Charles 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.
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 received 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 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 for 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.
Charles 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.
Charles 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 Tampa Bay 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.
