Description: Buccaneers backup/change-of-pace running back Bobby Rainey may be in for a heavy workload with starter Doug Martin dealing with an ankle issue.
Insight: Rainey did rush for 144 yards in Week 2, but isn't thought of as a workhorse back. Charles Sims returned from the injured list this week and could get nearly an even split with Rainey.

Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey somehow manufactured a respectable night from the Thursday night disaster.
Insight: Starting running back Doug Martin wasn't available and Rainey managed to combine for 105 yards from scrimmage. Considering the ugliness of the 56-14 massacre, his owners have to be grateful for double-digit points.

Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey has a chance to start again on Thursday against the Falcons.
Insight: Starting running back Doug Martin will try to give it a go, but if in pregame warmups it is decided Martin cannot play, the Buccaneers will turn to Rainey, who gained 167 yards on 32 touches against Atlanta in Week 11 last season. The Falcons defense does not look much better this year as it has allowed 284 yards and five touchdowns to opponents' tailbacks so far this year. Rainey is a borderline RB1 in Week 3 and must-start if Martin is out.

Description: Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey started for the Bucs in Weeks 2 and was certainly worth putting in fantasy lineups.
Insight: With Doug Martin inactive, Rainey rushed for 144 yards and caught 30 yards in passes. Nice work for a last-second starter.

Description: Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey will apparently start for the Bucs in Weeks 2, according to a Jay Glazer report.
Insight: Doug Martin will not be active, accoprding to Glazer, leaving Rainey as the starter with either Mike James and FB Jorvorskie Lane as backups.

Description: Tampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey pounded his way to 127 rushing yards in Sunday's win over Buffalo.
Insight: Rainey opened the game with an 80-yard touchdown burst and was able to coast after that. The Western Kentucky product is averaging 97 rushing ypg over his last four contests. He'll be a flex option next week against the Niners.

Description: Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey didn't look like a third-stringer Sunday against Atlanta.
Insight: Rainey, who was waived by the Cleveland Browns earlier this season, took 30 handoffs for 163 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a touchdown. It's clear that Bucs coach Greg Schiano prefers to use one running back rather than a committee, as he heavily featured Doug Martin and Mike James before they suffered season-ending injuries. Now it's Rainey's turn.

Description: Former Browns halfback Bobby Rainey has caught on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Insight: Cleveland waived Rainey on Friday. He'll back up starter Mike James while Doug Martin is out with a torn labrum.
