Buccaneers | Doug Martin should play in Week 3

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:41:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) has a good chance to play in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football. The team held him out of the Week 2 game to ensure that he would be ready for Week 3 at Atlanta. RB Bobby Rainey, who had 22 carries for 144 yards in Week 2, could be heavily involved as well.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned this week for further details on how much of a timeshare we can expect moving forward.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin iffy to play

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:35:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play Sunday, Sept. 14, in the opinion of beat writer Tom Krasniqi. RB Bobby Rainey is expected to see more action in Week 2, regardless of Martin's status.

Fantasy Tip: Martin might be too risky to play ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap on FantasyScore) at this point. Rainey is a solid bargain buy ($3,700; 7.4%) as a flex option for Week 2.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin fine physically

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 14:38:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin's (leg) leg injury in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers wasn't the reason why he wasn't on the field during crunch time late in the game, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "Bobby Rainey had come and had given us a little bit of life, and as I've mentioned we want to play more than one running back throughout. So it was just a perfect time to keep both of them involved," Smith said. Martin is physically fine, despite having nine carries for just nine yards in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey is worth considering for a waiver wire addition in standard leagues, as he may see more work moving forward, especially if Martin is ineffective. Martin's FantasyScore salary against the St. Louis Rams in Week 2 is affordable ($4,700; 9.4% of cap), but you have to wonder if he presents you with the best bang for your buck in what could become more of a committee approach.

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 13:15:15 -0700

Buccaneers | Mike James running with twos

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 14:36:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James is working with the second-team offense Saturday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: It's still early, and Bobby Rainey could still figure into the mix at the No. 2 RB. Whichever player wins that role will likely have RB4 or RB5 value.

Buccaneers | Want to use rotation at RB

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 13:15:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Bobby Rainey, Mike James, Charles Sims and Jeff Demps will be vying for carries behind RB Doug Martin in training camp. Martin is the team's starting running back, but the team wants to use a rotation in the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Martin clearly is the starter and should be drafted as an RB1. However, they'll look to spell him when they can. Stay tuned for who stands out as his primary backup during training camp and the preseason.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims' likely role

Fri, 30 May 2014 06:22:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is the most likely among the backups to have a weekly role behind starter Doug Martin, in the opinion of Scott Smith, because of Sims' ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. Martin will probably cede a few carries and third-down work to Sims.

Fantasy Tip: Mike James and Bobby Rainey profile more closely to handcuff status because of the underrated power in their games. One of them may be a cut candidate. Sims is a decent late-rounds PPR gamble but is unlikely to be considered top dog if Martin were to struggle or suffer an injury. As for Martin's fantasy value, he should still get the lion's share on his way to low-end RB1 numbers; he has plenty of rebound potential.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey breaks out

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 05:52:41 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey had 30 carries for 163 yards and two touchdowns and had a receiving touchdown in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Rainey torched the Atlanta Falcons' porous defense. It remains to be seen if he can continue to be a viable fantasy contributor on a weekly basis, but he needs to be owned in nearly all leagues.

Buccaneers | Mike James' season over

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 12:35:09 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said RB Mike James (ankle) will miss the rest of the year with a broken left ankle.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a huge surprised after it was announced last night that he had fractured his ankle. Brian Leonard and Bobby Rainey will combine to split the backfield duties. Both are worth a waiver wire claim as RB depth for your roster.

Buccaneers | Brian Leonard to be primary back

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 09:59:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Brian Leonard will take over as the primary running back after RB Mike James (ankle) fractured his ankle in Week 10. RB Bobby Rainey will back up Leonard.

Fantasy Tip: Leonard should be owned if you are in dire need at the RB position, but mainly just for the increase in workload he'll receive. Don't expect RB2 production all of a sudden, especially since the Bucs will likely mix in Rainey often.

Browns | Willis McGahee to sign

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 15:27:51 -0700

The Cleveland Browns will sign free-agent RB Willis McGahee (Broncos) to an undisclosed deal if he passes a physical.

Fantasy Tip: McGahee obviously is no Trent Richardson, but assuming he's healthy, he should have some fantasy value, albeit very limited. With T-Rich gone, McGahee should become the main back, possibly alongside Chris Ogbonnaya or Bobby Rainey.

Ravens | Could add RB to the roster

Wed, 08 Aug 2012 08:01:21 -0700

Baltimore Ravens RBs Anthony Allen, Bernard Pierce and Damien Berry have not made nearly as much noise in training camp as RB Bobby Rainey, an undrafted free agent from Western Kentucky. However, Rainey is a clone of RB Ray Rice and the team might need a change-of-pace runner. As a result, the Ravens could add a free agent near the end of camp.

Ravens | Battle for backup running back

Tue, 07 Aug 2012 14:53:06 -0700

The battle for the No. 2 role behind Ray Rice in the Baltimore Ravens' backfield isn't clear right now. While RB Bernard Pierce (hamstring) appears to be the most suited for an every-down role if called upon, a hamstring injury has prevented him from being on the field much. RB Damien Berry bulked up and has had a solid camp while RB Anthony Allen hasn't shown much in moves to go along with his power-running style. Undrafted rookie RB Bobby Rainey has turned heads. The diminutive back has shown the ability to catch well out of the backfield and no longer appears to be a long shot to make the team's final roster.
