26-Year-Old Running BackRB
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2020 Fantasy Outlook
After not logging a regular-season touch over his first two professional campaigns, Ogunbowale carved out a consistent role as the Buccaneers' third-down back in 2019. The Wisconsin product had a 35-286-0 line through the air on 46 targets, and while he turned 11 carries into just 17 yards, he also notched the first two rushing touchdowns of his career. New Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has an extensive track record of success with pass-catching backs, but that doesn't necessarily give Ogunbowale a leg up on a roster spot in and of itself. With rookie third-round pick Ke'Shawn Vaughn showing promise as a receiver out of the backfield late in his college career and team brass already talking him up as a possible three-down option, Ogunbowale projects to have a battle on his hands to make the 53-man roster.

Gets work in with Brady

May 21, 2020
Ogunbowale was one of several Buccaneers skill players to participate in a workout with Tom Brady at Berkeley Preparatory School on Tuesday, Rick Stroud and Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times report.
ANALYSIS
The Wisconsin product managed to carve out a steady third-down role in what was his second Buccaneers campaign in 2019, leading to a career-best 35 receptions and 286 receiving yards, as well as a pair of rushing touchdowns. With Brady's extensive history of success with pass-catching backs, it certainly behooves Ogunbowale to get as much on-field time with his new quarterback, especially during an offseason where traditional OTAs aren't an option. Additionally, Ogunbowale projects to face fierce competition for playing time -- and by extension, his roster spot -- from rookies Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Raymond Calais this summer, so it's unsurprising to see him taking the initiative of participating in any workout organized by the future Hall of Fame signal-caller.
