The Buccaneers re-signed running back Charles Sims, according to Rick Stroud.

Stroud says it's a one-year deal for the 2014 third-round pick of the Bucs. Sims has proven to be a very capable receiver through his first four NFL seasons, and he'll look to have a solid role as one of Jameis Winston's targets this season. The re-signing of Sims should have little effect on what Tampa Bay does in the draft at the running back position.

Charles Sims held to one touch in win over the Saints.

Sims rushed once for six yards. The 27-year-old finishes the season with 21 carries for 95 yards and a 35/249/1 receiving line. A free agent this offseason, Sims is unlikely to turn into a reliable fantasy option in 2018.

Charles Sims caught a 19-yard pass in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

He also rushed once for no gain. Sims isn't a fantasy option in the regular-season finale when the 4-11 Bucs take on the Saints.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims has highlight taken away in loss to Atlanta.

Sims caught four passes for six yards, but he had an impressive run-after-catch overturned because his knee was down at the start of his broken-tackle spree. Tampa Bay's receiving back won't be a fantasy option in Week 16 against the Panthers.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims handles five touches in Week 14 loss.

Sims rushed three times for 16 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards. He isn't a fantasy option as a part-time player on a four-win team .

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims gets five touches in Week 13.

Sims carried three times for 16 yards and added two receptions for 35 yards versus the Packers. Sims is only a recommended fantasy option in very deep PPR leagues.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims sees four touches in Week 12 loss.

Sims caught three passes for 26 yards and rushed once for three yards. The receiving back doesn't see enough volume to be a fantasy option. Leave him on the waiver wire.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims sees four touches in Week 11 win.

Sims rushed once for three yards and caught three passes for 25 yards. The receiving back isn't a fantasy option with the amount of touches he's getting.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims finds the end zone in win over the Jets.

Sims rushed three times for 20 yards and caught three passes for 10 yards, including a six-yard touchdown. Tampa Bay's receiving back can stay on the waiver wire heading into a matchup with the Dolphins.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims sees two touches in loss to the Saints.

He had two receptions for 11 yards and didn't receive a carry. The stats are particularly concerning because Tampa Bay was down big throughout, but Peyton Barber ended up being the team's backfield leader with 13 touches. Sims isn't a fantasy option.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims totals 15 yards in loss to the Bills.

Sims rushed twice for eight yards and caught two passes for seven yards. He isn't a fantasy option with only a handful of weekly touches behind Doug Martin.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims caught four passes for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona.

He did not receive a carry. Sims is locked in as the team's receiving back behind Doug Martin, but he's not worth owning in fantasy leagues on a loaded offense. The Bucs play the Bills next Sunday.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims catches five passes in Week 5.

Sims gained 31 yards on his five receptions (seven targets) while also getting one carry for three yards. Sims had only three receptions coming into the game, so maybe he'll be more involved in the passing game moving forward. He's still not a fantasy option in PPR leagues yet.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims gets three touches in loss to the Vikings.

Sims had two carries for four yards and one reception for nine yards. He can be rostered in PPR leagues, but he shouldn't be in fantasy lineups right now.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims fumbles in Bucs' Week 2 win.

Sims had two carries for two yards and two receptions for seven yards. The fumble won't make Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter happy, and it could lead to a decrease in playing time for the fourth-year back. He's off the fantasy radar in standard-sized leagues right now.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Sims rushed three times for 23 yards in Friday night's preseason opener.

Competing for a role with Doug Martin suspended for the first three games of the regular season, this was a good start for Sims, though he wasn't involved as a pass catcher. He might not be a lock for the roster if rookie Jeremy McNichols shows enough in the preseason, but Sims should keep his spot if he keeps making the most of his touches.

Charles Sims doesn't get much work, despite Doug Martin being a healthy scratch.

Jacquizz Rodgers took over the lead role in the backfield, and had 17 touches compared to seven for Sims. Sims had three carries for 12 yards and four catches for 30 yards (on four targets) against New Orleans. Sims is simply a PPR FLEX option, and it's concerning they didn't give him more touches with Martin inactive.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims doesn't do much against Dallas.

Sims had three carries for four yards and three catches for 15 yards. He still has some FLEX value, especially in PPR. He had 50 yards last week against the Saints—his next opponent.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims (knee) totals 50 yards in first game back.

Sims rushed four times for 17 yards and caught three passes for 33 yards in the Bucs' win over the Saints. You can probably expect Sims' touches to increase to the double-digits as he knocks off the rust, so Sims will have FLEX value the rest of the way. He gets Dallas next week on SNF.

Charles Sims | Buccaneers RB

Charles Sims (knee) has been activated by the Bucs from IR.

He's missed the last eight games. He will be activated and play this week against the Saints. With the Bucs run game struggling, Sims could get a good amount of work right away. He has a good chance to push FLEX value these last few games and is worth a pickup.
