I can stand behind Charles Sims as delivering the X-Factor for Tampa Bay. On 61 attempts, he has laid down 284 yards this season. Sims is a sleeper waiting to wake up and shock the NFL.
“while Martin has deservingly earned plenty of plaudits and league-wide recognition for making good on the Koetter-driven offseason hype, Sims has quietly been a solid handcuff behind him. With 4.7 yards per carry, Sims has enjoyed an efficient sophomore season in a limited capacity, earning 15 touches in a game on just one occasion. He turned those 16 Week 5 opportunities against the Jacksonville Jaguars into 136 yards from scrimmage, following that up with 49 yards on ten carries in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins after the bye week. He also showed the ability to overcome in-game adversity, because, in yesterday’s loss against the New York Giants, he had a jump-out-of-your-seat 59-yard run after committing a reproachable fumble earlier in the game.” – Report by Joe Soriano
