Bobby Rainey rushes for 163 yards and scores three TDs
Counting his brief tenure with the Browns this year (and Ravens last year), Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey had 21 career NFL carries entering Week 11.
Expected to share the workload with teammate Brian Leonard, James had four times as many touches as Leonard.
Rainey currently leads all running backs in carries (30) and rushing yards (163) in Week 11. In addition, he has scored a total of three touchdowns (two rushing and one receiving). Leonard had only four carries for 16 yards and four receptions for 21 yards.
As you'd probably expect, no player at any position has more fantasy points than Rainey (34) in standard-scoring formats so far this week.
Owned in only 24 percent of Yahoo! leagues, Rainey will be the most-added player off waivers this week, but he will have a much tougher matchup next week.
Since allowing five rushing touchdowns in the team's first four games, the Lions, next week's opponent, have not allowed a rushing touchdown in six games. The Lions held Le'Veon Bell to 36 rushing yards on 18 carries today.
