News: Rainey had 144 yards on 22 carries in Sunday's loss to St. Louis. Impact: Rainey started for the injured Doug Martin and rewarded any owners who trusted him. He also had three catches for 30 yards. He did this a few times last year as well with games of 163 and 127 yards in a four-week span.(STATS, 4:54pm)

News: Rainey had 22 carries for 144 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to St. Louis. Impact: Rainey looked great while filling in for an injured Doug Martin (knee), averaging a strong 6.5 yards per carry. Rainey's performance is even more impressive, when you consider that the Rams completely shut down Adrian Peterson in Week 1. It's too early to tell if Martin will play next week, but Rainey has probably carved out a bigger role, regardless.(RotoWire, )

News: Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin is sitting out Sunday's game against St. Louis because of a knee injury. Rainey is expected to get the start. Impact: Martin was limited in practice last week and had been listed as questionable.(STATS, 2:54pm)

News: Rainey will start at running back for the inactive Doug Martin (knee) on Sunday against the Rams. Impact: The knee injury suffered by Martin in Week 1 is severe enough to force an absence, which Rainey will attempt to take advantage of. Due to Martin's season-ending shoulder injury a year ago, Rainey started the last seven games in 2013, accumulating 129 carries for 487 yards (3.8 YPC) and five rushing touchdowns. While he only hauled in 10 receptions for 16 yards during that stretch, Rainey did record a score through the air as well.(RotoWire, )

News: With Fox's Jay Glazer reporting that the Bucs are planning to deactivate Doug Martin for Week 2, Rainey is in line for a start. Impact: There are conflicting reports about the Bucs' intentions, and with them playing a late-afternoon game, you might not want to rely on this information, if you have a decent alternative to start ahead of Rainey.(RotoWire, )

News: Rainey had four carries for 12 yards and caught two passes on two targets for eight yards with a touchdown late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to Carolina. Impact: Rainey gave Tampa Bay a mini spark when Doug Martin exited with a leg injury, but he lost a key fumble late in the game, when the team was trying to mount a comeback. If Martin's injury proves to be anything serious, Rainey should be first in line for a big role.(RotoWire, )
