Week 4: vs Denver Broncos

All RB vs DEN

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Doug Martin is out due to a hamstring injury, leaving Charles Sims to carry the load while Martin gets healthy. Sims did this well during Week Three, handling 13/55/1 rushing with eight targets for 6/69/0 receiving, to go over 100 yards combined on the day. He is a very good, dual-threat back that is more than just a place-holder for Martin. The Denver rush defense has been flawed so far this year, currently ranking 27th in the NFL averaging 127.7 rushing yards allowed per game, with four rushing scores handed over to the opposition. They are 13th in the NFL averaging 19.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing backs through three games - last week Cincinnati posted 29/143/2 rushing against the Broncos. Sims has a good matchup to work with here, as strange as that sounds when we're talking about the once-feared Denver rush defense.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs LA (5 / 15 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Rodgers saw some limited work in relief of Charles Sims, and had a few nice runs. He picked up a 3rd down conversion in the 2nd quarter on 3rd and 1 and followed it up with an 8 yard reception on the next play, his only target of the day. Rodgers did get a couple of goal-line snaps, but was used primarily as a decoy for play-action plays. Rogers also returned kickoffs in Cecil Shorts' absence.

2016 Week 2 vs ARI (2 / 29 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Rodgers saw some action in the 2nd half of the game, coming in to relieve Charles Sims after Doug Martin left with a hamstring injury. He picked up 5 yards up the middle on his first carry of the game, then ripped off a 24 yard run on a pitch to the right side of the field two plays later. Rodgers was targeted once out of the backfield by a scrambling Winston, but the ball was overthrown.

Buccaneers | Charles Sims set for big workload? (Fri Sep 23, 11:01 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers said he only expects to play when RB Charles Sims needs a breather.

Our View: Sims could play like a RB1 this week -- even in a matchup against a tough Rams front four. Put him in your lineup as a mid-range RB2 just to be safe. He should dominate the touches in the Bucs backfield.
