Mikes James runs wild for fantasy owners in overtime loss to Seattle

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike James picks up yards against the Seattle Seahawks - Otto Greule Jr

Tampa Bay running back Mike James rushed for 158 yards but did not find the end zone in the Week 9 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Tampa Bay running back Mike James rushed for 158 yards in the Week 9 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks. While James didn't find the end zone he did average 5.6 yards per carry against the Seahawks defense. It was a big improvement over the 3.6 yards per carry average he took into the game. James doesn't have a rushing touchdown on the year but he does add some value in the passing game.

Fantasy impact: Doug Martin is still sidelined with a shoulder injury that will ultimately require surgery and with James coming on you would think the Buccaneers would put him on injured reserved. James will retain the lead back role and is a must start right now. The Buccaneers face the Miami Dolphins in Week 10 on Monday Night Football. The Dolphins are giving up the 4th most fantasy points to running backs.
