Rodgers returned two kickoffs for 31 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-29 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. Rodgers did not see any work from scrimmage for the second consecutive game, a trend that's coincided with the active status of rookie Ronald Jones II. The versatile veteran will likely be relegated to special teams work moving forward unless there are injuries in front of him.
Rodgers returned one kickoff for 21 yards and did not log any touches from scrimmage during the Buccaneers' 48-10 loss to the Bears on Sunday. The veteran running back did play on 13 offensive snaps, but with second-round pick Ronald Jones II active, he didn't see any carries. Sunday's backfield depth chart could be the norm moving forward, meaning that Rodgers should continue retaining active status at the expense of rookie Shaun Wilson and serving as the primary kick returner.
Rodgers lost a yard on two rushes and brought in two of three targets for 18 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-27 loss to the Steelers on Monday night. It was a typical game with limited touches for Rodgers, who continues to suit up on gameday while 2018 second-round pick Ronald Jones II retains inactive status. The veteran back did see a solid 26 snaps from scrimmage due to the Buccaneers trailing in the contest throughout the second half, but he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration given his minor role in the big picture of Tampa's well-stocked offense.
Rodgers rushed five times for 13 yards and brought in all three of his targets for 23 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-21 win over the Eagles on Sunday. Although the passing game once again took center stage, Rodgers actually saw a slight boost in rushing attempts while also turning in an effective performance as an outlet receiver out of the backfield. Second-round pick Ronald Jones II was inactive for a second straight game to open his career Sunday, but Rodgers could retain active status on gameday even when Jones begins to suit up.
Rodgers carried twice for one yard and hauled in his only target for two yards in the Buccaneers' 48-40 win over the Saints on Sunday. Although he was technically listed as the No. 2 running back behind Peyton Barber, Rodgers saw a scant workload over his 15 snaps. Game flow may have played a large part in Rodgers' minimal usage, as the passing game took center stage in the high-scoring affair. While Rodgers figures to see a bump in opportunity in subsequent games, that could certainly be affected by the status of second-round pick Ronald Jones II, who was inactive to open his pro career Sunday.
