The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived running back Mike James on Tuesday, per Rand Getlin of the NFL Network.
James wasn't active in any of their first three games and was passed over by Doug Martin , Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey on the depth chart to start the year. The 25 year old will now try to catch on with another team.
Their healthy scratches are tackle
David was the only player listed on the injury report. He came into the game questionable due to a hamstring injury. David was able to get through limited practice Wednesday, but did not participate in practice Thursday and Friday.
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.
