  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard finding a rhythm    Sun Aug 20, 10:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard showed improved chemistry with QB Jameis Winston during practice Sunday, Aug. 20, according to Mark Cook of PewterReport.com.

Footballguys view: Winston loves throwing to the TE position as evident by his college career at FSU and his targets for Cameron Brate in 2016. Howard is big, fast and physical on the field. He is going to split time this year with Brate in the new-look Bucs passing attack, and that limits the rookie's fantasy value. Plus, it usually takes time for TEs to transition to the NFL game.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin finds end zone    Thu Aug 17, 11:19 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed for 30 yards and one touchdown on five carries in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Martin looked like his 2015 self, which was good enough for Top 10 running back numbers. Look for his ADP to rise despite his three-game suspension. The chances of Jacquizz Rodgers holding this job after Week 3 are going down.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston has solid outing    Thu Aug 17, 11:07 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston went 21-for-29 for 196 yards in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Winston had a few what are you doing moments, but he never seems to carry them into the next drive. He's still a boom/bust option with some upside at a very deep position in fantasy drafts.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard to focus mostly on blocking?    Tue Aug 15, 12:05 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard will most likely make his mark as a blocker - and not a receiver - early in the season, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.

Footballguys view: This report should put a damper on fantasy owners and their excitement about the rookie from Alabama. He's talented..no doubt..and a big/strong/fast presence that QB Jameis Winston could eventually rely on. However, he didn't do much in his college career unless he was playing Clemson...then he exploded for HUGE games. Howard has natural talent but is going to be splitting time at the position with Cameron Brate...a breakout player for the Bucs last year. We love Howard in dynasty, but are taking a 'wait and see' approach with the rookie in redraft leagues.

  Buccaneers | Roberto Aguayo let go    Sat Aug 12, 01:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Roberto Aguayo - the team's second-round pick in 2016 - was waived Saturday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: Well, that was an awful pick. If you move up in the second round to take a kicker he had better be a 10-year starter. Aguayo struggled as a rookie and those struggles continued into this year and the preseason. Make fun of any fantasy owners in your league that draft him off outdated paper cheatsheets.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan W. Griffin (shoulder) exited the preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Friday, Aug. 11, after landing on his throwing shoulder. 'I haven't been hurt before, so we'll see how it goes,' Griffin said.

Footballguys view: Griffin is competing for a backup spot behind Jameis Winston. We should see Ryan Fitzpatrick be the primary backup to Winston, but Griffin was trying to impress enough to make the 53-man roster.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Jude Adjei-Barimah (knee) suffered a patellar fracture in his right knee and will undergo surgery, according to a source. The surgery could happen as early as next week, although Adjei-Barimah is seeking a second opinion. The initial diagnosis would keep him sidelined for four months. Adjei-Barimah suffered the same injury late last season.

  Buccaneers | Jeremy McNichols needs to study    Wed Aug 9, 04:16 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie RB Jeremy McNichols needs to 'get in his playbook,' according to head coach Dirk Koetter and running backs coach Tim Spencer.

Footballguys view: McNichols is a playmaking receiving back, and with Doug Martin suspended for the first three games, he should make the team, but this is not the buzz you wanted to hear this early.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Brent Grimes (leg) went down in practice Wednesday, Aug. 9, with a lower-body injury. He walked gingerly to a cart and was driven off the field.

Footballguys view: It sounds like the injury was a laceration which is far from a worst-case scenario. Still he is a key performer on this rising defense and we will be watching this for updates to see if it will be a long-term problem.

  Buccaneers | O.J. Howard playing well    Fri Aug 4, 09:31 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard saw time with the first-team offense and the second unit during practice Friday, Aug. 4, and he caught most of the passes thrown his way and blocked well in the run game, according Joe Kania to of Buccaneers.com.

Footballguys view: Howard is a monster, even as a rookie. His speed, athleticism and acceleration are ridiculous, he can block and his overall physical upside is excellent. We don't expect Gronkowski/Kelce numbers during Howard's rookie campaign, but he is tracking as a solid TE2, and that's where we like him.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Griffin could be backup QB    Fri Aug 4, 09:26 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan W. Griffin worked mostly with the second-team offense Friday, Aug. 4, and Joe Kania of Buccaneers.com believes Griffin has a chance to beat out QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for the backup quarterback spot.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick, as Seattle corner Richard Sherman said the other day, is terrible. While backup to Winston isn't all that fantasy relevant, we figure Fitzpatrick is going to be long gone by Week 1 if he plays at all like he did in 2016.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin is having a great training camp, according to FS Chris Conte. 'You can tell he has good hands and body control,' Conte said. 'He runs great routes. He is going to be a great player for us and I think he has impressed everybody with what he has done so far in camp.'

Footballguys view: Godwin might not have redraft relevance this year unless DeSean Jackson or Mike Evans miss significant time, but all of this should be filed away in your dynasty file. Godwin might require a wait to reap the benefits, but all signs point to a bright future.

  Buccaneers | Jacquizz Rodgers could beat out Doug Martin?    Sun Jul 30, 03:16 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers has received plenty of praise from teammates and coaches about exceptional vision, toughness and his versatility, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine, who adds 'there's always the possibility' Rodgers could remain the starter after Doug Martin returns from his three-game suspension to begin the season.

Footballguys view: Rodgers has been workmanlike and steady when the Bucs have asked him to do more, but his ability to hold up for a long stretch of games under a heavy workload is unkown. As long as Martin returns to 2015 form, he should be the starter when he returns in Week 4.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin not a lock to start upon return    Sun Jul 30, 01:00 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will not be guaranteed his starting job in Week 4 when he completes the remainder of his three-game PED suspension, according to general manager Jason Licht.

Footballguys view: Martin has clearly rededicated himself this offseason, but the team still wants him to follow through in camp and the preseason to prove that they should keep him through his three game suspension, let him compete to start, and pay him almost six million dollars. He has a huge range of outcomes this year, but 2015 showed the high end is a low RB1.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston was spotted wearing a brace on his left knee Saturday, July 29, but head coach Dirk Koetter called the move 'precautionary'.

Footballguys view: Winston may have a slight limp according to some reports. The brace wasn't fitting right on Friday, and he must've gotten it right on Saturday. At the end of the day, we don't think there's much to get worried about but (as always) stay tuned.

Footballguys view: Rodgers is available in the second half of drafts and should start the first three games against at least a few weak run defenses based on last year's performances. He's a free strong flex play at his current ADP.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy saw time at right defensive end during minicamp in June, and the team hopes to use him in that spot on occasion when it uses a 3-4 defensive front this season.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are just trying to get McCoy on the field for pass-rushing opportunities as much as possible...and in as many ways as possible. He's a leader on the defense and should be projected to get around seven sacks in 2017.
