Doug Martin doesn't give Bobby Rainey a chance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/14) In his return from a knee injury Week 4 at Pittsburgh, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin led the way with 14 carries. The second-most went to the player who thrived in his absence, Bobby Rainey. He got only four.

That's mostly good news in Fantasy, but for the Rainey owners, perhaps it isn't. Certainly, you'd rather see one of the two backs carry the load rather than another timeshare, but maybe Martin isn't the one to do it. He scored a touchdown, sure, but he gained only 40 yards on those 14 carries, giving him 2.1 yards per carry on the year.

Rainey, by comparison, is averaging 4.9 yards per carry. True, he owes much of that to the 144 yards he had on 22 carries against the Rams in Week 2, but despite the two early fumbles Week 3 at Atlanta, he still finished with 105 total yards in that game, 64 on the receiving end.

Ideally, if you own Martin, you own Rainey and vice versa. Whichever gets the carries looks like he'll get the vast majority of them. But I still have some doubts as to which running back will emerge in the long run.

Several chip in to help Tampa Bay beat Steelers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) Several Buccaneers receivers and running backs made small contributions in a Week 4 upset of Pittsburgh.

The most significant were tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and wideout Russell Shepard. The former caught three passes for 44 yards while the latter snagged two for 30 yards.

Fellow wideout Solomon Patton made the most of his opportunity, racing 19 yards on an end-around. Jorvorskie Lane added one carry for two yards while Bobby Rainey managed the same yardage on four attempts while catching one pass for 16 yards. 

Buccaneers backs heading for solid matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/14) With Doug Martin returning to practice ahead of Week 4 against the Steelers, the Buccaneers running back picture if a bit more cloudy than it was a week ago at this time. With a promising matchup on the way against the Steelers, can you trust either Martin or backup Bobby Rainey Sunday?

If Martin is able to overcome his knee injury, he is the guy you want in your lineup, obviously. Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard have him as a top-20 running back option for Week 4, and that might even be underselling his upside a bit. There is risk in relying on Martin, obviously, but the Steelers have provided little resistance against the run this season, allowing opposing running backs to rack up 5.5 yards per carry so far.

If Martin is unable to play unexpectedly, as was the case a week ago, Rainey should slide up the running back ranks. He made up for a pretty disastrous Week 3 performance in garbage time, but was better than his two fumbles might indicate. Rainey racked up over 100 all-purpose yards, coming off his massive 144-yard performance the week before.

At the very least, both Rainey and Martin should be owned ahead of this matchup. If Martin is good to go, he will be worth starting, while Rainey makes for a nice handcuff option if he suffers a setback. 

Bobby Rainey takes out the garbage Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/19/14) Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey managed to get some action in garbage time after an awful start.

Rainey was terrible early on, fumbling on his fourth touch of the contest. He was benched for two series before returning to the game. On the first drive of the third quarter, Rainey fumbled again. With the team trailing 56-0, Rainey actually managed to pick up some yardage in the final quarter. He was primarily used in the passing game, but also picked up a few rushing yards.

Rainey finished with 41 rushing yards on 11 attempts, and 64 receiving yards on six catches. He actually led all Bucs receivers in yardage and catches. 

Rainey will take on the Steelers Week 4. 

Bucs might use three RBs Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/18/14) Even if Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, who is questionable due to a knee injury, suits up Thursday against the Falcons, coach Lovie Smith indicated the team will use multiple running backs to pace the rushing attack Week 3.

Bobby Rainey rushed for 144 yards in a Week 2 loss vs. St. Louis and third-string running back Mike James had six carries with Martin sidelined Sunday.

"We want to play more than one running back, two, maybe three," Smith said, per ESPN. "That’s why we’ve had three (active) every time we could. That’s just making our running back position stronger."
