Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey questionable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 13:33:02 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is questionable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a FantasyScore price of $3,100 for Rainey this week, he should be avoided in FantasyScore contests as Doug Martin will likely get most of the work this week.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey limited Thursday

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 15:52:19 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) returned to practice in limited fashion Thursday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey and Charles Sims have been nonfactors in recent weeks with Doug Martin returning as starter. Martin ($4,400) deserves a look on FantasyScore this week with a nice matchup against the Carolina Panthers, who have given up the third most receptions to running backs this year.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey misses practice

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:43:23 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey ($3,000) has really seen his role been reduced with the return of Doug Martin. Even with a nice matchup against the Carolina Panthers this weekend, you should look to avoid Rainey at FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey inactive Sunday

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 08:42:38 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) is inactive Sunday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Doug Martin ($4,400; 8.8% of your cap) had a solid week last week, but he has a tough draw against the Detroit Lions. He's a flex option on FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey questionable

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:24:20 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) did not practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 5, and is questionable for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey was in a walking boot earlier this week and seems unlikely to play against the Lions. That's good news for Charles Sims ($3,100) and Doug Martin ($4,400) in Week 14. The Lions don't yield much on the ground, though, making both Sims and Martin weak FantasyScore plays.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey out of boot

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 11:09:08 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) is out of a walking boot, but he is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey should not be considered in FantasyScore this week as he continues to get healthy. Doug Martin ($4,400) and Charles Sims ($3,100) are not great Week 14 options either.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey in walking boot

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 13:24:36 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 3, and he was seen in a boot for his injured right foot. Rainey handled punt and kickoff return duties in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey had just one carry last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. You can ignore him at FantasyScore against a very strong Detroit Lions run D. Doug Martin ($4,400) and Charles Sims ($3,100) aren't strong options for daily lineups, either.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims emerges as lead back

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 07:17:33 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims emerged with a team-high 13 carries and 36 yards rushing in Week 11. RB Bobby Rainey started the game, but Sims took over the bulk of the work after the first series. Sims caught three passes and ran in short-yardage situations as well.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Sims to be the guy for the remaining six games as the team looks toward the future. He could be a cheap flex option the rest of the way, and Rainey's run of FantasyScore relevance is likely over for now.
