Bucs OC Todd Monken said Jacquizz Rodgers will be in "a more expanded role" this week against the Saints.
Rodgers returned from a foot injury last week to run seven times for 29 yards and catch one pass for 21 yards. He was also playing late in the win over the Chargers, ahead of Doug Martin. We doubt Rodgers all of the sudden gets 12-plus touches, but he's worth stashing for the fantasy playoffs in case something happens to Martin. Martin is believed to be healthy right now.

Jacquizz Rodgers rushed seven times for 29 yards and caught his lone target for a gain of 21 in the Bucs' Week 13 win over the Chargers.

Rodgers finished with only the eight touches, but we saw him playing over Martin in some scoring situations and he also closed out the game as the Bucs' primary back on their final three drives. It's unclear why Martin wasn't in during that time period. It's extremely unlikely Martin was outright benched. Either way, Rodgers will be worth stashing on fantasy benches going forward, and especially if it's revealed Martin has some sort of injury.
Dec 4 - 7:52 PM

Bucs RB Jacquizz Rodgers is active for Week 13 against the Chargers.

He should resume backup duties behind workhorse Doug Martin. The Bucs' Week 13 inactives are QB Ryan Griffin, S Chris Conte, OL Josh Allen, C Evan Smith, OL Leonard Wester, DT John Hughes, and DL Davonte Lambert.
Dec 4 - 3:02 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Rodgers actually returned to a full practice on Friday but was still inactive for Sunday's game against Seattle. He should get the green light this week. Upon his return, Rodgers should occupy a change-of-pace role behind workhorse Doug Martin. For fantasy purposes, he's just a handcuff.
Nov 30 - 6:02 PM

Bucs declared Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) inactive for Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Rodgers was able to get in a full practice Friday, but the Bucs were always expected to be "cautious" with his foot injury. He should return next week. Tampa Bay also declared OG Josh Allen, QB Ryan Griffin, DT John Hughes, DL DaVonte Lambert, C Evan Smith, and OT Leonard Wester inactive for Week 12.
Nov 27 - 2:31 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Despite the questionable tag, the Bucs are expected to be "extremely cautious" with Rodgers. He'll likely miss one more week before returning. Even when healthy, Rodgers won't be a threat to Doug Martin's workload.
Nov 25 - 6:31 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) returned to practice Wednesday.

It's the first time Rodgers has practiced in three weeks. The Bucs are expected to be "extremely cautious" with him. Rodgers is targeting a Week 13 return.

Buccaneers declared RB Jacquizz Rodgers, QB Ryan Griffin, DT John Hughes, OL Kevin Pamphile, DT Sealver Siliga, OL Evan Smith and OT Leonard Wester inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Nov 20 - 11:51 AM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) has been ruled out for Week 11.

Rodgers shed his walking boot this week, but didn't practice. He remains out indefinitely.
Nov 18 - 5:15 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) is out of his walking boot.

He still missed practice on Wednesday. Rodgers' fantasy appeal is gone now that Doug Martin is back.
Nov 16 - 1:23 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) has been ruled out for Week 10.

He is sidelined indefinitely with no known timetable for a return.
Nov 11 - 3:47 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) remained sidelined Thursday.

Nov 10 - 4:53 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) shed his walking boot but did not practice Wednesday.

While it's nice he's out of his walking boot, Rodgers is fully expected to miss Week 10 against the Bears. The good news is Doug Martin (hamstring) was back at practice Wednesday and seems to have a shot to play.
Nov 9 - 2:45 PM

ESPN Buccaneers reporter Jenna Laine called Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) a "long shot" to play against the Bears in Week 10.

Rodgers remains in a walking boot and has yet to resume practicing. Doug Martin (hamstring) didn't practice Monday and is also looking doubtful for Week 10. With those two sidelined as well as Antone Smith (knee, I.R.) and Charles Sims (knee, I.R.), Peyton Barber should draw another start Sunday against Chicago. The undrafted rookie went for 55 yards on 15 touches in last week's loss to Atlanta. Think of him as a volume-dependent RB3.
Nov 8 - 12:14 PM

Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) was still in a walking boot Monday.

Rodgers did not practice Monday, and it seems unlikely he will be able to get in any work this week. With Doug Martin (hamstring) also looking doubtful, Peyton Barber looks likely to have a big workload against the Bears.
