Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) could return to practice soon and is eligible to return after the team's game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, Nov. 2. Sims underwent ankle surgery this offseason and is on the Reserve/Injured list with a designation to return.
Fantasy Tip: Tampa Bay running backs haven't necessarily been productive this year, so Sims might be given a chance sooner rather than later. It would be best to see how he will be used when he does return before plugging him in lineups.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed RB Charles Sims (ankle) on the Active/Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Sims will miss at least half of the season and may not have much value in fantasy this season. Doug Martin likely will get most of the work at running back while Sims is sidelined.

Tampa Bay Buccaners RB Charles Sims (ankle) is expected to be placed on the Active/Reserve/Injured list. The club liked what they saw in the offseason and believe he could be back in midseason.
Fantasy Tip: Until Sims comes back, Doug Martin should dominate passing-down work and be at minimum a high-end fantasy RB2. Sims could be worth a fantasy roster spot when he does return because of his explosiveness.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims has been turning heads in training camp, and running backs coach Tim Spencer said Sims reminds him of Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte. "I think you can tell, especially at skill positions, does a guy have it?" coach Lovie Smith said Wednesday, Aug. 6. "Charles Sims, I would say, has it. He hasn't played a game and right now we're not live an awful lot. But you can see enough in him to like his future with us."
Fantasy Tip: Sims caught 203 passes in his college days, and it is believed that will make him a perfect fit for offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford's offense. Sims could be a deep sleeper heading into draft day. Last season we saw Doug Martin and Mike James go down with injuries, opening the door for Bobby Rainey to take the reins and earn a starting job. An injury or two could make Sims fantasy relevant, and he could run away with the chance.

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.
Thu, 12 Jun 2014 13:54:13 -0700
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed third-round selection RB Charles Sims. Per NFL policy, all drafted rookies sign four-year deals.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims is expected to have a role in the passing game this upcoming season because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield as well as his pass protection abilities.
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.
