2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Tampa Bay was finally able to deploy Charles Sims on a regular basis after taking him in the third round two years ago. The results were impressive as he was able to post over 1000 combined yards from scrimmage with a handful of touchdowns. Once a unique type of player that was tougher to evaluate, guys like Sims are becoming more and more popular options for fantasy managers due to their mid-round price tags and upside potential in a landscape that saw only five running backs eclipse 250 carries in 2015. His role in the offense isnít limited to true backup duty but rather a versatile weapon to be deployed as needed. He should continue to develop into a Darren Sproles-esque talent for fantasy owners to exploit as a RB3/flex option regardless of whether Doug Martin is healthy. If others in your league want to cast him off due to Martinís new deal be ready to pounce on him in the middle rounds where he is almost assuredly going to return a profit in 2016.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bucs welcome pair of RBs back to practice
Bucs must decide on Charles Sims within next 21 days
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 23, 7:23 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
TAMPA, Fla. -- Buccaneers running backs Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers returned to practice Wednesday. Sims has been on injured reserve since suffering a knee injury in Week 4, but he has been designated as the team's player to return from IR. The Buccaneers have 21 days to decide whether to activate Sims and add him to the 53-man roster. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: Doug Martin has 40 carries in the two games he has played since returning from his own injury and is locked in at the top of the depth chart. He should continue to be a RB2 even after reinforcements arrive but fantasy owners should be weary of the potential for a RBBC to develop in the coming weeks. Jacquizz Rodgers is nearing a return and could step into a complementary role similar to Sims' earlier this season but his status for Week 12 remains up in the air. A return by Charles Sims in the next three weeks would only add another useful option for Tampa to mix into the offense so stay tuned as this situation evolves.


Injury Jacquizz Rodgers still in walking boot

No word on Bucs RB Jacquizz Rodgers' foot injury, but he's still wearing a walking boot in locker room today, eight days after his injury. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bucs have cycled through a number of running backs this season with Doug Martinm, Charles Sims and Rodgers all suffering significant injuries. It could be the Peyton Barber show in Week 10 against the Bears. If so, he'll be on the RB2 radar.


Injury Charles Sims placed on IR
Knee injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 10, 5:20 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs announced they have placed RB Charles Sims on injured reserve with a knee injury. The team promoted rookie tailback Russell Hansbrough from the practice squad. Doug Martin has missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury and was listed as doubtful to return this week. Sims suffered a knee injury in last week's loss to the Denver Broncos. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: This one is a bit of a shocker, as there was absolutely no panic that Sims could be facing a serious enough injury to miss at least the next eight weeks. Jacquizz Rodgers, who will draw the start in Martin and Sims' stead tonight against the Panthers, should immediately slide into Sims' role as a complementary back when Martin returns. Rodgers is a steep downgrade from Sims, but at least he should be utilized in a "space role" that suits his game.


Injury Charles Sims misses practice Friday
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 7, 5:00 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
At running back, the situation is no better, with starter Doug Martin expected to miss a third straight game with a hamstring injury, and his replacement, Charles Sims, held out of practice again Friday with a knee injury. That leaves Jacquizz Rodgers -- signed off the street in Week 2 as a free agent -- and rookie Peyton Barber, who hasn't taken an offensive snap in the first four games. (Tampa Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It's looking more and more like Rodgers will get the start Monday night against the Panthers although Sims has yet be ruled out. Rodgers would have a RB2 ceiling as the Bucs project to be playing from behind.


Injury Bucs hint at reduced workload for Charles Sims
More touches for Jacquizz Rodgers not really an inspiring theme
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 4, 11:03 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After Charles Sims gained just 28 yards on 15 carries in the Bucs loss to Denver Sunday, coach Dirk Koetter said all options remain on the table going forward in regards to the running back position. (Pewter Report)

FFToday's Take: Yuck. Simsís issues hitting the hole has made the Bucs offense one-dimensional, and Koetter will look to adjust some things - including personnel - while waiting for Doug Martin to get back on the field. In the meantime, the Bucs could look to former Falcon Jacquizz Rodgers, signed after Week 1, to handle more of the inside-running work. Rodgers rushed for 20 yards on five carries in the first half Sunday, but was curiously shutdown by the Bucs in the second half. Rodgers isn't a special player and there's just not a ton of value in Tampa's struggling offense right now.


Injury Doug Martin expected to sit through Week 6 bye
Beat writer admits there is "some window" for Week 5 return
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 3, 5:15 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
No word on Doug Martin. Has not practiced in last two weeks. Some window to return for Carolina, but after bye seems more likely. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The key phrase above would be "not practiced in two weeks". With a bye coming up next week after a visit to the Carolina on Monday night, it makes little sense to rush Martin back, especially considering the Panthers could be without Cam Newton. Expect Charles Sims to serve as the featured back one more week.


Injury Doug Martin out three weeks
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 21, 8:00 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs will be without Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin for about three weeks as he recovers from his hamstring injury, the NFL Network reported Wednesday. (Tampa Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Martin was injured early in the second quarter last Sunday. Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers will handle the rushing duties while Martin recovers with Sims being the lead back. Expect Martin to return in Week 7 after the Bucs bye in Week 6.


Bucs waive RB Mike James, sign WR Cecil Shorts
Backend depth chart moves
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 7, 12:30 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Agent for Jacquizz Rodgers says no news yet on a signing from Bucs, who worked him out Tuesday and waived Mike James with an injury today. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Back-end of the depth chart moves here. James was the third tailback behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims. Expect the Bucs to add a running back in the next few days, perhaps Rodgers or someone from the practice squad. Shorts signed a one-year deal and could compete with Adam Humphries for the No. 3 receiver job.
