Buccaneers | Charles Sims can be three-down back

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 08:07:32 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims can be a three-down back if needed, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: Doug Martin is a free agent, and Sims could be a backup plan if the team is unable to re-sign him. Sims would be a high-end RB3 if Martin departs.

Buccaneers | Interesting year for Charles Sims

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 16:40:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims finished with more than 1,000 total yards and four receiving touchdowns in 2015, but he did not score on the ground.

Fantasy Tip: Doug Martin was obviously the go-to man for the Buccaneers on the ground, but Sims was called on frequently in the passing game. He was the only running back to finish in the top-20 in PPR scoring without a rushing touchdown. As of now, he should be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 in PPR formats next season.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims totals 117 yards, score

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:43:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims rushed four times for 45 yards in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears with three receptions for a team-best 72 yards and a touchdown on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sims can be a productive back when he gets the touches, but Martin re-emerged as a top-tier fantasy option this season to stunt Sims' growth. Still, he could be a big-time fantasy option in 2016.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims totals 77 yards

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 21:23:11 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims rushed seven times for 56 yards in the Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons, and he added two receptions for 21 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sims has fallen well behind Doug Martin on the depth chart, but he still gets plenty of touches and has value as a flex option in most fantasy formats.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims totals 16 touches

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 18:07:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims ran 12 times for 51 yards in the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added four receptions for a team-high 85 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Sims ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) saw plenty of touches, but it was Doug Martin who stole the show with 27 total touches, 158 total yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. As long as Martin remains healthy then Sims is second fiddle and has minimal appeal in FantasyScore.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims has seven touches

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 21:53:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims carried five times for 12 yards in the Week 1 game against the Tennessee Titans, and he added two grabs for 23 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Sims ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) needs to do more with his opportunities if he is going to eat into Doug Martin's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) touches. Avoid Sims in FantasyScore for now.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims adds muscle

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 12:19:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims has added some muscle during the offseason, which could help him be a better runner between the tackles.

Fantasy Tip: Sims could compete for the starting running back job during training camp but should still have a solid role if he loses the competition. Owners could consider Sims as a handcuff to Doug Martin or an option in late rounds to add depth at the running back position.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims could start for TB

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:31:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims has a solid chance of beating out RB Doug Martin for Tampa Bay's starting running back gig, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has mostly been a disappointment since his outstanding rookie season. Sims hasn't been given a lot of opportunities to show what he's capable of as he only played in eight games of his rookie season last year. It could end up being more of a running back by committee (Bobby Rainey and Mike James are also available), but Martin needs to step up his game if he doesn't want Sims to supplant him.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims excited for new season

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:25:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is anxious to capitalize on his short-lived 2014 campaign when he suffered a torn ankle tendon that caused him to miss the first eight games of the season. "I was just getting in the groove and then the season was over," Sims said. "I'm looking forward to next year and it will be interesting to see what's going to happen."

Fantasy Tip: Sims is expected to play a big role for the Bucs in 2015, but he'll still have Doug Martin, Bobby Rainey and Mike James to compete with for playing time. If it wasn't such a crowded backfield, Sims could be a valuable asset to fantasy squads, and that could still end up being the case. For now, however, he's in RB3 territory.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims will be featured

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:17:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is viewed very highly by his coaches, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com. Sims is expected to be the featured back in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Sims is likely to feature very prominently in the passing game. Sims averaged 10.0 yards per reception on 19 catches last season, showing promise in an area of the game in which Doug Martin struggles mightily. Sims should be available in the late rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts, and he has the ability to wind up as an RB2.
