2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
With plans on running the ball heavily in 2014, Tampa Bay made a concerted effort to add depth to the backfield and was able to land Charles Sims in the third round. Tampa Bay's new offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford recruited Sims as a college transfer and he is definitely a fan. Tedford's track record of helping smaller, explosive runners find success should aid in Sims' ability to be fantasy relevant as early as this year. His fantasy value hinges on opportunity, however, and until we see more from this offensive unit it will be hard to nail down Sims' exact worth in redraft leagues. If things go well in his first pro season, he could have a Giovanni Bernard type of impact as primarily a third-down option with a few series mixed in throughout the course of the game. Concerns over his durability make projecting much more unwise.

Injury Bucs RB Chalres Sims to have ankle surgery
Expected to miss 12-14 weeks
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 15, 3:14 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rookie Charles Sims, a third-round draft pick, is expected to miss 12-14 weeks because of a right ankle injury that occurred Tuesday and requires surgery, the team announced. The Bucs have not said what the injury is, but that Sims will have surgery on Saturday. Sims walked around in a protective boot on Thursday. (Tampa Tribune)

FFToday's Take: The rookie has been battling with Bobby Rainey and Mike James during camp in hopes of being part of a rotation at running back with starter Doug Martin. Rainey is the favorite to win the No. 2 job but Martin is the only runner to own in this backfield.

FFToday's Take: Sims was helped to the trainers room but the injury doesn't appear to be serious at this time. The rookies is competing for playing time with Bobby Rainey behind starter Doug Martin.
