Kregg Lumpkin RB NYG Dec 16 '12
Kregg Lumpkin rushed nine times for 42 yards at Atlanta in Week 15.
He wasn't merely relegated to passing-down duties. Lumpkin spelled David Wilson for a series here and there, including one successful stretch with a series of draw plays. He ended up losing a fumble 20+ yards down the field after John Abraham punched it out. That won't win him any favors with coach Tom Coughlin. Lumpkin is unworthy of a fantasy roster spot entering Week 16.

Giants agreed to terms with RB Kregg Lumpkin.
Lumpkin won out over veterans Cadillac Williams, Ryan Grant, and Ryan Torain, who also worked out for the Giants on Tuesday. Lumpkin won't have fantasy value as the third-stringer. He averaged just 3.4 yards on 31 carries with the Bucs last season.

With LeGarrette Blount (knee) fully expected back after the Week 8 bye, Kregg Lumpkin is expected to be the Bucs' third-down back only moving forward.
He's taking the place of Earnest Graham, who was amongst the league leaders in receptions before tearing his Achilles in Week 7. Lumpkin has shown next to nothing as a runner this season, but does have 12 catches in limited playing time. He's worth a look in PPR leagues.

On in relief of an injured Earnest Graham, Kregg Lumpkin carried the ball eight times for 15 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears, adding six catches for 37 yards.
Lumpkin showed nothing as a runner, getting stopped for a loss or no gain on five of his eight carries. With Graham feared done for the season with a torn Achilles' tendon, the Bucs will be in big trouble if LeGarrette Blount (knee) isn't healthy coming off their Week 8 bye. For now, Lumpkin is a must add for any Graham or Blount owner, but don't be surprised if the Bucs hit the open market looking for an upgrade this week.

Coordinator Greg Olsen indicated that RB Kregg Lumkin has had two good weeks of practice and is on the verge of earning more playing time.
We've reached the point with Lumpkin where we'll believe it when we see it. Bucs coaches have been talking him up for two years now, but he has just five receptions for 38 yards and zero rushing attempts.
