Stop the presses, the Buccaneers look like a decent football team. Do they even want that first pick of the draft. Early on Sunday, the Buccaneers thumped the Atlanta Falcons and they rode the coattails of RB Bobby Rainey in the game. Rainey ran for 163 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also caught a couple of passes and scored another touchdown in the passing game. Rainey got the opportunity to play in the game after Mike James hurt his ankle last week. He got the start and exploded in the running game.
Rainey might have been available in your fantasy football leagues, but everyone will be looking to pick him up after his performance against the poor Atlanta Falcons defense. He won’t put up huge numbers like that all the time because the won’t be facing off against the Falcons all the time, but he still will be an option that you want to have on your bench. Pick him up if you can grab him.
