Buccaneers' Dare Ogunbowale expected to be third-down back

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Dare Ogunbowale will likely open the season as the team's third-down back, writes Jenna Laine of ESPN.com.

What It Means:

Ogunbowale led the Buccaneers backfield with 46 targets last season and was rarely used as a runner. He produced 286 scoreless yards on 6.2 yards per target, ranking 18th out of 43 backs with at least 30 targets last season. However, Ronald Jones saw 40 targets of his own and third-round rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn can contribute in the passing game, so Ogunbowale may need to step it up to retain a role on offense. The former undrafted free agent turned 26 in May.

numberFire's models expect Ogunbowale to catch 17.6 passes on 24.9 targets for 111.9 yards and add another 57.8 rushing yards while totaling 1.4 touchdowns.
