NEWS UPDATE

The Buccaneers plan to use Blount and Cadillac Williams in their primary running back rotation, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS

Blount outperformed the veteran on Sunday, rushing 11 times for 72 yards. At the very least, Williams will remain as the team's third-down back as the superior pass blocker and receiver. However, Blount has certainly turned some heads. "He's got tremendous strength and power in his running game. So we were excited in what we saw," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said. "We're excited about his first outing, and we think he'll get better as we go along, so there's no reason not to believe he will be a guy who will continue to carry the ball for us."
