Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White is active for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Week 12 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. White didn’t appear on the injury report all week until Saturday with a knee injury. He was a full participant at practice in every day, so it was a bit surprising to see him pop up on the report.

White has 141 carries for 459 yards and four touchdowns on the season. He hasn’tmade a ton of plays in the run game as the most yards that he’s rushed for is 73. However, he has been one of the best receiving backs in the NFL this season. On the season, he has 41 receptions for 354 yards and a touchdown.

White should start in your fantasy lineups today. He faces a Colts team that is allowing 21.2 fantasy points to running backs per game which is the 5th most in the NFL. They’re also allowing 40.3 receiving yards per game to running backs. This feels like a game where we see White catch a number of passes for 40+ yards.
