Earlier I stumbled upon an article written by Joe Kania on the official Bucs website showing his five bold rookie predictions for this coming season. The one that stood out to me was the prediction that Jeremy McNichols would lead the team in total touches (Running and receiving combined). I’m not sure that I agree with it, but it is possible.
With Doug Martin serving a three-game suspension to start the season, McNichols has the chance to solidify a role in this offense early as his versatility in running the ball mixed with his ability in the passing game could mean an increase in touches right away.
Let’s hear your thoughts on this. Will McNichols lead the team in total touches? If not, which RB do you think will have this most this year?
