Mike James (RB, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Baller Move: Add Immediately

Analysis: With Doug Martin sidelined indefinitely, Mike James stands to be the feature back in Tampa for multiple weeks, if not the remainder of the season. James stepped into his new role in the third quarter and performed well enough, gaining 45 yards on 14 carries and adding three receptions for eight yards. His potential role in the passing game only makes him even more attractive in PPR leagues. The fact that James saw 17 touches in less than a half of his new role certainly bodes well for his volume moving forward. With so few feature backs in the NFL this year, guys like James who get the call due to injury are just as valuable as those who earn it through talent.
