Sean Tucker

21-Year-Old Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Tucker makes for a high-pedigree undrafted free agent, as he racked up 2,556 rushing yards, 509 receiving yards and 27 total touchdowns over his last two seasons at Syracuse. The compactly built rookie (5-9, 207) should have his fair share of reps during training camp and preseason games, but he'll have no shortage of competition for a depth running back role considering the presence of holdovers Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Patrick Laird, as well as fellow UDFA Ronnie Brown.

RANKS
#216.14
ADP
$Signed a three-year, $2.7 million contract with the Buccaneers in May of 2023.
Minimal action in loss
RBTampa Bay Buccaneers
September 26, 2023
Tucker rushed twice for one yard and wasn't targeted in the passing game during the Buccaneers' 25-11 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.
ANALYSIS
Tucker saw only four snaps in a game where the script progressively turned away from the ground attack. The rookie running back is likely to continue in a minor role during any game where Rachaad White is available and Tampa Bay is trailing in the second half, although Chase Edmonds' (knee) absence for at least three more games could open up more snaps for Tucker in scenarios where the Buccaneers have a lead or are managing a modest deficit.
