News: Rainey carried four times for two yards and caught one pass for 16 yards in Sunday's win over the Steelers. Impact: Meanwhile, fellow RB Doug Martin returned to action and saw the bulk of the Bucs' carries Sunday, rushing 14 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in the contest. While Rainey figures to see his share of touches in the coming weeks, as long as Martin can stay healthy, it looks like Rainey will work in a complementary role out of the team's backfield.(RotoWire, )

News: Rainey had 11 carries for 41 yards and seven receptions for 64 yards, but he also lost a pair of fumbles in Thursday's 56-14 loss to the Falcons. Impact: Rainey was briefly benched following a first-quarter fumble, and he then lost another at the beginning of the second half. Most of his fantasy production came on short passes in garbage-time, but he did run hard, if not smart, throughout the game. Mike James also struggled, logging just four yards on four carries and minus-five yards on one reception. With 10 days before the Bucs' next contest, Doug Martin (knee) has a pretty good chance to return. While Rainey still figures to have a role -- possibly even a sizable one -- in the Tampa Bay offense, he didn't help his own cause with the fumbles.(RotoWire, )

News: Rainey's teammate, Doug Martin is inactive for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Impact: Rainey, who recorded 174 total yards in Week 2 against the Rams, is slated to head the Bucs' Week 3 rushing attack against a Falcons' defense that has allowed five TDs on the ground, along with an average of 154.5 rushing yards through two contests.(RotoWire, )

News: Though Rainey's teammate, Doug Martin, is in line to test out his knee in advance of Thursday's game against the Falcons, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Martin appears unlikely to play in the contest. Impact: While the situation merits continued attention leading up to Thursday's kickoff, it appears as though things are trending in a direction in which Rainey will have a chance to build off his strong effort (22 carries for 144 yards and three catches for 30 yards) in Week 2 against the Rams.(RotoWire, )

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)
