    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Amasses 89 yards total offense in season finale

    Sims gained 15 yards on four carries and secured nine of his 11 targets for 74 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers. The second-year pro put a stamp on his reputation as one of the premiere pass-catching backs in the NFL by hauling in a career-high nine receptions, giving him 51 for the season. With Tampa trailing throughout the second half, Sims received extra opportunity in his role as a passing-down back, a scenario that repeated itself on a few occasions this season when Lovie Smith's defense put the Bucs into the trail position in the latter stages of games. Sims was notably no slouch on the ground despite limited chances, collecting 529 yards on 4.9 yards per tote over 107 carries. He also gained over 40 yards in four of the season's final seven games despite receiving double-digit carries only once in those contests, and could conceivably take over lead back duties should the Bucs and Doug Martin be unable to come to an agreement for 2016. Regardless of his exact role in the backfield pecking order in 2016, Sims should once again be in a prime position to produce, particularly through the air. With measurables and a skill set similar to Matt Forte, Sims could possibly provide comparable all-around production to the Bears' Pro-Bowl back if he ever receives sufficient playing time.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Contributes 117 yards of total offense in Week 16 loss

    Sims gained 45 yards on four carries and secured three of five targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Bears. The backup tailback had an outstanding afternoon, managing a career-high of 11.3 yards per carry on the strength of a game-long 29-yard run. He also had a spectacular 50-yard touchdown catch open the second-half scoring, making a spinning catch at the 30-yard-line and streaking down the left sideline after Jameis Winston had scrambled away from pressure to find him. Sims actually had a more successful day than starter Doug Martin, and will look to close out a successful sophomore campaign in Week 17 against the Panthers.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Nearing 1,000 yards of total offense in 2015

    Sims is only one of four running backs in the NFL with at least 400 yards rushing and 400 yards receiving in 2015, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The versatile Sims has made significant strides in his sophomore season, after the first half of his rookie campaign was wiped out by a foot injury. Sims joins Devonta Freeman, Mark Ingram and Giovanni Bernard as the only backs in the NFL to have reached the 400/400 yardage milestones, and boasts the fourth-most receptions (39) by a running back in the league this season. His 4.7 yards per carry are also a significant improvement from the 2.8 figure he managed in 2014, and he needs only 116 combined yards over the final two games to reach 1,000 in total offense on the season. Sims has proven to be the perfect complement to starter Doug Martin, and the duo is easily the best Bucs running back tandem since the days when Warrick Dunn and Mike Alstott shared the backfield in Tampa.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Produces 72 yards total offense in Week 15 loss

    Sims gained 50 yards on seven carries and secured all three of his targets for 22 yards in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams. The backup tailback once again received extended playing time in the fourth quarter with Tampa in catch-up mode. Sims ripped off his second run of more than 20 yards in the last three weeks when he rambled for 35 yards midway through the fourth quarter to help get Tampa in position for what would eventually be a Connor Barth field goal. As customary, the second-year pro also made some contributions through the air, notching two catches on Tampa's last drive to help set up their final touchdown of the evening. Sims and the Bucs face off against the Bears in Tampa in Week 16.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: In on 27 snaps in Week 14 loss

    Sims played on 27 snaps in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Bucs' backup tailback played only one less snap than starter Doug Martin, with his pass-catching prowess keeping him on the field for long stretches in the second half as Tampa tried to overcome a deficit that climbed as high as 14 points. Sims' highly productive afternoon included a career-high six catches, and could have been even more explosive if Jameis Winston hadn't slightly overthrown him late in the fourth quarter for a game-tying touchdown. Sims is receiving solid playing time regardless of game flow, but he receives extended opportunity any time Tampa plays from behind.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Collects 74 yards total offense in Week 14 loss

    Sims gained 10 yards on five carries and secured six of eight targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints. Sims didn't find any success on the ground, but was almost a hero through the air. He'd gained a couple of steps on Saints linebacker Dannell Elerbe down the left sideline late in the fourth quarter, but was slightly overthrown on the play by Jameis Winston. Despite the missed opportunity, Sims did manage a career-high and team-high six catches, while also pacing the Bucs through the air with 64 yards. While his performances on the ground can be inconsistent week-to-week, Sims is clearly one of the best pass-catching backs in the league.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Participates on 22 snaps in Week 13 win

    Sims was in on 22 snaps in Tampa's Week 13 victory over the Falcons. Sims once again played second fiddle in the backfield to starter Doug Martin, who received his second-highest total of carries on the season. However, the second-year pro was highly efficient with his nine touches, collecting his second-best total of yards on the ground (56) in 2015, and adding another 21 in receptions. Sims and Martin have been working perfectly in concert all season, and both backs have luckily avoided the injury bug.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Amasses 77 yards total offense in Week 13

    Sims gained 56 yards on seven carries and secured two of three targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 23-19 victory over the Falcons. The rushing total was Sims' best since the season finale versus the Saints last year, when he totaled 69 yards on the ground. The second-year pro posted a game-long 25-yard run that was his second-best of the season as well. Sims also had a 10-yard burst in the third quarter that ended just shy of the goal line, and that led to a subsequent one-yard dive into the end zone by Doug Martin. The backup tailback continues to serve as an ideal complementary back to Martin, and has been an important part of the Bucs' third-ranked rushing attack.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Plays 30 snaps in Week 12 loss

    Sims was in on 30 snaps in Tampa's Week 12 loss to the Colts, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Bucs' backup tailback received some extra playing time in the fourth quarter due to Tampa playing from behind, but ironically received his least amount of carries on the season (four). Sims continued to produce through the air however, totaling 30 yards on three receptions. The second-year pro is putting together a solid season in his relatively limited playing time, averaging 4.4 yards on 80 carries and totaling three touchdown receptions through the first 11 games.

    Buccaneers' Charles Sims: Produces 39 yards total offense in Week 12 loss

    Sims gained eight yards on four carries and secured all three of his targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 25-12 loss to the Colts. The second-year pro received his fewest carries of the season, in a game in which the Colts leaned heavily on the pass in the second half in an attempt to catch up. Sims' three receptions did equal his second-highest total this season in that category, a number that he's also reached in four other games. The backup tailback will look to generate some production with his carries against a suddenly vulnerable Falcons run defense in Week 13.
