Fantasy Impact: 

Sims should step into the RB1 role with Jacquizz Rodgers chipping in as the change-of-pace back. Sims should offer RB2 numbers, though his schedule is rough, with Denver and Carolina after this week's matchup against the Rams. It looks like Martin is planning to return after the team's Week 6 bye.
