Despite Doug Martin and Chris Sims not playing, Mike James saw limited touches and only managed 9 yards on 4 carries Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: James is clearly not part of the running back picture in Tampa. Bobby Rainey handled 19 totes to james 4, and Mike Glennon managed to run for more yards than James. With Sims and perhaps Martin back this week, James can be tossed aside with little consequence.
Mike James was thrust into Thursday's game against the Falcons after a Bobby Rainey fumble. He was then taken out of the game after rushing 4 times for 4 yards and catching 1 pass for -5 yards.
Fantasy Impact: You read that correctly. Mike James finished with negative yards. James had a great opportunity after the Rainey fumble to show the Bucs what he could do. If the game last night is indicative of what he can do, then he will not be in many games. Rainey and Martin are still the RBs to own from Tampa.
