Bobby Rainey looks better than Doug Martin again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Granted, Doug Martin didn't play at all in the fourth quarter because of an ankle injury, but even before his departure, fellow Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey was the more effective of the two. In terms of running the ball, their numbers were similar -- Martin had 10 carries for 27 yards and Rainey had eight for 25 -- but Rainey played a much bigger role in the passing game, catching six passes for 41 yards.

True, the Buccaneers prefer Rainey on passing downs, and he's remained a relevant contributor in that phase of the game since filling in for an injured Martin in Weeks 2 and 3. But as a runner, he's been at least on par with Martin and probably even better. For the season, he has averaged 4.6 yards per carry to Martin's 2.9.

Rookie Charles Sims' eventual return from an ankle injury could complicate the situation, but if I own Martin, I'm handcuffing Rainey to him. And if I'm desperate for running back help, I might add Rainey even if I didn't own Martin. Injury or not, changes are coming.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey ran eight times for 25 yards and caught all six of his targets for 41 yards in the Week 8 loss to Minnesota. Rainey became Tampa Bay's primary backfield option when Doug Martin suffered a third-quarter ankle injury.

La Canfora: Trading Doug Martin could be possibility for Bucs
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Trading running back Doug Martin could be a possibility for the Buccaneers leading up to Tuesday's deadline, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason la Canfora.

Martin is off to a slow start this season and could be pushed out in favor of rookie Charles Sims or Bobby Rainey if he's traded. Martin has rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries, averaging 2.9 yards per attempt this season.

Buccaneers' Bobby Rainey gets limited work Week 6
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey received limited work Week 6.

Rainey had only seven carries for 42 yards. While he performed well when running the ball, the Bucs had to abandon the run game early. By halftime, the team was down 35-0. Rainey was targeted three times in the passing game, but failed to come up with a catch. Rainey is on a bye Week 7.

Touchdown doesn't change much for Bobby Rainey
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Yes, Bobby Rainey scored a touchdown on a 9-yard scamper Week 5 at New Orleans, but it was one of only nine touches he had all day. By comparison, Doug Martin had 17 and played nearly twice as many snaps.

In other words, nothing has changed for Rainey in terms of Fantasy value. He remains one of the better handcuff options in the game and has shown enough in a reserve role to give his owners some hope of him overtaking Martin someday, but that day has yet to arrive.

Rainey deserves to be owned in Fantasy, but your bench is the best place for him.
