Buccaneers Re-Sign Chase Edmonds

Monday, March 11, 9:40 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are re-signing running back Chase Edmonds to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday, according to a source. Edmonds will return to Tampa in 2024 as a backfield complement to Rachaad White, who should continue to command most of the running back touches for the Bucs in 2024. The 27-year-old Edmonds played in only 13 games in his first year with Tampa in 2023 and had just 49 carries for 176 yards and no touchdowns, adding 14 receptions for an additional 81 yards through the air. Unless White suffers an injury, Edmonds will be little more than a deep-league handcuff in fantasy. The Buccaneers also have Sean Tucker in the RB room and could add to the position in the upcoming NFL draft.

Lions Want To Use Jahmyr Gibbs More As A Receiver

Friday, May 31, 2:03 PM

It's clear that the Detroit Lions want second-year running back Jahmyr Gibbs to be more involved in their offense in 2024 after he rushed for almost 1,000 yards as a rookie and finished third in the league in yards per carry (5.2). Heading into his second year, the Lions are looking for more consistency out of Gibbs, mainly in pass protection, as he was graded 61st out of 63 qualified RBs in pass-blocking in 2023 by PFF. The Lions also want Gibbs to be more involved in the passing game, even though he was in the top 10 among RBs with 52 catches and 71 targets in 2023. His average depth of target, per PFF, was literally zero yards, so Detroit will be looking to use him more in the slot and deeper down the field in 2024. With David Montgomery still in town, Gibbs' ceiling will remain somewhat limited, but if he's more involved as a pass-catcher deeper down the field, he'll still have RB1 upside in PPR leagues.
