There is no 2015 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2014 profile:
Rainey will more than likely slip to fourth on the depth chart because of the addition of Sims. His value is tied to the health of the three guys ahead of him. Rainey led the team in rushing last year, but that hardly means he was good. He is not worth a roster spot unless the Bucs officially give him a larger role in the offense.Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Rusty Reeves
The Buccaneers will have a running back competition in camp this offseason. Doug Martin, Charles Sims, Bobby Rainey and Mike James will all be competing for the job. Martin is the assumed starter, however, the coaching staff is reportedly "very high" on Sims. The talented second-year back missed nearly all of his rookie season due to an ankle injury. He was highly touted heading into last season and that has not changed this season. After back-to-back disappointing seasons from Martin, he's far from a lock to win the starting job.
Sims should and will be the starting RB in Tampa. While he's a solid runner, he'll be a PPR monster. There is going to be some sort of committee in the Bucs backfield, nevertheless, no one on the team has nearly the pass-catching skills as Sims. He will have more value than any Bucs RB and should be drafted as a potential flex option. You should pass on Martin, he will not be a viable fantasy option.
