Mike James sees three touches in rout over Bears

The Bucs started out somewhat slow again, but ended up destroying the Bears 34-10. Mike James saw some action as the third running back. He had two carries for seven yards and one catch for five.

Fantasy Impact

James has no value in fantasy with Doug Martin back. Martin owners may want to add him to their watch list as a precaution if Martin goes down again with injury, but as of now James should be owned in zero percent of leagues.

Mike James jumps into action in first game back with Bucs

Mike James got one carry for three yards and caught three passes for 17 yards on Thursday night against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

James returned to the Bucs after he was signed off the Lions' practice squad on Monday, but he was forced into action with the Bucs desperate at running back. It's too hard to glean anything from his brief time on the field, but if Jacquizz Rodgers and Doug Martin remain out in Week 10, James should likely get a healthy share of the carries along with Peyton Barber against the Bears.

Mike James hardly used in Bucs loss to Browns

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 squanders an opportunity

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.
