Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White has been close to an RB1 for fantasy football in recent weeks with a steady volume of rushing attempts and being a factor in the passing game. He has had double digit carries in three of the last five games and had at least nine every game.

For the season, White has 141 rushing attempts, 459 rushing yards with 41 receptions, 354 receiving yards and five total touchdowns. A majority of those touchdowns, four to be exact, have been in the past three games.

Entering Week 12, White was a surprise addition to the Bucs' injury report as he was listed as questionable on Saturday. When a player is added this late in the week, it is concerning but that doesn't seem to be the case here as White is active for today's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Rachaad White is a Top 24 running back in fantasy football for Week 12

The Bucs once again should lean on Rachaad White this week against the Colts and double digit touches are very likely, even with the injury designation. The Colts have struggled against the run this season and are allowing the fifth most fantasy football points to running backs.

The reason the Colts have allowed so many points is they have given up the third most rushing touchdowns at 11 but have been better recently in this area with only one rushing touchdown allowed over the past four weeks.

As mentioned previously, Rachaad White has done a great job getting into the end zone recently. He is entering this game with a three game streak of at least one touchdown and has a good chance to continue that today, even with the improvements made by the Colts defense recently.

Rachaad White is a borderline RB1/RB2 in this matchup and should be started in most fantasy football leagues.
