Rachaad White

After a slow start to the year, it feels like we're witnessing the breakout of Rachaad White.

Better late than never, and the wait was certainly worth it.

He has now scored in back-to-back weeks after not having reached the end zone since Week 2 against the Bears. White has also racked up 124 yards over the last two weeks for an average of about 3.1 yards per carry. That's all encouraging, especially with how bad the run game has been, but it's his contributions in the passing game that have shown his true value.

White has gone for almost 100 yards receiving over the last two games, which comes off games in which he totaled 70 yards and 65 yards through the air. He's starting to show flashes of being an Alvin Kamara-type weapon for the Bucs, and it's becoming more and more apparent that he's best used in the passing game right now.

Just imagine how great White would be if the Bucs could provide some run blocking.

Even with how bad the run game has been, White's starting to show signs of life there as well. He's an all-purpose yards machine who is only just beginning to settle in, and Sunday was yet another example of how important he can be in the offense.
