Bucs sign rookie Charles Sims
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/14) The Buccaneers announced Thursday that they have signed rookie running back Charles Sims, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Sims was drafted in the third round from West Virginia. He's expected to compete for playing time with starter Doug Martin and play on passing downs.

Bucs could rely on multiple running backs
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/14) Buccaneers running back Doug Martin might not be a workhorse for Tampa Bay this season under new offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Tedford said he believes in alternating running backs, and behind Martin is rookie Charles Sim, Mike James and Bobby Rainey.

"I think you have to alternate," Tedford said Tuesday. "I don’t believe that one back can carry the load. It’s just too physical. I think you probably need to have two to three guys to bring different things to the table. But I think you at least need to have two to be able to spell them here and there and keep them healthy and tat type of thing. That's the goal to try and create some depth right there where there's not a dropoff when one guy comes in and another guy goes out. There's no dropoff. We just keep going."

Martin played in only six games last season before suffering a shoulder injury against Atlanta that eventually landed him on injured reserve. James and Rainey were both productive as replacement backs. Sims, at 6-foot, 214-pounds, is a bigger back who caught more than 200 passes in college.

Bucs website hints at Charles Sims role
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/30/14) The official website of the Buccaneers lays out a scenario where rookie Charles Sims will take "a handful of carries in [Doug Martin's] place and perhaps also (serve) as the third-down back."

This gels with what coach Lovie Smith said about Sims earlier this month, complimenting his hands and saying he "gives us a little more in the passing game than what we've had." 

Sims caught 45 passes for 401 yards and three touchdowns at West Virginia last season. 

Looks like Charles Sims could land passing downs role
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/14) When Lovie Smith mentioned to the media that rookie running back Charles Sims "gives us a little more in the passing game than what we've had," it suggested that the rookie is already slotted into a role as the passing downs back for the Bucs. 

This is important to note, Fantasy fans, because Doug Martin has previously displayed that he's a good receiver out of the backfield. He caught 49 passes for 472 yards as a rookie and 12 passes for 66 yards in six games last season. By not having that role as part of his regular workload, Martin could lose anywhere from three to eight touches per week to Sims. 

Naturally, Martin is still going to start and remain the primary rusher for the Bucs so long as he's effective. But we think Sims will be locked into that passing-downs role if he can keep up the good hands through training camp. If Martin were to lose playing time it would not be a lock that Sims would pick up the reps -- this is a team that still has Mike James and Bobby Rainey on it. They can work rushing downs. 

Martin is still a Top 12-ish Fantasy running back. Sims is worth a mid- to late-round pick in all leagues, especially and obviously PPR formats. 

Lovie explains the Charles Sims pick
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/14) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith explained why he and the team wanted to draft West Virginia running back Charles Sims ahead of other rookies like Devonta Freeman and Tre Mason. 

"We have an excellent running back coach who liked Matt Forte when no one else did," Smith explained per the Tampa Bay Times. "Tim Spencer came up to me after the Senior Bowl talking about Charles Sims. ... We just felt like Charles would bring something else (to our backfield). I'm talking about as a pass catcher out of the backfield. He has excellent hands, great quickness. He gives us a little more in the passing game than what we've had."

Sims exhibited some of those hands during a recent minicamp, running routes into open space and seamlessly catching them before running upfield.
