Kregg Lumpkin rushed nine times for 42 yards at Atlanta in Week 15.

He wasn't merely relegated to passing-down duties. Lumpkin spelled David Wilson for a series here and there, including one successful stretch with a series of draw plays. He ended up losing a fumble 20+ yards down the field after John Abraham punched it out. That won't win him any favors with coach Tom Coughlin. Lumpkin is unworthy of a fantasy roster spot entering Week 16.

Giants agreed to terms with RB Kregg Lumpkin.

Lumpkin won out over veterans Cadillac Williams, Ryan Grant, and Ryan Torain, who also worked out for the Giants on Tuesday. Lumpkin won't have fantasy value as the third-stringer. He averaged just 3.4 yards on 31 carries with the Bucs last season.

Seahawks released RB Kregg Lumpkin.

Lumpkin surprisingly survived final cuts, but is no longer needed now that Marshawn Lynch's back spasms are in the past. Lumpkin has averaged 3.8 yards on 33 career carries over five seasons.

Seahawks agreed to terms with RB Kregg Lumpkin, formerly of the Bucs.

Lumpkin is a serviceable pass protector and plays on special teams, but he offers next to no explosiveness as a runner. He'll compete for a roster spot.

The Seahawks will host RB Kregg Lumpkin for a free agent visit on Thursday.

The meeting will extend into Friday. Lumpkin was not tendered as a restricted free agent by the Bucs. He'd have to battle for a roster spot in Seattle.

Kregg Lumpkin rushed two times for zero yards and added five catches for 27 yards in the Week 17 loss to the Falcons.

After Earnest Graham (Achilles) went down in Week 7, Lumpkin took over as the featured passing-down back. That allowed him to rack up a career-high 41 catches for 291 yards. Lumpkin status with the Bucs going forward is unknown as a regime change is likely. He'll be a restricted free agent.

With LeGarrette Blount (knee) fully expected back after the Week 8 bye, Kregg Lumpkin is expected to be the Bucs' third-down back only moving forward.

He's taking the place of Earnest Graham, who was amongst the league leaders in receptions before tearing his Achilles in Week 7. Lumpkin has shown next to nothing as a runner this season, but does have 12 catches in limited playing time. He's worth a look in deep PPR leagues if you're desperate.

The St. Petersburg Times expects the Bucs to address the running back position during their bye week.

With Earnest Graham (Achilles) done for the year and LeGarrette Blount (knee) uncertain, the Bucs are in desperation mode. They are unlikely to head into Week 9 with Kregg Lumpkin as their featured back. Mossis Madu and Chad Spann are both on the practice squad, but the Bucs figure to look for outside help as well. Lumpkin projects as more of the third-down back going forward.

On in relief of an injured Earnest Graham, Kregg Lumpkin carried the ball eight times for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears, adding six catches for 37 yards.

Lumpkin showed nothing as a runner, getting stopped for a loss or no gain on five of his eight carries. With Graham feared done for the season with a torn Achilles' tendon, the Bucs will be in big trouble if LeGarrette Blount (knee) isn't healthy coming off their Week 8 bye. For now, Lumpkin is a must add for any Graham or Blount owner, but don't be surprised if the Bucs hit the open market looking for an upgrade this week.

Coordinator Greg Olson indicated that RB Kregg Lumpkin has had two good weeks of practice and is on the verge of earning more playing time.

Bucs coaches have been talking him up for two years now, but he has just five receptions for 38 yards and zero rushing attempts. He did have a season-high three catches against the Colts Monday night. There's a chance he could begin siphoning snaps from Earnest Graham on third downs.

Kregg Lumpkin carried the ball six times for 24 yards and hauled in two catches for 10 yards in the Bucs' preseason opener on Friday.

All but one of Lumpkin's touches came in the first half. The St. Petersburg Times believes Lumpkin's performance gives the Bucs reason to believe he could be "their solution as a third-down and change-of-pace back" behind LeGarrette Blount. He'll be given ample opportunity to prove himself this preseason after Tampa let Cadillac Williams leave for St. Louis.

Bucs RB Kregg Lumpkin is reportedly "well liked by the coaching and front office staffs" in Tampa.

He must be loved like the family dog. Lumpkin was limited to special teams duty last season, seeing just one rushing attempt. That speaks volumes considering Cadillac Williams' flirtation with 3.0 yards per carry early in the season when the coaches also deemed LeGarrette Blount not ready for primetime. Lumpkin won't be guaranteed a roster spot this summer.

Kregg Lumpkin has been getting a lot of reps at fullback during this week's practice.

It's definitely a sign that Lumpkin isn't in the mix to take carries from Cadillac Williams. It could also be an indication that Earnest Graham will be freed up from the lead-blocking role on occasion to take on more tailback touches.

Bucs declared RB Kregg Lumpkin, FB Chris Pressley, C Ted Larsen, WR Maurice Stovall, WR Preston Parker, DT Ryan Sims, CB Myron Lewis and third QB Rudy Carpenter inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

No surprises here. The Bucs have all four of their candidates for carries active in Caddy Williams, Earnest Graham, Kareem Huggins and LeGarrette Blount.
