Buccaneers | Charles Sims could start for TB

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:31:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims has a solid chance of beating out RB Doug Martin for Tampa Bay's starting running back gig, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has mostly been a disappointment since his outstanding rookie season. Sims hasn't been given a lot of opportunities to show what he's capable of as he only played in eight games of his rookie season last year. It could end up being more of a running back by committee (Bobby Rainey and Mike James are also available), but Martin needs to step up his game if he doesn't want Sims to supplant him.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims excited for new season

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:25:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is anxious to capitalize on his short-lived 2014 campaign when he suffered a torn ankle tendon that caused him to miss the first eight games of the season. "I was just getting in the groove and then the season was over," Sims said. "I'm looking forward to next year and it will be interesting to see what's going to happen."

Fantasy Tip: Sims is expected to play a big role for the Bucs in 2015, but he'll still have Doug Martin, Bobby Rainey and Mike James to compete with for playing time. If it wasn't such a crowded backfield, Sims could be a valuable asset to fantasy squads, and that could still end up being the case. For now, however, he's in RB3 territory.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims will be featured

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:17:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is viewed very highly by his coaches, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com. Sims is expected to be the featured back in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Sims is likely to feature very prominently in the passing game. Sims averaged 10.0 yards per reception on 19 catches last season, showing promise in an area of the game in which Doug Martin struggles mightily. Sims should be available in the late rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts, and he has the ability to wind up as an RB2.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims likely to be featured

Mon, 04 May 2015 07:47:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is likely to be featured in the offense this season.

Fantasy Tip: Pewter Report speculates the team will trade Doug Martin before the season, which means Sims will have to compete with Bobby Rainey for touches. Sims would be a solid RB2 if he's indeed the featured back. Martin's fantasy luster plummets with these intentions known, but his value will be solid if he can at least share the load somewhere else.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims a full participant

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 16:51:49 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) practiced fully Friday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Sims should be able to go this weekend but will be splitting time with Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey. He is cheaply priced at $4,100 on FantasyScore but there are too many mouths to feed in that backfield.

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 15:17:01 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims limited

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:28:19 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Sims shared carries with Doug Martin in Week 12, so it is not known how many carries he will receive if he is able to play this week. Sims only costs $4,100 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option but will be facing a tough Cincinnati Bengals rush defense.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin, Charles Sims limited

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:48:42 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Doug Martin (ankle) and Charles Sims (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,000) may return in Week 12 to face the Chicago Bears, but he hasn't done much all season. Sims ($4,700), on the other hand, has effectively replaced Bobby Rainey as the lead back. The Bears are allowing just over 16 fantasy points per game to rushers this year. Consider Sims more of a flex play this week at FantasyScore, and his value will suffer if Martin returns.

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.
