky Irving in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, while Chase Edmonds and 2023 undrafted free agent Sean Tucker remain on the roster. Ultimately, none of the running backs behind White are expensive investments for the organization, and it's always tricky to know whether a coach is being transparent or just trying to motivate the players in his position room. White was the RB4 overall (PPR) last season behind 990 rushing yards, 549 receiving yards, and nine total touchdowns. Although he could see his rushing volume take a hit, his receiving skill set that he's flashed since his collegiate career at Arizona State should keep him on the field for high-yield fantasy situations.

Rachaad White Scores In Loss

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White made the most of his chances during Sunday's playoff matchup against the Detroit Lions. White didn't see his normal workload with the Bucs going pass-heavy in this game. He rushed nine times for 55 yards, while hauling in four of his five targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the loss. White established himself as the workhorse RB1 in this offense. However, White managed only 3.6 yards per carry while seeing the second most rushing attempts in the league. It wouldn't be shocking to see the Bucs bring in some competition for White this offseason. Barring any blockbuster moves, White should still be able to provide at least RB2 value heading into next season.

Rachaad White Likely To Remain Heavily Involved

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White continues to be the workhorse back in this offense. White has posted back-to-back games with over 70 rushing yards, which is nice to see. However, White hasn't seen much involvement in the passing game, which is hurting his fantasy value. He has also been held out of the end zone for three straight games. It won't get any easier for White in a divisional round matchup against the Detroit Lions this weekend. His high usage makes him an interesting DFS candidate, but the lack of pass-catching and scoring is a concern.

Rachaad White Puts Up 75 Yards In Playoff Win

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White rushed 18 times for 72 yards and caught one of his three targets for three yards in the 32-9 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Monday's Wild Card contest. White remained a high-volume running back in this spot, but he did not find the end zone, resulting in a down fantasy and DFS performance. Next week, he'll go on the road to face the Detroit Lions, who surrendered the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs during the regular season.

Jan 16, 2024 9:26 AM EST


Rachaad White A Viable Option For Wild-Card Round

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White has taken a major step forward during his second season. The 25-year-old rushed for 990 yards, which is double the yardage from his rookie campaign. Also, White found the end zone on the ground six times compared to his one score from last season. The Bucs have made White a focal point on offense with 20 or more carries in four of his last six games. The expectation is that the Bucs will continue to pound the ball with White during Monday's Wild-Card matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. White should make for a safe option in DFS contests this weekend.

Rachaad White Rushes For 75 Yards

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White (arm) didn't have a great outing on Sunday, but bounced back after a rough Week 17 performance. The young back was reportedly dealing with an arm injury during this game. That could be why Chase Edmonds saw a handful of carries on Sunday. White rushed 19 times for 75 yards, while hauling in four receptions for an additional 18 yards through the air. He did enough to help the Bucs get a victory over the Carolina Panthers and clinch a postseason spot. The good news is, White should continue seeing roughly 20 carries per game going into the postseason. However, the severity of the arm issue is unknown at the moment.

Rachaad White A Strong Option For Week 18

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White was held in check during last week's loss to the New Orleans Saints. The young back managed only 39 yards on the ground on 17 carries last Sunday. It was a tough day all around for the Bucs offense as they didn't even score until the fourth quarter. The hope is that this offense will turn it around against the Carolina Panthers in Week 18. Last time they played, White rushed for 84 yards and scored a touchdown. That being said, White should be able to produce decent numbers for DFS players. He has been active in both the rushing and receiving game all season long, so that should continue this weekend.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White has been playing extremely well over the last month or so. White has topped 100 yards or scored a touchdown in six straight games.

Fantasy managers are loving White right now as he's heating up at the best time of the season. He should be considered a low-end RB1 for the Week 16 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
