Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey gets limited work Week 6
by Chris Cwik |

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey received limited work Week 6.

Rainey had only seven carries for 42 yards. While he performed well when running the ball, the Bucs had to abandon the run game early. By halftime, the team was down 35-0. Rainey was targeted three times in the passing game, but failed to come up with a catch. Rainey is on a bye Week 7.

Touchdown doesn't change much for Bobby Rainey
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Yes, Bobby Rainey scored a touchdown on a 9-yard scamper Week 5 at New Orleans, but it was one of only nine touches he had all day. By comparison, Doug Martin had 17 and played nearly twice as many snaps.

In other words, nothing has changed for Rainey in terms of Fantasy value. He remains one of the better handcuff options in the game and has shown enough in a reserve role to give his owners some hope of him overtaking Martin someday, but that day has yet to arrive.

Rainey deserves to be owned in Fantasy, but your bench is the best place for him.

Bobby Rainey scores touchdown in Week 5 loss
by R.J. White |

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey rushed for 21 yards on six carries and scored a touchdown Sunday, adding 21 yards on three catches in his team's 37-31 overtime loss to the Saints in Week 5.

Rainey put the Buccaneers ahead for the first time in the game early in the third quarter, running untouched into the end zone from nine yards out. He was out-touched 17-9 by starter Doug Martin and the two backs were similarly effective. Rainey has managed 220 yards on 47 carries, and Sunday's score was his first rushing touchdown of the year, though he did catch a touchdown in Week 1. The Buccaneers host the Ravens in Week 6.

FFT Blog: Looking at the most-dropped list
by Chris Towers |

At the Fantasy Football Today blog, we took a look at the most-dropped players in leagues.

The five most-dropped players are Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and tight end Niles Paul, Chargers running back Donald Brown, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams and Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey

You probably won't regret dropping Williams or Paul given their injuries, and Cousins' next few matchups will probably bring out more bad habits. However, if Brown is available in your league (as he is in 19 percent of leagues), you might want to snatch him. He has a tough matchup in Week 5, but we think he can run all over the Raiders in Week 6.

Doug Martin doesn't give Bobby Rainey a chance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In his return from a knee injury Week 4 at Pittsburgh, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin led the way with 14 carries. The second-most went to the player who thrived in his absence, Bobby Rainey. He got only four.

That's mostly good news in Fantasy, but for the Rainey owners, perhaps it isn't. Certainly, you'd rather see one of the two backs carry the load rather than another timeshare, but maybe Martin isn't the one to do it. He scored a touchdown, sure, but he gained only 40 yards on those 14 carries, giving him 2.1 yards per carry on the year.

Rainey, by comparison, is averaging 4.9 yards per carry. True, he owes much of that to the 144 yards he had on 22 carries against the Rams in Week 2, but despite the two early fumbles Week 3 at Atlanta, he still finished with 105 total yards in that game, 64 on the receiving end.

Ideally, if you own Martin, you own Rainey and vice versa. Whichever gets the carries looks like he'll get the vast majority of them. But I still have some doubts as to which running back will emerge in the long run.
