Rachaad White Totals 100 Yards

Sunday, November 26, 8:28 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White (knee) was uncertain coming into this game as he popped up on the injury report on Saturday. Despite that, White suited up and played well against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12. The young back rushed 15 times for 100 yards, while hauling in two receptions for an additional 10 yards. This performance marked the first time that White has hit 100 yards on the ground since Week 4. The Bucs should continue giving White carries at a high rate going forward. Fantasy managers should consider White a high-end RB2 for a favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers next week.

James Cook Piles Up 100 More Yards

Monday, November 27, 12:36 AM

Buffalo Bills running back James Cook could have enjoyed a much bigger fantasy day in Sunday's 37-34 overtime defeat to Philadelphia Eagles, compiling 16 carries for 43 yards with a season-high six receptions for 57 yards. Cook dropped a beautifully floated pass from quarterback Josh Allen on a wheel route in the first quarter, squandering a would-be touchdown. Cook remained heavily involved as a receiver for the rest of the contest in spite of that, recording season-high receiving numbers across the board, which is a promising development for those hoping to see the Bills utilize Cook's elusiveness. It was always likely to be tough sledding for the 24-year-old in wet conditions against Philadelphia's vaunted rushing defense, but it was also encouragingly Cook's third consecutive 100-yard performance. Barring a post-bye Leonard Fournette elevation from the practice squad, Cook should remain a fine RB2 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 10.
