Buccaneers | Mike James praised by head coach

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 20:30:21 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James brings energy to the team and is "one of those guys you cheer for," according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: With Doug Martin expected to play in some capacity, James is likely to have a limited role in Week 11 against the Bears. The matchup is friendly, but James is nothing more than a shot-in-the-dark DFS sleeper.

Buccaneers | Hot hand situation at RB for Tampa

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:33:24 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Peyton Barber and Mike James are expected to split the main ball carrying duties against the Chicago Bears in Week 10 with RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) out and RB Doug Martin (hamstring) unlikely to play. Beat writer Greg Auman predicts a hot hand situation, where the carrier starting out well gets more carries as the game progresses.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough situation for fantasy owners to predict, although Barber has run the ball well when given the chance. The Bears rank 14th against the run, allowing 100.8 yards per game. Barber is a good flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams while James is only worth attention in deeper formats.

Buccaneers | Four touches for Mike James

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 22:02:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James, re-signed earlier this week, had a carry for three yards with three receptions and 17 yards in the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: James is likely only going to be on the roster until Jacquizz Rodgers or Doug Martin are healthy enough to return. Then it's back to the waiver wire, so nothing to see here for fantasy owners.
