Sims played on 28 offensive snaps in the Week 11 victory over the Eagles, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Sims played a clear second fiddle to Doug Martin on a day in which the Bucs starting tailback tallied 235 yards on the ground. Despite Martin's extraordinary day, Sims still tallied his second-highest number of carries in a game this season (10), and also posted his second-longest run of 2015 (17 yards). The second-year pro figures to continue receiving 5-8 carries a game most weeks, as well as a handful of looks in the passing game.
Sims gained 43 yards on 10 carries and secured three of four targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 45-17 victory over the Eagles. Sims was part of a Bucs ground game that tallied 287 total yards, the most in team history. The second-year pro had one of his more productive games on the ground, and had an opportunity with some additional playing time with the Bucs comfortably in the lead for most of the second half. He also secured his third touchdown reception of the season, making a difficult catch around two Redskins defenders down the right sideline to cap off a 13-play, 80-yard drive for the Bucs late in the second quarter. Sims and the Bucs next face the Colts in a Week 12 road tilt.
Sims tallied 26 snaps in the Week 10 victory over the Cowboys, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Bucs' passing down back received a more typical workload than the elevated one he'd seen in Week 9. Even in games such as Week 10, Sims playing time has had a stable floor, but he generally fails to receive enough touches to serve as nothing more than a deep PPR league bye-week plug-in at this point.
Sims gained 18 yards on five carries and secured two of his five targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 10-6 victory over the Cowboys. The Buccaneers' backup tailback's day was nowhere near as noteworthy as last week's breakout performance, with Sims serving his customary complementary role to Doug Martin but receiving less playing time than in Week 9. Sims will try to help Tampa match the frenetic pace of the Eagles offense in Week 11.
Sims was in on 32 offensive plays in the Bucs' Week 9 loss to the Giants, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Sims provided a spark for the Bucs in his extended playing time with a dynamic 59-yard sprint in the fourth quarter that made up for an earlier fumble. The Bucs backup tailback participated on his most snaps since Week 4, but many of the factors that led to his increased usage--such as Tampa playing catch-up the majority of the game--appear to have been consequential. Sims will likely resume his more typical complementary role in the Bucs' Week 10 home tilt versus Dallas.
