Bobby Rainey was the last man standing on Tampa Bay's running back depth chart in 2013. After injuries to Doug Martin and Mike James by midseason, Rainey had 12 or more touches in each of the team's final seven games. Rainey was not all that impressive outside of a rogue long run or two along the way. Doug Martin and Mike James are returning from injury and the team drafted Charles Sims in the third round. Rainey is stuck in a crowded backfield as the third or fourth most-talented back on the roster. Touches and Rainey's chances for impact, outside of multiple injuries in front of him, will be limited.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey and Mike James likely to compete for backup job (Fri Aug 15, 04:15 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey and RB Mike James are likely to compete for the back up running back job behind Doug Martin. RB Jeff Demps may also be in the mix as a situational player.

Our View: Keep an eye on both guys in the preseason here. Both James and Rainey looked good in limited duty last year. James got banged up after Doug Martin went down, which opened the door for Rainey. The former Western Kentucky back looked good against bad defenses but struggled against better teams.
