Description: Buccaneers RB Kareem Huggins is out for the rest of the year after tearing his ACL during the game against the Saints. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Cadillac Williams keeps catching a break. Huggins, one of our 2010 sleeper picks, was never able to maintain his health long enough to carve himself out a role like we thought he would. He is safe to drop in all redraft leagues.

Description: According to Buccaneers HC Raheem Morris, RB Kareem Huggins didn't get any playing time Sunday because of pass protection. SOURCE: ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Insight: Huggins isn't that great of a blocker, but we were surprised he got zero carries after a solid preseason. We wouldn't drop him yet, but he is going to have to produce results over the next two weeks.

Description: According to Buccaneers OC Greg Olson, RB Kareem Huggins will have a bigger role in Week Two. SOURCE: ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Insight: Huggins played primarily on special teams, with Earnest Graham backing up Cadillac Williams against the Browns. Olson said the team doesn't want to give Caddy "that kind of workload every week and expect him to get through the season." Huggins doesn't have much fantasy value at the moment.

Description: The Buccaneers may not be comfortable with RB Kareem Huggins' inexperience, which is why they signed both RB Kregg Lumpkin and RB LeGarrette Blount. SOURCE: ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Insight: The team still needed depth behind Huggins and Cadillac Williams if Caddy goes down this year, but Lumpkin and Blount aren't major upgrades over Huggins right now. We still like Huggins' chances at carving out a decent-sized role in 2010, but he is still nothing more than a late-round flier.

Description: Buccaneers RB Kareem Huggins finished with 37 yards on six carries after starting in the team's final preseason game. SOURCE: ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Insight: Huggins is someone to own in all leagues, especially for those who own Cadillac Williams. He will push Caddy for playing time right at the start of the regular season.

Description: Buccaneers RB Kareem Huggins is expected to work with the first-string offense for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. SOURCE: ST. PETERSBURG TIMES
Insight: Huggins looked explosive last weekend after carrying the rock eight times for 55 yards against the Dolphins. If he looks good again this weekend, he could make a serious case for a bigger role this year.

Description: Buccaneers OC Greg Olson said RB Kareem Huggins is a "guy that has jumped out during (voluntary workouts), training camp and minicamp ... Keep an eye on him." SOURCE: TAMPA TRIBUNE
Insight: Huggins is small (5'9/198 size), but plays big for his size. Plus, he has 4.3 speed. He was activated from the practice squad last year after returner Clifton Smith (concussion) was lost for the season. Huggins will likely have to beat out Smith to nab a roster spot.
