Buccaneers | Charles Sims limited

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:28:19 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Sims shared carries with Doug Martin in Week 12, so it is not known how many carries he will receive if he is able to play this week. Sims only costs $4,100 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option but will be facing a tough Cincinnati Bengals rush defense.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin says he's the same runner

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 13:27:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin says he's the same running back he was as a rookie in 2012 when he took the league by storm. However, he's averaging just 2.8 yards per carry and has only 193 rushing yards and one score this season, but he's missed two games with a knee injury and three with an ankle ailment. He's healthy now, but he only mustered 27 yards on 11 carries in Week 12 while sharing time with RBs Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey.

Fantasy Tip: It's very hard to trust Martin ($3,300) at FantasyScore with Sims and Rainey also competing for touches in this backfield. If there was ever a week to roll the dice on Martin in a flex spot, though, Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals might be it. The Bengals have allowed an average of 21.73 fantasy points to runners in 2014.

Buccaneers | Lovie Smith calls out O-line

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 16:43:38 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said the team's offensive line needs to do a better job after they rushed for a total of 66 yards in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. Smith also said the team's pass blocking wasn't at its best. "A defense can tee off on you once you can't run the football," Smith said. "We talk an awful lot about being a balanced attack. But when you can't run it consistently that hurts. Believe me, we don't want to be a team that's passing the ball that much."

Fantasy Tip: It's tough to be too excited about any of the Bucs' running back options with a poor offensive line. Charles Sims, Bobby Rainey and Doug Martin are part of a frustrating backfield in Tampa Bay. They face a pourous Cincinnati Bengals unit in Week 13, though, if you're willing to roll the dice on this running-back-by-committee.

Buccaneers | Jorvorskie Lane to have surgery

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 16:39:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers FB Jorvorskie Lane (ankle) will have surgery on his broken right ankle Tuesday, Nov. 25, and he'll miss the rest of the year. Lane is unsure how long he'll take to recover. The Buccaneers are left without a true fullback, and they'll likely sign one. TE Luke Stocker has served as a fullback at times.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin quiet in return

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 19:17:18 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) returned to the lineup in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. He carried 11 times for 27 yards. He was sidelined for the past three games due to an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should avoid Martin until he starts to show a little more consistency. Rust was inevitable after a long layoff, especially on the road against a decent defense.

Buccaneers | Mike Evans into end zone again

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 18:23:16 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans had three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. He has now scored at least one touchdown in four consecutive games.

Fantasy Tip: Evans has emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option, even as his price tag has continued to rise. He continues to score touchdowns and pay for himself.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins injured

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 12:57:33 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) suffered a back injury in Week 12 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch for an update in the next day or so. Seferian-Jenkins has been relatively quiet the last few games but has a solid role in the team's passing game.
