Ke'Shawn Vaughn
23-Year-Old Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round pick out of Vanderbilt, Vaughn has the tools to be an effective early down option for the Buccaneers if he gets the chance. Solidly built at 5-9, 214, Vaughn runs with power and surprising speed in the open field thanks to his background as a sprinter in high school, and he has the balance to survive initial contact. He lacks elusiveness, however, and while he's a willing blocker, his receiving skills need some work - limitations that could keep him on the sideline for passing downs and give him fewer chances to make use of his 4.51 speed. Paired with Ronald Jones in the Tampa Bay backfield, Vaughn could thrive if defenses are forced to back off and respect the new Tom Brady-led passing attack, but Jones has the advantage of being in his second year under coach Bruce Arians. There's also the matter of a backfield committee potentially including a third player, with seventh-round rookie Raymond Calais competing for a role on passing downs, while LeSean McCoy was brought in right before the start of training camp. Making the situation even murkier for Vaughn's outlook was the addition of Leonard Fournette on Sept. 3, a development that threatens Vaughn's potential touch share even further and arguably places him fourth in the early-down-back pecking order behind Jones, McCoy and Fournette to open the 2020 season.

Efficient in limited action
RBTampa Bay Buccaneers
October 18, 2020
Vaugh rushed five times for 42 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Packers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
With the contest well in hand by the latter part of the fourth quarter, coach Bruce Arians went heavy on reserves and gave Vaughn some run to finish off the rout. The rookie impressed with a 19-yard scamper and was efficient by gaining 23 yards on his four other carries as well. Vaughn's usage is sporadic, as he logged the first three carries of his career two games ago, failed to log any rush attempts but saw three targets in Week 5, and then bounced back with his highest number of rushing touches yet Sunday. The encouraging performance in the waning minutes against the Packers aside, fantasy managers should be mindful that a Leonard Fournette (ankle) return in a Week 7 road battle versus the Raiders would likely send Vaughn back to a minuscule role.
