|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.
| Charles Sims due back Week 14|
Set to come off IR

FFToday's Take: Sims' return is good news for an offense that once was down to Peyton Barber, but it is unclear if Jacquizz Rodgers has taken his pass-catching role from him or not. Rodgers has been the Bucs' most efficient runner this season by a wide margin, so owners shouldn't assume Sims is going to come back and tear it up in the same way he did late last season. Sims is worth an add in all leagues, but his role needs to be defined before he should be started in fantasy.
| 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, 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.
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.

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.
