Rachaad White Scores In Loss

Sunday, January 21, 9:12 PM

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.

Roschon Johnson Gets Five Carries To End Season

Sunday, January 7, 10:42 PM

Chicago Bears running back Roschon Johnson wrapped up his rookie season in limited fashion, rushing five times for 20 yards in the team's 17-9 loss to the Packers in Week 18. The 2023 fourth-round pick ended his first season with 332 rushing yards on over four yards per attempt along with 209 receiving yards. Despite having to fight for opportunities with veterans Khalil Herbert and D'Onta Foreman, Johnson showed what he can do in the passing game this year and looks to be a weapon for this team to utilize going forward. While he never gained a consistent enough role to be valuable to fantasy managers, Johnson should have more opportunity next year if the team doesn't make a big move for a running back. Like most rookie running backs, he was never completely unleashed and will look to take a step forward in a bigger role in 2024.
