The story said on Sunday against the Raiders, Fournette participated in 40 snaps, a 56-percent rate. Fournette rushed for 50 yards on 11 carries, and he added 47 receiving yards on six catches. McCoy, in contrast, was the only non-quarterback on either team who didn’t play at all. And, McCoy was the only running back on any team who dressed but didn’t play in any of the 13 Week 7 games played so far, the story pointed out. It's possible the Bucs look to trade McCoy. Vaughn is a similar back and could also serve as the nickel back.
Those who follow the team say Fournette is fully recovered from his ankle injury and perhaps that's starting to show in the workload. Fournette really made is mark in the passing game catching six of his seven targets. Fournette could be a PPR option thanks to that kind of usage in the passing game.

Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Fournette will return this week. Bruce Arians said of Fournette, “He’s good to go. He’s practiced full and he’ll reassume his role." Expect him to serve as Ronald Jones' change-of-pace backup.
