Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rodgers Among PFF's Top 10 Players

RB Jacquizz Rodgers was one of the NFL's top players in Week 7, according to Pro Football Focus.

Running back Jacquizz Rodgers had a career day against the 49ers in Week 7, rushing for 154 yards. Rodgers hadn't rushed for 100 yards or more in a game since debuting as a rookie in 2011, but has rattled off back-to-back 100-yard games in his last two with the Buccaneers.

Rodgers' performance was strong, Pro Football Focus graded him as one of the ten-best players in the entire league, regardless of position. Rodgers came in at No. 9 on the list.

"The 49ers defenders actually held up OK in the run game against the Bucs blockers, but Tampa Bay ran riot in their win over the 49ers thanks largely to Rodgers," PFF's Sam Monson wrote. "He ended the game with 154 rushing yards on 26 carries, racking up 106 of them (68.8 percent) after contact, breaking four tackles in the process. Rodgers ran hard all game long and gave the Bucs a great platform to work from."

Rodgers is averaging 4.7 yards per carry as he continues to fill in for an injured Doug Martin. As it stands, Rodgers' 154 rushing yards are the third-most of any running back in Week 7, though the Broncos and Texans have yet to play this week.

Just one other running back appeared on PFF's list – Miami's Jay Ajayi, who picked up 214 yards and is currently the league-leader for Week 7.
