    Buccaneers' Mike James: Doesn't take a snap in 2015 season

    James had two separate stints on the Bucs roster in 2015, but didn't take a snap from scrimmage. The third-year pro made the final roster out of training camp, but was inactive for the season's first three contests before being released on Sept. 29. He was re-signed to the practice squad and subsequently promoted to the 53-man roster on Dec. 26, but nevertheless failed to get on the field over the final two games of the season. A sixth-round pick in the final draft of the Greg Schiano regime in 2013, James showed flashes as a rookie after an injury to Doug Martin provided him with some playing time, collecting 295 yards on 60 carries and notching 10 receptions for 43 yards over eight games. However, James played sparingly in 2014 behind Martin, Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey, and may find himself on the outside looking in once again heading into the 2016 offseason.

    Buccaneers' Mike James: Inactive Sunday

    James is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears. James was added from the practice squad a day earlier. With all of Doug Martin, Charles Sims, and Bobby Rainey ahead of him on the depth chart, James will likely need one of those players to suffer an injury before he has a chance at being active for a game.

    Mike James: Added to active roster

    James was added to the Buccaneers' active roster Saturday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Buccaneers placed defensive tackle Akeem Spence (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, leaving an open spot on the active roster for James. However, James may have a hard time getting on the field when the Bucs have the ball given that he'll be behind workhorse Doug Martin and the versatile Charles Sims. James will likely add some depth on special teams.

    Buccaneers RBs struggle to stand out in loss

    The Buccaneers split the workload in the backfield pretty evenly in Week 10, but none of their options really stood out in a 27-17 loss to the Falcons. Bobby Rainey got the start at running back for the Buccaneers, but was a non-factor in the rushing game, finishing with just 14 yards on six carries. However, neither of the team's other options did much more, as Mike James had just 16 yards on four carries, while Charles Sims had 23 yards on eight carries in his first action. Rainey made more of an impact in the passing game, catching four for 42 yards, but that might not be enough to keep him in the starting role. The Buccaneers are looking for someone who can run the ball well, and until they find a go-to option, the door is open. Rainey is the more proven commodity, and should be valued more than Sims for Fantasy purposes moving forward. However, the team probably also wants to see what they have in Sims, their third-round pick this year, so he will get his chance. At this point, both probably have just low-end value for Week 11 against Washington.
