Buccaneers' Jacquizz Rodgers: In line for extended action in coming weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers' workload should see a significant bump in light of Ian Rapoport of NFL Network's report that Doug Martin will miss approximately three weeks with a hamstring injury.

The veteran back will thus be thrown right into the fire with the Bucs after just having signed on Sep. 13, two days following the opener. Rodgers received two carries after Martin exited Sunday's game with his injury and is now expected to serve as a change-of-pace option to Charles Sims in the coming weeks, essentially filling Sims' role when Martin is active. Rodgers served as a primary back for the Falcons over five games back in 2013, rushing for 194 yards on an average of 3.3 yards per carry, while also adding 152 yards on 24 receptions and scoring four total touchdowns. The initial expectation is that Sims will receive the majority of carries, but a much closer timeshare is not out of the question depending on how matters unfold.

Buccaneers' Jacquizz Rodgers: Pressed into action in Week 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rodgers gained 29 yards on two carries and failed to secure his only target in Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cardinals.

The veteran back, who'd just arrived in Tampa on Tuesday, was summoned to action in the blowout loss after Doug Martin exited with a hamstring injury. Charles Sims still paced the Bucs backfield in touches, but Rodgers managed to rip off a 24-yard run on one of his two carries. If Martin's injury lingers into Week 3, Rodgers should certainly stand to see an expanded role against the Rams.

Jacquizz Rodgers: Signing one-year deal with Bucs on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rodgers is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Bucs on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran back will provide quality depth behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims at the third running back spot, a role that was filled by undrafted rookie Peyton Barber in the opener against the Falcons. Rodgers had worked out for the Bucs last week, but the team opted to wait until Tuesday to sign him so as not to be on the hook for his 2016 salary if he's released before the end of the season. The six-year pro has 1,157 yards and five touchdowns on the ground over his first five seasons, along with 156 receptions for 1,114 yards and another five scores. Rodgers is also capable of handling kickoff returns-- tallying 49 runbacks in the 2012-13 seasons with the Falcons under then-Atlanta head coach and current defensive coordinator Mike Smith-- but has notably only been deployed in that capacity once in each of his last two seasons.

Jacquizz Rodgers: Informed of released by Bears Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was informed by the Bears that he'll be released Saturday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rodgers appeared to be in line for significant work as a third-down back for the team, but he played poorly throughout the preseason. He'll look to find work elsewhere as a pass-receiving back.

Bears' Jacquizz Rodgers: Unimpressive in preseason finale Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers had eight carries for 15 yards, but failed to catch either of his two pass targets Thursday against the Browns.

Playing with the backups, Rodgers certainly did little to inspire the coaching staff that he'll be very effective if given a larger role behind Jeremy Langford in the regular season. However, should Langford struggle in pass protection, Rodgers would easily be the team's best option as a third down back, and that's the scenario in which he could have his best fantasy value.
