One of the most unpredictable players of the last three years, Sims has averaged just 2.8 and 2.9 yards per carry in two of three seasons, but looked like a different player in between when he averaged 4.9 yards per carry in 2015 and added 51 receptions for 561 yards and four touchdowns under Dirk Koetter. He looks to have lost the backup job to Jacquizz Rodgers, but if he wasn't healthy for all of last season, there may still be hope. He should still have a passing down role when Doug Martin returns from suspension, while Rodgers likely won't.

Charles Sims cleared for OTAs

Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat writer Scott Smith is reporting running back Charles Sims (shoulder) has been medically cleared for OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

Sims, who is coming off shoulder surgery, practiced on the first day of OTAs Tuesday. The 26-year-old rusher is expected to compete with Jacquizz Rodgers for the starting running back job to open the 2017 season with Doug Martin set to miss the first three games due to a suspension. However, I'd expect Sims to resume his role as Tampa Bay's No. 2 back and primary pass-catching specialist for the duration of the campaign.
