Fantasy Analysis | 1416785855
Buccaneers backfield remains unproductive
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers turned away from running back Charles Sims in Week 12, as Doug Martin got the start in a 21-13 loss to the Bears Sunday.  

Martin led the team in carries with 11, but ended up second among the team's running backs in all-purpose yards, as he finished with 11 carries for 27 yards and one catch for 4. Sims had just six carries, but rushed for 22 yards and added 11 yards on his two receptions.

Bobby Rainey also got involved, mostly in the passing game, where he finished with 18 yards on four receptions, however it is clear Martin and Sims are the main contenders for carries at this point. Martin has done little all season to earn the benefit of the doubt, but Sims also failed to impress when given the chance.

At this point, none of the Buccaneers' backs looks like someone you want to pin your hopes on for Fantasy purposes. Heading into Week 13 against the Bengals, it might be best to avoid this backfield.

Bucs backup runners do little Week 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers backup running backs did little Week 12 against the Bears.

Charles Sims got the most work, gaining 22 yards on six carries. He also caught two passes for 11 receiving yards. Bobby Rainey received just one carry, gaining 3 yards. He was a much bigger threat in the passing game, picking up three receptions for 18 yards. Fullback Jorvorskie Lane carried the ball one time for 2 yards.

They'll take on the Bengals Week 13.

Bucs remain committed to run
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers rank 28th in rushing with 85.8 yards per game, and they mustered just 48 yards on 21 carries in the Week 11 loss at Washington. But quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo, who calls the offensive plays, said the team won't abandon the run.

"We're going to continue to try to do it," he told ESPN.com. "The passes and rushes were pretty balanced in the [Washington] game. There might not be 5-, 8- or 10-yard rushes in there, but there were some plays in there where it could have been. There were a couple of times where it gets close and we trip over our own guy. It's getting there."

Running back Doug Martin could return this week from his ankle injury, joining Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey in the backfield. Tampa Bay visits Chicago on Sunday.

Charles Sims getting more work than Bobby Rainey
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey got the start in Week 11 against the Redskins, but he quickly took a backseat to rookie Charles Sims in the 27-7 win.

Neither back was particularly effective in the win, but Rainey hardly got the chance to show what he could do. He finished the game with just 5 rushing yards on four carries, while Sims had 13 carries for 36 yards. The duo's struggles came against a Redskins defense that has allowed just one of their last four opponents to average more than 4 yards per carry on the ground.

Rainey has been productive when given the chance this season, but it looks like Sims might get the bulk of the work down the stretch. If you have to own one of the Bucs' backs, Sims looks like the one at this point.

Bucs' Sims, Rainey total 40 rushing yards in Week 11 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers running backs Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey totaled 40 rushing yards and 8 receiving yards during a 27-7 win Week 11 at Washington.

Rainey drew the start in place of the injured Doug Martin (knee) Sunday, but it was Sims who got most of the carries out of the backfield. He had a team-high 36 rushing yards on 13 carries. Rainey had just 4 yards on five carries.

In the passing game, Sims was targeted four times, totaling three catches for 8 yards. Rainey had no catches and one target.

The Bucs are back in action Week 12 at Chicago.
