RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Sparingly used last season, the third-year running back was buried on the depth chart behind incumbent starter Doug Martin and 2014 third-round pick Charles Sims. He saw offensive snaps in just seven games last season, playing just 43 total on the season and accumulating 37 rushing yards on 19 carries. Martin and Sims return this season and are expected to split the lion's share of carries in the Bucs' backfield. With the team's investment in the two men ahead of him on the depth chart, barring injury, James is unlikely to see a surge in playing time and will simply provide depth in the backfield while serving on special teams as well.

2014

After starter Doug Martin went down with a season-ending shoulder injury, James flashed as a legitimate replacement with 4.9 YPC and 10 catches on 11 targets. However, it was short-lived as James went down with a broken ankle in Week 10. It was then teammate Bobby Rainey who came in and ended up as the Bucs' leading rusher in 2013. James remains in the backup mix again, along with Rainey and rookie Charles Sims, once he returns from an ankle injury.

2013

James will back up Doug Martin and Brian Leonard for the Bucs.
