Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Charles Sims participated in 39 snaps in Week 4, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Sims continues to see the field as frequently as Doug Martin , and paid dividends in the passing game once again in Week 4, securing his second touchdown reception of the season.
The second-year back has already received 15 targets in 2015, and appears to have solidified a role as a change-of-pace back with the opportunity for 10-15 touches on a weekly basis.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was on the field for 38 snaps in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers , Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
It was an increase of seven snaps over what he received in Week 3, but the percentage of total offensive plays that Martin was in on (48 percent) was actually almost identical to the previous game's figure.
Although he and Charles Sims have divided the snaps virtually down the middle over the last two games, Martin continues to be the clear-cut lead back on the ground, receiving 20 carries to Sims' six against the Panthers in Week 4.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker did not register a catch or a target in Sunday's loss to the New York Jets .
Despite all the talk about the Dolphins' trade for Kenny Stills , signing of Greg Jennings and drafting of Parker in the first round, it's been the two holdovers from last season, Jarvis Landry and Rishard Matthews who have led the way. Parker has just four catches this year after missing much of the offseason with a foot injury, ranking ninth on the team. With interim head coach Dan Campbell looking for the Dolphins to become more physical, Parker may have trouble finding opportunities as the season moves forward.
