2015 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Dec-06-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): For the fourth time in five games, Sims has had fewer than 10 touches in a game. He averages 9.8 touches per game with two TDs scored. In Week 8 he had 46 combined yards on nine touches vs. the Falcons. Low upside with Martin continuing to run the ball well.
Sims saw plenty of action over his four-year college career with Houston and West Virginia. He finished his career with 3,465 rushing yards on 592 carries and 40 rushing TDs. His biggest asset is his explosiveness and reliability in the passing game (203 catches for 2,008 yards and 11 TDs). Charles has a good feel as a receiver and he has plenty of experience in pass protection. He has decent size (6'0" and 212 lbs.), but it would be nice to see bulk up a bit. Sims ran a 4.48 40-yard dash at the 2014 NFL combine, but showed questionable quickness (4.30 20-yard shuttle). His scouting report suggests his quick feet and acceleration are his biggest assets. In the run game, he doesn't run with power or create his own offense by breaking tackles. He'll turn 25 in mid-September so his age isn't an advantage. However, he hasn't assumed a high workload. His rookie season in the NFL was cut short due to an ankle injury in mid-August. Over the last eight games of the 2014 season, Sims tallied 85 touches, including 19 receptions for 375 yards and a touchdown. He only averaged 2.8 yards per rush but flashed upside in the passing game (10 yards per catch). I don't think he is built to be a lead runner and may have weakness in pass protection. I see him as the clear number two back for the Bucs with a chance at 100 to 125 carries and possibly 40 receptions. His ADP (110) is slightly ahead of Martin in the early draft season as the 36th RB off the table. If I end up with Martin on my roster, it would make sense to add Sims as a RB4 if he falls to a reasonable price on draft day.

|11.09||The Fantasy Executive - Sims project to be the 3rd down back in Tampa. He could have value as a pass catching Flex during the bye weeks. (Comments Added Sat Aug 8 3:36:06 p.m. ET 2015)|
