Buccaneers sign RB D.J. Ware

If something terrible happens to Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Doug Martin @DougMartin22, it won't be just LeGarrette Blount @L_Blount27 trying to fill his shoes. The Bucs signed ex-Giants running back D.J. Ware @DJDannyWare28 on Saturday. Ware, 27, spent his first five seasons in New York but saw very limited duty throughout. His 73 touches last year were a career high by a wide margin. The Giants deemed him expendable after David Wilson clearly outperformed Ware during the preseason.

Fantasy Analysis:

Ware is not a threat to Martin's workload; the rookie is still the Bucs' main ball-carrier and a solid RB2. Ware was added as insurance because he is more versatile than Blount. He can be a decent pass-catcher -- something Blount isn't -- and will presumably act as the third-down back if Martin gets hurt. New team for Ware, same nonexistent fantasy value.
